Subaru Logo


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 Liberty 3.6R Review

The sixth generation Subaru Liberty is better looking and more feature packed than before. The nameplate had become a little uninspiring in its previous incarnation, the Liberty is back. What a change from the previous generation – it’s not as boxy looking, with more sophisticated, European inspired lines. This is the top-of-the-line Liberty 3...

2015 Subaru Outback Review (MY16)

Read the article here. The Subaru Outback was launched in 1994 and was then, essentially, extra ride height and plastic cladding added to a Liberty wagon.

Skoda Octavia Scout 135TDI v Subaru Outback 2.0D Premium : Comparison Review

The Skoda Octavia Scout arrived in March aiming to steal a slice of the all-terrain, all-wheel-drive premium wagon pie from Subaru Outback. A niche pie that the Outback has and continues to own in Australia, as demonstrated by recent record-breaking sales - despite the less-than-threatening opposition presented by rivals such as, well, Skoda’s own Superb 4x4 Outdoor...

1999 Subaru Impreza Review

Love it or hate it, the first thing you notice about the handsome Impreza is how purposeful it looks. From the deep front air dam with fog light covers, to a bonnet full of speed holes and that ridiculous rear wing; it proudly shows off its rally heritage. Hiding behind the pink grill badge is a full fruit version of Subaru's 2 litre flat four...

2007 Subaru Liberty Review

Up for review is my 2007 Subaru Liberty 2.5i which I have been the proud owner for nearly 2 years. What attracted to me to this car was not only the price tag, but how luxurious it looked on the outside. Along with its good looks, the liberty has a 5 star ANCAP safety rating along with the DataDot security system...

2013 Subaru WRX Review

Flared arches? Check. Rally Heritage? Check. Boxer engine? Check. The 2013 Subaru WRX S-edition is a seriously good car for the money. With its exciting performance, street appeal and refined handling, it was one of the best performance buys in 2013. It all starts with the figures; 195kW of power, 343Nm of Torque, 0-100km/h in 5.3 seconds...
