Default Difference between a normal Legacy and an SUS?

Besides the higher suspension springs, bigger 15/16 inch tires, the two tone paint/"vinyl", and mud flaps, is there anything else that differentiates a SUS from a normal Legacy?

Outback front bumper
Outback rear bumper.

The Legacy "SUS" was only sold between 1997 and 1999, after that the newer models became known as the "Outback sedan". In addition to the other differences already posted, the SUS was only offered with an Automatic with the 2.5 Litre motor, had larger than stock Anti-sway bars, and came with 205/70R15 sized tyres.

there are actually a few SUS out there that came stock with 5 spds, but they are very rare. i've seen maybe 2 of them in person? out of a total of maybe 10 SUS that i've seen in person?
