1.6-litre Direct Injection Turbo Engine
The newest member of the SUBARU BOXER engine family, the 1.6-litre DIT engine achieves an ideal balance between efficiency, powerful performance, and low emissions. Utilising both direct fuel injection and a twin-scroll turbocharger results in more power and decreased petrol consumption, despite having a smaller displacement vs. previous generations.
SUBARU Intelligent Drive (SI-DRIVE) allows a selection of engine and transmission characteristics according to the driver’s driving style, driving expectations, and driving situations. It offers two distinctive functions: Intelligent and Sport. Intelligent mode provides smoother acceleration and more efficient operation, whilst Sport mode offers a more exciting driving experience, with enhanced power and acceleration.
SUBARU BOXER ENGINE: Balanced and Composed.
The horizontally opposed configuration of the SUBARU BOXER engine places the pistons 180 degrees apart, for a lower, flatter profile than that of other engine types. This gives the engine, and overall vehicle, a lower centre of gravity, a lower profile, and a more balanced distribution of weight.
Low Centre of Gravity
All of the heavy moving components inside a horizontally opposed engine - the connecting rods, pistons, camshafts and valve train - are positioned on a horizontal plane, as low as possible. This gives SUBARU vehicles a distinctly lower centre of gravity versus vehicles with “inline” and “v” configured engines, resulting in numerous handling and performance benefits.
LINEARTRONIC CVT: Shift your expectations.
A passenger car with All-Wheel Drive - it was a totally new concept when SUBARU introduced it to the world. Afterward, public perception of AWD technology changed forever. The trend continues with the latest Lineartronic CVT found in the Levorg. Responsive and lightweight, this transmission rejects the status quo with unexpected precision and liveliness.
Always adapting, always performing.
Unburdened by having fixed gear ratios like a conventional automatic transmission, the Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission of the Levorg uses infinitely variable gear ratios to stay in the correct rev-range at all times, for smooth acceleration and enhanced efficiency.
Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive: Four points of contact.
Traction in all conditions. There’s a reason Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system is respected around the world. When road conditions are demanding, it delivers control and composure where other vehicles stumble by evenly distributing power to all four wheels. The benefits are immediately apparent - more controlled cornering, better traction in slippery conditions, and enhanced acceleration. The overall sensation is that driving becomes an easier, safer and more enjoyable affair.
Vehicle Dynamics Control System with Active Torque Vectoring
Vehicle Dynamics Control System uses an array of sensors to monitor and analyse the vehicle’s motion in relation to driver input and driving conditions. To help the driver maintain control, Vehicle Dynamics Control System adjusts AWD torque distribution, engine output, and braking force to each wheel, resulting in a more predictable and safe driving experience. Active Torque Vectoring will strategically apply braking forces, shifting torque to the outside wheels during a turn, resulting in increased steering responsiveness and more control.
