TECH TALK­ING POINTS

Top Gear (Philippines) - - New Metal -

1. STA­TION WAGON There’s no longer a sta­tion wagon un­less you count the Out­back. Subaru has cho­sen the side of ef­fi­ciency in the pack­ag­ing of the Levorg. It fits the wagon bill and ticks all the right boxes.

2. FB16 BOXER EN­GINE

Subaru’s lat­est turbo boxer en­gine is also the small­est we’ve seen from the man­u­fac­turer. Direct-in­jec­tion al­lows for higher com­pres­sion and bet­ter off-boost power with­out the need for pre­mium fuel.

3. SOFT-TOUCH SUR­FACES

There are plenty of pre­mium-feel­ing ma­te­ri­als. Blue stitch­ing in­stead of the sportier red is a neat touch.

4.EYE­SIGHT TECH

Subaru’s col­lec­tion of driver aids make their cars some of the high­est-rated ve­hi­cles in terms of safety.

5.RE­VISED SUS­PEN­SION

In­creas­ing cargo ca­pac­ity with­out chang­ing the sus­pen­sion tun­ing would wreak havoc on the ride and han­dling char­ac­ter­is­tics oth­er­wise.
