Subaru Levorg review - Reliability and Safety

Subaru is rightly proud of its Eyesight safety system, while a five-year warranty gives peace of mind

All Levorgs come fitted with Subaru’s ‘Eyesight’ technology, a suite of active safety aids that act as a second pair of eyes to help keep the car out of trouble. The dual-camera system continually scans the road ahead for pedestrians and vehicles, and Subaru says it can completely avoid front-end collisions below 30mph. When you’re waiting in traffic, the system prompts you if the car in front has moved off. 

It’ll brake itself at higher speeds, too, while lane departure warning, pre-collision steering assist and adaptive cruise control also feature with adaptive headlights and High Beam Assist. It’s tech like this that helped the Levorg achieve a five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP. Of course, it comes with six airbags, and ISOFIX mounting for child seats. Subaru’s excellence in this field saw it crowned best for safety features in our 2019 Driver Power survey, beating 29 other manufacturers.

The Levorg hasn’t sold well enough to be included in any Driver Power survey so far. However, Subaru is a regular at the top of our manufacturer rankings, finishing 6th in 2019, and its dealers were ranked 3 best in the same survey. Most of the Levorg’s parts are shared with other models in the range, so it should prove dependable. The Japanese firm’s reliability record is very strong overall.

Warranty

Like all Subarus, the Levorg comes with a five-year, 100,000-mile warranty as standard. That’s better coverage than most German rivals, and many mainstream estates. There’s also 12 years protection against corrosion, which will interest owners looking to hold onto their cars. 

Servicing

Despite being good, Subaru’s dealer network isn’t the largest in the UK, so those looking to maintain their main dealer history might have to travel further than they expect. There’s no fixed-price servicing either, so bills could vary according to which dealer you visit.
