The 2022 Subaru WRX is a great car… with a weird packaging decision

2022 subaru wrx

The 2022 Subaru WRX is the first WRX on the automaker’s new global platform, and it really helps the car shine. This WRX has a great chassis, strong engine, exciting steering, and an excellent interior. And if you want the most exciting version you …have to get it with a CVT? Oh well, the non-GT […]

The 2022 Subaru Forester Wilderness loves being off the beaten path

Subaru is on to something with its Wilderness lineup. This would be the more off-road focused trim lines added to existing models. It started with the Outback, and now it’s arrived on the Forester. And it’s even better than the first time we tried it. Probably because we took this one deeper into the woods. […]

Subaru Outback Wilderness – for when you need to get [very far] away from it all


Our fearless leader Jeff is taking a well-deserved vacation – the kind that involves leaving the computer at home. But fear not, the Hooniverse content machine is still hand cranking some… uh, content. Today we have a new review on our YouTube channel of a car that I’ve been very curious about myself. It’s the Subaru Outback […]

The Subaru WRX STI S209: Is it Worth It?

This is a Subaru WRX STI, and it costs $64,000. That’s if you can find one without a dealer markup (which, for the record, you can). But why would anyone spend that much on an STI? Because it’s a limited-edition version, and it’s the best STI I’ve ever driven. This is still a hard sell. […]

New Dog Hauler? 2020 Subaru Outback XT Onyx Review

The brief for this review, would the Outback make a good replacement for my wife’s Ford Edge for hauling our Irish Wolfhound. You see, while he pops up to put his front paws in the hatch area, he has to have his rear end lifted to get the rest of the way in. Drogon weighs […]

What's new on the 2018 Subaru WRX STI

Subaru is moving its fleet on over to the Subaru Global Platform. The Impreza is there, and now so is the Crosstrek. The WRX STI, however, is not there yet. This is the fourth generation of everyones favorite road-going rally car, and it might already be getting a bit long in the tooth. To address […]

First Drive: 2018 Subaru Crosstrek

Somewhere between a wagon and a sport utility vehicle lies the crossover. Most of these lean more towards the car end of the equation, but the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek injects a hefty dose of off-road utility. We sauntered over to the Badlands of South Dakota to see what the all-new Crosstrek is all about. With […]

Quick Spin: 2017 Subaru BRZ with Performance Package.

In my recent review I mentioned that you all should go and buy the Subaru BRZ because it is everything you all wanted – stick, rear-wheel-drive, fun, efficient, and affordable. I really think it is the best new car performance buy for the buck. In fact, I’m sure of it: GTI/Si/ST are wrong wheel drive, […]

First Drive: 2017 Subaru BRZ Performance Package on the track

Subaru has created an affordable, fun, rear-wheel-drive sports car and you know it by the three letters BRZ. Sure, a number of folks would like a lot more power from the thing, but that’s not coming just yet. For 2017, Subaru has updated a bit of the styling but they’ve also revised the suspension, relaxed […]

First Drive: 2017 Subaru Impreza

[Apologies for the audio on this one. We had a microphone failure, so we had to use the audio from the GoPro. I didn’t want to completely ditch the video though… so “enjoy”?] Subaru is quietly kicking ass here in the United States. The brand has seen its sales numbers rise year over year and […]
