2019 Subaru Crosstrek/XV PHEV

2019 Subaru Crosstrek/XV PHEV

Interesting review of the phev xv/crosstrek.

Bad points for me? Quite a bit of boot space lost 🙁 and no flappy paddle to manually override the CVT. Would want that for the b roads.

Other bad point, so far at least, is no turbo option. Just 2.0 normally aspirated. Still want to see them try the 1.6 turbo from the levorg. I think that would make a good combo for performance and economy.

Good points? Performance sounds similar ish to diesel xv! And can run on full electric for town driving.

Unlimited business broadband from £15 a month

Real world mpg still not really known. Hoping to see 45+ but balancing that with electric for short journeys and town driving could possibly justify it.
