The Subaru Levorg was released in 2014 worldwide. The first generation was introduced in Japan. In February 2015, the Subaru Corporation started selling this innovative vehicle in Europe with an initial introduction at the Geneva Motor Show. During the same year, this sports wagon hit our local shores.
The second-generation prototype was unveiled at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show. The revamped Subaru Levorg now bears the Subaru Global Platform.
The Levorg is a rally-inspired car that's also great for families
The new Subaru Levorg measures 4,690mm long, 1,780mm wide, and 1,490mm tall. At the front, it bears the signature wide grille that follows the Japanese company’s innovative branding. It is matched with a set of fierce-looking LED headlamps with an automatic leveler. The big hood scoop distinguishes itself from other wagons and serves as a preview of its unmatched performance.
Its body is filled with design lines meant to help the vehicle’s aerodynamic capability. The tilt-adjustable sunroof provides a more relaxed vibe, while the shark fin antenna and roof spoiler add a modern edge. At the back, exquisite details can be found such as dual exhausts, a rear spoiler, and rear fog lights. Its powerful stance brought about by a set of 18-inch wheels screams intimidation and power.
The vibe inside the Subaru Levorg is relaxed thanks to its subtle gray interior with blue trimmings. Drivers will be pleased with the innovations inside such as the 10-way power-adjustable seat, leather sports telescopic steering wheel, gear shift knob, multi-function display equipped with a boost pressure meter, and one-touch turn signal.
The Levorg’s cabin can comfortably accommodate five fully grown adults. It features reclining seats at the back using a one-touch switch. It comes with a center armrest with two cup holders.
Charging mobile devices is possible thanks to the 12-volt power socket at the center console box and center panel. Cargo loading is not a problem as this automobile has a carrying capacity of 522 liters which can be expanded up to 1,400 liters when the rear seats are folded.
Technology & Safety Features
A seven-inch display audio system affixed with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay provides entertainment while cruising inside this sports wagon. It can be controlled using either the buttons built on the steering wheel or by a voice recognition system.
In terms of safety, the Levorg has SRS airbags on the front and sides. Curtain and knee airbags are also installed. The seat belts are height adjustable on the front, while the rear has three points for three seating positions. Other features include brake override and assist system, engine immobilizer, rear vehicle detection, and the Eyesight Driver Assist Technology.
Platform & Chassis
The new Subaru Levorg shares the same platform with the Subaru Impreza. It is built using a higher strength but lightweight steel aiding both the vehicle’s safety and road performance.
It is built using an independent Macpherson Strut suspension at the front, and a Double Wishbone Suspension at the rear. Vented discs support stopping at the front and back.
Engine & Drivetrain
The Levorg runs using a 2.0 liter, Horizontally Opposed Direct Injection Turbo Boxer engine that produces 265 hp with a torque of 350 Nm.
