Subaru XV 2020 hybrid sports car review

Subaru finally entered the era of electricity, and launched its first hybrid in Australia this year, including 2020 Subaru XV hybrids. It couldn't have come at a better time for Japanese automakers, as the hybrid drive has become increasingly popular with consumers

Subaru XV Hybrid 2020 price

 Under test there is $ 35,580 plus costs on the road, making it the second most expensive XV in the range, and sitting right under the XV 2.0i-S of $ 36,530. Don't be fooled into believing you are getting similar levels of equipment as found in the upper range, though, the XV Hybrid is more in line with the initial level of $ 29,240 in standard terms. Battery technology is not cheap, it seems


Standard grades shared with basic spec XV include 17-inch alloys (although 2.0i score back-up in space saving, while Hybrid is in line with a repair package), halogen headlights, and climate control in one area, 6.5 Inch touch screen with Apple CarPlay / Android Auto, Bluetooth connectivity, DAB + radio, CD player and one USB point (models reach higher than second order


XV Hybrid is missing some great details like satellite navigation, heated seats, leather upholstery, dual-zone climate control, and the larger 8 '' touchscreen found in other variants in the range

Safety and Security Factors Subaru XV



XV Hybrid Record the brand's EyeSight driver assistance system that includes adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and lane maintenance assistance, independent emergency braking and vehicle startup alert (letting you know if the vehicle ahead is moving) , Learn about brake light. It is a comprehensive suite backed by a full suite of airbags and a five-star ANCAP rating


If XV Hybrid looks more disorganized than its pure gasoline counterparts, it's because while it shares the wheelbase, length, track, and width with its positions, it's actually shorter in height 20mm, 1595mm versus 1615mm. This is only due to the XV Hybrid that has some slim roof rails unlike the more dense iterations on other XVs in the range. Lagoon Blue paint exclusive to Hybrid, one of 10 colors available, all options at no cost. There are no other options available. What you see is what you get

Inside, the XV Hybrid presents well. There’s a certain sportiness to the interior that really underlines the XV’s youthful and urban vibe. Despite missing out on leather trim, the ‘Premium’ cloth seats, finished in charcoal with a smattering of orange contrast stitching, look good and offer plenty of support

There are plenty of yielding surfaces, while the faux carbon-weave accents aren’t overdone. They look good and enhance the sporty vibe inside. There’s a solidity to the cabin that’s hard not to be impressed by

And while the 6.5-inch central touchscreen is on the low-rent side, there’s a secondary 6.3-inch LCD screen nestled into the dash top that displays a wealth of information including climate control, fuel economy and trip information, audio info, and EyeSight functions. And just to be sure you’re getting all the info you need from your XV, a 4.2-inch screen between the analogue dials provides more data: digital speedo, eco gauge, EyeSight functions, and tyre pressures. You’ll never be left wanting for information

With a lot of space in all major areas - toe, knee, leg and head - though it lacks any meaningful amenities like ventilation holes and any type of charging points. There is privacy glass on the back though, as well as two cup holders on the foldable armrest. Front and back door pockets feature integrated bottle holders



Thanks to the battery that lives under the boot floor instead of a spare wheel, the XV Hybrid boot space measures 345 liters (or 919 liters with the second row folded in a 60:40 way). This is much larger than the rest of the XV range, which measures at 310L / 765L. No measurements are leading in its class, with no stretch


Unfortunately, the XV's hybrid power is not generated. Under the hood, a 2.0-liter (1995cc) four-cylinder petrol engine from Subaru lies with 110 kilowatts (at 6000 rpm) and 196 Nm (at 4,000 rpm). This is reinforced by a 12.3 kW and 66 Nm electric motor inside the seven-speed Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT) in XV

The electric motor feeding is a lithium-ion battery of 4.8 amps / hour, 118.4 volts installed on the rear axle under the boot floor (thus there is no spare wheel). The battery group weighs 24.5 kg. Subaru does not quote built-in power outputs. What Subaru quotes is the potential fuel efficiency

XV Hybrid has an improved fuel consumption compared to equivalent gasoline variants of 14 percent in an urban environment and 7 percent in a combined cycle, warning that "fuel consumption is based on testing according to ADR81 / 02. ADR-based fuel consumption figures are for comparison purposes" Only actual results may not reflect due to variables such as driving conditions and driving style. " Basic

Subaru XV Hybrid is a beautiful thing to drive. There is some stimulus from the powertrain, and CVT is one of the best iterations of this industriously boring - and often prospecting - technology that we took from samples

Provides concrete electric motor. The CVT, for its part, is quiet and unobtrusive inside the cabin - not something to say about every CVT on the market

XV Hybrid and larger Forester Hybrid model share their engine and engine, and while the larger Forester often feels less engine, the XV looks more fit

XV rides well, staying implanted and hard on the road, while most of the rash and scars are brilliantly ironed. Some corners crowd and permanent all-wheel drive provides guarantee under the wheel on the road, as well as some off-road stability. Can you take the off-road hybrid xv hybrid? Perhaps not, but it is fully adaptable to dirt roads and perhaps some lighter tracks
