I've been waiting to pick up my Maverick so I could snap a side-by-side with this Subaru Brat in my neighborhood, and caught a quick one on my way to work earlier this week, the day after taking delivery! Hope to get there again to snap a few more from different angles, but here's the one for now!

So the Brat is technically a 4 seater, and they both have a lil bed. Really they are basically the same thing.

I had a BRAT for about 5-6 years as the 'fun winter car'... It was a hoot to drive in the snow, but sooo noisy, rattly and could barely do 65mph. It's amazing what we used to put up with and how far 'inexpensive' new cars/trucks have advanced.

Sure, if you think 30years, two doors, seats in the cabin vs in the bed, and decent power don't make a difference. :) :)

The Brat was really a two seat tiny truck with two seats in the bed. The Baja was basically a chopped station wagon, much closer to the new Santa Cruz in idea, but both cars were not very capable as trucks.

I looked and looked and looked for a clean Baja Turbo with manual for a decent price. Saw the Maverick and ordered it.

With today's sky-high used car prices the Mav was probably cheaper. :LOL:

The Brat's bed seats were Sub's answer to the tariffs on imported trucks. With those seats it was eligible for the cheaper car tariff.

Dead on correct about the tariff. I had a Brat while living in Petersurg and Fairbanks, and just loved the thing. The Baja came out decades later, and for a while I really really thought about it...but by then I had my sights set on a future hybrid. I've driven both, and yeah, I would call the Baja a Brat Rev 2. Fun car.

The same house had a Baja in the driveway! I might have to knock on the door and introduce myself...

I read the headline, clicked the link to this thread and was expecting a Ford Maverick and a bratwurst. Then I felt stupid. Duh, Subaru!
