Subaru has today confirmed that its Exiga All-Wheel Drive wagon will join its Australian line-up later this year.

Unveiling a Japanese domestic-specification Exiga at the Melbourne International Motor Show, Subaru Managing Director, Nick Senior, said the six-seater family wagon will go on sale around November.

It will feature an automatic transmission as standard and be powered by a normally aspirated four cylinder 2.5 litre horizontally-opposed Boxer engine.

The entry level Exiga will include a DVD entertainment system as standard for second and third row seats. There is also a spacious cabin with sweeping dashboard, individual second row seats and a stow-away third row bench seat.

“This will be very much a next generation Subaru vehicle and will, of course, focus on the safety, engineering integrity, durability and innovation for which we are renowned,” Subaru Managing Director, Nick Senior, said.

He also confirmed the Exiga will feature some yet-to-be revealed innovative technology.

Mr Senior said the Japanese domestic specification model displayed at the Melbourne Show varies from the Australian versions, but has the same exterior shape. It looks interesting; perhaps a little more dynamic in the flesh than is evident in these photos.

Australia will be the first export market for the Exiga, while pricing will be announced at the November launch.
