The Subaru Levorg

The all-new Subaru Levorg will have a list price in Ireland of €44,995.

The new Levorg is dubbed a “sport tourer” and is the natural successor to the Subaru Legacy Tourer.

The car will be available in a single GT trim with a high level of specification and Subaru’s iconic All-Wheel Drive (AWD) as standard. There is just one engine available for new Levorg, a new 1.6-litre Boxer turbo petrol engine producing 170PS and 250Nm torque. Using a CVT automatic gearbox, the Levorg will hit 100kmh from a standstill in 8.9 seconds, while returning fuel consumption of 7.1 litres/100km (almost 40mpg). Emissions of 164g CO2 put the Levorg in tax band D with annual motor tax of €570.

The Levorg is smaller on the outside when compared to the last Legacy Tourer, however Subaru say it’s even more spacious and practical. The boot has a capacity of 522 litres, expanding to 1,446 litres with the second row of seats folded down.

Interior of new Subaru Levorg

Standard equipment includes leather-trimmed sports seats with blue stitching, 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment, connectivity and navigation system, LED headlamps, auto lights and wipers, front and rear fog lamps, metallic paint, 18-inch dark grey alloy wheels, privacy glass and roof spoiler, keyless access and push-button start, bespoke leather heated sports seats in the front, 60/40 split-folding and reclining rear seats, two 12-volt power outlets, four USB ports (two in the front, two in the rear), dual-zone air-conditioning and rear parking camera.

Levorg is equipped as standard with safety technology including Blind Spot Detection (alerts drivers to cars sitting in their blind spot), Lane Change Assist (warns drivers of fast-approaching vehicles behind when the driver indicates to change lane), and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (detects vehicles passing behind when reversing out of a parking space). The car also features SI Drive (Subaru Intelligent Drive) which allows the driver, via a button on the steering wheel, to choose either Intelligent mode or Sport mode.

For better handling, the Levorg has Active Torque Vectoring (ATV), which effectively brakes the inside wheels under cornering and apportions greater torque to the outside of the car, reducing understeer and oversteer to allow a more predictable and controlled course through corners.

The all-new Subaru Levorg goes on sale in Ireland this month.
