Exactly, it is a right-hand drive Brat.

UK Brat = MV

Australia Brat = Brumby

 

The base wagons, sedans, etc. were also called Leones in Australia and Japan; vs the trim levels. (GL or DL)

 

In the UK the sedans and wagons are trims too, but go by ME, MV, etc.

 

 

Nice Subie 81MV :D

This is pretty interesting. I've always wondered if there was a Badge on them stating the model/trim level. We have GL/DL/Brat, Would Aus/UK actually have a badge that says Brumby/MV? That would be cool.
