Subaru has introduced its new sedan the subaru Liberty in the Australian market with an updated model bringing style tweaks, powertrain improvements, new features and sharpened pricing.
The updated sedan and wagon models get a new front grille and foglight surrounds, along with new wheel designs.
Fuel consumption in the Liberty 2.5i and 2.5i Premium models has fallen from 8.3 to 7.9 l/100km, a 4.8 percent improvement brought by the new FB boxer engine paired with Subaru’s Lineartronic CVT automatic transmission.
The changes also mean that power for the 2.5i and 2.5i Premium models has increased from 123 to 127kW, and torque is up from 229 to 235Nm.
Subaru says it has also improved torque distribution for the Liberty’s all-wheel-drive system, with the enhancements benefiting from testing on Australian roads. Changes to the all-wheel-drive system include revised damper and spring rate settings, while welding and additional support have been added to the cradle frame and sub-frame for improved maneuverability. Noise, Vibration and Harshness is also improved, Subaru says, through the use of a thicker front stabilizer and new bushings.
Feature and styling changes across the line-up include an updated steering wheel design center console and instrument panel, along with a one-touch lane-change indicator stalk, USB audio connectivity.
