All new Subarus are to come with three years’ free servicing as part of a new sales drive.

The offer runs from 1 February to 30 April and covers the entire Impreza, Forester, Legacy and Outback line-up.

It gives owners three years’ peace of mind up to 36,000 miles, which covers the first three major services. All items listed in the Subaru Owner’s Service and Warranty book are free of charge – including labour.

This and other initiatives – such as the 24-hour Test Drive programme – are aimed at increasing Subaru sales from last year’s 8,823 units to around 11,000 cars.

Subaru’s range starts at £14,750 for the Impreza 2.0 GX saloon, with the Forester range available from £16,695 for the 2.0 X. Legacy prices start at £16,200 for the 2.0i saloon (all on-the-road).

Apart from the free servicing offer, all models benefit from a six year/60,000 mile warranty plus three years’ paintwork and now 12 years’ anti-corrosion cover (with inspections) and three years’ free membership of Subaru Assistance.
