More left jab than right hook

Wheels (Australia) - - First Drives -

You could be for­given for think­ing the 2.5-litre atmo boxer four is a car­ry­over, but Subaru says it’s not. It says 90 per­cent of the en­gine com­po­nents have been ‘re­vised’ with ev­ery­thing from the block, head, crank, con­rods, pis­tons, val­ve­train and ex­haust, to the en­gine man­age­ment, in­jec­tors, in­let man­i­fold and spark plugs re­designed. Even the air fil­ter is new. Sounds sig­nif­i­cant enough, and a power in­crease of 10kw and ef­fi­ciency gain of 8.6 per­cent are worth­while from an un­changed 2498cc swept ca­pac­ity.
