What Our Members Are Saying about the Seat Room and Comfort of the 2006 Subaru Outback

2006 Subaru Outback Seat Room and Comfort: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2007 4dr Wagon 175-horsepower 2.5L H4
4-speed shiftable automatic AWD
I was amazed at how small the back seat is in this car. Really no bigger than a compact sedan, eg Civic or Corolla. I can't fit my 3 kids (in car seats) back there, and feel bad when co-workers pile in to go to lunch. Surprisingly small for a vehicle this size, and marketed as a "family car." If you plan to put adults or 3 kids back there regularly, look at the '10 or newer (or at something else -- the rear seat in my co-worker's Accord is far bigger and more comfortable). see full Subaru Outback review

Leg and head room lacking for over 6 footers. see full Subaru Outback review

2006 4dr Wagon 175-horsepower 2.5L H4
4-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Too short! I am 6ft tall and the front passenger seat leaves me feeling very cramped. Drivers position is better. Seats also too narrow. Maybe plenty of room for skinny folks, but not for us folks that are large boned :-) see full Subaru Outback review
2005 4dr Wagon 168-horsepower 2.5L H4
4-speed shiftable automatic AWD
very tight and narrow rear seat room. feels much bumpier in the rear seat than the front seat. see full Subaru Outback review
2005 4dr Wagon 168-horsepower 2.5L H4
5-speed manual AWD
The Outback is much smaller (but not cheaper) than the XC70. see full Subaru Outback review

What Our Members Are Saying about the Powertrain of the 2006 Subaru Outback

2006 Subaru Outback Powertrain: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2007 4dr Wagon turbocharged 243hp 2.5L H4
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
The O7 XT is equiped with a turbo charger,the engine response is smooth. The engine has more than enough power for the size of the car. Compared to an Audi A4 or an Audi Allroad the power is greater than or equal to those cars. see full Subaru Outback review
2007 4dr Wagon 175-horsepower 2.5L H4
4-speed shiftable automatic AWD
All wheel drive and ground clearance are nice to have for bad weather or trying to get to a remote location. You wouldn't confuse it for a sports car, but it gets up and down the canyon very nicely, too. see full Subaru Outback review

2005 4dr Wagon 250-horsepower 3.0L H6
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
3-litre 6-cylinder engine provides ample performance in all conditions, is unbelievably smooth and quite (unlike a 2.5L 4-cylinder). Best Subaru mill in ages. Sealed-for-life timing chain means no expensive T-belt swap job every 60-100 kmiles. see full Subaru Outback review
