In an effor to expand its European offerings and meet tighter emissions requirements, Subaru has made a deal with Toyota to re-badge as many as 10,000 small cars. Partly owned by Toyota, Subaru will sell slightly modified Daihatsu (a Toyota subsidiary) Sirions (also known as the Daihatsu Boon in Japan and the Toyota Passo) in Europe. The small Subes could be on sale as early as later this year. No word yet on what the new variant will be called and we aren't holding our breath for a high-horsepower rally version any time soon.

      Hmmm
      I think its a damn shame that the little cum box GEO METRO is masquerading as the venerable Subbie Justy in other countries.

      If the Subbie-philes had their say.. theyd yank this load and toss it into the dumpster where it belongs. I dont think it has any business being with the usual suspects of SUBBIE.

      Awful little cumbox.

      Not the first time Subaru has rebadged in Europe.

      One of the things I noticed on a trip to Switzerland last winter was a lot of older AWD Subaru Justys, which we in the US knew as the Geo Metro/Suzuki Swift.
