  • Equipped as standard with Variable Torque Distribution (VTD) version of Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive with Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC).

New for 2012

  • Redesigned head restraints.

Key Facts

  • 7-passenger model.
  • Premium, Limited and Touring trim lines, with navigation, moonroof and rear seat entertainment option packages for the upper two grades (moonroof standard on Touring).
  • Heated seats standard for all models.

  • Variable Torque Distribution (VTD) version of Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive combined with Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC) stability system and 4-wheel traction control system (TCS).
