“The spiritual successor to the much-missed Subaru Liberty GT wagon” is how Subaru is describing its all-new Levorg wagon, which landed in Australian showrooms today. 

Aimed at active families who are turning away from the cumbersome SUV, the Levorg is powered by the same turbocharged 2.0L engine as the Subaru WRX but boasts up to 522L of cargo capacity, and joins the stable as the only full-sized wagon currently in the line-up.

Available only with an automatic CVT transmission, the all-wheel drive wagon is being offered in two specifications. There’s the 2.0GT base model which starts at $42,990 (plus on road costs) or the 2.0GT-S which, for a $5900 premium at $48,890, adds different coloured wheels, electric seats, blue-stitched trim, a different suspension tune, a bigger touchscreen, rain-sensing wipers, automatic headlights and a few extra electronic aids.

And for another $4000, the S model will also be made available in Spec B, which is a swag of extra parts from Subaru’s motorsport division that includes spoilers, 18-inch black alloy wheels, an STI front tower bar, a red start button and a shift knob.

Both models feature the firm’s latest EyeSight technology which monitors the road and talks to the car’s extensive and sophisticated electronic driver-assist safety features. There’s welcome lighting which will illuminate as you approach the vehicle, heated seats in the front, a couple of USB ports in the back and even a notification system so you won’t forget your wedding anniversary or the car’s servicing schedule.

The Levorg has a five-star ANCAP safety rating and is available in a choice of seven different colours.
