Subaru Levorg updated in Japan, not yet for Australia

The Subaru Levorg has been upgraded in Japan.

Subaru has updated its mid-size Levorg wagon in Japan with new features, new tech, slightly revised styling and newly available models. 

To be released in Japan in June 2019, the updated Levorg now includes the STI Sport Black Selection and Advantage Line specs, with the former based on the 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine, and the latter on the smaller 1.6-litre turbo. 

The updates to the Levorg won’t land immediately in Australia however, with Subaru Australia spokesperson Dave Rowley telling CarsGuide that there are “no changes planned imminently for our Levorg line-up.”
