Subaru’s enhanced 2013 Liberty lineup boasts extra technology and enticing price cuts. Leading the way is the entry-level Subaru Liberty 2.5ui sedan which has been reduced by $2000 to $32,990.
Subaru Liberty 2.5i Premium is cut by $1500 to $39,490 (sedan) and $41,490 (wagon) despite the inclusion of the Subaru EyeSight safety system.
Naturally-aspirated 2.5-litre models gain extra power and torque and fuel consumption cuts of up to 4.8 per-cent thanks to the new generation ‘FB’ boxer engine and latest CVT automatic transmission. That means 127kW (3.3 per-cent better) and 235Nm (2.6 per-cent better).
Steering system and suspension changes (bushings, anti-roll bar springs and dampers) have been revised for improved stability and reduced NVH.
Styling changes include a new grille and fog light surrounds and new-design alloy wheels. Inside, the 2013 Subaru Liberty adds a new-design steering wheel, new centre console, instrument panel and dashboard colours, one-touch indicators and the electronic park brake is relocated to the centre console.
As well as the 2.5i Premium, Subaru’s award-winning EyeSight safety system is added to Liberty GT Premium and new Liberty X models.
New colours appear in the form of dark grey metallic, deep sea blue pearl, brushed bronze metallic and Venetian red pearl.
