Background

The Levorg is Subaru’s replacement for the long serving Legacy and straddles the border between estate and crossover. It adds an extra helping of versatility and distances itself from Subaru’s rallying heritage by making for a leftfield addition to the British Touring Car Championship.

60sec road test

Subaru is modest in only targeting 500 sales a year in the UK with its new Levorg and it’s a fair admission. It’s a refreshingly different addition to the market and has matured suitably along with the company’s rally fans. There is nothing remarkable in the Levorg’s drivetrain and its extra refinement has dialled out much of the Subaru character, but similarly there is nothing offensive in its turbocharged 1.6-litre motor mated to a CVT. Overall it doesn’t try to mix itself with the established cars in this segment and for that it is rather endearing.
