In the fall of 2002, the Subaru Sambar microvan received its first major changes. The design of the front end has been updated - it features larger headlights with multi-reflector reflector, the Subaru brand name with the image of six stars has returned to the front end. The color assortment has been completely updated, the viewing angle of the devices has been improved. The size of the glass on the tailgate has increased, and glue is used instead of the rubber seal. The lineup of the commercial Sambar Van (TV) has been significantly simplified, the supercharger engine has been canceled and now the van is offered only with an atmospheric unit.
The internal changes affected the commercial model to a lesser extent - the main issue here was the affordable price. The cheapest Sambar Van (2- and 4-seater), as usual, have a simple interior with primitive seat upholstery and unpretentious interior trim, a rigid folding bench is installed in the back, air conditioning is considered an option. A version of the Transporter for the transport of disabled people has appeared in the lineup. The Dias version was canceled, but a new VC plus package was proposed, which has a full set of equipment: air conditioning, remote key, radio and power accessories; the front seats are the same as those of the "Diaz", the rear can be fitted with separate seats with an armrest. The front panel of the Sambar looks very functional - it has trays for storage, a place at the top is reserved for a 2DIN audio device, a quite informative "tidy" is installed, and in cars with an "automatic" gearbox lever is conveniently located next to the steering wheel. Improvements for September 2004 include a door lock control module in the center console. Added two new body colors: Astral Blue Opal and Light Purple Opal.

Subaru Sambar of the sixth generation in the modification of a van (Van) since September 2002 has been equipped with one unit - a 4-cylinder gasoline engine of the EN07 SOHC series, which has a working volume of 658 cubic meters. see and a maximum power of 48 hp. Unlike three-cylinder units in the overwhelming majority of kei-cars from other companies, in-line Subar "four" is characterized by more balanced operation and low vibration. Transmission - 3-speed automatic or 5-speed manual. Rear or full drive. Fuel consumption is about 6-6.5 liters of gasoline per 100 km. The EN07 engine is considered quite reliable, has a simple design and is capable of moving at least 200 thousand km without problems. As before, access to the unit is through the cover, which also serves as the rear bumper. For more serious work, it is necessary to remove the service hatch in the boot floor.

Subaru Sambar is built on a frame, its chassis includes both independent suspensions - front MacPherson and rear on oblique arms. Brakes - front ventilated disc, rear drum. The steering has a rack and pinion mechanism with an amplifier. Body dimensions: length 3395 mm, width 1475 and height 1905 mm. With a wheelbase of only 1,885 mm and a turning radius of 3.9 meters, not every car can boast of such agility. The ground clearance is almost 18 cm, but in this generation of Sambar, the front overhang has increased and on large bumps there is a chance of catching the bumper. The Sambar Van is great for commercial use. With the rear seats fully folded down, there is a huge, flat luggage space with a length and width of more than 1.8 and 1.2 meters, respectively. The carrying capacity of the van, depending on the number of passengers, is 200-350 kg.

After restyling, all Sambar Van vans are standardly equipped with a driver's airbag, front belts with load limiters, three-point belts in the rear seats, options include an anti-lock braking system and a passenger airbag. When developing the sixth generation Subaru Sambar, the company's engineers redesigned the traditional Cabover body structure by slightly lengthening its front end while increasing the front safety zone, and side impact protection was also strengthened.

At first glance, the Subaru Sambar looks like a typical Kei-class micro van, but it has its own unique features (take at least the rear-engined layout). The car is interesting for its strong chassis and body, 4-cylinder engine, spaciousness, simplicity of design. Cons - a small engine resource, weak "aspirated", small wheels, difficulties with spare parts.
