Long warranty

From early 2013, together with the rest of the Subaru range, the Outbackā€™s warranty was extended to five years or 100,000 miles. This replaced the previous warranty of three years or 60,000 miles.

In 2014 the XV had a minor facelift which included some suspension changes, interior enhancements and some extra equipment added to the SE Premium trim (previously called Lux Premium) while the pricing remained unchanged.

Does this all-new crossover have what it takes to take on both the crossover kings, including the mighty Qashqai, as well as more premium models at the higher end of the class like the BMW X1 and Audi Q2 and rugged alternatives like the Jeep Renegade, Suzuki Vitara and Skoda Yeti?
