The Top Gear car review:Subaru XV

Overall verdict
After the BRZ, this is the most interesting car Subaru makes. But then that's not really saying much.


Neat styling, classic Subaru drivetrain, extremely well equipped


Pretty expensive, overall drive lacks polish


What is it?

Smart new Subaru is a welcome right move for the brand, although the XV isn’t as polished as it could be.
