Subaru XV 2018 Review: 2.0i-S


More than two decades ago, back when Subaru was still bathing in the glory of its World Rally Championship successes, the Japanese brand decided to take a risk on releasing a jacked-up Impreza hatchback, adding a boxy wagon body but keeping the rugged all-wheel-drive bits underneath.

\n

They called it the Forester, and it was a runaway success for Subaru. But it has grown over the years, too, leaving a gap in the lineup where the original Forester once stood. Enter, then, the XV, which again looks like a jacked-up Impreza, only this time without the extra length. 

\n

The XV is now well into its second generation, and it has shown no signs of letting up in the sales race. So we spent a week in the top-spec S model to see what all this fuss is about.
