What’s in a name? Every now and again car manufacturers come out with crazy names for their cars. This one from Subaru is a corker. Levorg. According to Wikipedia, Levorg is a combination of three words – Legacy, Revolution, and Touring. It’s a mid-sized car based on the Impreza platform and available in three variants. Starting at $42990 for the ‘base’ GT model and up to the GT-S Spec B STI for nearly $10,000 more. (excluding on-road costs)
The article below from industry colleagues ‘Performance Drive’ outlines the spec.
Subaru Australia has introduced the highly anticipated Levorg for the Australian market. It comes as the WRX wagon, also providing for those wanting a Liberty wagon.
The Levorg is based on the current WRX, featuring a similar body, particularly the front end, as well as a 2.0-litre turbo boxer engine producing 197kW and 350Nm. Unfortunately, all variants come with a CVT automatic transmission. Subaru is offering three main variant grades for the new model, spanning from the 2.0 GT, to the 2.0GT-S, and the range-topping 2.0GT-S Spec B. All come with the same powertrain package. Standard features for the base 2.0GT include multiple LCD displays on the dash, two USB ports, a boost gauge, while the GT-S gets blue stitching. Going for the sporty Spec B brings a number of STI enhancements, including a full bodykit, 18-inch alloy wheels, front strut brace, and a rear spoiler. There’s also an STI gear lever and red start button inside.
Subaru is calling the Levorg a spiritual successor to the old Liberty GT wagon. Speaking about the car, Nick Senior, Subaru Australia MD, said:
The fourth generation was the most successful and endearing Liberty wagon and we’ve had many customers asking for a worthy replacement since we stopped producing it. The new Levorg is that replacement – it’s as endearing as a fourth gen, but modernised and built to take advantage of new production technology that gives heaps of internal space.
All variants come with an ANCAP five-star safety rating. It’s on sale now, with prices starting from the following (excluding on-road costs):
2017 Subaru Levorg GT – $42,990
2017 Subaru Levorg GT-S – $48,890
2017 Subaru Levorg GT-S Spec B STI – $52,890
Every article I write is targeted at providing as much information for car owners and prospective car buyers.
Above anything else, Car Business is a company that provides automotive advice for car owners who don’t have access to experts. Am I an expert? I’ve been in the car business for over 38 years, and while there are areas where I’ll reach out to friends and acquaintances for advice, I’ve got a pretty good grasp of most aspects of the business. I’ve been called a lot of things in my time – Car Doctor, Car Professor or The Car Guru, but whenever someone wants some sensible advice, they call me.
I don’t charge for advice, whether it’s on the phone, via email or face to face. I’m happy to provide my expertise whenever I can. So if you want to chat to The Car Guru, get in touch.
I have access to good quality cars – you can see them on Cars Guide. Just click here [Cars Guide] to view our current stock of vehicles.

www.genuinespares.com.au. This is an online spare parts store for Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Volkswagen and Isuzu Ute. I’ve got thousands of mechanical and panel parts plus Mopar (Jeep, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Alfa) T-Shirts, tyres, and alloy wheels as well. If you’re looking for a hard to get replacement part for any of these brands, or you just want to get a better price than retail on any car brand, let me know. And you won’t pay inflated replacement parts prices either. I’ve priced my stock at a discounted value to compete with the USA and Europe spare parts prices but with local delivery charges
We’re local agents for Williams Paint and Interior Protection as well as AutoGard and CleanGard car products and SunX window tinting. The Same story applies.

Don’t get ripped off by the franchise car dealers – check us out for a local competitive price on car protection products, window tinting, and engine products.
I’m pleased to advise that in 2015 I was awarded the franchise for 1800Approved Finance. As a local finance company, we’re able to provide a better level of service than the local car dealers as well as pretty competitive rates. SO before you sign on the dotted line, let us compare rates on finance and insurance for you – no obligation. If you’re looking for finance for a new or used car, or any other worthwhile purpose, our company can assist – even if you’ve had some troubling financial issues.
