Subaru Liberty set for mid-2017 refresh

Subaru USA releases details of refreshed 2018 Subaru Legacy/Liberty…

Australian sales of the Subaru Liberty have been disappointingly slow for the brand in Australia in recent times, however an update of the mid-size model might be just what it needs.

Subaru in the U.S. has just released details of the mid-life make-over that the Subaru Legacy will boast from around the middle of the year.

For the record, in the U.S. the Liberty is known as the Legacy.

The MY2018 Subaru Legacy update includes:

  • Revised front and rear styling
  • Redesigned interior with improved materials (as below)
  • Retuned suspension
  • Inclusion of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto in updated infotainment system
  • Optional Steering Responsive LED Headlight system

While Subaru USA has also confirmed that the model there will benefit from some tweaks to the CVT automatic transmission which they say provide more responsive and smoother acceleration.

Subaru will show-off the updated Liberty/Legacy at the upcoming Chicago Auto Show.

We will keep you updated with the latest Subaru Liberty News as it comes to hand.
