For just a little bit more money, the Subaru XV GT Edition gives you more equipment in a car that's already well suited to daily life. What's not to like?

Go anywhere in comfort and safety  
 
My 3rd Subaru after 15 years of turbocharged subies. Sometimes lack the power i am used to when I need it which is not often. Most times adequate and is quick off the line. Best thing is I can rev the engine as hard as I want without fearing money draining away. And if you know the tricks of driving a subie, you are never lacking power delivery most times, which is fine by me. And by the way, this is a very safe, smooth and comfortable car.

Never forget its lifted Impreza roots  
 
Arresting, butch flared fenders and aggressive SUV-size tyres give the XV great road presence. Alas, this at its core a lifted/CVT Impreza 2.0 hatchback, and this concept robs it of many practicalities expected of SUVs. Main selling points are value-for-money price, standard Active Safety (EyeSight), looks, 2.0 capacity and AWD. It's not unique though. Bear in mind Honda Sensing and Toyota Safety Sense standard on some PI Vezel & C-HRs. Static - Positive: 1. Ample legroom front and rear, nice extra width over smaller cars 2. Interior materials and build is decently impressive, intuitive infotainment and modern/robust materials. A real improvement for Subaru. Negative: 1. Entry is awkward compared to normal car or SUV. High car floor and low roof (Impreza low roof) means you lift your leg + bend down at the same time. You only do one of either for a car or SUV. 2. Short rear seatback 3. Impreza hatch tailgate opening is high - higher XV makes access even harder. You will struggle to load heavy luggage without scratching the bumper. 4. Boot is only 380 litres vs 338 litres of smaller HRV 5. No spare tyre Driving: 1. Initially smooth CVT, seamless. But jerky at low speeds/manouevring 2. Decent torque off the line, but expected for 2.0NA. 3. Revving to 3k 4. Less body roll when u-turning than expected. More confidence-inspiring 5. Despite double wishbone rear, suspension is jarringly stiff. High ride height and big profile, but ride is as hard in the rear as the low Mazda3 Elegance on low profile 45-section 18 inch tyres.
