Subaru is showing the “next XV” on Facebook, saying the small raised wagon will be shown in Geneva on March 7.
The current model was known as the XV Crosstrek when it came out, but now it is just called the Crosstrek. Subaru is likely using the XV name in its teaser because that is the name of the vehicle in other markets. We expect it will still be called Crosstrek in the U.S. No model year is given, but we are guessing 2018.
The timing is right for a new Crosstrek because Subaru showed an XV Concept at last year’s Geneva show and the compact Impreza sedan upon which it is based has recently been redesigned. The all-new next-generation Impreza is hitting dealers right now and it features several upgrades over the last generation models.
