Subaru Levorg STI Sport R Debuts In Japan With The WRX’s Engine

Alongside the WRX S4, Subaru unveiled the updated JDM-spec Levorg range which besides a series of minor model year updates gains an STI Sport R trim level that is powered by the turbocharged 2.4-liter engine of its sporty four-door sibling.
The current generation of the Levorg was unveiled in 2020. The fact that the model is sharing the Subaru Global Platform, several body panels, and the interior with the WRX makes it a fitting choice for the STI badge. However, just like the JDM-Spec WRX S4, the Levorg is not a full-blown STI but instead, it is available in the STI Sport R trim level which brings added performance and slightly sportier styling.
