PT. TC Subaru, the authorized distributor of Subaru in Indonesia, launched the Subaru XV, a new generation crossover model that redefines and blends exceptional SUV practicality with a fashionable form.
The Subaru XV marketed in Indonesia will be assembled and imported from Malaysia and is the first Subaru model to roll off the production lines at an existing production facility of Tan Chong Motor Assemblies Sdn. Bhd (TCMA). The same model will also be available in Thailand and Malaysia.
Specifically designed for customers looking for a vehicle that offers looks and functionality, stretching beyond those of existing crossover models, the new Subaru XV is defined by five characteristics:
- Sleek but Muscular Design
- Environmental Performance and Nimble Drive
- Improved visibility and reduction of blind angles for enhanced safety
- Spacious, Relaxing Cabin and Cargo Space
- Performance and Equipment Suited to Urban Life
The Subaru XV 2.0i comes with the all-new Subaru Boxer engine, providing excellent acceleration response with a high level of torque even at low speeds. Already in its third generation, Subaru’s highly acclaimed horizontally opposed engine now features a long- stroke design for better fuel efficiency. Thanks to Subaru’s symmetrical AWD (All-Wheel Drive) system, the drive delivers a sense of stability that would not normally be expected of a high-body vehicle.
The 2.0-litre Boxer engine with Lineartronic CVT gearbox has brought about improvements in fuel efficiency and exhaust performance. The engine enables excellent accelerating performance and responsiveness, which allows drivers to experience a feeling of instant acceleration when the accelerator is lightly depressed.
With a low centre-of-gravity, the XV delivers an unexpectedly smooth ride, considering its body height. The playful XV design is characterised by a fusion of powerful lower body motif and a stylish urban form. Just like running shoes, it achieves a fusion of casual and function, with a dash of fashion.
“We are confident that the new Subaru XV is going to be a hit.” says Mr. Glenn Tan, President Director of PT. TC Subaru. “The specifications fit very well for the Indonesia market and the price is very affordable for an All-Wheel Drive SUV. The XV marries the best of both worlds that drivers have been waiting for, by fulfilling modern practical needs and economy, with a combination of the sense of security and urban looks expected of an SUV. This is the car that any Indonesian family should have – stylish and spacious, but durable, safe and fuel efficient.”
The new Subaru XV retailing from Rp. 338 million (XV 2.0i) to Rp 359 million (XV 2.0i Premium), the Subaru XV is now available at Motor Image showrooms and dealers located at Pondok Indah, Kelapa Gading, Pluit, Alam Sutera, Bali, Batam, Surabaya, Medan, Pekanbaru, Balikpapan, Samarinda, Padang, Bandung, Solo, Banjarmasin and Manado.
