Subaru continues pricing roll-back | XV now from $26,490

PRICES have dropped as part of an update to the popular Subaru XV range .

The entry-level 2.0i model now has a retail price of $26,490. That marks a $1250 reduction after the Japanese already lopped $750 off the price back in January when the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with Japan came into effect. 

Subaru also says it has improved interior quality and enhanced infotainment on all models.

The XV 2.0i-L and 2.0i-S pricing has also been reduced. Previously priced at $31,990 plus on-roads, the 2.0i-L dropped $750 in January due to the FTA, and now comes down a further $1250 to $29,990.

The 2.0i-S has also dropped $2000 since January to $32,490.

This follows price reductions on Forester and Impreza, as well as aggressive pricing on the Liberty and Outback models which were launched on January 1 this year.

"The small SUV segment is highly competitive and with this realignment, and all the extra equipment, we are confident of growing XV sales.

"Combine those virtues with Subaru's Japanese build quality and design, and it's another positive move to ensure the optimum result for our customers.

"The price drops of $2000 across the entire XV range, come with added features, including improved interiors and infotainment."

Inside the XV a number of changes have been made to improve the overall quality, including all-new infotainment and enhancements.
