1996 Subaru SVX

The Giugiaro-designed SVX, short for “Subaru Vehicle X,” replaced the aging and angular XT Coupe and gave Subaru buyers a chance to own a true concept car. Introduced at the 1989 Tokyo Auto Show, the SVX’s slippery lines and “aircraft-inspired glass-to-glass canopy” were striking, mirroring designs kept mostly to Italian exotics. The unconventional window-within-a-window was carried over from the concept car, though many owners were puzzled as to what purpose it truly served. At the time, the EG33 3.3-liter boxer V6 was the largest Subaru motor to date, bringing with it a potent 231hp. Being a Subaru, the SVX was of course all-wheel-drive. With looks that stood out and power to run with top end models from many competitors, the SVX was an anomaly among an otherwise practical fleet from Subaru.
