Subaru Car Reviews View All Reviews
Perhaps the biggest name in rally racing, Subaru has earned a reputation for building long-lasting, fun to drive cars. Like BMW, Subaru has its roots in aviation - building planes for Japan in World War II. After the war, the company turned its attention to automobiles and in 1954 the Subaru 1500 (also known as the P-1) was introduced. Over the years Subaru produced such notable models as the Legacy, the Impreza and the Forester.
Subaru Sedan Reviews
Competing in the most competitive slice of the North American new-vehicle market, how does Subaru’s refreshed Legacy stack up?
Subaru’s base model Impreza, the 2.5i, may not pack the punch of its big brother WRX, but as an economy/compact class sedan it’s remarkably sure-footed and surprisingly fun to drive.
Knowing full-well that past Legacy models were not up to the task, for 2010 Subaru’s AWD family sedan has been designed specifically to go head-to-head with the rest of the mid-sized market.
Subaru Compact Car Reviews
The Impreza has gone full mainstream in an attempt to find more buyers and it is working. Does this car appeal to our general consumer tester? We gave her one for a week to find out.
Subaru Crossover Reviews
Subaru claims the new Forester XT is putting the sport back in Sport Utility. We put this bold claim to the test comparing it to Subaru’s own sports car, the BRZ.
Can more power and a stiffer suspension stave off the CVT doldrums in Subaru’s all-new Forester XT?
It might not look all-new, but drive the 2014 Forester and you’ll soon realize just how improved it is.
Subaru aims to take on the crossover crowd with an innovative new package, but will anyone beyond the Subie faithful convert?
Subaru SUV Reviews
In the crowded midsize crossover/SUV category, the Subaru Tribeca provides a surprisingly sporty driving experience but comes up short on both passenger and cargo space.
A new base engine and equipment upgrades are in the cards for 2011, but are they enough to keep the current Forester competitive in the cut throat small CUV segment?
Tired of Toyotas? Yawning over Hondas? The Subaru Forester may not be the prettiest SUV, but its features and capability are at the top of its class.
With its conservative face lift, slight name change and a new 3.6L engine, however, the redesigned 2008 Subaru Tribeca should be taken more seriously by mainstream buyers.
Subaru Hybrid Car Reviews
Subaru seems unsure if its first attempt at a hybrid should boost power or save fuel.
Subaru Sports Car Reviews
Subaru’s compact sport sedan knocks it out of the park.
Forget everything you think you know about the new STI.
Is the Ken Block-approved Ford Fiesta ST hot enough to outpace the purest sports coupe $25k can buy?
The 2015 WRX is a car on a mission: Please the purists while attracting new buyers to the Subaru brand. Several automakers have tried this and failed, but Subaru seems to have pulled it off.
Subaru Coupe Reviews
Borrowing heavily from big-brother STI for the 2011 model year, the WRX grows as an even better value package for those in search of a serious performance machine.
