This Diesel Subaru Sounds Insanely Badass With A Full Exhaust System

According to PowerTrend, this diesel Subaru is powered by a 2.0-liter DOHC horizontally opposed flat-four common-rail diesel putting out 148 horses and 258 pound-feet of torque. (VW’s 2.0-liter turbodiesel, coming later this year, provides 140 horsepower and 235 pound-feet.)

Its acceleration won’t break any records, but its excellent torque, available at a measly 1800 rpm, ensures that this car effortlessly goes up grades in fifth gear and has no trouble merging at freeway speeds. The boxer layout provides the same advantages as in Subaru’s gas-powered offerings: lower center of gravity, reduced vibration, lighter weight.
