Subaru has confirmed the pricing and release date of its upcoming Levorg Sport Tourer. Releasing at the end of next month, the Levorg Sport Tourer is priced at £27,495 (on-the-road).
First launched in its home turf Japan, the car garnered very positive reviews and post its European debut at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, the car pegged as a spiritual successor of Subaru Legacy Tourer will see a UK launch by end of the next month.
The car is launching as a single trim level and Sabaru has promised generous amounts of features as standard including auto on-off LED headlamps; rain-sensing wipers; front and rear fog lamps; 18-inch dark grey alloy wheels; privacy glass and a subtle roof spoiler; keyless access and push-button start; bespoke leather heated sports seats in the front; two 12-volt power outlets, four USB ports (two in the front, two in the rear); 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment and navigation system with Subaru STARLINK connectivity; dual-zone air-conditioning; and rear parking camera among a few other things.
Subaru Levorg Sport Tourer will be available with one engine option when it goes on sale in the UK – a newly-developed 1.6-litre DIT (Direct Injection Turbo) Boxer petrol engine. This, the company says, when paired with its super-smooth Lineartronic (CVT) transmission, buyers will be treated with a supremely refined powertrain.
The all-new four-cylinder engine produces 170 PS and 250 Nm torque and offers smooth, seamless power delivery and greater efficiency than existing Subaru engines. The Levorg accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 8.9 seconds, while returning nearly 40mpg on a combined cycle. Emissions are rated at 164 g/km. With Subaru’s famous Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system, Vehicle Dynamics Control and torque vectoring, the Levorg’s drivetrain provides unrivalled stability in all conditions.
Subaru says that its new Levorg continues to uphold company’s reputation as a manufacturer of some of the safest cars on the road and packs a strong, light bodyshell and a wide range of passive and active safety technologies including the new ‘Subaru Rear Vehicle Detection’ system (SRVD); Blind Spot Detection; Lane Change Assist; and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
Levorg also features SI Drive (Subaru Intelligent Drive) which allows the driver, via a switch on the steering wheel to chose between two modes according to their mood or the driving environment – Intelligent mode and Sport mode.
