The updated Subaru Levorg of the second generation was the first production model of the Japanese brand, which received a new corporate style of Bolder design, featuring sharper and more impressive elements.

The second generation of the station wagon was first presented as a concept in the fall of last year. The company said that the novelty is built on the modular SGP (Subaru Global Platform) platform, on which all the latest models of the brand are created. Now the serial version of the model has a separate page on the Internet, where you can find the only picture of the model – in profile.

The model has become 65 mm longer, 15 mm wider and by the same amount higher. Now the dimensions are 4755x1795x1500 mm. At the same time, the size of the wheelbase has grown from 2650 to 2670 mm. The vehicle’s ground clearance is only 145 mm. Under the hood of the Levorg is an upgraded 1.8-liter boxer engine with a turbine. Its power is 177 hp and the torque is 300 Nm. The transmission is a Lineartronic wedge-chain variator with manual mode and a standard all-wheel drive with a rear axle clutch.

For the “second” Levorg, a complex of new generation EyeSight security systems is also announced: the stereo camera now has a wider viewing angle, there are four radars (installed on the bumpers). Plus, the station wagon got a modernized adaptive cruise control – using satellite data, the system recognizes the road and brakes the car where necessary. For a surcharge, you can order the extended complex EyeSight X, which will include adaptive cruise control linked to GPS satellite navigation, so that the car can determine the terrain in advance.

The cost of the car in Japan starts at 3.1 million yen. The top version of the STI Sport EX with the same engine will cost 4.09 million yen.
