Above average looks for a wagon. Above average ride and handling andperformance from the 2.2-liter, 130-horsepower, 4-cylinder engine. Full-time four-wheel drive means you can thumb your nose at the changing of the seasons.Only sore point was that the
brakes were a bit too mushy for our liking. Good hauler for small family or business. The base price is where Subarucredibility comes into question: $19,324 for the subcompact four-wheel driveLS we test drove. Ouch! Add $770 for automatic. Subaru is
offering heftyrebates to help sell cars, understandable considering the subcompact wagon isroughly the same price as your typical full-size family sedan.
