Subaru WRX STi 2.5i Manual – ‘warp drive – but not as we know it’

I’m afraid this month I have been transformed into a ‘yobbo’ because I currently have the wonderful Subaru WRX STi on review. Yes, it may look like it’s had a few additional extras fitted at your local Halfords store, but be aware - this WRX is not to be messed with in any shape or form. So, forget Star...

Subaru BRZ 2.0i SE Lux Auto – the nimble little minx

If you talk to anyone about buying a Subaru – they will automatically think you are a ‘yobbo’ and cast you aside thinking the only possible reason you had for buying one in the first place - was because you wanted to annoy every other road user. And I have to admit - in a way, they do have...

Subaru XV 2.0D SE Manual Review

The Subaru XV 2.0D SE Manual is a handsome looking SUV which has enough of Subaru’s design language behind it to make it different and interesting whilst still providing a link to the rest of the Subaru range. Indeed, it's clear association with the Forester provides a strong clue as to the XV’s capabilities on and off-road along with...

Subaru is making changed to their BRZ sports coupe for the 2017 model that might be substantive enough to convince current owners to upgrade - or pull buyers on the fence into the fold.

Australia to receive STI-enhanced Subaru Forester

In case you missed our review last month, we're pretty big fans of the Subaru Forester. We loved its “go anywhere” toughness and dependability, refined drivetrain and the fact that it still excelled as being a supremely comfortable family SUV day-to-day. Locally in Australia, the hottest Forester you can currently buy is the 177kW (237hp) 2.0XT, though that is...

2016 Subaru Forester 2.5i-S EyeSight Review

For those of us who have reached middle age, you could say there's probably one thing you hate being reminded of the most. You're getting old. We already have things which remind us about this on a daily basis. Perhaps a new wrinkle that wasn't there yesterday, hair which isn't quite as thick as it used to be, or even...

Say ‘Hello’ to Subaru’s stiffer, safer, all-new Impreza

Subaru have used this year's New York motor show to unveil the brand new 2017 version of their Impreza sedan, and while it may not look all that different from the one it replaces, there are some new changes laying under the skin. Visually, the new Impreza features some new sculptured creases down the side, along with squintier looking headlights...

Subaru might be working on a mid-engined sports coupe

A source close to Subaru has let slip to Car and Driver that the company has been testing a prototype mid-engined hybrid powertrain underneath a BRZ at its proving grounds in Japan, which might eventually end up in a hybrid sports coupe that could give Subaru a high-performance halo model in the coming years."Whether the end result will be...

Subaru Forester gets a facelift

Now more than ever, it is important that automotive manufacturers ensure their vehicles feature the latest technological advancements, engineering and up-to-the-minute styling. Often a cheap way to do this is to facelift an existing model mid-cycle - a bit of botox to help the ageing looks, some added equipment and features for added freshness, perhaps some subtle engineering updates...
