Subaru has been on-fire (figuratively) for years now in U.S. sales growth, and they’re looking to grow even further by showing off concepts for a new Impreza wagon and full-size SUV at this year’s Tokyo Motor Show.
Welcome to Sunday Matinee, where we highlight classic car reviews or other longer videos I find on YouTube. Kick back and enjoy this blast from the past.
Subaru's now famous Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive is 40 years old. Contrary to what you might expect, the first couple of Subarus using it were not turbocharged racecars fighting against the mud and snow but rather affordable coupes and family cars in need of some extra grip. The Japanese company has been commited to…
A 20-year-old driver in Santa Fe, Texas had a yeeee-ha moment in a Subaru Impreza STI this past weekend. He missed a turn at 90 mph, ran up a railroad embankment (aka, "ramp"), flew 100 feet through the air, and slammed through the roof of a building.
Google Street View drivers have a job to do. They're the Internet's eyes. But will they really flick you off in traffic? This photo being passed around the Internet indicates they will, but we think it's a Photoshop.
With off-the-mark fuel economy and iffy styling, the last-gen Impreza found itself behind a couple of curves. Indeed, 41% of buyers who'd considered but didn't choose the previous Impreza cited styling as the reason. But will the 2012 Subaru Impreza change all that? Let's find out.
Youtube is flooded with videos of people drifting Subaru Imprezas, but this isn't just any Impreza. Underneath this Subaru's hood sits a V10 from a BMW M5. Watching this video requires overcoming the mind blowing sound to visual discrepancy.
The video earlier today of the busted Subaru being towed out of Miner's Gulch? Here's the moron doing it. Note the friend asking "Is this even meant for cars?" The answer is "no, no it isn't." Someone was kind enough to relieve him of his seats and stereo after he abandoned the car.
A Subaru Impreza owner attempted to race down a challenging rocky path in Miner's Gulch, Colo., only to discover you can't actually drive a lightly, spray-paint modified as if it were a Jeep. Watching it get towed out is amusing and awful all at the same time.UPDATE!
Every new vehicle replacing a current model at this year's New York Auto Show either offers the same or more power than the model it replaces — every one except the 2012 Subaru Impreza, which sheds 22 hp. Here's why.
The 2012 Subaru Impreza will be the most efficient AWD car in America, hitting 36 mpg on the highway when it debuts. To achieve this figure, they apparently had to make the car look as much like a bland version of the Mazda3 as possible. Or is it a Nissan Altima? Accord? We don't know, it now looks just like the rest…
Before tacking the fourth stage of the 2010 Rally of the Tall Pines last November, Subaru strapped four cameras on the WRX STi driven by Pat Richard and Alan Ockwell. Now you can choose your own seat for the action.
Let's say you've snagged a rolled Subaru WRX for $1,950 Canadian and you have a Honda Civic you're bored with. Why not chop both up, lay the Civic body on the WRX frame and create an AWD, boxer-powered Hondabaru?
Homologate [ho'malegat]: verb. 1) approve for sale in a particular market or use in a particular class of racing. 2) express agreement with or approval of. 3) set something up to be loved by Jalopnik. STI sedan, anyone?
