e to introduce a for '92. The truth. Controlled Variable Transmission which provides the power of a 5-speed with the convenience of an automatic.

And priced around $25,500*; the SVX has the built-in reliability and durability all Subaru models are known for. (The only reason we didn't quote several respected automotive sources about how exceptional a machine the SVX is, is simply because the car hadn't been introduced when this ad was written.) Well, that covers about everything. And we'd just like to say and scream and shout again That a car is nothing more than a machine. And may the best machine win. Subaru. What to drive.
