Subaru Exiga GT 2.0 Review

Subaru Exiga GT 2.0
At first glance, some may easily take Subaru Exiga for Outback, which extend to place there seven passengers.Undoubtedly, this conservative universal machines have a lot in common with models Forester, Impreza and Legacy, as indeed, and the Outback - that is, with almost all neighbours on the line Subaru. But in fact this model roots go much deeper.

Moreover, Subaru Exiga GT, probably, ideally passes for our difficult time, as is of direct relevance to the recent appreciation of fuel worldwide. If you think that looks like a cross-breed Exiga Forester, Impreza, Legacy and Outback, then you’re not mistaken.Long before the minivan-heavyweights such as the Chrysler Voyager and Renault Espace, fired this revolution in the automobile, there was a car Lancia Megagamma, Italdesign studio set up under the leadership of the legendary Italian designer Dzhordzhetto Dzhudzharo. It was he, one of the most famous designers in the world, possessing a truly revolutionary thinking on the part of the design of vehicles, even 30 years ago proposed a minivan design (that was seen as a radical concept car), equipped with 4 - oppozitnym cylinder engine.

But because further 5 - local concept prototype stage in a deal not gone Lancia, Subaru Exiga GT became the first car-style minivan with oppozitnym engine, and it is - an explicit reference to the idea Dzhudzharo. The idea was that good. And here Exiga before us, and a suitable time, it may be late in the Subaru for several years. They create such a car worth more five years ago.

The preponderance of functionality over style. In Exiga profile looks very mediocre. Subaru Exiga not like other minivan. Exiga, providing a mixture of delight Japanese consciousness and activism, a little wider, longer and higher than the Outback. Additional 11.5 cm in height provide a number of passengers third more space above your head. We, the growth of 185 cm, were able to freely usestsya for the third series, which in itself is already revealing. “In truth, - otkrovennichaet chief engineer Hiroya Okumo - we wanted to do more to start rolling back rack, and the roof line - more smooth, that would look more stylish. But it would mean that passengers will be less space over their heads “.

Wheelbase, which at 7.6 cm longer than the base Outback, helped increase the space allotted for the passengers’ feet, while the overall length Exiga while increased by only 1.3 cm compared with universals, built on the base Legacy.
But where were you, Sir Dzhudzharo when Subaru needed your style? Given that Megagamma Exiga and very close to its essence, even one phone call could fix much. Flew with the exterior design in several recent major projects in respect of Exiga it was decided to go on the track protorennoy. The only worthy stylistic decisions in this case are the radiator grill, resembling the wing, a large transparent roof and the impressive side rear door windows that provide excellent visibility.

Otherwise same Exiga looks like a minivan irresolute, high bogie of the distant past. Call it a miracle designer thought you will not. It will take a market segment where the ball will be expected to rule soon Toyota Venza. Nevertheless, Subaru Exiga - is a virtuoso pazzl collected from the newest technologies, which can offer only concern Subaru at the moment. As a small producer on their volumes, Subaru simply obliged to offer the most complex and useful devices and automotive technology. So that Subaru, there was simply no choice - in this model is everything.

The front part Exiga, until the middle rack, built on a platform Forester, but the rear part - unique because this time the problem was solved by placing third row of seats. Dvuhrychazhnaya rear suspension has been borrowed from the Impreza, but the springs, shock absorbers and sleeves specially selected in such a way as to reduce vibration and noise at the same time improve the running characteristics. At his older brother on the line, Subaru Forester, Exiga GT borrow and 2 - liter turbocharged 4 - oppozitny cylinder engine, although in this case here have other turbochargers, to get more traction on low turnover. And I think that here from Legacy? Legacy donated 5 new draft - stepped automaton with SI-Drive system and the braking system as well as the overall stylistic decision front.

Theoretically, Exiga is a fairly large semimestny car capable of quite provornoe movement. And if appearance did not cause us nothing but blatant yawn, the only one pushing for a special button engine starting vzbodrilo us not to joke. Dvuhlitrovy Layout life by issuing a typical uncertainty metallic sound, we have chosen D on automatic mode and went on the road. By issuing a 225 hp 5 600, with turnover per minute and 326 Nm torque at 4 400 rpm., Exiga clearly not Dawdler.
