As expected, the production XV appears largely unchanged from its concept progenitor, with only its large wheels and tinted tail-lights swapped out for market-friendly replacements.
Subaru has also confirmed the inevitable: power for the XV will be provided by the company's new third-generation 2.0 litre four-cylinder Boxer petrol engine, mated to a Lineartronic CVT automatic transmission.

Subaru has also released a handful of details for its all-new BRZ Prologue sports car, confirming a 4200mm overall length, 1770mm width and 1270mm height. Wheelbase is listed at 2570mm.
Power will be provided by Subaru's 2.0 litre direct-injected naturally-aspirated Boxer engine, although power and performance figures have not been revealed.
The news follows the unveiling in April of the Boxer Sports Car Architecture, a basic coupe framework and engine housed teasingly in a featureless transparent body.
While it is unclear whether the Frankfurt concept will offer a better look at the car's final design, Subaru has confirmed that production will commence in early 2012.
