Very expensive.

During Cash for Clunkers Subarus had limited incentives compared to other vehicles normally selling at a higher price point and with more content.
20074dr Wagon 245-horsepower 3.0L H6
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Very high resale values and popularity make the car very popular for resales. Unfortunately the vehicle has a higher sticker price. This is easily offset in the long run on reliability.
20074dr Sedan 245-horsepower 3.0L H6
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
$33,000 starting price. For what amounts to a nice station wagon.
20054dr Wagon turbocharged 250hp 2.5L H4
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Damn, it was expensive (one year old and cost $24K, original price something like $32.5K) but you get what you pay for I think.

Price was high, dealer did not offer much of a discount or was willing to work with me on my trade-in
20114dr SUV 269-horsepower 3.5L V6

A base RAV4 is quite inexpensive. Fully optioned, the price can balloon by a third.

No incentives
