With the launch of the new Subaru Levorg, it would be very easy for the Liberty to be overshadowed. Fortunately, the Liberty has a fantastic pedigree and track record for offering sedan buyers value for money and performance, which ensures that it retains its appeal. The 2.5i Premium sits in the mid range position and here are four things you can expect.
While the base model new Subaru Liberty may appeal to bargain hunters looking to spend less than $30k, the mid range 2.5i Premium still offers attractive pricing. It costs approximately $7,000 less than the 3.6R flagship variant, but still offers an excellent range of features as standard. Features include push button start and keyless entry, LED self levelling automatic headlights, dual zone climate control, heated power mirrors, rain sensing wipers, electric sunroof, sat nav, 18 inch alloys and auto dimming rearview mirror.
The cabin features eight way power adjusted heated seats, which also includes a driver’s memory function, sports pedals, rear privacy glass, stainless steel kick plates, paddle shifters on the leather wrapped steering wheel. At the heart of the Liberty cabin is the infotainment system. This includes a 7.0 inch touchscreen and six speaker audio system with voice recognition and Bluetooth pairing.
One of the main attractions of the new Subaru Liberty for sale is that it offers access to the EyeSight driver assistance system. EyeSight bundles together a range of safety features including autonomous braking, lane departure warning, and adaptive cruise control. There is also a lead vehicle start alert, which provides you with an audible alert when the vehicle in front of you has moved, but you haven’t. EyeSight is included as standard throughout the Liberty range, and together with the blind spot monitoring, rear view camera, rear cross traffic alert, seven airbags and ISOFIX anchor points has contributed to the model being awarded the maximum ANCAP safety rating.
The Liberty is equipped with a four cylinder horizontally opposed 2.5 litre Boxer petrol engine. This is teamed with a CVT transmission and delivers 129 kW of power. While this option offers plenty of performance power, it still offers thrifty petrol consumption of 7.3 litres per 100 kilometres for a combined cycle.
