There are still a few hidden gems hiding out in Japan and for those with a keen eye, you can find some incredible performance bargains out there without having to spend $20K+! Perhaps no finer example can be found than this 1995 Legacy wagon. Always surefooted with the help of its symmetrical AWD, this refined estate secretly houses a fire-breathing bi-turbo four-cylinder under the hood. Finished in a Light Silver Metallic (406,) the body is in good shape other than some minor dings, scuffs, and chips. Offered with a mere 38K verified miles this understated sleeper of a five-seat hauler is fresh off service, is legally imported, and ready to roll!
The interior is far above average and it's clear this Legacy GT was cared for back in Japan. The factory mats and owner's manuals are even included in the sale. Starting upfront, the dash is in good nick and lacks any major imperfections such as cracks or distortion. Unlike many cars of the time, the material is soft to the touch and feels like a premium choice. The digital climate system sits front and center and is both easy to use and intuitive. Below it is the factory audio which works as well and sounds decent for its age. The driver receives a tilt column along with door controls for the power windows, mirrors, and locks. The power-folding function is no longer working fully, but after 25 years of use frankly, it's to be expected. The seats look remarkable and are upholstered in a gray cloth accented with blue and red. They are wonderfully supportive and do great on long trips lacking any rips, stains, or tears and match the door cards to tie the interior together. Said door cards look great and the headliner is in equally good shape. Privacy tint helps keep cabin temps down and also shields the harmful rays of the sun from damaging the interior plastics.
The drivetrain is rugged, dependable, and can be used year-round. The EJ20H may only displace 2.0L but packs a mighty punch. Thanks to a pair of snails, this turbocharged engine can deliver performance when you need it yet still maintain a civil disposition when you're not standing on the right pedal. The EJ benefits from an oil and filter service and starts up quickly with the twist of the key. The ever-present Subaru burble can be heard and the four-banger is mated to an automatic gearbox. This unit shifts as it should, and is geared well for highway use. The OEM suspension still feels compliant and the wagon brakes pretty well for its size. The silver alloys are wrapped in all-season rubber and match the overall demeanor of the Subaru.
