Lightbulb Domingo (1983 - )





Released on October 3, 1983, the Subaru Domingo was developed as a new category of multipurpose 1-liter wagon endowed with the usability and economy not available in existing small one-box cars, the high performance and seven-person capacity not provided by light cab wagons, and front turning opposite-facing seats, which was a first in Japan at the time.




The new design EF10 engine was a 997 cc in-line three-cylinder four-cycle OHC. Light and compact, this high-performance engine struck a balance between excellent fuel economy, flexible running characteristics and outstanding quietness. The engine was mounted in the rear, and there were two variations on the drive system, i.e. RR and part-time 4WD. Suspension was the MacPherson strut independent suspension (coil spring) on the front, while semi-trailing arm independent suspension (coil spring) 4WD independent suspension was adopted on the rear, thereby giving operating stability with a good balance between linearity, stability and running performance on rough roads, etc. Driving stability was further enhanced through the adoption of 12 inch radial tires (excluding 2WD CF). In particular, the 4WD model adopted all-season tires, guaranteeing sufficient performance on snowy roads and in other poor conditions. At the time of release, 2WD models comprised the CF, CS, CS-S and CS-S with sunroof, while 4WD models comprised the GF, GS, GS-S and GS-S with sunroof.

Incidentally, the name Domingo is derived from the Spanish word for “Sunday,” and it was chosen in the hope that people could “get a Sunday feeling any time” when they drove the car.








A model mounted with the newly developed 1.2 liter engine was added to the Domingo lineup in June 1986. The 1.2 liter engine, for use in 4WD models, was graded into three classes, i.e. GS, GS-S and GS-S with sunroof and Sun-sun window. The 1.0 liter engine, for use in 2WD models, was graded into four classes, i.e. CF, CS, CS-S and CS-S with sunroof and sun-sun window. Thus the variety of models was further enhanced. In addition, the “Sun-sun window” model, which added glass areas to both sides of the large-size sunroof, was adopted at this time too, giving a sense of openness. Moreover, the full-time 4WD model GX went on sale in August this year. Through combining Subaru’s unique free-running full-time 4WD system into the 1.2 liter OHC engine, the GX enabled simpler and safer 4WD driving. In October 1992, a model equipped with twin air conditioner and cassette stereo was added and high-mount stop lamps were added to all models.
