Singapore, 14 January 2016 – Motor Image, the exclusive distributor of Subaru vehicles in the Southeast Asian region, today launched a brand new model, the Subaru Levorg at the 2016 Singapore Motorshow. The name 'Levorg' derives from a combination of the words 'Legacy', 'Revolution' and 'Touring', offering customers a vehicle that combines the performance and practicality of a tourer, with the stylish design and feel of a sports car.
"When selecting a new vehicle, discerning Singaporean customers want a car that is aesthetically pleasing, practical and offers substantial performance. The all-new Subaru Levorg ticks every box by blending the performance of a sports car with the practicality of a wagon coupled with a sleek, low profile design," said Mr Glenn Tan, Executive Director, Tan Chong International Ltd.
The all-new Subaru Levorg features:
The Subaru Levorg will come in one option featuring 4-Cylinder DIT, Boxer Engine, Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD):
Subaru prides itself on its unique approach in combining sports and touring performances into one vehicle. The brand new 'Innovative Tourer' Levorg is the fruit of Subaru's ongoing commitment to offer customers with a luxurious and spacious car that is capable of spirited long-distance driving.
Inspired by the EJ25 (2.5L NA) found in the Legacy 2.5i, Subaru's engineers aimed to develop a better engine with enhanced fuel economy and performance. The newly developed 1.6-litre Horizontally-Opposed DIT boxer engine offers both brisk driving pleasure and superb fuel performance of 7.4-litre/100km, combined. Fuel efficiency is enhanced by Subaru's first adoption of DIT combined with a low displacement engine. Turbo lag is also almost non-existent with peak torque of 250Nm being delivered at 1,800rpm all the way to 4,800rpm.
The Levorg's sleek styling befits a sports tourer but cargo space remains functional and roomy, designed with the expertise gained from years of developing wagons. While keeping the exterior size nimble, the Levorg has achieved the largest cargo space of 522-litre with Subaru's innovative engineering. The front bumper features Subaru's unique hexagon grille and hawk eye headlights. Other attractions include its quality interior with finesse obvious in even the smallest parts, maximized utility, first-class driving comfort, and an exhilarating steering experience.
The Levorg 1.6GT-S is equipped with High Beam Assist which toggles between the high and low beam automatically according to the road conditions (above 55km/h), improving dusk visibility.
Both the active and passive safety features in the Levorg have also been enhanced. Subaru has been refining and upgrading the Symmetrical AWD for years. With Symmetrical AWD, combined with an advanced Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC) system and Active Torque Vectoring (ATV), an exceptional all-round safety was achieved providing drivers with security and confidence. As a result, the Levorg's handling is agile and nimble regardless of the road condition.
Additionally, the Levorg is installed with the Emergency Stop Signal which quickly flashes the hazard warning lights when the vehicle makes an abrupt deceleration from high speed. It also warns the cars behind it of rapid approach and collision risk. To protect pedestrians, the front hood and bulkhead are built in an impact-absorbing structure and impact absorbents are placed in the engine compartment side.
The all-new Subaru Levorg is available for booking at the following Subaru Showrooms across Singapore – 25 Leng Kee Road and 19 Lorong 8 Toa Payoh from January 2016 onwards.
