The Subaru Liberty offers three driving options, but whether you choose the 2.5i, 2.5X, 3.6X, or the turbocharged 2.5GT Premium, Subaru promises a unique experience in sophistication and performance.
The Subaru Liberty range has been given a 5-star ANCAP safety rating, which, for passengers, is merely the cherry on top of Subaru’s recognised expertise in engineering. The EyeSight system uses stereo cameras that are mounted inside of the windscreen to scan the road ahead. It alerts drivers to potentially dangerous obstacles, as well as those that require immediate evasive action. It also anticipates the probability of a collision by measuring the speed, distance and trajectory of an approaching vehicle and has the ability to avoid collision at speeds under 30 km/h. Modern technology also controls the vehicle’s cabin.
Features that come standard across the range include Bluetooth wireless technology and USB connectivity. Other interior standard features offer a Vehicle Dynamics Control System, a rear view reverse camera, a lone-touch lane change indicator, electro-luminescent gauges, a 3.5-inch colour monitor and, for good measure, a luxurious leather steering wheel. Driving these features is a really impressive engine.
The Liberty 2.5i GT Premium has a turbocharged engine that produces 195kW of power and 350 Nm of torque at 2400 to 5200 rpm. A 6-speed manual transmission comes with this model with the option of a 5-speed automatic. Subaru’s sterling reputation for performance and reliability provides an excess of confidence in this vehicles ability to handle the tough Australian conditions.
