Subaru to Farewelll Liberty Line-Up
After 31 years as a cornerstone of its range, Subaru Australia today announced the end of the Liberty era is approaching.
The medium-sized Liberty played a significant role in growing Subaru’s Australian presence, from launch of the first generation in 1989.
It marked a calculated shift in Subaru’s passenger car range towards sophisticated metropolitan market success, which was recognised by a long series of automotive awards.
These awards distinguished Liberty from the medium market pack, which over the following two decades represented a significant part of the Australian automotive landscape.
More recent contraction of the medium sector has seen Subaru’s burgeoning Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) range surpass Liberty’s previous successes – not least with the Outback, which has always shared the same platform.
Over the past two years, Liberty has sold a combined total of 2,441, compared to Outback’s sales of 13,844 – a clear indication of market preferences.
Over the generations, Liberty has sold more than 153,700 in Australia.
