Subaru Levorg UK pricing confirmed

Buying a Subaru Levorg should be a fairly straightforward process. That's because the new estate, which is essentially a replacement for the Legacy Tourer, is being offered in a single version.

Called GT, its specification is fairly generous. The interior features an infotainment system with satellite navigation, a 7” touchscreen, heated front seats, reclining rear seats and leather upholstery.

On the outside, 18” alloy wheels, rear privacy glass, a roof spoiler and automatically-activated LED headlights with high beam assist all come as standard.

Safety is likely to be a prime consideration for many of the Levorg's target customers. To satisfy them, the equipment list also includes a rear parking camera, blind spot detection, lane change assist and rear cross traffic alert.

Just one powertrain option likewise keeps things simple. This combines a 167 bhp (125 kW / 170 PS) 1.6 litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, a Lineartronic continuously-variable transmission and all-wheel drive.

The lack of a diesel alternative might harm sales in this segment, but Subaru says the Levorg can achieve 'nearly' 40 mpg (roughly 7.1 l/100km) on the combined cycle while emitting 164 g/km of carbon dioxide.

Performance is respectable enough too. With 250 Nm (184 lb/ft) of peak torque, the 0-62 mph (100 km/h) sprint is completed in 8.9 seconds. To enhance the handling, active torque vectoring is fitted and there's a choice of two driving modes.

In the UK, the Levorg GT has an on-the-road starting price of £27,495.
