The real competitor of Tiguan in size, manufacturability, and cost. On the eve of the main competitor, Volkswagen Tiguan “blew up the brain of experts” who decided to conduct a test drive, Subaru XV. First of all, they said that the Japanese crossover is superior to the German competitor not only at the price of 1,879,000 rubles for the “minimum” and 2,359,900 million rubles for the Premium ES but also in size and manufacturability.
For example, the basic package includes ERA-GLONASS, Start-Stop, X-Mode, as well as knee and side airbags for the driver and passengers, rain and light sensors, and dynamic vehicle stabilization.
As for the exterior, the Subaru XV was equipped with LED headlights, a stylish “shark fin”, 17-inch alloy wheels and a roof spoiler with integrated brake light.
“Queen of the rally or retirement?”, Until recently, motorists thought. But as soon as they got behind the wheel of the characteristic “Japanese”, there was no doubt. Under the hood of the Subaru XV is the original 1.6 and 2.0-liter boxer engines with 114 and 150 horsepower, which are paired with all-wheel drive and a continuously variable transmission.
Moreover, the gasoline “engine” allows the Subaru XV to accelerate to 175 kilometers an hour, while the crossover spends 8.2 liters for every 100 kilometers in the city. True, despite all the pros, the experts managed to find several disadvantages that are not in the same Tiguan Firstly, this is a gas tank in the style of AvtoVAZ. Secondly – a low-capacity luggage compartment and thirdly – a thin paint and varnish coating, which also makes relatives of the “Japanese samurai” with “Russian basins”.
