The R2's exterior reflects influence from Andreas Zapatinas, who worked at Alfa Romeo before moving to Subaru. The R2 is the first production Subaru to sport a new family look, including the aviation-inspired "spread wings grille" that is also used by Tribeca and Impreza.
The R2's exterior dimensions are largely similar to its predecessor, the Subaru Pleo, but unlike the squarish Pleo, the R2 is deliberately rounded, less space efficient form.
Three variations of the 4-cylinder, 658 cc engine are available:
The two lower engine options are available with either a manual transmission or a CVT. The supercharged engine is coupled to a sportshift version of the CVT ("7 speed iCVT"). Both front wheel drive and all wheel drive are available.
Initially, the R2 was available in 11 colors and 3 trim levels (one for each engine variation).
On January 4, 2005, the Subaru R1 was introduced, a 2-door version of the R2 with a shorter body and wheelbase.
The Subaru R2 is also a playable secret car in Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune.
The R2 was discontinued in March 2010.
