The two models share their turbocharged engines, all-wheel drive powertrains and hood-scooped faces.
The 2.0-liter "FA20" boxer engine generates a stated 268 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque.
However, from the B-pillar back, the Levorg differs from the WRX with the addition of almost 5 inches of overall length and increased storage space.
According to Subaru, the name Levorg pulls letters from the words "LEgacy" "reVOlution" "touRinG," which is odd and a bit roundabout, but as good an explanation as any.
Of course, the automaker's symmetrical all-wheel drive system is a standard feature.
The Levorg will be sold in Japan and European markets. The automaker is also rumored to be considering sending the adventure wagon to the Australian market, but will probably not be exporting to the US. Apparently, we Americans don't do wagons.
