The Subaru WRX From Baby Driver is for Sale and we Want it

If you haven’t seen the film Baby Driver, we highly suggest you go and do so. It’s overflowing with well-made chase scenes, good music and most importantly, cars – the coolest of which could now be yours.

Baby Driver opens with an epic chase scene featuring a red Subaru WRX. The car is just obscure enough to appeal to enthusiasts while remaining understated enough to be appropriate for robbing a bank. We would have loved it even if it wasn’t the star of the best chase scene in what has so far proven to be our favorite film of 2017, so you can imagine our elation when we saw it pop up for sale on eBay.

2018 Subaru Levorg Pricing And Specs: 1.6 Model Cuts Entry Cost, Sti Sport Debuts

2018 Subaru Levorg pricing and specs: 1.6 model cuts entry cost, STI Sport debuts

Australian pricing and specifications for the updated 2018 Subaru Levorg range has been announced this week, bringing a new engine option, a much sharper price of entry, and lightly revised looks.

But, there’s a catch: while the arrival of the 1.6 model opens the Levorg range up to more buyers, the company has at the same time significantly increased the price you’ll pay to step into a 2.0-litre model. More on that, further below.

2018 Subaru Impreza Gets A Minor $100 Price Increase

2018 Subaru Impreza Gets a Minor $100 Price Increase

The 2018 Subaru Impreza will start from $19,355 including destination.

The Subaru Impreza gets some minor changes for the 2018 model year, after introducing an all-new model for 2017. New automatic headlight activation, when windshield wipers are turned on, is now standard on Premium, Sport, and Limited trims. The Limited trim also receives more upscale LED headlights with distinctive “Konoji” LED daytime running lights and standard 17-inch alloy wheels.

Subaru Wrx Sti Type Ra Nbr Special Is Nearly As Fast As A Porsche 918 Spyder At The Nurburgring

Subaru WRX STI Type RA NBR Special is nearly as fast as a Porsche 918 Spyder at the Nurburgring

Subaru now claims to have the fastest sedan to circle the Nurburgring. Its (deep breath) WRX STI Type RA NBR Special finished a lap of the famed German racetrack in an incredibly fast 6:57.5. That's just half a second behind the Porsche 918 Spyder hypercar.

Of course, this WRX STI is a specially-built racecar, a rather distant cousin of the WRX STI Type RA production car that takes its name from this race car. The Type RA NBR Special is an upgraded version of the car Subaru took to the Isle of Man time trial last year, where it broke Subaru's old record. The car was built by Prodrive, and it features a 2.0-liter turbocharged flat-four made for rally use. It now makes over 600 horsepower at 8,500 rpm, which is 50 more than it made last year.

Consumer Reports Give Their Verdict On The 2018 Subaru Crosstrek

Consumer Reports Give Their Verdict On The 2018 Subaru Crosstrek

Subaru have refined their Crosstrek by launching a new generation, which feels more mature and better, overall, than its predecessor.

It adds a few rugged styling touches, such as the plastic cladding on both ends and around the wheel arches, which should protect its paint from scratches. However, don’t expect a true off-roader as, according to ConsumerReports, which took the SUV out for a short drive, its 8.7in (22cm) of ground clearance simply isn’t enough.

2018 Subaru Impreza Price Increase Just $100

2018 Subaru Impreza price increase just $100

Subaru announced pricing on the 2018 Impreza sedan and five-door. The model was all-new for 2017, riding on a new platform with new sheetmetal and interior. Since there weren't any changes for 2018, prices only jumped by $100 over the 2017 model. As with nearly all Subarus, the 2018 Impreza comes with standard all-wheel drive and a flat-four engine. 2018 models will hit dealerships sometime this fall. The Impreza-based 2018 Subaru Crosstrek starts at just a few thousand more.

The Impreza will be offered in 2.0i base, Premium, Sport, and Limited trim levels. All models come with a 2.0-liter naturally aspirated flat-four making 152 horsepower and 145 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent through either a five-speed manual or a CVT. In an attempt to alleviate some complaints about CVTs, Subaru says pre-selected gear ratios will mimic a seven-speed automatic.

But sell it has. According to Subaru representatives, it's the company's third-best-selling line, and is second in the country for compact and subcompact crossover sales (first is the Jeep Renegade).When the first-generation Subaru XV Crosstrek launched a few years ago, I was skeptical that more ground clearance and fender flares is all it would take to get more buyers.

Subaru Brumby Unlikely To Kick Retirement

Subaru Brumby unlikely to kick retirement

You don’t have to search long to find fans of the long-retired Subaru Brumby, and the Japanese brand is well aware of the little ute’s loyal following… but it likely won’t surprise you to read that a comeback is not on the cards.

Only recently, a slightly battered Brumby was auctioned for charity after a tour of duty on foodie TV show River Cottage Australia, and if you listen to our own Matt Campbell, the mini-ute was ahead of its time.

Subaru Content With Levorg Sales, But Range Growth Is Key

Subaru content with Levorg sales, but range growth is key

Subaru Australia says it is happy with the sales figures of its mid-sized Levorg wagon, despite owning only a small corner of the local market.

On the smaller side of medium, the Levorg sits alongside Subaru’s big Liberty sedan as one of the brand’s two offerings. With no Liberty wagon in the current line-up – dropped locally in favour of the jacked-up but mostly identical Outback – the Levorg fills the ‘conventional wagon’ role.
