In the world of “sports” crossover More than the actual number sports car, The idea of ​​the wagon, and the variation of performance with it seems to be tremendous.but Volvo Abolition of special order V90, Such a car doesn’t seem to exist on the market today.That is, unless we are talking Australia..

according to CarExpert, Subaru brings WRX version of Levorg wagon to Oz..For those unfamiliar, Levorg is essentially a successor heritage wagon. With the growing size of the Legacy and the only outback in the form of a long roof, the Impreza-based Levorg has established itself in the still wagon-friendly market: Japan And in Europe, we offer wagons with almost the same footprint as the 4th generation Legacy wagons.

In the domestic market, the first-generation 2014-20 Levorg offered a choice of two turbocharged boxer engines. The base is 1.6 liters with 168 horsepower and 2.0 liters with 296 horsepower. However, the second-generation Levorg has only one engine so far, and a 1.8-liter boxer produces 174 horsepower.

CarExpert However, when it debuted in Australia in the fourth quarter of this year, Levorg said Ascent.. In addition, the FA24 boxer is reported to generate 260 horsepower at Ascent, while the Levorg is reported to cancel the 286.
