Birmingham, 8th January 2021 – Subaru UK is proud to announce the Subaru XV – has been awarded 4x4 Magazine’s Crossover Estate of the Year 2021. To win this award for the second time further strengthens Subaru’s on-going dedication to build cars that are incredibly safe, extremely capable and unfalteringly reliable, too.

Beating off strong competition, XV impressed the judges at 4x4 Magazine thanks to its wide range of safety technologies, superior on-road handling and impressive off-road skills thanks to its permanent Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. Something that comes as standard across the Subaru range.

Hailed by the judges for its safety credentials XV also makes an ideal family car. Perfect for outdoor sports and hobbies, weekends away, or even just the school run you know that with the maximum 5-star Euro NCAP safety rating you will be offered the very best protection for you and your family wherever you go.

Alan Kidd, Editor of 4x4 Magazine, said: "It’s one of the safest cars there is – as well as having crisp road manners and an astonishing level of off-road ability."

John Hurtig, Subaru UK Managing Director, commented: “We’re delighted that the XV has won 4x4 Magazine’s Crossover Estate of the Year 2021. We know we have a great product that our customers continue to love and trust year after year, mile after mile. Because they know that owning a Subaru means you are driving one of the safest, most capable and reliable vehicles on the road today. Something we are immensely proud of.”
