Subaru Liberty used car review
RACV rates the value and reliability of the second-hand Subaru Liberty.
Subaru Liberty may not be the top-selling medium-size family sedan, but a unique character endears it to owners, and on the used-car market it holds its value better than most.
At the end of 2014, Liberty underwent a substantial makeover as it moved into the sixth generation, with smarter styling, more cabin space, extra standard equipment and better safety credentials. At the same time, the wagon was dropped, leaving the high-riding Outback to fill that space for Subaru.
The most popular version on the used market is the well-equipped, leather-trimmed 2.5i Premium four-cylinder model, followed by the top-of-the-range 3.6R six-cylinder version. Even the base 2.5i has an extensive list of creature comforts and safety features. Liberty’s large touch-screen, along with an advanced infotainment system and speech recognition, adds to the appeal but it doesn’t have all the latest connectivity features. Subaru’s practice of annual upgrades means later versions will have more kit.
