Classic Car

The chiselled mid-1980s saloons continued expanded on Subaru’s policy for sensible quirkiness, but the XT was something else entirely. The wedge-shaped two-door added turbo shove for its thrumming flat-four, and was certainly quick enough with 136bhp on tap. But that styling really was too much for most buyers to stomach, and it sold slowly. But for those who could live with the looks and the wacky interior, the XT rewarded with great build quality and peerless reliability. It rusted, but nowhere near as badly as its ancestors, and now has bags of ‘80s retro appeal.
