The Japanese automaker has decided to take the wraps off a new version – the X-Break – of its aging Exiga Crossover7 that has been out and about for quite some time in its home market.
The Exiga is not on sale in many markets – it’s a large crossover-like wagon with a rugged design and some outdated, but Subaru-fashionable styling. Its first appearance was in concept form during the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show, so it’s been in the wild in Japan for some time, with its platform taking cues from both the Legacy and the previous generation Impreza. While it may be seen as a local alternative to large European models such as the Audi A6 allroad or the Mercedes-Benz E-Class All Terrain, the Exiga is actually a seven-people carrier, albeit in a 4,74 meters compact package.
The X-break special edition features a bright yellow trim, seen on both the exterior and interior. There are also special 17 inch alloys, and inside the seats of the X-Break have a mix of fabric and synthetic leather that’s water and dust-resistant. There are also durable floor mats and a tray with tall sides for the trunk. The model can be had in five shades – enetian Red, Quartz Blue, Crystal White, Tungsten Metallic and Crystal Black Silica. The Exiga’s heart and soul is a 2.5-liter boxer-four with 171 horsepower sent to all four wheels in Subaru’s symmetrical way via a continuously variable transmission.
