MHH International: First Look At The New Subaru Levorg

Subaru Levorg Review, MHH International
Just as with the outgoing version, the newly revised Subaru Levorg offers big estate car practicality with permanent Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive confidence. Refreshed for 2019 and available from July from around £31,000 (UK), the Levorg comes equipped with a 2.0L naturally aspirated petrol engine, refined exterior styling with a choice of six colours and a selection of interior upgrades plus new safety technology

Overview

 

The old model was great and the Japanese brand have stated that this new version will be yet more comfortable and capable around town and effortless on the motorways and long journeys. The Subaru Levorg’s new petrol engine is combined with Subaru’s Lineartronic CVT transmission (not all regions get a manual gearbox option) and, as mentioned, Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive as standard. This family tourer also benefits, we learn, from fine-tuned suspension settings resulting in responsive handling to deliver sheer driving enjoyment.

The Looks

 

The front has been revamped with a more refined, stylish front bumper, a sharper front grille and refreshed headlight and fog light designs. A newly designed 18” alloy wheel completes the exterior and, in addition to these visual enhancements, the estate car gains improved visibility with LED steering-responsive headlights and LED fog lights.

The Interior

 

Inside, there has been a variety of discreet style upgrades to the instrument panel, door trim and switches. Plus, there have been further improvements to comfort with power adjustable lumbar support introduced on the driver’s seat. Rear seat and boot space usability has been enhanced with a new 40/20/40 split folding rear seat configuration that improves convenience and is particularly suited to loading long items while still accommodating two passengers seated in the rear.

 

The Subaru Levorg features all of the infotainment and audio offerings you would expect in a family tourer. The intuitive 7" multifunction colour touchscreen is easy to use and includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, DAB radio, Bluetooth connectivity and satellite navigation.

Subaru has been voted ‘Best Manufacturer for Safety Features’ in the 2019 Driver Power Survey and Levorg demonstrates the brand’s commitment to build the safest cars on the road. The brand’s unique ‘EyeSight’ driver assistance includes adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking and lane departure warning. Blind spot monitoring and a reversing camera are also included and these are now complemented by a front view camera and smart rear-view mirror to improve visibility in areas that would ordinarily be obstructed from view.

 

We can confirm, having once experienced a potential accident scenario in the previous model, that this safety system really does work. The technology performs as a second set of eyes on the road ahead. EyeSight is able to warn the driver when there’s a potentially dangerous situation ahead, and can even apply the brakes if the driver does not react quickly enough. Powered by dual colour cameras placed strategically at the top of the car’s windscreen, this system helps add some peace of mind behind the wheel. Subaru also have a reputation for strength and reliability and this is borne out by the number of aged Subaru models still on the road. It really is a very good car.
