Subaru UK is making its XV compact crossover even more affordable by introducing an interest-free finance offer on some variants of the model and significant price reductions on others.

  • Three years’ interest-free credit on Subaru XV 2.0-litre diesel models
  • £1,300 price reduction on all Subaru XV 1.6-litre petrol models

Until 30th June 2013, buyers of the XV 2.0-litre diesel can take advantage of three years’ 0% credit. Separately from this, and with no time limitations, all XVs with 1.6-litre petrol engines have been reduced in price by £1,300.

The interest-free finance offer – for the XV 2.0D S, 2.0D SE and 2.0D SE Lux Premium models – includes delivery, registration plates, 12 months’ road fund licence and first registration fee. As an example, the £24,295 XV 2.0D S will require a deposit of £5,876 followed by 36 monthly payments of £295 and a final payment of £7,799.

The four XV variants with 1.6-litre petrol engines, which previously ranged in price from £21,295 to £24,715, now range from £19,995 to £23,415.

Noted for its practicality, performance and fuel economy, the XV was acclaimed as ‘SUV of the Year’ by the expert judges on 4×4 Magazine, ahead of rivals from Audi, Kia, Mazda, Nissan and Volkswagen.

All XVs offer a high level of standard equipment and Subaru’s permanent Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. The XV has a five-star Euro NCAP crash safety rating and one of the highest scores for child protection (90%) in its segment. It also has high ground clearance but with one of the lowest centres of gravity for an SUV, which contributes to its keen handling and road-holding..

Haydn Davies, Marketing Director, Subaru UK, said: “The XV has been equally well received by loyal Subaru buyers and customers new to the brand. Keener pricing and zero-per cent credit can only further strengthen its appeal.”
