Trust me, this is the updated 2018 Subaru Liberty. I know, it looks really similar, doesn't it?

But this is the facelifted version that has just launched in Australia with a range of changes which, despite appearances, are more substantial than you might think.

There are still three variants available, and there are still four-cylinder and six-cylinder models to choose from.

How about I stop blabbering and give you the detailed rundown on what makes the 2018 Subaru Liberty better than its predecessor... and in some ways, not quite as good.
