Subaru has implemented several revisions to its XV crossover which has now reached 2014 model year in UK.

The moderately updated XV is scheduled to go on sale in United Kingdom this month with lower levels of noise, vibration and harshness (NVH). The versions equipped with the 2.0-liter gasoline engine also benefit from new valve-train components designed to diminish engine noise along with several suspension modifications that have improved ride quality. Also for reducing perceived engine noise, Subaru has installed additional sound-proofing material in the bulkhead to better insulate the cabin.

The Subaru XV compact crossover now comes with an updated electronic power steering which has improved feel and stability thanks to a dynamic damper system that reduces steering wheel and column vibrations. The engineers have also reshaped the front suspension lower-arm which is now thicker while around the A-pillar are additional reinforcements to make the XV safer.

For the cabin there's now a tire pressure monitoring system, an instrument cluster gear shift indicator, silver surrounds for the heater and steering wheel buttons, together with glossy black switches for the AC system.

Pricing in UK kicks off at 21,995 GBP for the entry-level 2.0i SE model and goes all the way up to 25,995 GBP for the range-topping 2.0D SE Premium trim.
