Subaru's Tokyo presence wouldn't be complete without a few limited edition models that leave you scratching your head while shaking it simultaneously. The first of which is the Legacy Outback Urban "selection," which strikes us as an oxymoronic offering considering the Outback's entirely un-urban pretenses.

Essentially the "Urban" is your standard Legacy with a limited edition red hue, silver side mirrors and roof rails, along with leather and Alcantara-trimmed seats. What's been done to make it more suitable for mid-town motoring escapes us, but so does the concept behind it. Sales are expected to begin in Japan sometime next year.

      It would make a whole lot more sense to use the less rugged Legacy 2.5GT or 3.0R for "Urban Selection" duty. An "Outback Urban Selection" is akin to a "Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Urban Edition."

        which, you know, they have. That blinged out 4-dr Wrangler *shiver*.

      There are a lot of people who don't care for the "Eddie Bauer" look with two tone body paint jobs and bulky plastic cladding. I guess Subaru assumes that sleek and monocromatic is "urban".

      I'm REALLY hoping that the next gen legacy/outback has a 6 speed manual in it, as well as a diesel option (not just with CVT)

      I've liked my 2006 outback so far, but it definitely leaves me reaching for another gear on the highway.

      ...this coming from a lifer chrysler family (not saying much I know, but they could get back in the game with a diesel caliber, or an AWD avenger wagon that loses the lame back end)

        They don't even offer a manual Legacy wagon in the US anymore so I don't see it happening.

        CVT here we come. Subaru's here I go.
