According to a report from The Oregonian, investigators said an intoxicated man told police he was “showing off” his new 2015 Subaru WRX when he wound up crashed into a nearby house. Police told the outlet that the car went through a yard and hit a power pole before crashing into the house.
What happens when you invite a Subaru to go off-roading in the Badlands with a Jeep group? In the case of Kyle Jarrett Dickinson’s lifted 2005 Impreza 2.5 RS, it holds its own for obvious reasons. I mean, just look at this thing. This is an apocalypse-ready sedan if there ever was one.
As far as crossovers go, the Subaru Forester is some kind of an enigma. Besides a few new safety features here and there, the damn thing has been pretty much unchanged for the last four years, and while its engine is relatively new, it feels like the same Boxer motor Subaru has used since, like, fire was invented.
Did you just buy the all-new Impreza? It’s really nice and impressive, but do you even rugged, bro? I mean how are you going to scale some sick trails, and wear your North Face in a hatchback? Should have waited for the all new 2017 Crosstrek, bro.
It doesn’t look like much, but the Subaru Impreza has one of the strongest fanbases and reputations in the internet car world. Drive one hard and you’ll understand why.
When the heavens open up and bless the earth with a large quantity of snow, you can be dull and whip out a snow plow, or a shovel, or something else that involves minimal fun and just gets it out of the way. Yawn! Here’s a better way to clear that snow.
This Subaru owner thought he was doing everything right. He had a nice all-wheel drive Forester, he was adjusting his tire pressures for better traction and he figured he was as ready for the snow as anyone could be. But the snow had other ideas and sent a van crashing into the side of his car.
As snow falls outside my window, now is a good time to remind you all that there is a right way to drive a Subaru: on the limit at all times, sideways.
Ah, the classic “mid-life” update. The facelift. That magical moment when a manufacturer can take stock of what’s working, what’s not, and makes a few choice changes. For cars that are already good—like the Subaru BRZ—the right improvements could make them great. Very rarely does an updated version of an already…
Driving the low and light Subaru BRZ is truly blissful. Predictable steering, great balance. But for the years the car’s been out, we’ve been hearing the same chief complaint from enthusiasts across the board: where are the birds?
For over a decade now, Subaru WRX and WRX STI drivers have gotten into their cars, glanced at the ceiling, realized it was made entirely of used wet cardboard, and entirely didn’t care because the car went like hell and was stupid levels of fun. Now Subaru’s gone and made the thing even faster, but with more sound…
The world can still be a good place.
The 2017 Subaru Outback 3.6R you see here was shot in early December in Montreal. Notice anything wrong with that picture?
When we think of off-roaders in the good ol’ United States of America, we usually think of a truck. However, lunatics in other countries see just as much off-road time in a Japanese budget subcompact as your buddy does in his beloved Jeep. All-wheel-drive for the win?
Doesn’t every kid grow up dreaming of owning a Subaru Domingo? I know I did!
America has an addiction: an addiction to buying Subarus. Over the past few years this great nation has been snatching up the Outbacks and the Foresters (and in the case of socially irresponsible people, the BRZs and the STIs) almost immediately after they roll off the assembly lines. But the people demand more: more…
For years, Subaru Rally Team USA has crushed its competition in Rally America’s Open Class. After a large chunk of Rally America’s events jumped ship to the newly formed American Rally Association, Rally America’s most dominant team announced today that it will compete in the ARA for the series’ inaugural 2017 season.
I’m pretty sure the largest demographic group in the city of Portland is the community of Subarus. Portland is lousy with Subarus, which is why it may be the only place in the U.S. where hearing that one was accidentally stolen, then returned, with gas money, actually makes some sort of sense.
