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.

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?

2009 Subaru Forester 2.5X Review

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.
2008 Subaru Tribeca Review

2008 Subaru Tribeca Review

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.
