Why New Subaru Liberty 2.5i Premium is the Best Buy?
The mid-sized saloon segment is a hotly contested part of the Australian car market. Many people opt for a Subaru Liberty as they have a fantastic range of equipment, an excellent set of safety features and an affordable price. When they are looking for a Subaru Liberty for sale, some people will naturally be attracted to the 2.5i Premium. This understandable, as this car sits at the top of the new Subaru Liberty range. There are plenty of features to get excited about, so let’s take a closer look at what the Liberty 2.5i Premium has to offer.
The 3rd Generation EyeSight Safety System
For many drivers, this is the jewel in the crown as far as safety is concerned. This advanced safety suite has loads of features to make your drive safer, such as pre-collision steering assist, pre-collision braking, pre-collision braking assist, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warnings, lead vehicle alert and brake light detection. A further Advanced Vision Package adds, even more, features, such as blind spot monitoring, lane change assist, rear cross traffic alerts, high beam assist and an automatic dimming rear mirror. This already excellent safety system has received a host of new features in its 3rd generation incarnation. The EyeSight system will now detect rear brake lights ahead of the car and provide steering assistance in order to avoid a frontal collision. EyeSight is fitted as standard on the new Subaru Liberty 2.5i Premium.
The Driving Experience
As you would expect with a Subaru car, the drivetrain is a sure-footed AWD affair. The 18” wheels are shod with Dunlop tyres which provide plenty of sticky grip. The Liberty grips the road better than any other car in the mid-sized saloon segment. The power plant is a 2.5 litre fuel injected, four cylinder engine that generates 129kW of power and 235 Nm of torque. It is paired with a CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) that is far more responsive than its rivals. Gear changes are smooth, clean and optimal for a better driving experience. The Liberty feels solid when driving, and yet it remains poised in the bends, which inspires confidence.
The Liberty Premium 2.5i has an impressive amount of equipment on board, with features such as LED headlights, 18” wheels, powered seat adjustment, a sunroof, a new 7” touchscreen, a reversing camera and a sat nav unit. The cabin feels very refined, and the driving position feels more like an SUV with plenty of all round visibility. Surprisingly all this car is available for under $40,000 which makes the Subaru Liberty 2.5i Premium quite a bargain.
