    Review: 2014 Subaru Forester XT
    1368547020

    Power Doesn't Come Cheap When Subaru first offered a turbocharged Forester XT model to US customers for the 2004 model year, the shoe-shaped second-gen model fell into a ready-made competitive set of small, V6-powered crossovers and SUVs. The XT might have been more of a raucous shopping-trip companion than, say, a Ford Escape V6, but the basics of the ...

    Review: 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek
    1352221020

    A Rugged Runabout For The Masses If there's one thing manufacturers can't stand, it's a void in the marketplace. Product planners spend untold hours scouring the automotive spectrum for any whiff of white space, and once found, waste no time in sussing up a new model to fill the vacuum. That's how we wind up with oddities like the Nissan Murano ...

    Review: 2012 Subaru Impreza
    1323968220

    Going Mainstream With The Beauty Of All-Wheel-Drive Subaru found itself in an interesting position when the North American auto market imploded back in 2009. While most manufacturers were busily darting about trying to stop their sales from bleeding out, the quirky Japanese automaker actually posted gains in both market share and earnings during the ...

    1307462220

    Winged Wonder Offers Performance, But Does It Deliver Value? During our weeklong stint with the 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STI, many friends asked an all-too-obvious question: "How does it compare to the Mitsubishi Evolution?" A fair query, as the STI vs. Evo debate is something that we've pondered ever since Subaru launched its street-legal rally car in ...

    Measuring The Difference In Inches One point three inches. How much difference can it make? That depends on what you're measuring. If you're comparing the 2010 Subaru Impreza WRX to the 2011, that small measurement makes all the difference in the world. If you're a Subie fan, you've already read our First Drive.

    Review: 2010 Subaru Outback adds size, power and refinement for a big wagon winner
    1261501020

    Even in the face of a bleak economy and dreadful auto sales, Subaru managed to have a breakout year in 2009. Products like the Forester and the Impreza helped Subaru achieve consistent year-over-year gains while the Japanese automaker continues to post stellar quality ratings through J.D. Power and Consumer Reports. And the accolades don't stop there. ...

    Review: 2009 Subaru Forester 2.5X Premium retains edge, adds smoothness
    1243958220

    Adequate dynamics, very capable, super handy. That about sums up the last ten years of the Subaru Forester. And yet – once the sportier turbocharged version put rally-bred heat under the skinny pedal, the Forester was no longer just the squishy, squeezy Official Car of Vermont.
