Subaru Crosstrek and WRX Earn Top Safety Honors

The Subaru Crosstrek and WRX have both earned IIHS Top Safety Pick+ awards.

Both models have been redesigned for the 2018 model year, and both qualify for the top award from IIHS when equipped with optional front crash prevention and specific headlights. In addition to earning good crashworthiness ratings across the board, the Crosstrek’s optional front crash prevention earns a superior rating. In IIHS track tests at 12 mph and 25 mph, a Crosstrek equipped with Subaru’s EyeSight system avoided collisions. It also has a forward collision warning system that meets NHTSA criteria.

A Subaru Wagon Just Won A Championship, But Not In Rallying

When you think of Subaru and motorsports, you tend to think of rallying. But here's the thing: while it dominated a decade or two ago, Subaru hasn't actually competed in the top World Rally Championship since 2008. Its latest championship comes instead in touring cars.

At the final round of the highly competitive British Touring Car Championship this weekend, English driver Ashley Sutton sealed the title driving a Subaru Levorg GT.

Ever since Subaru took the wraps off the BRZ, fans have been waiting for an STI version. While that high-performance model may never come, buyers in Japan can get their hands on a limited edition version that can at least look the part.

Called the BRZ STI Sport, this special model comes in a unique shade of Cook Grey Khaki. To go with the unique paint, Subaru has also given this special BRZ blacked-out wheels and a red interior.

Subaru WRX STI S208 Sharpens Up For Tokyo Debut

If there's one thing that Subaru fans can't seem to get enough of, it's more potent versions of the WRX STI. And that's just what the Japanese automaker has in store for the Tokyo Motor Show this year.

Called the S208, the upgraded STI builds upon the previous S207 launched in 2015. As to how, exactly, Subaru has unfortunately only given us bits and pieces, but they look promising so far.

Subaru has a whole raft of debuts in store for the Tokyo Motor Show this year. We've already brought you initial details on the Viziv Performance Concept and the BRZ STI Sport and WRX STI S208 editions... but there's more.

Subaru Previews Viziv Performance Concept And 2 Tuned Stis For Tokyo

Subaru previews Viziv Performance Concept and 2 tuned STIs for Tokyo

Subaru will be rolling deep at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show next month. The Japanese automaker has announced a number of different models that it will bring to the show, including three concepts, and limited editions of two different STI models.

At the top of the list, teased above, is the Subaru Viziv Performance Concept. This car sounds like it could be a sneak preview of a next-generation WRX, as Subaru describes it as a sport sedan that combines "enjoyment and peace of mind." The very nature of the model encourages active engagement, but Viziv Performance uses Subaru's EyeSight tech to provide advanced driver assistance. The teaser images don't give us much else to go on, but we'll keep our ear to the ground in case Subaru drops any more information ahead of the show on Oct. 25.

Watch Subaru Wrx Sti's Ripping Record Run At Nurburgring

Watch Subaru WRX STI's ripping record run at Nurburgring

As expected, Subaru had a bunch of cameras rolling when they gunned for a Nürburgring lap record attempt. The car they used was a specially honed (deep breath) WRX STI Type RA NBR Special, and it proved to be good for a 6:58.9 lap around the Nordschleife, in the hands of Richie Stanaway. Now, video material of the sedan car record run has been posted on Subaru's social media pages, and it includes a separate "Behind the Scenes" video.

The record car was built by Prodrive, and it consists of a 2017 WRX STI with a full roll cage, fitted with a WRC specification two-liter turbo engine that produces more than 600 horsepower thanks to its 75mm intake and 25 psi of boost. The transmission is also a WRC item, and its hydraulic paddle-shift setup together with an automated clutch enables shift times of 20-25 milliseconds.

The Subaru Wrx From Baby Driver Sold For Nearly $70k

The Subaru WRX From Baby Driver Sold for Nearly $70k

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 recently went to auction and sold for nearly $70k.

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 had popped up for sale on eBay.
