Subaru has updated its compact crossover, the XV.

Visible changes include new dials with an upgraded LCD display and metallic trim around the central console.

All models will now come with an improved infotainment system as standard. It’s controlled by a 7.0-inch touchscreen and comes with sat-nav, two USB ports and voice control functionality.

Standard specification includes alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, a reversing camera, Bluetooth and automatic lights and wipers.

Subaru has tweaked the front and rear suspension for a smoother ride and to reduce vibration into the cabin. It has also aimed to improve refinement by adding more sound-deadening material and using thicker glass in the front windows.

Prices for the Subaru XV remain unchanged, with the entry-level 2.0i SE model starting at £21,995. The upgraded models go on sale later this month.
