We mentioned last month that the new Subaru Forester was on the way to Colin Appleyard, providing a quality 4x4 from just £24,995 (or £299/month subject to status). It's more sporty, more spacious more comfortable, and – above all - safer than the rest of the pack, and comes with the kind of uncompromising build quality we've come to expect from Subaru.

Also in our product line is the Subaru XV, 4x4 magazine's 4x4 of the year, and an absolute steal from £21,995. All wheel drive for adventurous driving – whether it's off-road or just to nip down to the corner shop, it's a class car that deserves all the recognition it gets.

And now there's good news for Motability drivers, as Subaru announces that both the Forester and the XV will be added to the nationwide motability scheme.
Subaru UK say that both models are well suited to the scheme "due to their reputations for practicality, ease of use, build quality and reliability".
Paul Tunnicliffe, managing director of Subaru UK, told Fleet News that "We are pleased to be able to offer two of our most practical cars under Motability, a scheme which benefits thousands of people in the UK every year". He told the website that both the XV and the Forester will be particularly popular with Motability drivers "with their excellent safety and reliability record, high levels of practicality and ‘go-anywhere’ All-Wheel Drive abilities."

Motability helps drivers with disabilities afford a car which will help them live fuller, more enriching lives. The scheme has helped more than three million people so far, with over 600,000 cars on the road at the present time. Members also gets insurance benefits, servicing, maintenance and full breakdown assistance.

The Subaru range on Motability is available at Colin Appleyard, and starts with an advance from £1,999 which – as you'd expect – gets you a lot of car. We think Subaru are an impressive addition to the Motability range, and we'd be happy to speak to you about your motoring needs on Subaru, Nissan or Suzuki vehicles.
