On National Drive-Thru Day, the Subaru Ascent Is Cupholder King

The all-new 2019 Subaru Ascent is a solid return for the brand to the three-row SUV class. In addition to familiar styling that still adheres to the automaker’s design language found in its popular smaller SUVs/wagons, the Ascent upholds Subaru’s time-honored tradition of safety, practicality and affordability. Its interior quality stands out, its noise-canceling abilities are at luxury-class levels, and its standard all-wheel drive and EyeSight safety suite make it a competitive entrant to an… Read More →

I was totally wrong about the Subaru WRX STI Type RA

Fifteen hours of travel and a vaguely nauseating drive to 6,600 feet in elevation came down to three seconds of action: Rally master Mark Higgins burst through dense Romanian fog in Subaru’s purpose-built STI time-attack racer, howled past our vantage point and … vanished again into another fog bank. Thanks to murky weather, it was an anticlimactic glimpse of an otherwise remarkable attempt: Subaru managed to grease enough government palms to shut down 84 kilometers… Read More →

Subaru Finally Goes Big With Its New SUV

The quirky company, beloved on the coasts, is taking a risk with its largest vehicle to date. How far has Subaru come during its 60 years of selling cars? Roughly seven feet. That’s the difference lengthwise between its first vehicle, the diminutive “360” later dubbed “the ladybug,” and a pumped up new SUV called the Ascent. Make no mistake. The Ascent is a Texas-sized rig, thoroughly incongruous with its creator’s climate-conscious, blue-state reputation. It’s a… Read More →

New Import Duties Could Body Slam Subaru

Subaru is a once-tiny manufacturer that grew in leaps and bounds thanks to high demand from the United States. The automaker is the eighth best-selling brand in the region, despite being a scrappy upstart, and has managed multiply its volume many since the 1990s. But, like any business loaded into a cannon with the word “success” emblazoned on the side, it can’t continue streaming through the clouds indefinitely without encountering some turbulence.

Next Subaru Legacy Strips Off Body Cladding In New Spy Shots

Even with less concealment, the next-gen sedan still looks a lot like the current model. New spy shots of the next-gen Subaru Legacy are here, and they show a lot more of the new sedan than the previous, heavily concealed test mule. This one only appears to wear camouflage, and there’s no evidence of extra cladding to hide the body. According to the spy photographer, this one was on the road in Detroit. Read More →

The winding road to old Jerome in the 2018 Toyota 86 coupe

Great driving roads take on so many variations, but what most have in common are great scenery spiced with challenging curves and elevations. One of my favorite driving roads in Arizona is the twisting climb of State Route 89A as it crosses over Mingus Mountain from Prescott Valley to the old mining town of Jerome. The 12-mile trek is a favorite of motorcyclists and sports car drivers. It’s loaded with hairpin turns and sweeping overlooks… Read More →
