Subaru Updates 2015 XV Crosstrek with New Infotainment and Safety Techs

Subaru said it release the 2015MY versions of its XV Crosstrek and XV Crosstrek Hybrid crossovers with equipment and tech upgrades in the US this December.

The 2015MYs get a new standard infotainment system that in the case of the 2.0i, 2.0i Premium and Hybrid models, employs a 6.2-inch touch screen display with rear vision camera, swipe and scroll multi-function control for audio and other features.

The new 2.0i Premium with Subaru’s EyeSight driver assist technology, 2.0i Limited and Hybrid Touring models get a bigger 7.0-inch multi touch gesture display screen, along with SiriusXM Satellite Radio (subscription required), voice activated controls and dual USB ports. They also get a new color LCD in the gauge cluster.

Additionally, all EyeSight-equipped models obtain new Steering Responsive fog lights as standard.

The 2015MY XVs keep the same looks and engine choices as their 2014MY predecessors. Pricing is to be announced.
