It's Not a Box or Wagon - SVX Sporty
By cpt kirk on


1995 Subaru SVX L 2dr Coupe AWD


I wanted a car that would get good gas
milage and would get me up and down
the steep hills during a snow storm.
I got lucky and bought a 1995 SVX AWD
and have been very happy. Try 28mpg on
the highway with a lot of extra peddal
to go; about 90 mph @3500rpms. I get
about 19mpg city. This car takes
premium gas. I had no trouble getting
up to Alta, Utah, for a powder ski day
when only 4x4's and cars with chains
were allowed up the canyon. Under the
paint is a zinc coating to help reduce
corrosion - so smart! Fender wells
designed to keep splashes/road tar
from going all over the car's body.
Overall great (Italian)styling.

Best Features

Winter/summer, just set the climate control to 72 degrees and drive. Fold down back seats open to trunk. Handles as if on rails. Automatic trans okay; so you can hold a drink or cell phone and attempt to drive (this gets tougher to do with a standard shifter).

Worst Features

Bring back the SVX. More headroom please. The metal is so-so thin and tends to collect dings (how about a strip guard). The WRX SCi is a 4 cyl with a turbo. I can't even think of what the SVX 6cyl with a turbo would have been like (Porsche 911 Turbo?).
