Subaru Liberty 1989-06 from our 2020 Japanese Classic & Performance Car Guide

Libertys don’t present themselves as performance cars and that’s probably how a lot of owners like it.

The RS Turbo arrived in Australia 30 years ago and while survivors are scarce they aren’t expensive. Around half of the available B4s are automatic but you need to buy a manual to get the full 190kW of available power. Excellent cars cost around $8000.

| Buyers' Guide: Subaru Liberty RS/B4 Turbo

That money will also buy a 2004-06 GT Turbo (look for the bonnet intake) or 3.0R Spec B. All of these have All-Wheel Drive however only the RS Turbo was seriously campaigned in dirt road competition.

Lots of 4WD Liberty sedans and wagons with 2.0 or 2.5-litre non-turbo motors

keep appearing at less than $3000 and provide durable basic transport.
