The new Subaru Levorg launched in Japan in June of last year and is now making its way to Europe. The new European spec model will be exhibited for the first time at the Geneva International Motor Show before its European launch later this year.
The new sports tourer is launching in the UK and will be in dealer showrooms this fall. The sports wagon has been a big hit in its home country and should be a favorite with UK buyers who like their sports wagons. Performance fans in the U.S. can only look and not touch.
