The entry point to the Subaru Liberty 2018 model range is the 2.5i. It starts at an identical price to its predecessor, at $30,240 plus on-road costs.

The entry point to the Subaru Liberty 2018 model range is the 2.5i. It starts at an identical price to its predecessor, at $30,240 plus on-road costs.

The 2.5i has a 6.5-inch touchscreen without satellite navigation, but it has Bluetooth phone and audio streaming, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto (so you can use your phone as your navigation system), CD player, a sound system with six speakers, dual front USB ports and a pair of rear USBs for backseat passengers - ultra handy for keeping devices charged up on long roadtrips.

Other specification highlights include dual-zone climate control, a leather steering wheel with paddle-shifters, auto headlights and auto wipers, front fog-lights, seven airbags (dual front, front side, curtain and driver’s knee) and rear tinted windows. It rolls on 18-inch wheels.

You need to spend up on the 2.5i Premium for items like leather, a bigger media screen with sat nav, and auto high-beam headlights. But you still get the 'EyeSight' forward camera system with auto emergency braking (AEB), lane-keeping assist and adaptive cruise control.

Under the bonnet is a tweaked version of the 2.5-litre four-cylinder boxer engine with 129kW of power and 235Nm of torque. It can only be had with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) auto, which has a seven-speed manual mode, and it is all-wheel drive. Those engine specs are unchanged, but the drivetrain has been tweaked for better response. Liberty 2.5i models have two drive modes - 'Sport' and 'Intelligent'.
