As the sun sets on Super Bowl Sunday, here’s a bit of a peaceful break from your football-filled timelines and lives—courtesy of the open road and a Subaru.
I have loved cars since I could talk, and I’ve loved Subarus almost as long. I love them so much that I daily-drive one of the wildest and worst Subies in New York—a bagged and stanced 2005 Baja Turbo. But when I talked my way into a brand new 2016 WRX STI, there was only one question. How does a modern, proper,…
How in the world can I possibly compare this crazy stanced and bagged Subaru Baja to the new 2016 Subaru WRX STI? Find out soon in my upcoming article.
Subaru claims that this limited-edition Impreza WRX STI S207 “aims to be the world’s most enjoyable vehicle.” What vehicle, exactly, will it have to dethrone for that title?
Subaru driver David Higgins and codriver Craig Drew got exactly what they dreamed of today: a perfect, undefeated Rally America season. They’ve been untouchable all year, but how? Being able to swap a host of borked parts in a ten-minute service probably has something to do with it.
This is the Subaru Impreza WRX STI NR4 and yes, it’s a fully stripped, prepped and caged rally car sold by Subaru itself. Obviously, there’s a slight catch.
Yes, they’re awfully close to BMW’s Yas Marina Blue, but I have to admit Subaru’s limited-edition Series Hyper.Blue BRZ and WRX STI look sexy as hell. Only 700 STIs and 500 BRZs will have the color when they go on sale this fall. Get ‘em while they last.
The Isle of Man is a small scenic stretch of land situated in a spot of sea between the United Kingdom and Ireland. It’s also the home to one of the most (if not THE most) insane bit of motorsports on the planet.
Colin McRae will always be one of the greatest rally drivers of all time. Here he is comparing one of Prodrive’s most basic cars with one of their most complicated: a 911 to a WRC-spec Subaru WRX STI.
Subarus love snow, because to a Subaru snow means snownuts. But does a Scoobie really need all that powder to go sideways? Evidence suggests not.
When we first saw the 2015 Subaru WRX STI Rally America car, it was in narrowbody snow spec. Here it is as a full widebody.
It seems like the last decade has seen more horsepower go to the average consume than ever before. Is this actually true?
Here was the plan: take a $112,000 Mercedes E63 AMG S Wagon, a Subaru STI, a BMW 228i, and a 1973 Volkswagen Baja Bug, and blast sideways on a snow-covered private test track hidden in the woods of Connecticut. Simple, right?
I recently had the chance to drive the 2014 Subaru WRX STI Rally America car, and I thought I went really fast. But later that day, I rode with David Higgins in his brand new 2015 open class WRX STI. I did not drive fast, and my face still hurts from how much I smiled.
Rallying is a nuanced art. It takes years of training to get to the level where you can drive an open class car like this Subaru WRX STI with a sequential gearbox and 500 pound feet of torque. But I didn't have years of training. I had hours. And driving it has warped my brain forever.
What happens when you hand a rally driver a new race car? They send it sideways over the first yump available.
It's time to step away from the usual luxury sedans and feature a car that was designed to go fast and nothing else. Enter this Subaru WRX STi, a 300 HP, all-wheel drive, rally rocketship for less than the price of a base model Toyota Yaris. People, decisions don't get much easier than this.
This Subaru WRX STI doesn't seem to have much trouble with it, that's for sure.
I can't stand those commercials that have some lame-ass economy car drifting in a parking lot or something (looking at you Nissan). Those ads do nothing for me as a buyer, but this Subaru commercial from Spain makes me want to buy a new WRX STI...like right now!
