I saw a very small Subaru on the highway the other day and can't remember what the model was. It was the size of a Festiva [maybe even smaller] but was not a hatchback. I would guess it was from the early 90's or so.

Anyone know what it was?

It looked like it would get killer gas mileage!

the only thing remotely close is a justy - so i would think that has to be it. although those are hatchbacks - maybe you just didn't notice?

Justies were 3 doors and 5 doors, about the same size, but never a notchback. Tercels (toyo) were notchbacks.

No such thing- there were Loyale sedans and Loyale wagons, and that was it. There were only a few options and no "base" or upscale models, to my knowlege.

You can register them in Montana as an ATV (which are road legal here).

Hi guys,

Thanks for the replies. This had me baffled for a while, but after asking the same question on the NASIOC forum, I realized it must not have been a Subaru. Check the thread out HERE. After all of the guesses, it helped me narrow it down.

Anyway, this was the car in question:

Most if not all of them were. They were only out for a couple of years in the mid-'90s, and they didn't sell too well (how many people do you know that want to buy a two-door sporty SUV with a removable roof and a trunk?) They were based on the Vitara/Tracker/Sidekick platform. I'd like to own one...someday...it'd look good next to my Metro convertible :)

But I like butt-ugly and I don't mind driving chick cars (hence a yellow New Beetle and a yellow Geo Metro ragtop).

I want a Yugo Cabrio someday too.


(Also...if I'm remembering correctly, most X-90s came in purple, royal blue, and pastel metallic paints.)
