Legacy and Outback Lineup Broadened for 2006





Enhancements for the 2006 Legacy and Outback include added power, increased performance, reduced emissions and more feature content. The model line also has been revised.

POWER AND PERFORMANCE: Subaru adds performance to the 2.5-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder Subaru Boxer engines in the Legacy and Outback 2.5 and 2.5i Limited models. They feature the i-Active Valve Lift system, which boosts horsepower from 168 to 175. Torque increases from 166 lb-ft to 169 lb-ft. These revisions help improve vehicle drivability and reduce emissions.

EMISSIONS: Subaru Legacy and Outback become the most powerful Partial Zero Emission Vehicles (PZEV) available for sale in the U.S. market. Unique among most PZEV-compliant engines, the revised 2.5-liter Subaru Boxer engine delivers zero evaporative emissions with no loss in horsepower compared with the standard 2.5-liter engines.

FEATURES: For Legacy: Seventeen-inch wheels are now standard for Legacy 2.5i models, along with an air filtration system and engine immobilizer security feature. New for 2006 are Legacy 2.5i Special Edition Sedan and Wagon models that feature standard, value-priced, eight-way power driver’s seat and power moonroof. Plus, several 2006 Legacy models are available with a new Subaru Navigation System.

For Outback: The line adds an L.L.Bean® Sedan and six-cylinder Outback 3.0R Wagon. Outback 2.5i and 2.5i Limited models have standard 17-inch wheels, air filtration system and engine immobilizer security feature. The Outback 3.0R VDC Limited Wagon adds a standard Subaru Navigation System.
