The current Subaru XV is sleek, practical and a pretty fun crossover to throw around corners. You know what else? The all-new one will be arriving in the Philippines soon. But does this mean the first-gen vehicle is obsolete?

The answer is no, not at all. It still packs Subaru's sprightly boxer engine, and its AWD system is still one of the best in the business, begging you to play hooligan behind the wheel. NVH levels still impress, as does the vehicle's versatile good looks and dark, minimalist interior. Long story short, the current XV is still a great crossover. Hey, it's not called "Forester lite" for nothing, right?

While many motorists might be looking forward to the arrival of the all-new XV, current owners and those looking to buy one sooner rather than later have nothing to be sad about. Want to see more of this Japanese crossover? Just press play on the video above.
