2006 Subaru Baja Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 4 reviews
This is the last year for this car-truck-tiny pickup, so there are few changes to the 2006 Subaru Baja. Meant for those wanting the cargo versatility of a truck, yet with car-like handling, a compact size, and better fuel economy, the Baja is an all-wheel drive vehicle that fits four passengers and features a 3.5-foot open cargo bed that can be extended to five feet once the rear seats and a removable divider are folded down.
New this year are some more standard features, such as keyless entry and an anti-theft system. The 2006 Baja comes in Sport and Turbo trims, both with a 2.5-liter, flat-4 engine. The Sport hits 165-hp, while the much faster and more enjoyable Turbo reaches 210-hp. All come standard with fog lights, a sunroof, power windows and locks, ABS brakes, dual front airbags (no side airbags), roof rails, and cargo bed tie-downs. The Turbo can have options such as power seats and leather upholstery. A hard cover for the open bed and roof lights for off-roading are also extras, as is an extension for the tailgate, to expand cargo capacity.
Like the Outback, the 2006 Baja is a capable performer on rough roads, and its open bed lends it a rugged, outdoorsy, active feel. Owners feel the Sport is underpowered, especially if you're going to do any truck-like hauling, but the Turbo is fast and fun. AWD performance is stellar, and the handling is easy and smooth. Improved fuel economy, more interior legroom, and a bigger cargo bed were the major complaints.
