|Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC)||
||The Subaru XV Crosstrek features a standard VDC (VDC is also known as electronic stability control) system with advanced sensors to monitor and analyze if the vehicle is following the driver’s intended course. When the limits of stability are approached, the system automatically adjusts the AWD torque distribution (Models equipped with CVT only), engine output and brakes at each wheel to help keep the vehicle on-course. This system gives drivers of all abilities the feeling of added security and increased confidence under all possible scenarios.|
|Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)||
||The ABS on the XV Crosstrek incorporates the latest thinking on anti-skid prevention, as well as other advanced features designed with added safety in mind. For example, Electronic Brake-force Distribution automatically adjusts front/rear brake pressure for consistent performance under different vehicle loads. Brake Override cuts engine power when the brakes and accelerator are applied simultaneously. Brake Assist automatically provides added stopping power in panic-braking situations. These advances combine to create a braking system that is a powerful confidence-builder.|
|Advanced Ring-shaped Reinforcement Frame||
||This design strengthens the passenger compartment by linking the roof to the side pillars and the floor, creating a protective safety cell that dissipates impact energy and diverts it away from the passenger cabin. A front crumple zone and an engine designed to slide under the passenger compartment provide further protection in the event of a frontal impact. The latest version of this design utilizes revised rear door beams to further reduce the chance of intrusion into the cabin and additional reinforcements to absorb collision energy more efficiently.|
||The XV Crosstrek features a full complement of supplemental restraints, including dual-stage deployment front airbags, a driver knee airbag, front seat-mounted side-impact airbags and side-curtain airbags for front and rear outboard occupants. This focus on passive safety is an integral part of the Subaru offering — and always will be.|
|Injury-reducing Seats and Seatbelt Systems||
||The front seats utilize frames, energy-absorbing mounting and active headrests to reduce the chance of whiplash. Height-adjustable front seatbelts with lap and shoulder pretensioners hold passengers firmly in place, while load limiters ease peak forces to the chest. The ISO-FIX/LATCH system helps secure younger passengers riding in compatible child safety seats.|
At the core of the 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek is the stuff of legend: the SUBARU BOXER engine, the Subaru symmetrical full-time AWD system, a low centre of gravity created by that system’s design and a long-travel independent suspension. This core technology is the reason why this unique crossover delivers agile handling, superior manoeuvrability, dynamic all-road/all-weather capability, and a level of confidence and genuine fun behind the wheel that is unmatched in its class.
|The Mighty SUBARU BOXER Engine||
||The 2.0L naturally aspirated 4-cylinder SUBARU BOXER delivers effortless, efficient and exhilarating driving. The design of this engine creates natural balance and smoothness, the free-breathing intake and free-flowing exhaust enhance overall performance, and the Dual Active Valve Control System produces dynamic low-end response. The engineers at Subaru painstakingly reviewed the operation of every valve, port and piston to create a lightweight engine that uses less fuel while still achieving impressive performance and superior drivability. Whether paired with the Lineartronic® CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) or the 5-speed manual, the XV Crosstrek delivers sparkling fuel efficiency and a fantastically fun time behind the wheel.|

|5-speed Manual Transmission (5MT)||
||The 5MT is linked to a viscous-coupling limited-slip centre differential that provides near neutral handling and maximum control for the driver. Crisp, intuitive and direct, this transmission is tailor-made for those seeking sporty satisfaction from their time behind the wheel.|
|Lineartronic® CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission)||
||This transmission is linked to a multi-plate transfer clutch AWD system that offers predictable handling and automatically shifts torque to the back wheels to balance power distribution under hard acceleration or in low-traction conditions. The lightweight CVT, which offers a 6-speed manual mode with paddle shifters, provides a seamless shift feel, is highly responsive at all engine speeds and helps make the XV Crosstrek incredibly fuel-efficient for an AWD crossover. A hill holder system is also included.|
The MacPherson front strut-type suspension system features stabilizer bars for greater stability, direct response and improved driver feedback. This design, combined with a very wide track, give the XV Crosstrek crisp steering, remarkable handling and a surprisingly composed ride, making it an inspired choice for all types of adventures in and out of the city. This unique crossover also boasts a healthy 220 mm of ground clearance, which translates into excellent capability over rough roads as well.
The double-wishbone rear suspension utilizes stabilizer bars for a smoother ride and a truly stable feeling – especially in the corners and particularly for a crossover. The rear bushings and shock absorbers have been fine-tuned to minimize harshness, producing a comfortable ride that manages to soak up bumps easily, yet still give the XV Crosstrek a genuinely sporty edge. This suspension system is also designed to not encroach into the cargo area, so it also preserves storage space.
