Car reviews - Subaru - Liberty - 2.5i Premium
Major improvements to the Subaru Liberty make t one of the better mid-size buys

SUBARU’S Liberty has spent most of its life under the volume new-car buyer’s radar. Sales were respectable but in its 25 years in Australia, never startling.
Despite a period when opposition could not have been more aggressive, the 2015 Liberty has suddenly become a star.
Almost overnight, it’s one of the nation’s biggest-selling mid-size cars.
What happened? The January launch saw the new-car price plummet, the wagon dropped and the car’s extensive restyling and packaging hit its sweet spot.
Now it’s suited up with a more contemporary body, an expanded equipment inventory – including EyeSight collision avoidance for all variants – and added refinement to the ride to ensure it’s placed on the shopping list of every mid-size sedan buyer.
Here, we test the mid-spec 2.5i Premium to see how it stacks up against the other big players in the declining mid-size segment.
