The Subaru Levorg will be up for order next month in United Kingdom from £27,495. It will be offered only in a GT trim with an all-wheel drive system, a continuously variable transmission and a newly developed 1.6-liter DIT gasoline engine generating 170 PS (125 kW) and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) of torque. This hardware setup will allow Subaru’s sport tourer to complete the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) task in 8.9 seconds and it will be able to return almost 40 mpg UK in the combined cycle, with CO2 emissions standing at 164 g/km.
With the rear seats in position, the vehicle is going to provide a trunk capacity of 522 liters and once you fold them down it will grow to 1,446 liters. Standard equipment is quite generous as it includes automatic LED headlights, privacy glass, rain-sensing wipers, 18-inch wheels, rearview camera and keyless access with push button start.
The Subaru Levorg (UK-spec) also comes with a seven-inch touchscreen display, dual zone automatic conditioning, four USB ports, two 12-volt power outlets, along with front, side, curtain and driver knee airbags while up front there are whiplash-reducing seats. The car also comes with an active torque vectoring system, high-beam assist and a roof-mounted spoiler.
Subaru has disclosed plans to start selling the Levorg GT in United Kingdom from September. The model was launched in Japan last year and is now heading towards UK dealers exclusively with a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder DIT Boxer gasoline engine which produces 170 PS (125 kW) and a peak torque of 250 Nm (184 lb-ft). All that power is transferred to Subaru’s symmetrical all-wheel drive system via a revised variant of the Lineatronic CVT gearbox which has a manual model that mimics a six-speed manual transmission.
There’s no word yet about the availability of the larger 2.0-liter engine that in the JDM-spec Levorg churns a generous 300 PS (221 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) through a Sport Lineatronic gearbox. Subaru says the UK-spec Levorg GT will be one of the company’s most refined models ever and will feature premium materials, sports seats, newest passive and active safety tech, along with Subaru’s latest developments in infotainment systems.
It’s not known at this point whether Subaru will decide to sell the Levorg GT in other European countries, following the model’s debut in UK this fall at a still undisclosed price tag. Full details including pricing will be announced closer to the model’s market launch.
