Junkyard Find: 2002 Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS Sedan

The Subaru Impreza has been with us since the 1993 model year, and you’ll still see plenty of the first-generation Impreza Outback wagons on the streets (and in the junkyards) of Colorado. All US-market Subarus got all-wheel-drive starting in the 1997 model year, so the company’s American marketers had to show a distinction between the […] The post Junkyard Find: 2002 Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS Sedan appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Junkyard Find: 2005 Saab 9-2X Linear

Weird examples of badge engineering! Who doesn’t love them? Bad people, that’s who, and so I do my best to find such vehicles while I’m exploring car graveyards. The badge-engineering world includes Isuzus badged as Hondas, Hondas badged as Isuzus, Mitsubishis badged as Dodges, Dodges badged as Mitsubishis, Chevrolets badged as Saabs, and — of […] The post Junkyard Find: 2005 Saab 9-2X Linear appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Ace of Base: 2020 Subaru Impreza Sedan

There was a time when no one out-weirded Subaru. Gonzo digital gauges, windows within windows, and a general Birkenstock image cemented them as the choice of the grains-n-granola crowd. These days, the cars still march to a different beat but appeal to a much wider audience. The company’s winning sales streak stands as proof. For […] The post Ace of Base: 2020 Subaru Impreza Sedan appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

NAIAS 2019: Subaru Deems Americans Worthy of Limited-edition S209

Subaru has a history of keeping the good stuff in Japan. Eastward-looking rally enthusiasts clamored in the early ’90s for the turbocharged Impreza WRX. Subaru sent us the naturally-aspirated Impreza 2.5RS in 1998. Once the WRX hit our shores in 2000, we saw the more-powerful WRX STi as the forbidden fruit, not to grace our […] The post NAIAS 2019: Subaru Deems Americans Worthy of Limited-edition S209 appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Behind the scenes with E15 as we peel back the layers

Sometimes we feel like we are living in an alternate universe. You think everything is great – President Trump announces support for year-round E15 and things are looking up for ethanol. Then you open a newspaper (in your hands or on your web browser…) and the Halloween horror begins and you see an article attacking year-round ethanol or a press release that says E15 will ruin your engines. So what to believe? Is E15 a trick or a treat? We imagine most readers here will side with “treat” but to...

2019 Subaru Ascent First Drive

Subaru commands less than 4 percent of the U.S. auto market, making it a relatively small player in the industry. And although it’s not keen on becoming as big as Honda or Toyota, Subaru has known for some time it needs to expand its lineup with a three-row crossover. Unlike the Tribeca, which ran on the small side until it was discontinued years ago, the 2019 Subaru Ascent sits squarely in the three-row midsize SUV segment to properly compete with the Ford Explorer, Honda Pilot, Toyota Highland...

2017 Subaru WRX STI Final Edition Marks The End of an Era

It’s true, when Subaru fans get to write to their remembrance of the things past they will mark today as the day the WRX STI died in the UK. Well, it’s not completely deceased yet. But with only 150 Subaru WRX STI Final Edition models to go, it’s as good as dead.  Fear not though, and do not despair, because just as the Impreza dies and gave way to the WRX STI, there will emerge from the ashes of the outgoing a new yobmobile. But if you are obsessed with the current version make sure you hav...

Meet Randy Rod-Knock and his flying Subaru

“Faster than Travis Pastrami and Sébastien Ear Lobe combined” Forget pickup trucks, Canadian rednecks prefer to hoon in Subarus! At least the rally focused brand is the vehicle of choice for rural Ontario funny guy Randy Rod-Knock! Taking over a property just a few minutes away from the historic Mosport circuit at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, the guy shreds the lawn before taking flight off a berm in the yard. Caution: NSFW language to follow.

Subaru WRX STI Type RA to Debut Prior to BRZ STI

As Subaru continues work on a performance-spec BRZ, there has been a cautious level of optimism surrounding its development. So when Subaru USA tweeted out a massive rear spoiler and urged us to “stay tuned” for June 8th, everyone naturally assumed this was the vehicle to be on the lookout for. Another image was released today […] The post Subaru WRX STI Type RA to Debut Prior to BRZ STI appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2017 Mitsubishi Lancer 2.4 AWD First Test: Aged but Honest

Walking through a crowded parking lot one late night, I was having a hard time finding our silver all-wheel-drive 2017 Mitsubishi Lancer 2.4 among all the many different shapes and colors in the dimly lit parking lot. Finally, I saw the car’s narrow, high-mounted, inward-slanting taillights peering at me from a distance and knew that was it. What other compact sedan has a rear end like that? After a push of the small rubber unlock button on the edge of the door handle, I entered the Lancer and i...

Subaru VIZIV-7 Concept Bows at L.A. Auto Show

Complementing their current lineup of not-so-pretty but extremely functional SUVs, Subaru unveiled at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show a new 7-seat SUV concept previewing a future production model. Apart from its god-awful name, Subaru VIZIV-7 seems almost ready to make the jump from the concept realm into reality. Subaru VIZIV-7 Concept follows the same kind of design traditions we have come to know and like in the Impreza concepts the company lobs at us every once in a while. Subaru calls it...

Small car scribbles

In addition to organizing the Canadian Car of the Year awards testfest event last month, I had also been tasked by a print editor to evaluate the small car category. Doing double duty means that I typically don’t have time to actually write about the cars during the event. Unlike some of the old guard, paper note pads aren’t my thing. Instead, I use Google Keep, which allows me to keep great notes. It occurred to me while writing the story yesterday that it also allows me to share my scribbles...

Ace of Base: 2017 Subaru Impreza 2.0i

Sometimes a manufacturer churns out a base trim that — all things considered — might just be the primo choice for that particular model. Here’s an example.

The thing is, at an instant ramen price point, the compact truck is […] The post Ace of Base: 2017 Subaru Impreza 2.0i appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

First American-Made Subaru Impreza Rolls off the Line

Subaru’s parent company, Fuji Heavy Industries, decided to begin producing Imprezas in Indiana due to strong demand for the brand’s vehicles here in the U.S. “In a time when some manufacturer...

2016 Subaru WRX Long-Term Test: Hitting 15,000 Miles

My 2016 Subaru WRX crossed over the 15,000 mile mark after only nine months of ownership. While some of its new car smell has worn off, my affection for it only continues to grow. The WRX has received scheduled maintenance and begun a journey into competitive driving to bring out its full character.

2016 Subaru WRX Review

Speed is indeed a question of money … and not only in terms of how fast do you want to go. Last week, I test-drove the 2016 BMW 340i (review here) which is a ripper in luxury sedan drag. Spool up the turbos and dump the clutch… the thing will leave twin ruts in the asphalt … and 4.6 seconds later, you’re doing 60. No one expects this. Which is a big part of the car’s appeal. It is brass knuckles in a velvet glove. This week, I’ve got the new Subaru WRX. It is a known ripper — as out of the close...
