New Subaru Levorg: 1.8-Liter Turbo Engine and Interior Innovations

The manufacturer has introduced the second generation of the model, which has something to surprise with.

Subaru has introduced the second-generation Levorg. The model experiences a generation change 6 years after entering the market in 2014. The station wagon, which is positioned by the manufacturer as a completely new model, has become the «first» in a number of positions. This is the brand’s first production model designed in accordance with the new Bolder philosophy. The new corporate style is characterized by a combination of sharp lines and massive elements. Also, the station wagon features a number of new technologies that are not used in any other Subaru model. More on this later.

In the meantime, it is worth noting that the new Levorg is transferred to the modular SGP (Subaru Global Platform). As a result, the station wagon is 65 mm longer, 15 mm wider and higher. Now, the dimensions of the model are as following: 4,755 / 1,795 / 1,500 mm. Compared to its predecessor, the wheelbase increased by 20 mm to 2,670 mm. The ground clearance is 145 mm. The architecture of the running gear is preserved. A list of new innovations also includes a new 1.8-liter opposed turbo engine with a power output of 177 hp and 300 Nm. The unit comes with a Lineartronic CVT and manual mode. There is an all-wheel drive system.

As for the interior, it has become more spacious in the new generation. Among the innovations are a heated second-seat row and an 11.6-inch Starlink infotainment system. You can control music, air conditioning, and other systems from the screen. However, the manufacturer also keeps physical buttons located on the sides of the screen. The station wagon comes standard with a 12.3-inch digital cockpit with several modes for displaying information for the first time.

The tailgate is now powered and activated by touching the logo. The volume of the luggage compartment is 492 liters. If this is not enough, the manufacturer also provides an additional compartment under the floor with a capacity of 69 liters.

Another new feature that cannot be ignored is the new-generation EyeSight system. It is responsible for automatic braking and lane keeping. It is already available in the standard equipment. An extended EyeSight X set is offered for an additional fee. It includes an advanced adaptive cruise control, in which the electronics «know» the terrain in advance and the presence or absence of turns. The system itself is something similar to autopilot, which allows the driver to periodically remove their hands from the steering wheel.
