Subaru Liberty

Dear Liberty

You arrived in 1989 like a breath of fresh air on a sultry summer’s day. You set new standards, not just for Subaru but for the medium sized sedan market.

Families loved your smooth ride; the choice of wagon or sedan was hard as your wagons drove like sedans and your sedans had the space of wagons.

And then you added the turbo charged Liberty GT models. They were “Grand Tourers” in every sense of the word, winning Rallies and hearts wherever you went and establishing a fine pedigree for your offspring, the incredible WRX.

In fact, you started a whole new family with your descendants as numerous as the stars in the Subaru constellation…Impreza, WRX, Forester, Outback, and Tribeca. How many children have been kept safe by you, young adults learnt to drive with you and new families taken their first holiday with you?

So many memories and so many achievements. Like winning Subaru’s first ever World Rally Event in New Zealand, winning Subaru’s first Wheels Car of the Year Award, winning Subaru’s first Japanese Car of the Year Award and so many “Australia’s Best Medium car” Awards.

And not just awards, but hearts and minds were also won. You showed what a Subaru can be and you never looked back, getting better and better with each of your six generations, while spawning new models which in turn grew to become family favourites.

With a Subaru Liberty, everyone knew they were in safe hands.

But times change and so your customers now look to different models to meet their needs, models like Impreza sedan with its refined driving experience and Liberty like pedigree.

Outback, having been born from the Liberty Wagon in 1996, can meet the needs of growing families with large cabins and cargo areas, sedan like driving feel and the freedom of abundant ground clearance and Subaru’s famous Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive.

Your groundbreaking Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system is also used in WRX, Forester and XV so you’re never really far away.

In fact, given your legendary reliability, extraordinary build quality and wonderful driving fun, we’ll be seeing you on Australia’s roads for years to come as your owners continue to enjoy their Subaru Liberty.

As we said when we first met you: “One drive and you’ll know why we called it Liberty.”
