Subaru

Subaru is an automaker that’s become synonymous with both the boxer engine and symmetrical all-wheel drive. While not one of the giants of the Japanese automotive industry, Subaru has been making cars since the ’50s. Stateside, Subaru is popular for its affordable yet rugged models such as the best-selling Outback or the Impreza that still oozes WRC pedigree to this day. AWD is standard on most cars in Subaru’s lineup but for the BRZ compact sports car that’s RWD, while boxer engines continue to be the norm on most of the models on offer, be it compact SUVs, sedans, station wagons, or the lone sports car.

Gymkhana 2020 Proves Nobody Can Do it Like Ken Block

However, a super-sub like Travis Pastrana still manages to get our blood pumping

For 2020, Ken Block is letting Gymkhana in the hands of Travis Pastrana, who took up the challenge in an otherworldly 862-horsepower WRX STI turned up to eleven with active aero and enlarged engine displacement.

Travis Pastrana himself is no stranger to the world of racing of the X-Games, motocross, supercross and rally ilk but Gymkhana is no walk in the park either as you’re about to see from Pastrana’s facial expressions during the run.

A New Rendering Shows How Much Potential the 2022 Subaru BRZ Really Has

A New Rendering Shows How Much Potential the 2022 Subaru BRZ Really Has

Yes, it’s dressed in STI attire with that cool 22B vibe to it

The Subaru BRZ has that sweet cult car status because of the general aura surrounding the Subaru as a car brand. Such popularity is similar to the love other Japanese brands get from the U.S. car-aficionado public - think Toyota or Honda - and whenever these makers drop a new model, the rip curls reaches every corner of the car world and other related areas.

X-Tomi Design’s take on a would-be Subaru BRZ STI hasn’t gone unnoticed so following the same thematic, it’s time to bring a marvellous set of renders to your attention, this time signed by Khyzyl Saleem.

Subaru Clearly Needs to Build a BRZ STI

If Subaru still says "no," then 2020 really does suck

The second-generation Subaru BRZ has arrived, and it looks like a winner. But just as everyone is celebrating the arrival of the new BRZ, a certain question that was left unanswered with the first-generation model has slowly crept back into the minds of Subaru fans where: are we finally getting the BRZ STI?

We’re no closer to getting the answer we desperately want, but that didn’t stop X-Tomi Design from whetting our appetites with a rendering of what a BRZ STI could look like.

Subaru Says There's a Good Reason the 2022 BRZ Doesn't Have a Turbo

Subaru Says There’s a Good Reason the 2022 BRZ Doesn’t Have a Turbo

A turbocharged Subaru BRZ sounds nice, but there are costs attached to it, too

Visually, the second-generation Subaru BRZ is a major departure from its predecessor. It’s also packing a bigger 2.4-liter engine, which counts as an answered prayer to everyone who wanted the new BRZ to pack more power than the first-generation model.

The 2.4-liter four-cylinder mill is still naturally aspirated, bursting the bubble of those who wanted the new BRZ’s engine to be turbocharged. As disappointing — for some — as that sounds, Subaru had reasons for sticking with a naturally aspirated engine.

The 2022 Subaru BRZ Zooms Into Our Lives on November 18!

Subaru teases "all-new" BRZ, but is it actually a brand-new model?

The Subaru BRZ has been around for an impressive eight years as of 2020. The Japanese company has released some updates, but for the most part the BRZ carried over unchanged since 2012. But that’s about to change. Subaru just released a teaser for an "all-new" model and announced that it will debut on November 18, 2020. Is this a brand-new model for the 2022 model year or just another facelift?

2020 Subaru Gymkhana STI

There’s a new kid on the Gymkhana block and it comes from Subaru

Travis Pastrana will be taking the reins from Ken Block in Gymkhana 11, Subaru sniffed out the opportunity and that’s how the one-off, bare-carbon Gymkhana STI was born.

Subaru and Gymkhana are no strangers to each other, as the first two instalments saw Ken Block smoke the living rubber out of a WRX STI. After a long collabo with Ford, the Gymkhana franchise is back to its roots and we absolutely love what we’re seeing.

The Latest Report on the 2021 Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ Will Piss You Off

The Latest Report on the 2021 Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ Will Piss You Off

As it turns out, almost nothing that we’ve heard about either next-gen car has been true

We’ve been talking about the next-gen Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ since they were confirmed back in February 2019. A year after that confirmation, we learned that the 86 would get a new name, would feature a turbocharged Subaru engine, and would shift into premium territory. More recently, in March of 2020, a new leak hinted that the 2021 Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ would be making their debut soon. A new report, however, has expressed that a lot of what we’ve learned isn’t true at all, and that’s very bad news for the next-gen BRZ and 86.

Thanks to the 2021 Subaru Levorg Wagon, We Know What the New WRX Will Look Like

Thanks to the 2021 Subaru Levorg Wagon, We Know What the New WRX Will Look Like

This is the WRX’s Cousin From the Land of the Rising Sun So There’s a Lot of Common DNA

If the Subaru Levorg doesn’t trigger the neurotransmitters and tickle the temporal lobe in your brain, I’m honestly not too surprise. The Subaru Levorg is mainly a Japanese-only affair with Australia and a handful of European countries getting their hand’s on it only recently, after some 4-5 years on the market. As a wagon, it’s not surprising that Subaru hasn’t brought it to the U.S., but it’s still largely relevant here for one major reason – it has historically shared a lot of DNA with the Subaru WRX. The car that you see here is the second-gen, 2021 Subaru Levorg, which means that we’re getting our first real look at what the next-gen WRX and WRX STI are going to look like here in the United States. Pretty cool, right?

2021 Subaru Forester Buyer’s Guide - Price and Trim Levels

Here’s what’s new about the 2021 Subaru Forester

Subaru is keeping the Forester fresh for the 2021 model year with subtle tweaks. In the process, the base sticker takes a hike, going from $24,495 for the 2020 Forester to $24,795 for the 2021 Forester. Granted, the $300 bump in price isn’t that much, not when it’s justified by the list of features.
