Subaru 1.8 (Leone) 70.7% always on SORN, 75.7% seasonally SORN'd

Funnily enough, the Subaru Leone range was also an agricultural mainstay for many, many years before the Impreza turned up to start selling in huge numbers to the rally jacket brigade. The capable and quirky saloon and estate range featured that same flat-four engine/symmetrical four-wheel drive layout that underpins the current Subaru range.
