5 things I learned driving the 2020 Subaru Forester — through a farmer’s back 40

  I recently had a refresher course in all things Subaru. And, just like their cars, the company does things a little different.

It’s the middle of Betws-y-Coed late on a Wednesday morning of Rally GB week and Sebastien Ogier is waiting patiently in traffic. Curiously, the six-time World Rally champion is moving through this most beautiful of Welsh towns totally unmolested. Nobody’s given him or his motor a second glance.

First Drive: 2019 Forester Is Every Bit As Good As Subaru Said It Would Be

We’re sure there are a lot of apprehensive Subaru fans reluctantly reading this new Forester drive report, disappointed to learn that the Japanese company has ousted the model’s 6-speed manual and turbo from the latest version while taking a conservative approach with its all-new restyling and adding a mild hybrid specification.

Subaru EyeSight Father Returns in Stereo Vision

ITD Lab, a 20-person startup based here, is pitching “Intelligent Stereo Camera (ISC)” technology for applications ranging from ADAS, autonomous vehicles, and drones to construction machines and industrial robots.
