One of the most wonderful sensations come when you command a whole handful of power just with the flexing of your right foot. Horsepower is an intoxicating element when it comes to driving, but that doesn’t mean that it’s saved for the most expensive vehicles out there.
Lawmakers in Washington, D.C., and California are armed with a legislative battleaxe and they’re bringing it to bear against the automotive industry. Fuel economy regulations are hitting like a war hammer, disrupting the market and crushing carmakers. In a mad dash to meet upcoming CAFE standards, manufacturers are dramatically shifting their product offerings. Downsized vehicles, hybrid drivetrains and EVs are some of the tools in their defensive arsenals.
Subaru offers an amazing spread of accessories for every vehicle in their lineup, so when you are ordering a Forester, a BRZ, an Ascent or one of their other new models, there are lots of items that can be added before you take delivery. However, if you are buying a new vehicle off of the dealership lot, or if you are buying a used model, there are a great many Subaru Forester accessories which can make ownership easier and more convenient.
Whether you drive Subaru’s entry-level WRX sport sedan or hot hatch or the speedier WRX STI, we’re sure you already derive plenty of pleasure from exploring your car’s formidable performance abilities. But whether you participate in rally races to channel your inner WRC driver, stick to the tarmac of racetracks and autocross courses, or simply like to go for a rip along your favorite back road, we’re sure you’ve given at least some thought to what you can do to your car to unleash more of its performance potential.
If you’re driving a Subaru Forester, there’s a good chance that you’re planning on getting more out of your crossover than the average buyer.

Although the Subaru Forester offers plenty of utility straight off the dealership lot, there’s always room for improvement, depending on your needs.

Despite what some might call challenging looks, the original Toyota Venza was a popular model. Even four years after its discontinuation, Toyota sold nine last year. Come 2020, just a few days ago, guess who made a comeback along with the new Sienna? The all-new 2021 Toyota Venza.
While success is never guaranteed in the car industry, launching an SUV in North America these days comes pretty darn close. At the risk of oversimplification, a carmaker needs only roll the thing out and then sit back and watch buyers flock to dealerships to hand over their money.
Like the Cheshire Cat slowly vanishing from the Queen of Hearts’ croquet field, the mid-size four-door sedan is disappearing from this country’s automotive marketplace. Two of the Detroit Three are busily pulling the plug on Fusion and Impala. And the Charger and 300 soldier on with underpinnings so old they could be carbon dated.
There was a time when nobody could out-weird Subaru. It was long the go-to brand for granola types seeking a rig with power always going to all four wheels. In fact, if you wanted an all-wheel-drive coupe with bizarre windows or a station wagon with most of its roof lopped off, Subaru was the only game in town. The Subaru Outback, despite being a more conventional vehicle was the only vehicle of its kind, a wagon that could handle the rough stuff throwing no tantrums.
