Subaru XV Crossover awarded 4×4 magazine ‘Crossover Estate of the Year 2019’

Subaru Ireland is pleased to announce the Subaru XV Crossover has been awarded 4×4 Magazine’s ‘Crossover Estate of the Year 2019’, a testimony to Subaru’s on-going commitment to build cars that are incredibly safe, extremely capable and unfalteringly reliable, too.

Beating off strong competition in its category, XV Crossover impressed the judging panel at 4×4 Magazine across the board. The safety credentials and suitability of the XV Crossover as a family car were praised, with reference to XV Crossover being Euro NCAP’s highest-scoring vehicle of all time for child occupant protection at the time of its launch.

XV Crossover was also admired for its off-road credentials, the unique combination of Subaru’s permanent Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and Boxer engine proven to provide unrivalled capability in mud and rough terrain.

X-Mode with Hill Descent Control, standard on all models in the range, was also noted to be very effective in particularly challenging conditions.

4×4 Magazine also recognised that Subaru’s new Global Platform, which will underpin all new model introductions going forward, results in further improvements to the sure-footed combination of grip, feel and sharpness for which Subaru is famed, giving XV Crossover exceptional ride and refinement.

Alan Kidd, Editor of 4×4 Magazine, said:“The new XV builds on the company’s already formidable strengths. It’s a very, very fine vehicle with a price tag that makes it the best 4×4 estate you can buy.”

Subaru UK Managing Director, Chris Graham commented:“We are delighted that the XV Crossover has won 4×4 Magazine’s Crossover Estate of the Year 2019. This award is testimony to a great product that our customers love and trust to get themselves, and their families, safely from A to B, whatever the conditions. We’re proud to produce some of the safest, most capable and reliable vehicles on the market today.”
