Subaru XV 2017 Interior
Now you can see that the windscreen better. the wheelbase has been lengthened, and that means more leg room in the back. I have a height of 191 centimeters in driving position I've got enormous amounts of space right there. But the most important thing I like about the cabin changed.
The Subaru XV 2017 has a new touch screen 6.5 inch is more intuitive and much easier to use, this size for basic model. But all come with Apple CarPlay and Android auto. So much has changed in the cabin. From the smaller steering wheel, a better sound system, the more accommodating seats, the center console with new electric handbrake and deep storage bin there's a high-quality feel.

There’s also a hill descent control which works going backwards as well we tested it out during the off-road section board, I'm impressed. This is a seedy SUV but all your Drive excellent ground clearance X mode and hill descent make it much better offer than most of its rivals.

Because it uses cameras and like eyes they can't see through that stuff.
The top specs gets more standard safety stuff such as blind spot monitoring and a UV which works when you're going backwards. The new generation Subaru XV 2017 finally driven on Australian roads and also the new platform is amazing much more comfortable ride and really good
