Surfing trip to Ulladulla in the 2017 Subaru Outback 2.5i Premium

If ever there were an alternative to the average SUV, it's the 2018 Subaru Outback. More kit, better road manners and smart storage solutions complete what is an excellent family chariot.

Subaru has used its 'Vision for Innovation' line of concepts to hint at the production Ascent, while elements of previous iterations have been integrated into the Impreza and Outback...

2017 Subaru Impreza 2.0i Premium long-term review, report five: country and highway driving

Around town, we found a noticeable chink in the Subaru Impreza’s armour. A significant lack of low-end pull that makes getting up to speed quickly, overtaking or accelerating up a hill make it seem like you’re asking so much for the Impreza’s modest 2.0-litre petrol engine. However, what we did notice was that once you’re up and moving, the Impreza settles to offer a competent and enjoyable ride...

2017 Subaru Impreza 2.0i Premium long-term review, report four: urban driving

It’s proved to be quite a likable thing with plenty to offer in areas like safety, comfort and tech, but this time we’ll take a look at how it performs in the day-to-day urban grind.

How to drive fast in a Subaru WRX STI

Patience. That’s a concept Alborz doesn't explore too often, but being on a racetrack and in the driver’s seat of a Subaru WRX STI with a professional rally driver next to him, patience was very much a virtue he dearly lacked. So, he set out to learn some patience, and hopefully improve his lap times as a result!  ...

2017 Subaru Impreza 2.0i Premium long-term review, report three: interior

We’re back in the 2017 Subaru Impreza 2.0i Premium, this time taking a look at the interior. Yet another area where I think the Subie excels. First impressions are great. A large 8.0-inch screen finished with piano black accents sits prominently in the middle of the dash, soft-touch plastics, chrome accents and faux carbon-fibre are scattered around the cockpit, and it becomes clear that Subaru has gone to great lengths to make the interior of the Impreza feel more upmarket than it really is...
