Subaru Brumby 2025: A Compact Ute with WRX Power and Levorg Style – Love the old Subaru Brumby? You may wonder if the Japanese company will ever bring back the tiny car popular in the 1980s and 1990s. There has yet to be an official word on this, but some digital artists have sketched what the new WRX and Levorg models might look like on a modern Brumby.
What’s Different in 2025?
The 2025 Subaru Brumby is not a real car. It is a concept drawing by Theo Throttle, who shared it on Instagram. He built it around the new Subaru Levorg and added a truck body with two doors, a short bed, and a roll bar. He made it more off-road by adding skid plates, roof lights, a raised frame, and big tires.
This makes a sleek and fast SUV that looks like a mix between a WRX and a Brat (what people in the US call the Brumby). It also looks like the Hyundai Santa Cruz and the Ford Maverick, both new small trucks that came out in the US not long ago.
Design: Exterior and Interior
The 2025 Subaru Brumby’s body resembles the Levorg, which shares its base and engine with the new WRX. The triangular grille, LED headlights and tail lights, and oversized hood scoop are all on the front end. The side view shows a top that looks like a coupe, wheel arches that are pushed out, and black door handles. There are LED headlights, a dual exhaust system, and a Subaru badge on the back of the car.
The inside will look a lot like the Levorg and WRX, with a stylish but helpful layout. A digital instrument panel, a prominent touchscreen entertainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a steering wheel with a flat bottom would all be on the dashboard. The seats would be made of leather or cloth and have Brumby logos and stitching that stand out. To make more room in the bed, the back seats would fold down.
For the 2025 Subaru Brumby, the motor would come from the WRX and Levorg. It would be a 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder boxer engine with 130 kW of power and 300 Nm of torque. There would be either a continuously variable transmission (CVT) or a six-speed manual gearbox paired with the engine. Subaru’s symmetrical all-wheel drive system would send power to all four wheels.
The 2025 Subaru Brumby would be fast for a small car; it would go from 0 to 100 km/h in about 8 seconds and reach a top speed of over 200 km/h. With an estimated combined rate of about 8 L/100 km, the gas mileage would be satisfactory. The small amount of weight it could pull would be about 1.5 tonnes.
Release Date and Price
The 2025 Subaru Brumby is not an official Subaru project. Instead, it is a fan-made idea that shows what might be possible if Subaru decides to bring back the Brumby name. But Subaru has said it wants to avoid entering the small ute market, so there are no signs that it will do so.
We don’t know when or how much the 2025 Subaru Brumby will cost, and it probably never will. If we had to guess, though, we might say that such a car would come out in late 2024 or early 2025 and cost between $35,000 and $40,000 in Australia.
