Still eyeing the Subaru XV? The refreshed version, thankfully, costs this much

Still as tempting as ever

New Subaru XV

On a rainy Tuesday night last month, Motor Image Pilipinas, the official distributor of Subaru vehicles in the country, unveiled two models. First, the all-new Levorg was officially introduced to our market, and then a refreshed XV was announced.

The refreshed XV on display took a shower that evening, so we weren't able to take photos. What you see here is a picture of the face-lifted version taken in Thailand. The cosmetic makeover may not be immediately evident in the exterior, but the changes manifest themselves once you step inside the cabin. You may read our first impressions here.

The good news is that the new XV didn't get a price bump. The 2.0i variant still costs P1,298,000, while the 2.0i Premium still has a P1,478,000 price tag.

The XV used to sell like hotcakes. But with so many new models on the market now, this Subie has gone down on the short lists of most car-shoppers. Thankfully, potential owners now get the option of an improved XV without the attendant price increase.
