The third-generation Subaru Sambar was released in 1999 and met the domestic Japanese small car standards introduced in 1998. Over the years, the Sambar has been repeatedly modernized and has gone through a whole series of changes, including two restyling in 2002 and 2005. It is worth noting that since 2009, Subaru has stopped producing the passenger Dias Wagon, now it is an OEM version from Daihatsu. Only vans (Van) and trucks (Truck) of our own design remained in the model range. Another facelift of the model was carried out. The Sambar Van has redesigned the front panel and front bumper. The dashboard received larger badges. The Dias and Transporter vans are once again equipped with a turbocharged SOHC engine. Improved stability and controllability indicators. Vans based on the original Sambar were produced until March 2012.

The version of the WR Blue Limited, which rolled off the assembly line in 2011 in honor of the 50th anniversary of this car, became the "swan song" for Sambar. The van was offered with a complete set, in an exclusive blue body, with transparent repeaters, chrome muffler, black seats with yellow stitching. After an agreement with Toyota on OEM deliveries of the development of subsidiary Daihatsu, the fate of the Sambar was a foregone conclusion - it was soon discontinued, despite the disappointment of fans of this legendary model. The car attracts tuning enthusiasts. An interesting fact: the MODEST studio in Kanagawa offers for owners of second-hand Sambars a "custom package" in the design of the UAZ-452, while Sambar Van copies our "Loaf" in great detail, even the tailgate is visually as if capable of opening wide open. Subaru Sambar Van 2009-2012 is equipped with a 4-cylinder petrol unit. In contrast to the three-cylinder unit, as in the vast majority of kei-cars, the inline-four is characterized by more balanced operation and lower vibration.

The carrying capacity of the van, depending on the number of passengers, is 200-350 kg.

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. Unfortunately, the sixth generation Sambar for Subaru became the last own model of the Kei Car class.
