  1. Went for a test drive the other day in a petrol CVT and was quite impressed. I know that there is a facelift due soon but the dealer wasn't sure when. Maybe trying to sell the current pre-facelift first. Anyone any idea when the 2016 facelift will be available in the UK?

    Considering an XV

    Went along to the Subaru dealer on Saturday armed with a tape measure so that I could find out the size of the boot. Length and width was okay but the height is too small, especially when a spare wheel is under the floor. Unfortunately that rules the XV out. We had a look at the Forester and the size of the boot is fine, but it's not the best looking of the Subaru range, even the dealer said the same.

    Considering an XV

    Hi, I have just joined the forum to get a bit more knowledge about the XV. I'm thinking about changing my car this year and a Subaru XV is on my shortlist. We live in the Highlands and get quite a bit of snow so four wheel drive isn't a luxury. Current car is a Freelander 2 GS Auto 2011MY owned from new. Don't like the Discovery Sport and am moving away from diesel anyway so it wouldn't be an option anyway. I intend to visit the dealers around Easter. The main things I will be looking at then will be the measurements of the boot, if a spare wheel is available (quite happy with a spacesaver) and the comfort of the seats, bit of lumbar support and not too hard. Anyway, I'll be checking out the forum when I can.

    I quite like the Outback but the electronic parking brake puts me off, that and the extra cost.

    Hi everyone!

    Hi Gambit Thanks for the welcome. I'll take your advice and post in the XV section.

    Hi everyone!

    Thanks for the reply! Does the spacesaver raise the boot floor or just the full size? Have wondered about the Forester but the 0-60 seems a bit sluggish unless I go for the XT and that's a bit pricey.
