It’s not often that car dealers put their money where their mouth is, but Motion Beyond, a Subaru dealer based in Setia Alam did that.
In this short video, Motion Beyond put the Subaru XV through its paces, or in this case, through a water wading course to demonstrate the XV’s 500 mm wading depth.
Naturally, the Subaru XV completed the course without a hitch, cementing its water wading capabilities.

That said, if you need more space than what the Subaru XV offers, perhaps you should check out its larger sibling, the Subaru Forester. The Forester also offers a 500-mm water wading depth, as demonstrated in this video.
