SUV CAPABILITY. HYBRID PERFORMANCE – the XV e-BOXER, the first generation of SUBARU’s self-charging hybrid SUV range. XV e-BOXER combines an electric motor and a 2.0L e-BOXER petrol engine. Additional power from a compact, lightweight Lithium-ion battery enhances driving responsiveness, refinement and terrain-gripping torque. There’s no need to plug in to recharge: the petrol engine charges the battery whilst you drive. Power assistance from the electric motor – Motor Assist – is completely automatic. It works seamlessly with the e-BOXER engine to give you a smoother, more efficient and rewarding drive.
Built on the SUBARU Global Platform, XV enjoys SUBARU’s latest advanced driver assistance systems and passenger safety technologies, including EyeSight driver assistance. SUBARU’s permanent Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive with X-MODE ensures go-anywhere capability. Expect surefooted handling and all-weather grip. Rugged reliability is in SUBARU’s DNA. You’ll experience it in XV mile after mile.
EyeSight*, SUBARU’s cutting-edge driving support system, like a second pair of eyes for the road ahead. EyeSight uses two stereo cameras capturing three-dimensional colour images with excellent image recognition, nearly as capable as the human eye. More accurate than traditional camera and sensor technologies, EyeSight uses images from both cameras to precisely determine shape, speed and distance, meaning it not only detects vehicles but also motorbikes, bicycles and pedestrians. When a potential hazard is identified, it warns the driver and even applies the brakes if necessary, to help avoid an accident.
