Thanks to the car-based foundation, the Subaru Forester has always been better than half SUV. The compromise, at least in the first two generations of the car was smaller and less capable of ground clearance off road. However, these “negative” were generally not of concern, since most buyers in this segment are looking for a vehicle that can handle the harsh driving conditions, ski vacations and the occasional trip to the track unlike hard core off-road Boulder-bashing.

So what is this sound bite National Geographic has to do with the Subaru Baja? Well, not visually similar Subaru was also designed to adapt to changing needs, despite the dictates of the owner, not its survival.

Unfortunately, like many past experiences of Mother Nature, the Subaru Baja has not taken any.

Platform based on the Legacy / Outback, the Subaru Baja was produced from 2003-’06. As for its exterior design, the attractiveness of the Low “mark” is what to say. We are confident that the heavy coating along the bottom of the body is supposed to look strong, but it looked like a Pontiac stylist in the late 80′s had infiltrated Subaru design studio.
Instead, Sedan trunk, closed trailer or cargo area of the premises, Baja display a small open cargo box as pick-up. Improve the versatility of the Subaru with a “Switchback”, otherwise known as a midge. Midge allowed the front wall of the bed and the rear seat backrest can be folded down and the passenger area. This increase in bed length 41-60 cm. Rear window was fixed in place, however, that has placed restrictions on the size and shape of objects that fit.
The Subaru Baja was originally available in standard finish and Sport. Baja comes with standard air conditioning, leather seats, full power accessories, CD player, alloy wheels 16 inches and a power sunroof. Sport was more of a base set, as replaced upholstery for leather and had a manual, power driver seat no. Options include a bed extender, a rack mounted on a bed and a premium audio system with six-CD changer. The interior design was essentially the same as that of the inheritance, which meant high quality materials, a layout control easy and comfortable seating.
Power was provided by a 2.5-liter flat-4, which is a respectable 165 horsepower and 166 lb-ft of torque. A five-speed manual transmission is standard with an optional four-speed automatic. Although the 2.5 was a decent output, there is only so much thrust as possible, and welcomed nearly 3700 pounds of all-wheel drive Subie. Our test clocked 0-60 in 9.9 seconds (manual) – about equivalent to a compact V6 pickup of the day.
The following year, debuted Baja Turbo. Equipped with a turbocharged version of 2.5, it sports 210 hp and 235 lb-ft of torque. The Baja Turbo is more than 2 seconds faster to 60 km / h and more fun to drive. Edmunds road tests quote summarizes, “It’s not exactly a performance car, but it’s much more fun to drive than most other pickups and SUVs.”
In theory, the Subaru Baja seemed perfect sense, offers the best of a family sedan with the utility of a compact pickup. But it fell a little ‘short in some areas. Passenger capacity was limited to only four instead of five regular Legacy. And towing capacity is rated at just 2000 kg with an automatic and 2400 pounds of manuals.
Still, four-wheel drive, high ground clearance and a versatile cargo bed, the Subaru Baja could be the ideal choice for outdoor enthusiasts with mountain biking, canoeing and hiking. Mix in a Subaru strong reputation for reliability, easy to deal with the size of Baja, and excellent fuel economy (compared to the pickup, V6), and this odd duck, and the car can be more rational than people originally thought Subaru Baja.
