The Baja is a cross over vehicle between a pick up and a sedan. It has the ability to carry four passengers, but it also has the unique Switchback system. This allows the flatbed of the Baja to extend into the cabin, making more room. It is powered by a 165 hp 2.5-liter horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine or a turbocharged model of the same engine creating 210 hp. It is controlled by a five-speed manual transmission or four-speed automatic and comes standard with all-wheel drive. For 2005, the Subaru Baja gets minimal changes.
