Refreshed 2018 Subaru Liberty lists from an unchanged $30,240+ORC
The refreshed 2018 Subaru Liberty follows in the wheel tracks of the refreshed Outback and receives similar updates with only minor price rises for Premium and 3.6R variants.
THE REFRESHED 2018 Subaru Liberty range arrives in showrooms this month with the price of the entry-level 2.5i variant unchanged from its predecessor ($30,240+ORC) and that’s despite copping a raft of updates. Both the 2.5i Premium and 3.6R variants have seen price rises to $36,640+ORC and $43,140+ORC. This is up from $36,240+ORC and $42,740+ORC, respectively.

Key changes include a new bumper and grille, headlights and wing mirrors, Subaru’s latest-generation infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, the latest generation EyeSight, and tweaks to the suspension and engine for 2.5-litre variants. Premium variants add a suite of Vision Assist features including:
- Steering Responsive Headlights
- Adaptive Driving Beam
- Side View Monitor
- Front View Monitor
Colin Christie, Managing Director, Subaru Australia, said: “Liberty has long been a cornerstone of Subaru’s range and reputation in Australia and these latest refinements are a great reminder of why it’s so well established.
“The balance of specification, safety and style make the revised Liberty a compelling package – even more so when you factor in the sure-footed All-Wheel Drive fun driving factor.
“It also highlights Subaru’s long-held commitment to safety, with third-generation EyeSight adding even more capability to a driver assist system that is recognised by insurers and safety experts alike for its capability in helping avoid or reduce the impact of accidents.”
Practical Motoring has driven the refreshed Liberty and will post its review this Friday once the Embargo lifts. Stay tuned.
