Subaru UK has announced that its XV and Forester models are now available on the nationwide Motability scheme.

The popular scheme has to date helped more than three million disabled people to lease a new vehicle.  The addition of the Forester – Subaru’s best-selling model – and the XV will be a welcome expansion of choice.

The vehicles are well suited to the scheme as, like all Subaru vehicles, they have gained hard-earned reputations for practicality, ease of use, build quality and reliability. They are also among the safest SUVs on the road, their unique symmetrical All-wheel drive system bestowing high levels of grip and traction complimented by five-star Euro NCAP and among the highest ratings for occupant protection.

The Subaru XV crossover has been noted for its practicality, performance and fuel economy and was awarded ‘SUV of the Year’ by judges on 4x4 Magazine beating off competition from Audi, Kia, Mazda, Nissan and Volkswagen. All XV’s come with a high level of equipment, specification includes ABS, traction control, Subaru Vehicle Dynamics Control (SVDC), front, side, curtain and knee airbags, 17-inch alloy wheels, daytime LED running lights and automatic air conditioning all as standard.  The SE models add cruise control, rear-view camera, Bluetooth functionality and USB/iPod connectivity. The top-of-the-range SE Lux Premium models also come with a sunroof, Keyless Smart Entry, push-button start, leather seats and satellite navigation and all 2.0-litre models are fitted with roof rails.

The Subaru Forester is a clear competitor to the Toyota Rav 4, the Honda CR-V and the LandRover Freelander. It boasts great performance, safety and efficiency and a spacious interior.  Subaru’s unique Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system remains at the heart of the Forester, while a low centre of gravity and improved body rigidity contribute to improved refinement and a typically engaging drive on the road.
