1.6-litre engine is claimed to output 168bhp and 175lb ft, while its
claimed average economy is 49mpg. Subaru states that, with this engine, a
full tank of fuel will allow owners to cover over 620 miles at an
average speed of 62mph.
The 2.0-litre is notably more powerful,
producing 296bhp and 295lb ft, but predictably it's less economical,
with a claimed average of 37mpg.
Modern equipment in the Levorg
includes 'Eyesight', a lane keeping assistance system that can control
the steering, a feature that prevents excessive unintended acceleration
in reverse, hazard avoidance and adaptive cruise control.
A production version of the Levorg is already in the works, says the firm, and will be launched in Japan in Spring 2014.
