Sports Car in Disguise
By Big John on
Vehicle2006 Subaru Outback 2.5 XT Ltd 4dr Wagon AWD w/Ivory Int (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
ReviewThe Subaru Outback XT Limited is a sports car masquerading as a family wagon. With the 250 hp turbocharged, intercooled 2.5 liter Boxer engine and 5 speed manual transmission, it is a car for people like me who like to drive. In spite of its high road clearance (about 8.5 inches) it corners very well, and few drivers will ever take this car to its limits of adhesion. Apart from the driveability, this model has a load of creature comforts, including heated seats and a nice stereo system.
Best FeaturesIt's fast (0-60 in around 6 seconds) and corners well. State of the art AWD system. Comfortable seats, nice sound system, very attractive interior appointments. Controls and gauges are intuitively laid out.
Worst Features6-speed manual transmission; better stock tires -- the Bridgestones are adequate, but not outstanding. Gas mileage is so-so, particularly since no one who buys this car will be able to drive sedately. Could use an extra storage bin up front.
