Subaru's "crossover" mid-size sport-utility vehicle continues for 2005 with only subtle alterations as a pleasant alternative to rougher truck-based models. Power for the base 2.5 X and 2.5 XS comes from a 165-horsepower four-cylinder engine, while the 2.5 XT offers a gutsier a 210-horsepower turbocharged 2.5-liter engine, among other upgrades. All-wheel drive and a five-speed manual gearbox come standard, with a four-speed automatic transmission optional. Dual front-side and head airbags, an AM/FM/weather band/CD stereo, air conditioning, fog lights, and keyless entry are among its myriad standard features. Meanwhile, the XS adds four-wheel disc brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution, automatic air conditioning, a CD changer, heated seats, mirrors and windshield wipers, a limited-slip differential, and alloy wheels. The L.L. Bean Edition includes specially embroidered floor mats and revised alloy wheels, with its rear seatbacks and cargo floor covered with a water-resistant surface.

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.
