2022 Subaru WRX Review: The Last of a Dying Breed
2022 Subaru BRZ Review - Proof That Second Chances Are Well Worth It
Subaru didn’t have to change much about the BRZ. Since its debut in 2013, it has been almost in a class by itself — and a highly desirable one at that. Still, it wasn’t quite perfect. The interior was basic and dated, and not in an endearing way. The cabin was buzzy on the highway. There was basically no visual distinction from its Toyota 86 twin. And while its 200 horsepower was just right for some tastes, others felt the ideal output could be higher. Fix those things without wrecking something else, and the BRZ would be just about perfect, at least for someone who wants that type of vehicle.
There was no promise though that we’d even get a second generation. Toyota and Subaru could have put their development dollars somewhere else rather than on a low-volume affordable sports coupe. But sure enough, a redesigned BRZ (and a renamed Toyota GR86) hit the market for 2022, priced from $27,995. Subaru could have badly screwed up this redesign, especially from an enthusiast perspective where it could have diluted the BRZ’s appeal while chasing other mainstream rivals. But thankfully, that isn’t the case and if you liked the old BRZ, you’ll probably like the new one even more.
2023 Subaru Solterra
Subaru is known for its boxer engines. As a matter of fact, this is what made Subaru stand out in the automotive industry. However, the move towards electric vehicles (EVs) means that Subaru even has to ditch what made their cars unique in the first place in favor of motors that are powered by electrons.
2022 Subaru BRZ Cup Car Basic
Subaru has announced the new "BRZ Cup Car Basic" - a special BRZ built by STi and only for track use. It will race in the upcoming Toyota Gazoo Racing GR86 / BRZ Cup - a new racing series for 2022 with five different races. The first one will take place on July 16-17, 2022 at the Fuji Speedway.
This special BRZ is priced at 3,338,500 Japanese Yen (almost $29,000 at the current exchange rates) and it is pretty much our dream BRZ.
2022 Subaru Ascent - Driven
There are a plethora of mid-size three-row SUVs that you can buy today, and the Subaru Ascent is one of them. The Ascent has some things going in its favor, like a standard all-wheel-drive system, smooth ride, etc., but it also has many things that will make potential customers look elsewhere. For starters, there’s the Continuously Variable Transmission that offers a supple ride, but comes with the infamous rubber band effect. The third-row isn’t the most spacious either. But, all that said, you get a whole lot of safety tech even in the base trims, amongst other things. We recently tested the Ascent, and here’s all you need to know about this SUV from Subaru.
2022 Subaru WRX S4
With the death of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, many started to fat-shame the Subaru STI. With the latest generation recently unveiled, many hope that the Japanese, rally-inspired sedan will redeem itself. And while officially, a full-on STI model is yet to arrive, the recently unveiled, Japan-only WRX S4, is a good sign that this may happen soon.
2022 Subaru Forester Wilderness
Now in its fifth generation, the Forester is entering the 2022 model year with a series of updates necessary to keep the model fresh. Subaru gives the SUV a redesigned front fascia, with updated grille, headlights and fog light covers.
But, the most important update to the lineup is the addition of a sixth trim level: the all-new Wilderness. With unique and functional exterior and interior appointments, and an elevated ground clearance, the 2022 Wilderness was described as the "most rugged and trail-capable Forester ever."
2022 Subaru BRZ
The Subaru BRZ enters its second generation with a total redesign similar to what we have seen with its brother from another mother, the GR 86. They share the same heart and behave almost similarly but to find out which is better, make sure to stick around this in-depth review of the new 2022 Subaru BRZ.
2022 Subaru WRX
Subaru finally took the wraps off the all-new, fifth-gen 2022 WRX. The car rides on a new platform, features a new engine, and comes with a whole lot of other upgrades inside out. You even get to choose between a performance-tuned CVT and a manual gearbox. While it doesn’t look too different from its predecessors, the automaker has made quite a few changes to make it more performance-oriented and engaging. The price isn’t revealed, but Subaru mentioned that the new WRX will arrive at the dealerships early next year.
2021 Subaru Crosstrek Sport - Driven
Subaru introduced the Crosstrek last decade as a successor to the Outback Sport. It was essentially an Impreza with an off-road bias. This formula worked well for the company as it soon became the best-selling Subaru in the U.S.
For the 2021 model year, Subaru introduced a new ‘Sport’ trim along with a new engine option that further makes this a desirable product. Will these upgrades help Subaru sell more than Crosstreks than it has in the previous years?
2020 Subaru Gymkhana STI
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.
2020 Subaru Outback - Driven
The Subaru Outback started like as a full-fledged station wagon that was based on the Legacy back in 1994. In those 16 years, the Outback slowly evolved from your everyday wagon to what is, essentially, a crossover by today’s standards. As such, the competition is fierce, and with the sixth-gen Outback hitting the market for the 2020 model year, we thought it would be a great idea to see just what it has th
at sets it apart from the many models on the market. Fortunately for us (and you, of course), Subaru was kind enough to let us get behind the wheel of an Outback Onyx Edition XT for an entire week. This is what we’ve learned.
