Post AutoWeek report on the new H6 Outback

The latest AutoWeek has a rather mildly damning report on the H6 Outback. Any reports of further applications were speculative, but AW didn't think that the Legacy GT would get the six, but probably the blown four that the Impreza will receive.

The H6 did take some two seconds off the 0-60 time for the Outback, even though the 212HP powerplant is 100 lbs heavier.

And the price...$31K for the tarted up Outback!! Not to sound like a non-loyalist, but at $31-32K, I start thinking about saving more pennies and waiting for an S4 Avant...

The turbo report, however speculative, is encouraging, though. That would be pretty cool, since the turbo should be more tweakable than an N/A H6.

At any rate, the overall tone of the report seemed to be "Nice, but too expensive for a Subaru." This was the same stuff that the SVX had to deal with (never mind that autobox only business, which is why I didn't buy one).

That's the first time I heard that the GT may get the 2.0 turbo. Now that would be nice indeed

I'm afraid to say, but to the average US automobile consumer( not us), a Subaru, no matter how great it is, is still a Subaru. It's unfortunate but that's the way things go.

FWIW, the last time I talked to one of SOA's sales reps at the local dealer, he said many at "corporate" were very hesitant on releasing another Subaru whose price "started with a 3" Still, the average Outback is still very well priced for what you get IMHO.

Thanks for the info
