Subaru

Subaru built its first car (Subaru 1500) in 1954 having spent the previous decade as the major supplier of aircraft to the Japanese airforce during World War II. Today the Japanese company is best known for its emphasis on All-Wheel-Drive technology, using that as a differentiating factor from other Japanese manufacturers. Subaru gained prominence in Australia with cars such as the Impreza WRX and Forester & the only rear-wheel-drive BRZ which have earned the company a well deserved reputation for reliability and performance. Subaru currently sells five models in Australia including the Liberty, Outback, Tribeca and is the eighth best selling brand.

2015 Subaru WRX Premium (AWD) Review

Late last year when I was looking for a new car I had just came out of a Passat TDi130 Highline wagon. I was initially looking at an Outback but decided we didn't really need two large cars (we had a territory as well which we have just traded on a new GXL Prado). When I was at the dealership I decided to test drive the newly released MY16 WRX...

2015 Subaru WRX Premium (AWD) Review

This car is a fantastic value for money performance car. After owning for 12 months this car has never given me any problems. And the quality of the car has proven itself, with no obvious wear or tear.
