Subaru confirms Levorg
Subaru has confirmed the new Levorg sport tourer will go on sale in the UK in September. The new model, which made its European debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March, will be called Levorg in the UK, having been launched to widespread acclaim in its Japanese home market last year.
Breakover Angle: better than 12.5 degrees helps prevent grounding on ramps. Wheelbase: 2650mm; ground clearance: 135mm; breakover angle: 11.64 degrees.
The new Levorg is being seen as the spiritual successor to the fourth generation Legacy Tourer (2003 - 2008) which became a firm favourite among Subaru owners the world over. The packaging of the new Levorg means that while it has similar exterior dimensions to the Legacy, it will have much more interior space.
Subaru’s trade-mark Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive will of course feature, along with an all new 170 PS 1.6 litre DIT Boxer petrol engine. The new engine will be combined with the latest version of Subaru’s highly advanced 6-speed Lineartronic transmission.
The Subaru Levorg will also feature some of the latest passive and active safety technology, including blind spot detection and rear vehicle alert. Engineers are promising that the Levorg GT will be one of the most refined Subaru’s yet, while the cabin will benefit from the brand’s latest factory-fit infotainment system, bespoke sports seats and premium materials.
The first customer cars are expected to arrive in the UK in September. Further details on the Levorg, including pricing and full specifications will be announced closer to launch.
Subaru Levorg pricing announced
The all-new Subaru Levorg is priced at £27,495 on-the-road. When it goes on sale in the UK, the Levorg will be available with one engine: a newly-developed 1.6-litre DIT (Direct Injection Turbo) Boxer petrol engine.
The new 1.6-litre DIT power unit offers the same performance as Subaru’s existing 2.5-litre naturally-aspirated Boxer engine. Engineered specifically for its application in the Levorg, the all-new four-cylinder engine produces 170PS and 250Nm torque.
The Levorg accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 8.9 seconds, while returning nearly 40mpg on a combined cycle. Emissions are rated at 164g/km.
Updated Subaru Levorg revealed
The revised Levorg features a new 2.0-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine as well as revised looks and a new safety technology.
Although performance figures are yet to be confirmed, the 2.0-litre engine comes with Subaru's CVT gearbox and symmetrical all-wheel drive. The manufacturer claims it offers better ride quality and improved handling thanks to a revised suspension set-up. Priced at £30,995.
