2017 Subaru XV pricing and specs

Pricing and specifications have been announced for the 2017 Subaru XV, which will launch in Australia in June.

As such, the new XV range kicks off from $27,990 plus on-road costs. The previous auto entry point was $29,240.

2018 Subaru Forester Joins The Black-out Bandwagon With Black Edition

2018 Subaru Forester joins the black-out bandwagon with Black Edition

People apparently love black-painted trim. Nissan, Chevrolet, and Honda have all recently offered special-edition packages to ditch chrome and color-coded parts for the dark hue, and Subaru is the latest to join the party. Its offering comes in the form of the 2018 Forester Black Edition.

The package is only available on the 170-horsepower, naturally aspirated, Forester 2.5i Premium. It also costs an extra $1,150. For that money, you get the following in the eponymous color: 18-inch wheels, fog light trim, badges, mirror caps, and the grille. Inside, the interior is also black. The steering wheel and shifter are leather-wrapped, and the upholstery is cloth with faux leather bolsters. The package isn't all aesthetics, though. It also comes with steering LED headlights and paddle shifters for the CVT, allowing the driver to pick from six preset ratios. The latter feature was previously exclusive to the turbocharged Forester 2.0XT.

Yet another special-edition Subaru has quietly arrived in recent weeks, with the 2017 BRZ Sports Pack special edition on sale from $36,694 before on-road costs.

Like other BRZ specials before it, the Sports Pack doesn’t add any engine upgrades over the standard car, though there are several visual and equipment upgrades to give the Toyota 86 twin a little more street cred.

2017 Subaru Liberty S-edition Revealed

The Subaru S-Edition badge has found its way to another model in the brand’s range – the 2017 Subaru Liberty.

With Subaru Australia adding just 100 examples of this slightly sportier sedan to its line-up, the car will likely be in reasonable demand – and at a cost of just $2000 over the cost of the 2.5i Premium model. That makes this version a $38,240 proposition.

The refreshed 2018 Subaru WRX starts at $27,855

Subaru has always staggered the release of new versions of the WRX and STI performance twins from that of the more pedestrian Imprezas. While the latter just received a ground-up redesign for 2017, the once and future kings of all-wheel-drive performance sedans make do with some new options and massaged over styling. Pricing for the new cars, which go on sale sometime in the next few months, has finally been announced.

Pricing for the pair is on the high-side of the competition. The 2018 Subaru WRX starts at $27,855. That nets you a 2.0-liter turbocharged boxer four-cylinder making 268 horsepower, a six-speed manual, and Subaru's symmetrical all-wheel drive with torque vectoring. For comparison, the Ford Focus ST starts at $25,650 while the Volkswagen GTI starts at $26,415. Pricing for the new Honda Civic Si hasn't been announced, but expect it to be somewhere in the mid $20,000 range.

Subaru Ascent Three-row Suv Set For 2018 Launch

Subaru Ascent three-row SUV set for 2018 launch

Subaru revealed a three-row SUV concept Wednesday at the New York Auto Show in a surprise move that signals its return to the large utility segment in 2018. Called the Ascent concept, the show car had a turbocharged boxer 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and will be revealed in production trim next fall at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

The Ascent will be built in Lafayette, Ind., and is exclusive to the North American market. It will have room for up to eight passengers, offer all-wheel drive, and will be based on a modified version of Subaru's latest global platform. A hybrid is possible on those underpinnings, but a Subaru spokesman wouldn't comment on that prospect. Subaru has not had a three-row ute since the Tribeca was killed off in 2014.
