New Subaru Levorg wagon debuts with a 177 hp boxer engine


Subaru has revealed the production version of the second generation Levorg wagon, which was unveiled as a prototype at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show. In terms of the styling, the production wagon doesn’t look any different from the last year’s prototype.

For the Japanese market, the trims include GT, GT EX, GT-H, GT-H EX, STI Sport and STI Sport EX. The latter two are, of course, sportier variants with some visual differentiation.

Speaking of which, the visual differences are rather subtle. It gets chrome applique for the front grille and bumper; STI badging, unique 18-inch dual-tone aluminum wheels, and tailpipes with STI logo.

In terms of the mechanical differences, the STI models get electronically controlled dampers by ZF.


The cabin looks very contemporary with a 11.6-inch portrait-style central screen (optional), a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster (standard on STI Sport EX), and aluminum pedals. The flat-bottom steering wheel is standard across the range.


Depending on the trim, other features include a 10-way electrically adjustable driver’s seat, 8-way electrically adjustable front passenger seat, heated front seats, and EyeSight X ADAS. Technologies under EyeSight include the usual stuff such as Pre-crash brake (collision damage-reducing brake), Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, Traffic Jam Assist and so on.


The new Levorg boasts a pedestrian airbag too.


Powering the new Levorg is a new 1.8-litre (1,795 cc) 4-cylinder (boxer) turbocharged petrol engine that develops 177 metric hp (130 kW) between 5,200-5,600 rpm and 300 Nm (221 lb-ft) of torque between 1,600-3,600 rpm. Transmission is a Lineartronic CVT that drives all four wheels.

For those interested to know the dimensions, the Levorg measures 4,755 mm in length, 1,795 mm in width and 1,500 mm in height (including shark fin antenna). Wheelbase measures 2,670 mm and the ground clearance is at 145 mm.

Subaru is already accepting orders in Japan.
