Who are Subaru?
Established in 1958, when their first car the Kei was designed to tackle the narrow streets of Tokyo, Japanese car manufacturers Subaru have grown to become a niche leader in the tough all-wheel drive and affordable sports car markets.
Following a successful history of rally racing, in 1992 Subaru launched the first Impreza. The Impreza still remains a firm favourite for Subaru fans, while the company’s main focus lies with AWD technology and the crossover SUV market.
The all-new XV, rated by EuroNCAP as the ‘safest small family car in Europe 2017’, offers a great all-round performance and is a firm favourite with families who want a reliable crossover with impressive AWD capabilities.
