Subaru Australia’s jacked-up XV line-up follows its regular Impreza sibling this week with reduced pricing and new features across the range.

The price of entry into the range has dropped to $26,490 plus on-road costs, which - combined with an earlier $750 cut that Subaru introduced on the back of Australia’s Free Trade Agreement with Japan - marks a $2000 saving over the 2014 XV range.

That saving continues across the 2015 line-up, with $2000 (including the FTA discount) cut from the mid-spec 2.0i-L and top-shelf 2.0i-S models, now priced from $29,990 and $32,490 respectively.

Subaru says it has boosted the value equation further with an upgrade to the XV’s infotainment system.

That means a new 6.2 inch touchscreen display in the entry 2.0i model, while the 2.0i-L and 2.0i-S get a larger and now more cleanly integrated 7.0 inch display.

Other tweaks in the cabin includes new steering-wheel switches, new silver accents to the air-conditioning dials and vents, and metallic accents to the front door arm rests.

There’s also now two 5V DC USB charging ports in the rear, while the front-row USB and auxiliary ports have been relocated to beneath the audio unit.

The 2.0i-Land 2.0i-S also pick up an upgraded CVT shifter surround, new silver stitching on leather trim (previously black), and an upgraded Multi-Information Display in the instrument cluster that includes a digital speedometer, basic trip information, current gear selected and auto stop-start info.

The XV range is again powered by a 110kW/196Nm 2.0 litre four-cylinder petrol engine. Fuel consumption is rated at 7.0 with the CVT auto, and 7.3 l/100km with the six-speed manual.

Year-to-date sales for XV (end of March only; April figures due this week) show the small SUV on 2059, placing it ahead of models like the Holden Trax (1292) and the recently launched Mazda CX-3 (865), along with the Jeep Compass (808) and the Nissan Juke (744).

The segment is again led by the Mitsubishi ASX (3161), with the new Nissan Qashqai close behind on 3160.
