The Subaru XT6, Japan’s market for sports and “sporty” cars is pretty different from other developed markets in the world. What people expect when they buy a sports car is different, and what they consider to be an acceptable compromise will also be different. This can be seen in the Subaru XT6 , a car that was developed with buyers of the Nissan Skyline and Toyota Supra in mind.
The Subaru XT6 was a car of legend, people still remember the car, and there are many fans who would love to see the car again. But you may be asking yourself, what is the Subaru XT6? And why should I care about it?
This car still exists even though it has been tried to be destroyed for 30 years!
The Story Behind The Subaru XT6: A Car Like No Other
The Subaru XT6 was created from a company that, when it originally came to the United States, was primarily known as a maker of cheap and quirky little hatchbacks with two-stroke engines.
Subaru had been quite successful at building and marketing small all-wheel drive vehicles in the U.S., but by the early 1980s, the company needed to build a car that better fit what American buyers were looking for in family cars: more luxury, more size, two doors and a backseat.
To do this, Subaru decided to stop trying to sell you a $1 compact car with four-wheel drive.
Instead, they built a full-size sedan with rear-wheel drive and front disc brakes.
It had a 2.7 L four-cylinder engine that made 145 hp (108 kW), and while it wasn’t very powerful, it did have some advanced features like fuel injection and cylinder heads that could be removed without special tools.
The XT6 is an accomplished car meant to compete against much bigger models like Mercedes Benz or BMW due to its amazing handling capabilities and superior ride quality despite being such a long sedan.
