All-new Subaru Liberty makes debut

Seventh-gen Subaru Liberty unveiled in Chicago with new platform, tech and advanced infotainment. Featuring a wider stance and a steeply raked rising belt line, compared to the last car the seventh-generation Subaru Liberty is pure evolution, rather than revolution. At Chicago, Subaru launched the Liberty with two engines — a punchy 194kW turbocharged direct-injection 2.4-litre flat-four-cylinder that powers the XT and a less powerful 136kW 2.5-litre that drives the base model.

Subaru Forester 2019 Review

Over the past 20 years, the Subaru Forester SUV has developed an aura of dependability and safety. Its unique selling point was originally the extra safety of all-wheel drive.

It now appears cheaper to run and better value. What’s new with 2019 Subaru Forester? Broadly speaking the ...

60 Years Of Subaru

Subaru Liberty line-up spoils you for choice

Reliable, roomy and safe, the varied model line-up spoils you for choice. There are a wagon or sedan, rapid GT and 3.6R models and the Exiga wagon with six or seven seats. Typical of Subaru, these are all-wheel drive only, a huge point of difference in the sedan or wagon playground. All engines are horizontally opposed in “boxer” configuration, giving a characteristic thrum. Styling is smart, mirrored by the cabins that are well screwed together. The space inside is excellent, ...
