Higher grades get 360° cameras.

Spending extra on higher trim levels will net buyers EyeSight Plus or EyeSight X, both of which come with extra tech such as a 360° camera and advanced cruise control that supports hands-off driver assistance at low speeds.

Chassis and powertrain

The main talking point however is the chassis and drivetrain. Built on the new Subaru Global Platform (which will also base the next-gen Toyota 86/Subaru BRZ) the Levorg gets a turbocharged 1.8-litre flat-four making 177 PS and 300 Nm, paired to a CVT.

Subaru claims this engine is plenty economical and can return fuel efficiency figures of 6-litres/100 km. Other than that, the top-spec STi variants will get electronically-controlled adjustable dampers.
