Subaru Impreza XV arriving in NZ mid year

Subaru’s newest model, the Impreza XV, which has just been launched at the Geneva Motor Show, will be available in New Zealand towards the middle of the year.

The Impreza XV isn’t a totally street-focussed machine and will apparently combine road performance with recreational styling.

Only one engine will be available a two-litre model with the choice of manual or automatic transmission and naturally symmetrical All Wheel Drive will be standard.

Among the features unique to Impreza XV are wheel arch extensions, roof rails, grille, and interior trim. Black wheel arch flares and side sills give the Impreza XV an off-road look. A large rear spoiler extends down both sides of the rear window, while black aluminium roof rails feature up top.

Suspension spring and damper rates are slightly firmer than the standard Impreza models, while retaining a quality ride. The Impreza XV sits on 16-inch alloy wheels with 205/55R16 tyres.

New Zealand versions will be optimized for local conditions by having a greater ride height than the European specification cars shown in Geneva

Standard safety features will include Vehicle Dynamics Control with ABS brakes, Electronic Brake-force Distribution and Brake Assist. There are six air bags and Subaru’s patented ring shaped reinforcement frame body shell.

Complete specification details and pricing will be announced at the time of the Impreza XV’s launch in New Zealand.
