2020 Subaru Legacy: New Platform, New Tech, New Everything

The 2020 Subaru Legacy ushers in the sedan’s seventh generation. A new Touring trim will feature genuine Nappa leather, a first for Subaru. The 2020 Legacy has a stronger, more rigid platform versus the 2019 model.  You can say this for Subaru: their timing is perfect. America just suffered through another polar vortex. The Midwest was turned into a beef locker and the Pacific Northwest got hit with the worst snowstorm in 70 years. But Subaru knew all this when they rolled out a new model at ...

QOTD: What Brand Would You Rep?

A thought struck me the other day – since joining TTAC, I’ve liked just about every Honda I’ve reviewed. I even found little fault with the Clarity, which I was otherwise neutral towards. That doesn’t mean I like every Honda. I drove the Fit for 10 minutes at a media event last fall (no review […] The post QOTD: What Brand Would You Rep? appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Subaru Crosstrek and Forester ‘Too Popular’ for Turbocharging

With the 2020 Legacy gaining improvements in the form of an optional turbocharged engine, many wonder how long it might be until the rest of Subaru’s mainstream fleet offers the manufacturer’s FA24 motor. The Ascent has it, and we already know the Outback gets it in 2020, but what about Subaru’s other volume models?

2019 Subaru Ascent Limited Review – Quirks & Quarks

Subaru landed on these shores with a raft of cars and totally-not-trucks (thanks, Chicken Tax) that were certainly capable when shown a rough road but were, in a word, quirky.

Subaru expected to debut two new mild-hybrids in Geneva

As reported by AutoCar, Subaru is bringing an electrified Boxer engine to the Geneva Motor Show next month. In just a month, two "unspecified" models will be getting electric versions of Subaru's 2.0-liter flat-four petrol Boxer engine, coined the e-Boxer, according to AutoCar. As of now, details are sparse about which models will get this mild-hybrid powertrain whose specs are still unknown, they will probably produce similar outputs to those of the Forester e-Boxer that was seen at the Singa...

Subaru’s Sales Success Comes With a Big Side of Trouble

Subaru’s sales in the United States effectively tripled in the past decade, making it the most important market for the brand by a wide margin.

Junkyard Find: 1978 Subaru DL Sedan

Living in Colorado, I see so many discarded Subarus during my junkyard explorations that it takes a very unusual one to make me reach for my camera.

Supra Vs. Z4: The Fine Line Between Toyota & BMW Sports Cars

The 2020 Toyota Supra is destined for greatness. But there’s a problem. The BMW Z4 M40i is basically the same car albeit with a more powerful motor. Which begs the question: when is a Toyota sports car not a BMW? Where does one end and the other begin? The much anticipated hype is over. In the immortal words of my colleague Tony Borroz, it’s time to stop frothing at the mouth since the 2020 Toyota Supra is finally here. And boy, what a journey it has been, huh? I’m pretty sure Toyota did ev...
