We’ve been waiting for the big reveal of the next-generation Levorg for quite some time now, and we’re sure a lot of you share our sentiments, too. After all, Subaru already teased us with the all-new wagon on two separate occasions over the last year, specifically with the Levorg Prototype during the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show and the Levorg Prototype STI Sport at the 2020 Tokyo Auto Salon.
Thankfully, Subaru’s now done with prototypes—it finally launched the all-new Levorg in Japan earlier today. Let’s dive right into the details.
The new-look wagon now features a much sportier design, with more aggressive-looking headlamps and sleeker lines highlighting the front fascia. The same can be said about the Levorg’s rear, with redesigned taillights that look similar to that of new Forester. Other exterior elements such as the bumpers and the wheels add to the stylish appeal.
Inside, the Levorg boasts of swaths of leather along with loads of tech. The cabin features a black theme accentuated with gray and silver trims as well as blue contrast stitching on the seat. There’s also a massive 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster for the driver and dazzling 11.6-inch infotainment system up front.
Under the hood, the all-new Levorg impresses further. It now packs a 1.8-liter horizontally-opposed direct-injection turbo engine that generates a whopping 300Nm of torque and is mated to a Lineartronic CVT. It’s also now built on the Subaru Global Platform with a full inner-frame construction. And, of course, the next-generation Levorg also gets Subaru EyeSight safety features to boot.
Subaru has also released more details and images of the Levorg STI Sport. The performance wagon comes with an even more stylish exterior and interior, as well as some added driver-oriented tech including the five different drive modes for optimum on-road performance. No word, however, if the Levorg STI Sport is available with a WRX STI turbocharged engine. We sure hope so.
The carmaker says that pre-orders for the new Levorg are now available in Japan. Would you like to see Motor Image Pilipinas bring this vehicle over to our market, too?
