2010 Subaru Liberty Touring Teaser Revealed For Japanese Market

Mike Stevens | Apr 14, 2009

Having seen the Liberty/Legacy-based 2010 Subaru Outback in all its high-riding glory, it isn’t difficult to venture a guess at what the wagon version of the 2010 Subaru Liberty sedan might look like.

To help us along, Subaru Japan has revealed this teaser image of the official 2010 Subaru Legacy Touring wagon. Visually, it’s essentially the same car, but without all the little bits and pieces that make it an Outback, such as the higher suspension and body cladding.

The main points of difference in this image are the slightly different side mirrors, headlight assembly and larger side intakes on the front bumper. That’s likely because this is the Japanese version of the car, rather than because of any intended differences between the wagon and the sedan.

There are few other details at the moment, so keep your dial tuned to TMR.

    Well in my eyes they have fixed all that is wrong with the US model. I hope there are new tailights aswell

    Hmm. still not sure but it looks a lot better than the outback and the sedan (not that every car on the planet doesn't look better than the sedan!)
    I hope they release more photos VERY soon because I need to make a decision to hold off ( and get 10% tax break) or go to VW for an R36 (and get 30%) more photos of top spec wagon NOW PLEASE!

    Ghw don't buy this or an R36, get a Skoda Octavia RS! I have a mate who bought one (I have one too) coming from a Subaru Liberty 3.0R Spec B an he loves it! Have a look at one!

    Why the ***ens would you buy a Skoda after having a Subaru.
    Skoda's the biggest junk going round.

    Hmmmm that couldn't be more incorrect! If I didn't like then why did I buy it? I lookedvat all the cars in the 30-40k price range and concluded that the Octavia RS was the best mix of performane, space, value and practicality available in that price range, and I'd say in the whole country. Maybe you should have a look at one?

    I'm not sure I understand why someone would go backwards from a 3.0RB to an Octavia? doesn't make sense to me.
    If I'm going to upgrade then the only logical step up in VAG besides the over-rated and over-priced Audi (my 1.8TQ was rubbish) is VW or am I missing something? Skoda appears to be a budget VW with very poor styling (the only reason I'm considering a move away from Subaru to begin with given what I've seen so far of the pending model) but each to their own I suppose "one man's trash..."

    Oh I'm sorry, isn't a fantastic quality, great value brand like Skoda good enough for someone who drives a Subaru Liberty? The Liberty is FAR from a posh car and the 3.0R-B is slower and much more expensive than my Octavia RS. Which just isn't good enough. I owned a 2000 Liberty before my Skoda and while it was a good car, the Skoda is about ten times better in every area. GHW, you tool, how about checking a Skoda out huh? Might change your perceptions, and it's not like you're too good for them, I mean you drive a Subaru for gods sake!

    Before my iPhone had a spazz, I was gonna say that yeah you're missing something. Skodas are better quality than VW and they're more reliable. Mine had it's 15,000km service yesterday and nothing has gone wrong in those kms, which is the opposite to many Golf/Passat owners I know. Also, what about the Superb that comes out in July? The top spec V6 4x4 is only $57,000 and the only desirable option is satnav (that's how well equipped it is) so if the Octavia is too "cheap" then maybe you should try the Superb upon it's release in late June/early July. You may very well be impressed, as I was at the Melbourne motorshow this year.
