The name “Subaru” is Japanese for the Pleiades which are the six stars in the Taurus constellation. The six stars of the Subaru logo represent the six companies which make up Fuji Industries. The Subaru van has the same chassis and engine as the Subaru 360 sedan. This vehicle is a true “mini” van. The engine is 356cc because in Japan there is a substantial tax break for having an engine size less than 360cc.
