Not quite a sedan, not quite a pickup truck, Subaru's mid-size Baja represents the modern-day equivalent of the old Chevrolet El Camino. This is basically a Legacy station wagon in which a small pickup bed has been grafted onto the vehicle's rear end, just behind the back seats. As with the full-size truck-based Chevrolet Avalanche it resembles in concept, a small cargo bed pass-through opening to the passenger compartment can expand the Baja's cargo-carrying abilities. However, since it's based on a car, rather than a truck platform, its hauling abilities are limited to relatively light-duty tasks. Base Baja Sport models are powered by a 165-horsepower horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine, while the Baja Turbo benefits from a 210-horsepower version. A five-speed manual transmission is standard and a four-speed automatic is optional. Standard features include four-wheel-disc anti-lock brakes, air conditioning, a CD stereo, power driver's seat and moonroof, fog lights, keyless entry, roof rails, leather upholstery and alloy wheels. Expect few changes for 2005.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
