The all-new 2016 Subaru Levorg wagon has been spied in Australia this week, in the lead-up to its local market launch next year. Spied by CarAdvice reader Josh on the New South Wales stretch of the Hume Highway over the weekend, this Levorg is likely a factory-owned Australian-market model in final evaluation. Exact timing for the Levorg’s Australian launch is still to be revealed, although Subaru has confirmed a mid-2016 window. Revealed as a “concept” in late 2013, the Levorg went on sale in its home market of Japan not long after, before going on to a UK launch earlier this year. It was around that time that Subaru Australia revealed it had locked the Levorg in for a local debut, after previously confirming its desire to get the new small wagon to our market. In Australia, the Levorg will enter as something of a ‘replacement’ for the Liberty wagon, which, in recent generations, has become a larger car. More, in its current form, the Liberty wagon can only be had as the high-riding Outback. “It will appeal to those fourth-generation Liberty GT buyers who have been starved of a logical successor but we believe it will also attract a much wider audience because of its performance, its versatility, its refinement and its high level of standard equipment,” Subaru Australia managing director Nick Senior said in July. CarAdvice drove the Levorg in October, catch our review here.
