Subaru Australia has further sharpened the pricing of its hot selling XV compact crossover for 2015, trimming up to $1,250 off the already reduced prices from December last year as a result of the Federal Government’s Free Trade Agreement with Japan.
The entry level XV 2.0i model drops $1250 to $26,490 excluding on-roads, meaning a $2000 price drop since December, including $750 when the FTA came into effect.
