Following its unveiling at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, Subaru Australia has announced the arrival of the 2010 Subaru Impreza XV.

Similar to the US-market Impreza Outback Sport - the latest incarnation of the previous-generation Impreza RV offered locally - the Impreza XV is powered by the same 2.0 litre four-cylinder Boxer engine offered with the Impreza R, RX and RS.

Speaking with TMR recently, Subaru Australia's David Rowley said the Impreza XV has potential for a successful local launch.

"It's been known as the RV and the Sports Wagon previously, and those models found a niche in previous incarnations. The Impreza RV was a 'value-added' sale that proved worthwhile and it certainly had an audience, so we're expecting similar potential here as well."

Based on the five-door Impreza hatch, the XV Crossover measures 4430mm long, 1770mm wide and 1520mm tall, compared to the regular Impreza's 4415/1740/1475mm dimensions. Both models sit on a 2620mm wheelbase.

Those larger dimensions are courtesy of the Impreza XV's Outback-like flared guards and revised bumpers.

The Impreza XV's suspension has been tuned to complement the increased ground clearance, with changes to the stabilisers, spring rates, damping force and rear
subframe bushes.

Inside, the Impreza XV features sports bucket seats with mocha accents, iPod and Bluetooth connectivity and a 10-speaker stereo system.

It also has climate control air conditioning and leather trim steering wheel, handbrake and gear stick.

 

Pricing and Availability

The 2010 Subaru Impreza XV is available now, priced from $27,490 for the five-speed manual model and $29,490 for the four-speed automatic.

Note: pricing is Manufacturer's List Price only and does not include dealer delivery or on-road costs.
