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 seven models in Australia including the Liberty, Outback, Impreza, XV, WRX, WRX STI and Forester. Subaru is Australia's 10th best-selling car maker.

2016 Subaru Forester tS Review

Read the article here. There are no fewer than 11 STI emblems on the 2016 Subaru Forester tS, so if you're a Suby enthusiast you’d expect it to live up to the hype of the Japanese maker’s go-fast sub-brand. What is the new Forester tS? Well, it clearly isn’t just any Forester given that it features revised styling, revamped suspension, 19-inch Enkei wheels with wider tyres and bigger Brembo brakes – but crucially, no more power...

Front-wheel-drive v rear-wheel-drive v all-wheel-drive: Vehicle dynamics and stability control tested

Read the article here. Front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. What's the difference? And which one should you buy?

Along with Australian World Rally Championship driver Chris Atkinson, we also brought along an example of each drivetrain layout...

2016 Volkswagen Passat Alltrack 2.0TDI v 2016 Subaru Outback 3.6R Comparison

Read the article here. Australian buyers have been bashing down the doors at dealers, rushing madly to secure the keys (or keyless fobs) to large SUVs over the past decade without so much as a backward glance. The harsh reality, though, is most of those buyers don’t really need a large SUV...

Holden Calais V v Subaru Liberty 3.6R Comparison

The Holden Commodore and Ford Falcon were long the default options for families wanting a bucketload of space, a sporty drive and a powerful six-cylinder engine. And let’s not forget the somewhat less inspiring Toyota Aurion, too. Sometimes forgotten though, and somewhat pushed off to the side, is the mid-sized Subaru Liberty — especially in 3...

2016 Subaru Liberty 2.5i Review

Having this vehicle for one day as a loan car, it impressed myself to a degree where I have to share my thoughts on it. For such a small engine with a 129KW, the 2.5L 4 Cylinder gets the car moving and isn't much of a slouch despite the CVT transmission. The CVT does affect the quality of the drive being a bit jerky and delayed acceleration...

2016 Subaru Impreza 2.0i-S (AWD) Review

I purchased the car for my wife because I like the feature of the all wheel drive, the sat nav is so easy to use even for my wife and the hands free phone is another great feature. The car drives like a train on tracks compared to other brands. Especially around winding roads like the Dandenong Ranges and wet road surfaces...

2006 Subaru Impreza WRX (AWD) Review

Predominantly bought my 06 WRX as a second car for dad (myself) to whiz to work and back ? Now a decade old and 120k on the clock the car has held up well. Its now reached its timing belt replacement. My three growing kids can find it a bit of a squeeze but we still enjoy its open road performance and handling...

2016 Subaru Liberty 3.6r Review

The Japanese are known for their exacting standards of quality, their technological achievements, their Kaizen approach to improvement, and their slightly left of centre quirkiness. No industry epitomises these traits more than the Japanese automotive industry, and no Japanese manufacturer more so than Subaru...
