2015 Subaru Liberty 3.6R: Golf weekender

A trip to the golf course with four friends presents a unique challenge for the new Liberty. Can you fit all 5 golfers and their bags in to this mid sized sedan?

2015 Subaru Liberty 3.6R Review

Is this the best mid-sized Japanese sedan?

2015 Subaru Liberty Review

Improvements all-round for the Subaru Liberty make it more enticing for buyers. But it's not all roses, Matt Campbell finds.

Medium car comparison : Toyota Camry v Mazda 6 v Nissan Altima v Skoda Octavia v Holden Malibu v Hyundai i40

Medium is the new large. By 2017 when the large car segment will have been thrown into further disarray with the loss of the Ford Falcon and question marks surrounding imported replacements for the Holden Commodore and Toyota Aurion, it really has to be. The mass exodus from large six-cylinder family sedans that has happened in recent years, however, hasn’t been the expected boon for medium cars...

2015 Subaru Liberty 3.6R Review

The sixth generation Subaru Liberty is better looking and more feature packed than before. The nameplate had become a little uninspiring in its previous incarnation, the Liberty is back. What a change from the previous generation – it’s not as boxy looking, with more sophisticated, European inspired lines. This is the top-of-the-line Liberty 3...

Holden Calais V v Subaru Liberty 3.6R Comparison

The Holden Commodore and Ford Falcon were long the default options for families wanting a bucketload of space, a sporty drive and a powerful six-cylinder engine. And let’s not forget the somewhat less inspiring Toyota Aurion, too. Sometimes forgotten though, and somewhat pushed off to the side, is the mid-sized Subaru Liberty — especially in 3...

Kia Optima 2.4 Si v Subaru Liberty 2.5i Premium Comparison

Mid-size sedans don't get much love in Australia anymore, but offering practicality, driving enjoyment and affordability, here we bring two of the segment's best examples together...

Subaru Liberty Old v New Comparison: Fourth-generation 3.0R v sixth-gen 3.6R

Reflecting on a brand's past is a great way to highlight progress. CarAdvice has previously compared iconic models such as the Jaguar E-Type, Peugeot 205 GTi and Mini Cooper S with their newest respective iterations. And within the Subaru family, we’ve looked closely at the WRX and its harder-edged sibling the STI...

Subaru Liberty 3.6R could be the next STi-tweaked tS model

There’s a strong chance that the impressive Subaru Liberty 3.6R will be the next model in line for a tS special edition version, CarAdvice has learned. The Subaru Liberty flagship variant apparently has the sportiness required to justify such a variant, with Subaru Australia managing director Nick Senior saying that any tS model has to be able to pull off the badge...

Seven cars Australians should buy more of: 2016 mid-year report

You may have seen our hugely popular list of cars that Aussies should be buying, but aren’t. And while it hasn’t done anything to improve the fortunes of the Peugeot 308 – despite our vehement insistence that it is one of the cars that should get small car purchasers through the door – the response was excellent...

2012 Subaru Liberty 2.5i Review

I had my Liberty for just over 3 years and averaged 7.4 lt/100 which I thought was great fuel economy. Best I have seen was 6.2 lt/100 on a trip to Kiama. While no ball of fire it certainly had decent performance and would effortlessly hold the speed limit of the 113kmh GPS measured speed I would set it to...

2016 Subaru Liberty 2.5i Review

Having this vehicle for one day as a loan car, it impressed myself to a degree where I have to share my thoughts on it. For such a small engine with a 129KW, the 2.5L 4 Cylinder gets the car moving and isn't much of a slouch despite the CVT transmission. The CVT does affect the quality of the drive being a bit jerky and delayed acceleration...

2016 Subaru Liberty 3.6r Review

The Japanese are known for their exacting standards of quality, their technological achievements, their Kaizen approach to improvement, and their slightly left of centre quirkiness. No industry epitomises these traits more than the Japanese automotive industry, and no Japanese manufacturer more so than Subaru...

2013 Subaru Liberty 2.5i Review

The Subie came into our lives a tad over 12 months ago and was quickly named by the kids - who loved it from the time we picked it up. The previous owner wisely ticked the 'luxury pack' box, so our base model has light coloured leather seats, electric adjustment of the drivers seat, a 'better' audio system and sat nav...
