Saw one at Bondi Beach in Sydney, Australia when I was there in March. It caught me offguard initially because I didn't know they were available there yet. Remember thinking it looked good, definitely more substantial than the Impreza.

Got an email from my local Subaru dealership here in Pittsfield, MA saying they have one to check out on Monday... Free lunch too so it might be worth the bike ride over..

itll be awesome, my wifes impreza is awesome and ground clearance would be awesomer.

who cares about resale value? this is an outback, not getting something else til at least 200k miles!

i have a few parts that aren't supposed to be there...

As much as I wanted to wait until Sept. for the XV I couldn't wait any longer and picked up an Impreza Sport Limited instead. Couldn't be happier with it!

funny i did the exact same thing. its also a dark grey impreza sport limited. was let down a bit by the fuel mileage of the xv, was expecting 34 or 35, my wife drives almost 100 miles a day. i also heard a long time ago it would have start/stop, but that wont come to the us for years. the wife loves the extra height of my outback, but now she is loving her impreza.

I stopped by to check these out yesterday. What an awesome little car. More ground clearance then my Outback w/King springs.

I love the "Desert Khaki" too!


I drive a dyke bus.

First thing I said when I saw this car was, "cool, they are bringing back the Outback Sport." I looked into getting one when I got my full Size Outback. That being said I really don't like the new Imprezas at all. However, this looks like a lot of fun and I am really liking the orange color they are showing in the ads. If I can get one of these with a hitch, I may end up giving the wife my Outback and trading her car in for one of these. In orange of course.
