23rd November, 2005

The Subaru Liberty 3.0R has been named Australia’s Best Luxury Car under $57,000, by Australia’s combined motoring organisations.

Cars were evaluated by the NRMA, RACV, RACQ, RAASA, RACWA, RACT and AANT against a broad range of criteria including: on road performance, design, value and functionality.

Subaru Australia Managing Director, Nick Senior, said: “Premium Liberty variants including the 3.0R and 3.0R spec B now represent more than 40 per cent of Liberty sales. More than 13 per cent of Subaru owners are now spending more than $50,000 on their car and that’s clear proof of the perception of Subaru as a premium brand. This luxury car award is further evidence that Subaru is increasingly recognised as a manufacturer of premium cars. Our customer feedback strongly indicates that comprehensive specification lists combined with Subaru’s reputation for safety, engineering and All-Wheel Drive, make models such as Liberty 3.0R remarkable value.”
