2009 Subaru Impreza | new car review

The Subaru Impreza is perhaps best known as a snarling rally car or for the WRX and STi versions that have been the preserve of petrolheads for many years. That reputation is well deserved, for Subaru has a rich motorsports heritage with Impreza and remains a popular choice for the…

2009 Subaru Forester | new car review

The Forester is the most modern of Subaru’s offerings at the time of writing, with the all-new edition being launched in 2008. It’s a tall SUV with permanent four-wheel-drive, which should mean it’s at least mildly capable away from the tarmac. Indeed, its name reflects its ability in the trees.…

2009 Subaru Tribeca | new car review

Tribeca is an area of New York City, but it’s also a four-wheel-drive mid-size SUV from Subaru. The Japanese manufacturer has a good record for producing 4×4 vehicles, and the Tribeca is one of its more recent additions, first introduced in 2006. The first model had, shall we say, challenging…

2008 Subaru Legacy | new car review

The Legacy is Subaru’s flagship sedan and competes in the executive mid-segment sedan category here in the Middle East. Not changed much since 2006 when it underwent the designer’s scalpel, the Legacy carries on unabated although the station wagon model has gone off the radar. The Subaru brand is quite…

2008 Subaru Outback | new car review

Japanese carmaker Subaru is a niche player in the automotive realm with a knack for selling strangely styled pieces of machinery to really specific demographics. Available in two versions – 2.0R and 3.0R – the Outback is essentially a Legacy, only 8.7 inches higher up. A city-slick, country-wise combination of…

2008 Subaru Tribeca | new car review

The Subaru Tribeca (previously called the B9 Tribeca) is a five- or seven-seat mid-size, luxury crossover SUV, based on the Legacy platform which was launched in 2007 in the Middle East. It is the Japanese company’s first vehicle to foray into the ‘proper’ SUV segment. Gone is the ‘B9’ bit…

2008 Subaru Forester | new car review

Forester is Subaru’s response to crossover vehicles such as the Volvo XC70 – although smaller than and much cheaper than the Volvo – is a highly competent all wheel drive machine. Based on the chassis of the Impreza compact, it slots itself nicely somewhere in between a car and an…

2008 Subaru Impreza | new car review

Competing in the fiercely competitive compact car segment with the likes of Toyota Corolla, Honda Civic, Nissan Sunny/Tiida, Mitsubishi Lancer and Mazda3, Subaru’s Impreza scores a point or two by being the only car in this particular class to offer All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) as standard in certain markets. Fully redesigned for…

2009 Subaru impreza | new car review

There’s no doubt that a sort of cult has built up around the Subaru Impreza, buoyed up by its rally success, the long line of ever faster turbocharged cars and the awesome all-weather performance. But the frequently overlooked Impreza these days has a little more visual punch. This time there’s…

2007 Subaru legacy | new car review

The Subaru brand is quite strong in some Middle Eastern countries like Oman, Lebanon and Syria while still struggling to make its presence felt in other countries. The Legacy was given the once over last year and for the 2007MY, the Legacy carries on in much the same vein. With…
