Subaru Boosts Levorg Line-Up

Tue, 01/08/2017
Subaru is boosting its Model Year 2018 All-Wheel Drive Levorg line-up with the addition of turbocharged 1.6-litre variants to the wagon range, plus an STI Sport model at the head of the pack.
 
Significant changes include:
  • Suspension enhancements to Bilstein-equipped mid- and range-topping models
  • A new range-topping Levorg 2.0 STI Sport, with a suite of factory-fitted Subaru Tecnica International accessories and styling additions – including maroon leather-trim seats and the option of the signature WR Blue colour
  • Australian debut of the turbocharged 1.6 litre engine in entry and mid-level Levorg – offering greater customer choice
  • A totally revised Levorg line-up – starting with 1.6GT
  • Revised front bumper and grille, with the 2.0 STI Sport featuring a frontal treatment unique to the variant
  • Smart Rear View Mirror – new feature in Australia
  • Auto Vehicle Hold (AVH) - another debut feature for Subaru - alleviates driver fatigue by holding the vehicle in position when stopped
  • Front View Monitor - helps prevent collisions at intersections, or when parking close to walls or other objects
  • Steering Responsive Headlights – dusk sensing
  • Rain sensing front windscreen wipers
  • Larger 5.9-inch LCD Multi-Function Display (increased from 4.3-inch)
  • Newly developed brake pads in 2.0-litre variants - efficiency increased approximately 20%
  • Introduction of 40/20/40 split folding rear seats
  • New design 18-inch alloy wheels on mid- and range-topping variants

The reinvigorated Levorg range offers greater customer choice in both specification and pricing.

Subtle cosmetic changes to Levorg’s front add to its stylish road presence, aided by newly-designed LED headlights and higher quality LED fog lights.
 
Subaru Australia Managing Director, Colin Christie, said: “Levorg has opened up a whole new performance niche for Subaru since we launched just over a year ago.
 
“We can now see even greater opportunity with the addition of two 1.6-litre turbo variants that will make this fun, flexible wagon available to an even greater cross-section of customers.
 
“Equally, by adding the prestige of the STI badge to the range-topping 2.0 STI Sport, we’re catering to customer demand for something even more exclusive at the top of the range - so the freshened MY18 line-up represents a significant opportunity for us.”
 
As with the entire Subaru new car range, every Levorg has an independent five-star rating for occupant safety from the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP).
