In the US, we do use the "4-Wheel-Drive Wagon" name for the pre-1980 models. So using that wouldn't be unusual.

I found one for the "Touring Wagon". It does look like it has a slightly raised roof.

There are actually plenty of Australian brochures available online:

Here's one from 1980: https://ebay.us/9xT0yB

I saw that, most of the time we're just looking for the CHMSL, which for some reason is hard to spot on those Subarus. Something about the darkness of the window tint seems to obscure them. And they don't pop up like other brands.

I guess with the US Subarus, it's easier to locate brochures and sales materials than Australian ones, which would back up what name to use.

I know the next generation Touring Wagon has the raised roof, was it like that for this generation?

Subaru did similar things in the US. Which is why we have a whole variety of models during that period.


I just found out about that. But it doesn't answer my question. Also, are you aware of the Subaru logo changing in 1986 from a black background to a clear background?

At the moment, the Australian 1979-1984 Subaru [AM] wagons are listed as "L-Series" on the site. However, at the time, this name wasn't used at all in any advertising material nor on the vehicles themselves. It didn't really appear until 1985, and even then, it was only used on some printed material to refer to both the sedan and wagon, (sort of an umbrella term so to speak).

When introduced in Nov 1979, the name for the wagon was originally the "Town & Country" but this name didn't stick for long, being dropped sometime in 1980. The sedan was always called the Leone.

After 1980, it was just called the "4WD Station Wagon". However, from 1982 onwards, there were 2 trim levels offered - a base "4WD Station Wagon" and an upscale "4WD Touring Wagon". 4WD was always part of the name because a 2WD version was not offered.

I'm undecided on how they should be listed on this site. Part of me wants to just leave it as is, for simplicity sake. But using the "4WD Station Wagon" name would be more accurate. Thoughts?
