SUBARU AUSTRALIA has confirmed that the Exiga wagon is on track for a November launch. It will be marketed not as a stand-alone model, but as an addition to the Liberty range.

Dubbed "Liberty Exiga", the big wagon will come with six seats over three rows and be powered by a naturally-aspirated variant of Subaru's familiar 2.5 litre boxer four.

The Exiga, built upon the same platform that underpins the new Legacy/Liberty, is currently only sold in Japan, where it's available as a seven-seater.

Australia will be the first export market for the car, but due to local safety concerns and the unavailability of a three-point seatbelt in the centre row's middle seat, the centre lap belt that's fitted to Japanese Exigas will be deleted.

The Impreza's 2.5 litre EJ25 flat four will be the only engine option from launch, paired to a CVT automatic gearbox and all-wheel-drive system.

A manual transmission won't be offered, neither are there immediate plans to equip Australian Liberty Exiga's with the 165kW 2.0 litre EJ20 turbo that's available in Japan.

Cabin fit-out will be geared towards large families. To keep the tribe entertained, the base model Liberty Exiga will ship with a DVD player as standard.

A panoramic sunroof is a likely option, as are seatback-mounted stowable tray tables.

The 2010 Subaru Liberty Exiga will go on sale in Australia in November, with pricing and specification details to be announced closer to the launch.
