Subaru targets Sun Belt states, awaits Trump import-tax decision

Peaking demand, sky-high sales-incentive costs, threats of a border tax—none of these are distracting Subaru from its marketing and growth ambitions in its biggest market. “America is the pillar,” Yasuyuki Yoshinaga, CEO of Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd., which owns the Subaru brand, said. “It’s true we want to increase sales in other countries, but in terms of the place with the best chance to increase sales, it has to be America’s sun belt” states in… Read More →

2018 Subaru Crosstrek Debuts with Warmup Show in Geneva

Once upon a time, there was a modest little Subaru called the Outback Sport. A derivative of the first-generation “just like punk, ’cept it’s cars” Impreza, the Sport existed until 2011, when Fuji’s heavies sent the not-the-same-as-a-real-Outback name off to Paul Hogan’s big backyard in Australia. Its replacement, the XV Crosstrek, hit our shores for the 2013 model year, offering rad wheels and interesting colors. Name games aside, it was the same thing, a pseudo-crossover… Read More →

2018 Subaru Crosstrek improves on an already winning formula

There’s a brand-new Subaru Crosstrek on the way for 2018, and the European version, known as the XV, is making its debut at the Geneva Motor Show. There’s every reason to expect the new Crosstrek to be a stunning sales success. In 2016, Subaru sold 95,677 Crosstreks in the United States, easily besting models like the WRX, Legacy, and the Impreza upon which it’s based. Those sales represented a 7.6 percent gain over the previous… Read More →

2017 Subaru BRZ driven: The joy generator

As the global odometer rolls over into 2017, the mood across the automotive world (to say nothing of the rest of it) is edging toward apocalyptic. The future that awaits us seems more and more to be one in which those of us whose jobs haven’t been made redundant by the robots will step to our curbs in the morning and be whisked away to work by autonomo-lectric pods — and what’s worse, we won’t… Read More →

On the Road Review: Subaru Outback Limited Wagon

As generations change, tastes change. Music, food, even cars all change in consumers’ favorability consciousness. Currently, one of the most popular brands in this part of America is Subaru. As you drive down the road, park when shopping, or talk to neighbors, more of them are piloting cars with the Subaru logo. For a few years, the compact-class Forester crossover carried the honors, but of late, the Outback wagon has regained the top position in… Read More →

2017 Subaru Legacy Sport Arrival: A Return to Practicality

The arrival of a 2017 Subaru Legacy Sport in #MTGarage breaks a long dry spell since we’ve done a long-term test of a practical midsize sedan. That previous honor goes to a 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid, which racked up more than 40,000 miles and averaged an impressive 42.3 mpg during its stay. Our new long-term Legacy doesn’t have hybrid power, but it does bring the unique combination of a boxer engine and all-wheel drive—the latter… Read More →

Motor Mouth: Destroying a car in the name of safety

Imagine you’re a young hotshot engineer. You’ve spent the last four years finite-element analyzing your company’s latest hot rod. It’s the latest in high-tech, a finely tuned blend of performance and comfort and, thanks in part to your long hours, the most exquisitely crafted automobile your company has ever produced. If you could, you’d engrave your name into its — to you, at least — absolutely stunning framework. Read More →
