The tested model of Subaru XV was first introduced in Australia and New Zealand in May 2017. Hybrid variants were added to the XV model range in January 2020. The ANCAP safety rating for the XV is based on crash tests of the Subaru Impreza. ANCAP was provided with technical information which showed that the crash test results of the Impreza apply to the XV. This ANCAP safety rating applies to all XV variants including hybrids.
Dual frontal, side chest-protecting and side head-protecting airbags (curtains) and a driver knee airbag are standard. Autonomous emergency braking (AEB) and lane support systems (LSS) are not available on the base variant but are optional or standard on higher variants.
