2019 Land Rover Discovery SVX Is Not a Subaru, Debuts with 518 Horses and a Lift Kit

With this debut, Jaguar Land Rover continues its plunder of abandoned three-letter marques with the Land Rover Discovery SVX. A machine fettled by JLR’s Special Vehicle Operations (or SVO, letters once applied to a Ford Mustang) to have greater off-road capability, the SVX is essentially a lifted Disco stuffed with JLR’s supercharged, 518-hp 5.0-liter V-8 […]

2018 Subaru WRX STI: Tests Well, Needs to Complete Homework

The Subaru WRX STI is kind of like that extremely smart kid who brings home report cards with Cs and Ds littering the page. Unchallenged, he or she gets bored, strays from the path of caring, and produces uninspired results. Offered more strenuous and demanding tasks, however, the student applies him- or herself and excels. READ […]

2018 Subaru WRX, Tested in Depth: Excellent Performance, Middling Manners

The WRX might be one of the quickest and most powerful sport compacts available for less than $30,000, but it’s also one of the least civil. A loud cabin, a stiff-legged ride, and a laggy turbocharged engine are some of the WRX’s surlier traits—a legacy of its rally-car roots. Its infotainment system is antiquated, and […]

Be Humble, Sit Down: 2018 Subaru Crosstrek Priced from $22,710

Not everyone needs a Ford F-150 Raptor for their off-pavement adventures. A Subaru Crosstrek can handle way more than you’d expect—as we learned with the last-gen hatch in Iceland. The all-new 2018 Crosstrek bolsters that off-road capability at a very minor cost increase over the 2017 model. The 2018 Crosstrek rides on Subaru’s new Global […]

Tecnica International Bonanza! Subaru Announces 2018 WRX STI Type RA and BRZ tS

With Subaru’s new Impreza and its variants eating up corporate bandwidth while the next WRX is under development, one might forgive the dog-friendliest Japanese automaker (sorry, Nissan Rogue Dogue) for shining the spotlight away from its aging performance vehicles. Thankfully, sport-type heads with a penchant for World Rally Blue paint haven’t been forgotten in this, […]
