SUBARU LIBERTY EXIGA WAGON
Price as tested: $43,350 drive away.
Power: 123kW @ 5600rpm and 229Nm of torque @ 4000rpm
from a 2.5l boxer engine.
0-100km/h: 10.9 seconds (claimed).
For: Comfort, seating and luggage space if only four seats used,
five star safety rating and standard DVD system.
Against: Looks a bit tall, lack of rear legroom and luggage
space when two rear seats used.
Best suit: Anyone who wants a reliable, safe, well equipped
Insurance: 12-month comprehensive insurance for a 25-year-
old male: Sydney $1025, Darwin $700, Brisbane $573 and
PEOPLE movers are a great idea, with their
Brady Bunch like family carrying capacity
and enough luggage space to lug around
your golf clubs and kid's inflatable jumping
castle. They are also usually uglier than a boxer after
his maiden bout.
Not all people movers are the same though. Subaru
calls its latest model the Liberty Exiga a wagon. I think
it's half a wagon and half a people mover, capable of
carrying six passengers including the driver in three
Those seated directly behind the two front seats
have modest leg room and the space between them is
taken up by an armrest containing cup holders and the
remote for the standard equipment, roof-mounted DVD
player with a nine-inch screen.
The dash is the same used in the Impreza, but has a
dual-zone climate control system on the lower half of
the centre console.
Handling was a big surprise, I expected it to be a
top-heavy leaner as I weaved through corners. Not
much body roll was felt and, after a few roundabouts,
you get used to picking the right moment to ease off the
go pedal and when to reapply for reasonably vigorous
acceleration from the 2.5 litre boxer engine.
The Exiga is a different type of wagon. It would suit
families with four children or less who don't have much
to lug around, or would be excellent for a smaller fami-
ly who could use the inside space and foldaway seating.

Wagon with benefits: The new Exiga seats six.
