Subaru has announced plans to commercialize the Levorg wagon in UK starting this fall.

UK sales for Subaru jumped by 23 percent in 2014 compared to the previous year and this massive boost had a lot to do with new arrivals such as the WRX STI and Impreza while some of their current models got a well-received price cut. To further increase sales, Subaru UK will be adding the Forester Lineartronic diesel in April, the Outback in March and most importantly, the Levorg wagon sometime this fall.

No further details were released about the Levorg but we do know the JDM-spec model can be had with a direct-injection 1.6-liter DIT turbo rated at 170 HP (125 kW) and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) or with a beefier 2.0-liter DIT turbo generating 300 HP (221 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft). Both engines work with a symmetrical all-wheel drive system receiving power from a Lineartronic transmission (for the 1.6) or a Sport Lineartronic (for the 2.0).

In Japan, the Subaru Levorg 1.6 rides on 17-inch alloy wheels wrapped around in 215/50/R17 tires whereas the Levorg 2.0 gets bigger 18-inch rims with 224/45R18 tires. The vehicle weighs 1,504 kg (3,315 lbs) and benefits from a strut front suspension combined with a rear double wishbone setup.

Pricing details for the Subaru Levorg (UK-spec) will be published closer to the model's launch.
