Grip : GRIP November 2012
AWARDS GRIP XV WINS TOP UK SUV AWARD THE Forester has been a multi-award winner for Subaru across the years, and now the All-Wheel Drive Subaru XV has started to collect awards for excellence across the globe, being recently named ‘SUV of the Year’ by 4x4 Magazine in the United Kingdom. Putting the XV through its paces, both on and off- road, 4x4 Magazine crowned the XV its class winner in one of the hardest-fought categories in a special ‘4x4 of the Year’ issue. The UK SUV market has expanded rapidly in recent years with the proliferation of compact crossovers, and 4x4 Magazine placed Subaru’s latest AWD model ahead of key rivals from Audi, Kia, Mazda, Nissan and Volkswagen. The judging panel, which comprised of members of the magazine’s editorial team, praised the XV’s ‘enjoyable’ and ‘involving’ drive, fuel economy and off- road ability. Commenting on the XV’s victory, Nigel Fryatt, Editor of 4x4 Magazine, said: “The SUV class in 4x4 Magazine’s 4x4 of the Year test is one of the most competitive. The Subaru XV was an interesting new arrival in that class, which did much to impress judges. “For a vehicle which obviously spends most of its time on-road, it is such an enjoyable drive, involving the driver in a positive manner. It also boasts promising fuel economy potential. “When we took it off-road, given the obvious limitations of ground clearance, the Subaru completed our test route with ease.” SUBARU’S BRZ sports car has captured another award, being named 2013 Sports Car of the Year by Canadian website Auto123.com. A panel of 10 voting journalists from Auto123.com cumulated their scores in each of the 20 vehicle categories. Auto123.com is Canada’s leading automotive web portal for news, reviews and independent road tests. Auto123.com considered all 2013 model-year vehicles that are on sale in the Canadian market (at the time of voting), not just all-new or redesigned models. “This is another big win for our Subaru BRZ,” s aid Shiro Ohta, president and CEO of Subaru Canada, Inc.
