After starring on the first season of a popular New Zealand reality television show, Art Green has become a well-recognised public figure but it was his healthy, active lifestyle and the fact he has grown up with the Subaru brand that has seen him become a Subaru brand ambassador.
Subaru New Zealand currently has Art driving the Subaru Levorg because the company believes he is the ideal fit for the stylish sports wagon, which combines substance and sophistication in a turbocharged driving package.
Art embodies what Kiwi Subaru drivers are all about. They might use their Subarus for work by day but come 5pm, or the weekend, they are looking for an adventure and Subaru’s All-Wheel Drive, Boxer-engined beauties are the cars to transport them to where the action is.
Art, who has had a busy few years as the co-owner of the Clean Paleo health food company; writing a best-selling book; winning a high profile boxing match against an All Black; and competing in the Coast to Coast multisport race, is stoked to be part of the Subaru team.
“My family have owned Subarus throughout much of my life, so I grew up knowing the cars and experiencing how well they drive. They are well known for being classy yet practical cars that let you live an adventurous lifestyle - so I felt that Subaru was the perfect fit for me,” Art says.
He is enjoying the versatility of the Subaru Levorg, which hosts a wide variety of premium features, including Subaru’s EyeSight® driver assist technology, Bilstein suspension and blue-stitched interior trim. The spiritual successor to the much-missed Legacy GT wagon, Levorg’s sports wagon exterior dimensions cleverly clothe a spacious cabin, where leading-edge technology combines to produce a safe, Subaru All-Wheel Drive experience, plus an advanced communication and entertainment platform.
“I use my Levorg for everything. In any one day that could mean towing the boat and going for a wakeboard before work, then rocking up to various business meetings throughout the day, to then winding my way over to the Waitakere Ranges for an evening trail run,” Art says.
Art and his partner Matilda Rice, who was the winner of the first season of The Bachelor New Zealand, are enthusiastic about keeping healthy and fit and Art’s 98,000 social media followers can see how the Subaru Levorg is enabling his dynamic Kiwi lifestyle.
Subaru of New Zealand Managing Director Wallis Dumper says: “Art obviously leads an active life but he also promotes good times. His photos of his Subaru Levorg backing a boat into the sea at sunrise, epitomise what the Subaru ‘do’ philosophy is all about. It encapsulates how our All-Wheel Drive engineering prowess helps our Subaru drivers to enjoy getting off the beaten track, secure in the knowledge that they can get safely back onto it again,” Mr Dumper says.
