Significant enhancement to the body and chassis rigidity, offering unprecedented levels of driving pleasure, agility, crash protection and ride comfort.

A lighter, improved Lineartronic transmission delivers better acceleration performance and sharper dynamic qualities.

  • The all-new Subaru XV

The fun-to-drive Subaru XV combines a bold new design with a highly capable chassis for versatility on and off the road. The new platform, together with the Subaru BOXER engine, SAWD and EyeSight Driver Assist Technology offer enhanced driving performance, safety, capability, and ride comfort.

The new Subaru XV will be available in the European markets with an all-new version of the 2.0-litre 4-cylinder boxer engine direct fuel injection and a 1.6-litre 4-cylinder boxer engine. A revised Lineartronic transmission now comes standard with driver-selectable X-Mode to provide even better wheel control on slippery surfaces and steep inclines.

  • Forester with EyeSight

The 2018 Forester is now available with Subaruís highly-rated EyeSight Driver Assist Technology resulting in outstanding preventive safety features. Forester adds to its increased safety package the Side View Monitor, a camera mounted in the passenger side mirror helping the driver to manoeuvre under various situations in poor visibility such as when driving closer to objects.

  • Levorg

The 2018 Levorg is equipped with Subaruís latest advanced safety technologies: a Smart Rearview Mirror, Front and Rear View Monitors with cameras projecting the vehicleís front and rear view increasing better visibility to help prevent collisions. Additionally, Levorg is now updated with LED lamps with steering responsive headlights, a feature that lights up corners by automatically directing the headlights to the side in response to steering.

The combination of the new Brembo*3 high-performance brakes and cross-drilled rotors offers to the WRX STI a superior fade-resistance and braking performance.

The interior and exterior received a major makeover. The front face was fixed with an updated front grill that increases the WRX STI sporty, aggressive stance.
