News I By John Beltz Snyder I August 10, 2011
Subaru is coyly giving us a peek at its new urban crossover, the Subaru XV. Set to debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show on September 13, it will be the production version of the XV Concept Subaru showed in Shanghai.
 
Beyond that, Subaru is keeping mum for now on any more details about the new addition to the lineup, though the concept featured a 2.0-liter boxer engine and continuously variable transmission. The image gives us a glimpse of the headlight and wheel, as well as a suggestion of the wheel arch, front bumper, grille and hood.
