2016 Subaru Forester

Now in its third year moved from a diligent redesign, Subaru’s small crossover has only a few changes—among them a few nifty safeguard, security, and infotainment features. We notice the Subaru Forester as such of the exceptional all-round cars in its segment—and we entrenched that judgment when we spent a few months by all of a turbocharged Subaru Forester 2.0XT across a alteration of terrains and along the way cycles.

The Subaru Forester’s simple, handsome sway manages to be new without surplus flash. Smart shoppers will notice that it excels in subtle ways that many may overlook. Among small all-wheel-drive vehicles, it’s ballpark figure fuel-efficient, but it offers salient interior volume—both for folk and their cargo. Its generally top scores on safety tests are better-known; this year it’s again an IIHS Top Safety Pick .

The 2014 redesign was hardly a broad rethink: Subaru just improved almost all of the Forester’s qualities in ways that real-life users value. It’s up to a certain point taller, a compact longer mid the wheels, and offers lavish outward visibility—in an era where too many automakers consider roof-crush standards as an excuse for abysmal backward visibility. The front end manages to be taller without seeming brutal, still the XT has a few too many different vents, lights, grilles, and accents. In general, still, we’re notable fans of Subaru’s latest, more restrained design language than we were of its cartoonish or just plain odd efforts in yesteryear years.

The 2016 BRZ

The 2016 Subaru BRZ is a true sports car—engineered for its layout and its driving experience more than comfort and utility, and aiming to be charming to the driver interested in the fundamentals, like a near-perfect weight distribution, nimble handling, and a high-revving engine. Next to the Mazda MX-5 Miata and this model’s near clone, the Scion FR-S, there’s nothing quite like it for the money.

The Subaru BRZ is simply a hoot to drive, as its steering, handling, and low-slung, seat-of-the-pants driving feel are all perfectly coordinated. A 180-degree turn away from the detached driving experience of a luxury coupe, the Subaru BRZ two-door is for drivers who want to be delighted by the act of driving, not for those who treat it like a chore.

The quick-ratio steering is communicative, and with a taut-yet-compliant suspension tune, you can read the road surface and get a sense with your hands and the seat of your pants where the Subaru BRZ’s center of mass is headed while there’s still plenty of time to adjust.

They will push something absurd, inappropriately high performance, compromised or absolutely impractical for a given consumer’s needs, and they’ll almost never encourage something that makes sense. Such as the 2015 Subaru Outback And then they’ll make up by the whole of 3.7 million reasons why the prime vehicle someone is thinking about is a inaccurate choice.

Or perchance that’s simply what I do.

And more than likely, we’ll weigh you, in muffled tones, approaching the multiple virtues of very, very boring cars.

Unless, of course, you’re facing to depart about $30,000 on an all-wheel-drive crossover, seeing that’s an atmospheric one to answer – just buy a Subaru Outback.

The New Subaru Legacy in Centerville


If you’re itching to see a lot of Subarus (and who isn’t?), go to to what place it rains and snows. All-wheel drive, standard in all Subaru models amass the Subaru BRZ sport coupe, has made Subarus dear in places like New England and the Pacific Northwest. But Subarus have evermore had something of a quirky nature, and meanwhile that may promote sales in Oregon, it has limited the Legacy from being a major player in the reasonable midsize sedan market.

But there are multiple quirks that hang for the 2016 Subaru Legacy. Chief among them is its standard all-wheel drive. True, small number competing midsize sedans tackle it, nonetheless regularly only on upper trim levels or by the whole of greater powerful engine options. It’s not only standard on the Subaru Legacy, but it doesn’t attain at the additional charge of a higher price tag or mpg figure. Another quirk is the horizontally opposed “boxer” engines (a 2.5-liter four-cylinder and a more powerful 3.6-liter six-cylinder), which have their benefits and detriments, but at the end of the day are most noteworthy for how few companies handle them. Both engines arrive exclusively with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) with steering-wheel-mounted paddle switches that attempt to simulate a manually shifted six-speed. That being said, this Subaru is definitely a great buy.

The Rabid WRX

Every time I charge a Subaru WRX, I wish one of my parents had taken some mad, top-secret spy job that would have obliged us to move to Finland when I was a kid. I could have learned the savvy of rally-style car control as a fresh lad, and in my adult life, sought askew a dangerous/rewarding/awesome career as a contestant WRC driver.

Never was that more direct than on the launch program for the new 2015 WRX, to what place Subaru pointed us down a long, practically treacherous stretch of beaten track in the tree-lined mountains of northern California. Quick elevation changes were met with blind turns and washed-out shoulders, not to point out rogue bits of snow, ice and gravel that lined the apexes of essentially every turn. Here, I couldn’t stop grinning, my co-driver and I switching between second and third gears, with precise steering inputs and watchful braking keeping us safely on the route and not plummeting nose-first into the trees. And the Subaru WRX practically devoured each inch of pavement with a brutal poise that obligated me remember why I have loved this car so darn much.

But this sort of 100 Acre Wood perfection isn’t the solo way to undergo Subaru’s beloved WRX. After a long stint of traveling back down the California coast on Highway 1, I realized that Subaru‘s line roughly this being the best-driving Subaru WRX yet wasn’t just a crowd of PR mumbo-jumbo.
