  • Subaru and Mark Higgins set a new record on Mount Washington's Climb to the Clouds

    Pikes Peak might get all the media attention, but the 'Climb to the Clouds' held over 7.4 miles of asphalt up New Hampshire's Mount Washington is even older, celebrating its centenary this year. While the first attempts took over 24 minutes to complete in steam-powered vehicles, recent competitions have been rather quicker.

    Subaru Announces New WRX S4 Sedan For Japanese Launch August 25

    A Subaru WRX with more power and performance—that’s the STI, right? And an Audi A4 with more power and performance—that’s the S4? Nope and nope. At least not in this case. Due for launch at 11:00 a.m. local time on August 25th in Japan, a new sedan dubbed “WRX...

    The Isle of Man Tourist Trophy, or TT, is a famously challenging event, populated by people who know neither limits nor fear. But while the super bike riders get all of the credit for the event’s popularity and history, Subaru has made it a place for car people, too. Earlier this month, the...

    Tommi Mäkinen Flogs 2015 Subaru WRX STI Around The Track

    When an automaker is trying to figure out which driver it should invite to test out one of its new cars, certain pro wheelers rank higher than others. If the car is the 2015 Subaru WRX STI, it makes sense to find someone familiar with that style of car. That's why Subaru of Canada invited Tommi...

    Can't make up your mind whether to go for the new 2015 Subaru WRX or step up to the 2015 Subaru WRX STI?

    2015 Subaru WRX Video Road Test

    The new 2015 Subaru WRX--it's a fanboy's dream. It throws off hundreds of turbocharged horsepower, and serves up awesome grip with some of the best all-wheel-drive hardware on the planet. It also looks like an aftermarket tuner job--on purpose--and comes with a CVT. So, are the Internet trolls...

  • 2015 Subaru WRX STI  -  First Drive  -  February 2014

    Is the 2015 Subaru WRX STI worth the $8k premium over the WRX? And does it remain one of the most capable performance cars on the market, short of exotic-car compromises (and price tags)? Those questions seemed straightforward enough. But after spending most of a day with the new STI, first over back roads in California's Monterey Peninsula, and then out for hot laps on Laguna Seca, we found that the key questions were more complex than that—more like, how does the WRX STI fit into the performance-car market today? I'd put the WRX through the paces of familiar test roads just a week...

  • 2015 Subaru WRX

    The 2015 Subaru WRX didn’t turn out to be the rocket we’d been hoping for ever since we laid eyes upon the stunning concept version that previewed the car. Its styling is still reminiscent of the Impreza on which it’s based and its performance, in terms of both speed and efficiency, isn’t boosted much over the outgoing model. Going some way towards explaining this is the man that oversaw its development, Masuo Takatsu. Speaking in the video above, the Subaru engineer outlines the development goals for the 2015 WRX. For Takatsu, the most important thing when developing...
