PostHeaderIcon 2019 Subaru Ascent 8-Seater SUV Officially Unveiled

We’ve been hearing a lot about this car, and finally last night at the Los Angeles Auto show we got to see it i production trim. The all-new 2019 Subaru Ascent is the Japanese company’s ticket to play in the large SUV segment. And they are coming out guns blazing. 

The Ascent comes with a number of features you don’t find in too many cars in this class. You can have this SUV in 7- or 8-seater configurations, and that alone puts it in a special club. Then you have the 260 horsepower BOXER engine combined with Subaru’s legendary rally-bred all-wheel-drive running gear. That translates to versatility, performance and peace of mind. And of you have the legendary reliability and affordability of the brand. All of this is blended in the 2019 Subaru Ascent with the latest safety and connectivity technologies.

Designed to appeal to dynamic families with a lot of people and cargo to haul around, the Ascent features a 2.4-liter BOXER engine mated to Subaru’s high-torque Lineartronic CVT (continuously variable transmission) and legendary Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. Everyone inside will have a good time throughout the journey, what with the 19 standard cup and bottle holders, 8 USB charging ports, 4G LTE WiFi, and three- zone automatic climate control. They will be safe too, thanks to the size of the thing and EyeSight Driver Assist Technology.

2019 Subaru Ascent EyeSight package include Automatic Pre-Collision Braking, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure and Sway Warning, Pre-Collision Throttle Management, and new EyeSight Assist Monitor (EAM) which provides a heads-up display of the EyeSight system warnings as well as system status information on the windshield of the vehicle. Blind Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross Traffic Alert are also available. Steering Responsive Headlights are standard on Limited and Touring models.

PostHeaderIcon L.A. Auto Show Preview: 2018 Infiniti QX50 & 2019 Subaru Ascent

In this installment of 2017 L.A. Auto Show Preview we take a first look at the two of the most important SUVs to be unveiled at the event. They include the new 2018 Infiniti QX50 premium crossover SUV, and the all-new and much talked-about 2019 Subaru Ascent three-row SUV. 

The Los Angeles-bound QX50 is not just an interesting in terms of its design and features – and the fact that Infiniti’s SUVs are always a head and shoulders above the competition. This bad boy is also the first production vehicle ever to feature an engine with variable compression. The new VC-turbo petrol unit is what Infiniti calls “major step in optimising efficiency and emissions of the internal combustion engine.” Some may call it the last struggles of the ICE. But anyway, the engine is just one of the good things about the QX50. Other highlights include top-notch refinement, rigidity and interior space, all-wheel drive option, and ProPilot autonomous drive.

2017 L.A. Auto Show will also see the debut of the Subaru Ascent in full production trim. The very recipe of this car ha got a lot of people already raving about how good it will be. You got a full-size SUV with the proven capabilities of Subaru off-roaders, the durability of the Japanese make, affordability, and now a lot of space and practicality. If the XV is for the young families with one or two kid, the Ascent is suitable for ones with teenagers. There’s space enough in there for them and their friends, plus their soccer practice gear.

PostHeaderIcon “The City Rallyist” Attacks The Night In A Subaru WRX STI: Video

When the sun sets, the city comes alive. The pedestrians are in bed, but street lamps and neon glow provide the backdrop as growling internal combustion monsters begin their nightly prowl. If that’s the sort of stuff you’re into, then this 2-minute, 16-second video from TeamRoad Studio is sure to delight. Shot in the South Korean capitol of Seoul, the video features the high-speed exploits of a modified blue GDB “peanut eye” Subaru WRX STI, complete with gold wheels, a massive rear wing, and a rumbling exhaust note. The Scooby looks amazing blasting around the city, flashing between the shadows in a flurry of atmospheric blow-off valve chirps.

Granted, some of the footage is sped up, and it doesn’t look like the production team broke any laws to capture the shots (maybe that little bit at the very end is an exception). Regardless, the editing really gives you a sense of speed, and the Six Star icon we all know and love is glorified to satisfaction. Good stuff, no doubt about it. We can’t wait to see what TeamRoad Studio comes up with next.

Read our full review on the 2018 Subaru WRX STI.

PostHeaderIcon Subaru Ascent

Subaru is about to launch its all-new, three-row family crossover at the 2017 L.A. Auto Show on November 28. Official specs have been kept quiet, but we know it will be larger than Subaru’s ill-fated Tribeca with more interior room. We also know its name: the Ascent. It’s clear Subaru wants a piece of the full-size crossover pie. The Forester is currently the automaker’s largest vehicle, but it only seats five and has a maximum cargo volume of 68.5 cubic feet – a far cry from what typical three-row crossovers offer.

The Ascent will ride on an expanded version of Subaru’s Global Platform. The new Impreza and Crosstrek already ride on this platform, and the rest of Subaru’s lineup will eventually follow. It’s no wonder since Subaru spent a whopping $1 Billion to develop the modular architecture. The SGP is also designed to surpass all current crash test standards by enduring stuff like a 2.7-ton SUV ramming head-on into its hood at 55 mph. Yeah. Families like safe vehicles, so the added protection will be a great selling point for the Ascent. Obviously, Subaru will appreciate the sales, especially since the Tribeca only sold 80,000 examples over its entire, decade-long life. With failure an actual possibility, Subaru is determined to get the Ascent right. Let’s see what we can expect from this upcoming crossover.

Update 11/21/2017: Subaru has released a teaser of the Subaru Ascent just days before its debut at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show. Check out the teaser section below to see it and learn more about it.

Subaru Ascent Teaser


2019 Subaru Ascent - image 746685

To date, two teasers have been released. The first was a shot of the badge on the rear hatch and the second is a near-full side view of the upcoming SUV. Based on the Subaru Ascent Concept that was shown off at the New York Auto Show, the production version will look nearly identical. However, based on this teaser, it looks like some of the sharp body lines may be toned down a bit. Besides that, the teaser shows off the same silhouette as the concept including the rear stationary glass and third row of seating. Some wonder why Subaru would bring a model like this to production while others can accept the fact that Subaru needs to get its peace of the seven-seater market. What do you think? Will the new Ascent be a success or is it just another turd in a very large and overpopulated toilet bowl?

Exterior

  • Larger dimensions means more interior room
  • Tallish ground clearance
  • Sculpted bodylines

Subaru Ascent SUV Concept Begs One Question: WHY? - image 713486

Note: 2017 Subaru Ascent concept pictured here.

“We’re hoping the Ascent Concept’s handsome lines actually translate to the production version.”

Subaru has yet to release an overview image of the production-spec 2019 Ascent. All we’ve got is a single shot of the Ascent badge affixed to the crossover tailgate. That means we’ll have to reference the Ascent’s concept version, which debuted at the 2017 New York Auto Show back in April. Thankfully, Subaru will debut the real deal at the 2017 L.A. Auto Show on November 28.

The Ascent concept is a devilishly handsome SUV with tons of style baked into its large body. Subaru designers aren’t afraid of doing big things with concept vehicles, and that shows here. Just look at that swooping beltline over those arched fenders! Typical Subaru cues are seen, too, like the C-shaped LED daytime running lights, the six-sided grille, the A-pillar window, and the black molding along the body’s lower edges.

Sadly, Subaru’s designers are also too timid to are blocked by dull bean-counters from putting such aesthetically pleasing concepts directly into production. We’ve seen it time and time again where a sexy concept is neutered into a comparatively dull shell of its former self before arriving in showrooms. Fingers crossed that doesn’t happen here, though we’re not holding our breath.

Interior

  • Seven-passenger seating
  • Three rows
  • More interior volume than the old Tribeca
  • Respectable in-dash technology

Subaru Ascent SUV Concept Begs One Question: WHY? - image 713487

Note: 2017 Subaru Ascent concept pictured here.

“Subaru will surely tone down the high-tech vibe seen on the Ascent Concept.”

While 90 percent of the Ascent concept’s exterior could easily make production, the interior is another story. Subaru will surely tone down the high-tech vibe seen here. Don’t misread us –we’d love to see the massive touchscreen with integrated knobs remain in the center stack. We’d hope Subaru will keep the fully digital gauge cluster, especially since that’s the popular thing these days. And we’d love to see the highly sculpted, multi-tiered dash and door panels in our driveway sometime soon.

So what’s definitely not making production? Well, don’t count on seeing the digital window and door lock controls. That swanky gearshift probably won’t make the cut, either. And sadly, the Range Rover Velar-like display seems a bit too cool for Subaru to actually produce. (Prove us wrong, Subi!)

What will remain in the showroom version of the 2019 Ascent is seating for seven people over three rows. That’s a given. Subaru needs a full-size family crossover. Right now, only five people can fit in Subi’s largest model, meaning growing families are forced out of the brand and onto the competition. That’s not good for Subaru’s bottom line and plans for world domination (what major automaker doesn’t have that plan?).

Drivetrain

  • Possible turbocharged 2.0- or 2.4-liter flat-four
  • CVT is very likely
  • AWD will be standard
  • Respectable fuel economy expected

Subaru Ascent SUV Concept Begs One Question: WHY? - image 712990

Note: 2017 Subaru Ascent concept pictured here.

“Expect the Symmetrical AWD system to be included as standard equipment.”

Details of the Ascent’s greasy bits are still unknown at this point. Some reports suggest Subaru will use its 2.0-liter turbocharged flat-four found in the Impreza, while others say an all-new 2.4-liter turbocharged flat-four with upwards of 300 horsepower will be had. Either way, don’t count on a flat-six like the Tribeca had or anything in an inline or V configuration. This is Subaru, after all.

Regardless of engine, it’s a sure bet a CVT will be bolted to its backside. The continuously variable transmission has gotten better over the years. Our recent test of the 2018 Crosstrek proved the CVT is nearly free of rubberbanding and offers a smooth though somewhat uninspired driving experience. A full-size family crossover isn’t built for blasting down some dirt rally course, so the calm driving experience should be a welcomed trait.

Naturally being a Subaru, the automaker’s Symmetrical AWD system will be included as standard equipment. That means all four wheels receive power all the time, though at a 60/40 torque split front to rear under normal road conditions. Under low-traction situations or when the X-Mode button is pressed, the system will divide power evenly between the front and rear differentials.

Expect fuel economy to be pretty competitive in the mid- and full-size crossover segment. That means we can expect around 20 mpg city and 27 mpg highway. Of course, these type of details should be announced at the Ascent’s debut later this month.

Pricing

Official pricing will come later, but we’d bet Subaru will start the Ascent’s MSRP around the $30,000 mark. That’s $5,000 more than the Outback and nearly $7,000 more than the Forester. Selecting premium features and options will inflate the price on higher-trimmed models, perhaps making the Ascent’s sticker price hit $45,000 when fully loaded. That would be pretty reasonable when compared to the segment.

Competition

Honda Pilot


2016 Honda Pilot - image 616641

The Pilot might be a few years old, but it’s one of the best-selling three-row crossovers in the business. It combines outright utility with comfort and style. Sprinkle on Honda’s brand image of reliability and available AWD and you’ve got family-hauling homerun.

The Pilot is powered by a 3.5-liter V-6 making 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. As mentioned, FWD is standard and AWD is optional. With all four wheels turning, the Pilot can lug a 5,000-pound trailer and regardless of the drivetrain, it will carry up to eight people – seven with the optional second-row captain’s chairs. Lower trims come with a six-speed automatic and upper trims (Touring and Elite) come with a fuel-saving nine-speed automatic.

Pricing varies wildly depending on trim and options. The base LX starts at $30,745 while the range-topping Elite starts at $47,220. Getting the Elite means everything that is normally optional is now standard. That means $47,220 is about the highest price you can pay, barring you go crazy with dealership add-ons.

Volkswagen Atlas


2018 Volkswagen Atlas - image 693391

The Atlas should be pronounced “At last” since it’s taken Volkswagen so long to enter the three-row SUV game. Thankfully, the Atlas is well-baked with tons of well-conceived features, a roomy interior, seating for seven people, and a couple drivetrain options. The Atlas also rides on familiar bones; it’s the MQB platform that also underpins seemingly every modern VW and Audi product. Interior niceties include an available digital dash, VW’s latest infotainment system, and 97cubic-feet of cargo room with the rear seats folded.

Standard power comes from a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder, but it’s relegated to lower trims with FWD. Most Atlas models come with a 3.6-liter V-6 with 276 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. An eight-speed automatic sends power to the front wheels. VW’s 4Motion AWD system is optional.

Pricing starts at $30,500, but most will skip the 2.0-liter base S model. Other trims include the SE, SE with Technology, and SEL. Opting for the V-6 pushes the base price to $31,900. For 2018, VW is offering a V-6 Launch Edition. The S, SE, SE with 4Motion, SE with Technology, SE with Technology and 4Motion, SEL, SEL with 4Motion and SEL Premium with 4Motion are available. While a bit confusing at first, the trims do make sense. Expect to by $48,490 for the V-6 SEL Platinum with 4Motion before options.

Conclusion


2019 Subaru Ascent - image 745297

It’s been a long time coming for Subaru’s new three-row crossover. The absolute disaster that was the Tribeca understandably left Subaru weary of the large crossover market, though the updates accompanying the Ascent should make folks pay attention this time around. More people room, improved looks, modern in-dash technology, and class-leading safety features should have the Ascent climbing towards the peak of full-size family crossovers. Only time will tell, however, and there are still plenty of unanswered questions. The wait won’t be long, thankfully, since November 28 should bring all the juicy details. Check back to TopSpeed for that.

  • Leave it
    • Might be underpowered compared to the competition
    • CVT will limit towing
    • Will it overcome the Tribeca’s failure?

PostHeaderIcon Batteries and Motors: Even the Subaru WRX STI is Gonna Get ‘Em

Evs and hybrids are slowly taking hold and, wouldn’t you know it, an exec from Subaru just hinted that the next Subaru WRX STI could go hybrid as well. That’s the word from David Dello Stritto – Subaru’s Sales and Market Manager in Europe – who told Autocar that the current 2.5-liter, whistling, boxer-four just “can simply not exist in the future.” He didn’t go into detail other than that, really, but did say that “Subaru is looking at market developments” and will “make its future plan with this information in mind.” Does it mean that the Subaru WRX STI as we know it will perish after the end of its current lifecycle? Nope; and all of this hybrid talk could be a very good thing.

See, that 2.5-liter, turbocharged mill is just kind of old school and a little dirty. To put it simply, it can’t keep up with emissions regulations that are getting stricter by the minute (not literally, but they might as well be.) This has caused a number of cars to be axed altogether, and if that happened to the WRX and STI, then you know they would probably come back as an SUV as Mitsubishi has done with the Eclipse name. Thank God that’s not going to happen here. Instead, rumor has it that the next WRX STI, which will be built on the same Global Platform that supports the new Impreza, will get its go-juice from a 2.0-liter boxer engine up front (turbo of course) and a motor-driven axle out back, something that would allow Subaru to maintain its all-wheel-drive setup and keep up with those pesky regulations to are just determined to kill anything and everything that we find fun and enjoyable. Keep reading for more of the good stuff.

Motor-Driver Rear Axle… Are You Serious?


2018 Subaru WRX STI - image 702498
“What we could end up seeing is a WRX STI with more power than before and better, more predictable torque distribution”

Yes; Yes, I am. Of course, there’s no telling how well that kind of system will compete against the current Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive system, but I wouldn’t hold my breath expecting Subaru to drop the ball. They saw firsthand what happens when a brand lets their resident rally car go stale – just look what happened to the Mitsubishi Lancer… sigh. Something tells me that a small battery – just big enough to keep a constant flow of juice to that rear motor with regenerative charging from the brakes and flywheel – will be paired with a decently powered motor. What we could end up seeing is a WRX STI with more power than before and better, more predictable torque distribution… if that’s something you could really beat on the current STI anyway.

Either way, the good news is that the WRX and STI names aren’t going anywhere, and they damn sure aren’t getting stuck onto the ugly duckling with a height problem (Sorry Mitsubishi Eclipse and EVO badges, you deserved better.) The next WRX and STI should arrive for the 2020 model year riding proud on that new Subaru Global Architecture that should make them more rigid and safer than ever. And, even better yet, they will take design cues from the Viziv Performance Concept that Subaru showed off not that long ago. Of course, it won’t have those painfully sharp lines or all that carbon fiber, but we can sure hope, right?

PostHeaderIcon Subaru S208 WRX STI Limited Edition up for grabs!!

The Subaru WRX has been on the market for about 25 years now, and Subaru has made constant updates to the model over the years.
This time, Subaru has launched the Subaru S208 WRX STI Limited Edition at the Tokyo Motor Show. Will it be enough to take on its chief rivals – the Honda Civic Type-R, VW Golf GTI, and Ford Focus RS? Let’s find out:


Subaru S208 WRX STI Limited Edition up for grabs!! - image 734536
“The roof and rear spoiler get carbon-fiber treatment”

Now, what makes this limited-edition beauty special? Well, to start off, the roof and rear spoiler get carbon-fiber treatment which takes the handling up by a notch. On the braking front,18 inch ventilated disks by Brembo have been deployed. Along with it, 24 additional horses have been added to the existing 305 under the hood.

The interior gets a set of Recaro seats with black leather and silver stitching, among other changes. There is also a performance muffler, front under-spoiler, and air vents on the rear bumper to aid aerodynamics. But, there is a catch – there are going to be just 450 of these beasts for the taking!

The Subaru WRX made its debut in 1992 when the WRX series was first launched. It had one of the best rivalries in the performance sedans segment with another legend – the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo. Two decades later, the WRX has somewhat lost its charm to the likes of VW Golf R, Ford Focus RS, and Honda Civic Type-R; to name a few. Despite this, the car is still desired by many around the globe.

Our Take


Subaru S208 WRX STI Limited Edition up for grabs!! - image 734538
“This car doesn't stand-out from the competition, save for the legacy and long history associated with it”

Showcased at the Tokyo Motor Show a couple of days back, the S208 does seem drool-worthy. But, the limited numbers up for production are a clear indication of the hefty price tag this car will carry. This car doesn’t stand-out from the competition, save for the legacy and long history associated with it. The performance sedan market is flooded today, and there are numerous rivals the S208 will have to take on. And, to make matters worse, this Subaru will serve only to the Japanese market. It is just a matter of time before we know if the S208 was worth the hype or a dud as most people expect it to be.

PostHeaderIcon 2017 Subaru WRX STI Final Edition Marks The End of an Era

It’s true, when Subaru fans get to write to their remembrance of the things past they will mark today as the day the WRX STI died in the UK. Well, it’s not completely deceased yet. But with only 150 Subaru WRX STI Final Edition models to go, it’s as good as dead. 

Fear not though, and do not despair, because just as the Impreza dies and gave way to the WRX STI, there will emerge from the ashes of the outgoing a new yobmobile. But if you are obsessed with the current version make sure you have £33,995 ready and visit a dealership near you to get a Subaru WRX STI Final Edition.

As befits a swansong of such considerable importance, Subaru WRX STI Final Edition comes with a number of upgrades that set it apart from the rest of the pack. The Multi-Mode Driver’s Control Centre Differential (DCCD) is fully electronic in this model, which they say, combined with the new19 inches which that house new larger Brembo brakes, remarkably improves cornering abilities of the car.









Visually, the front bumper is revised with lower grille blacked out and a geometric textured panel, and of course there are Final Edition badges all over. Inside, high gloss black inserts are added to the instrument panel, gear stick surround, door panels and steering wheel with red stitching and red seatbelts. You also get heated front seats, larger 5.9” multi-function display, DAB radio, and reversing camera.

PostHeaderIcon Add Some Boost To Your Pumpkin With This Subaru WRX STI Carving Pattern

So then, it’s Halloween. What’s your costume gonna be? Does it happen to be a blue and gold jump suit and helmet combo with the name “Solberg” or “McRae” printed across it? If that describes you, then this is what your pumpkin should look like. Offered as a free downloadable and printable PDF from SubaruPartsPlus, this carving design will turn that boring orange squash on your porch into a turbocharged rally star, announcing to the whole neighborhood your undying allegiance to the Six Star brand.

Granted, that rumbling aftermarket exhaust you installed probably does the same thing, but either way, this is a great way to inject your spooky holiday with a little AWD goodness. We recommend adding a rooster tail of pumpkin seed “gravel” shooting out the back for extra artistic bonus points. That said, if you really wanted to scare your fellow Subaru enthusiasts, maybe a carving of a head gasket would be more appropriate…

2017 Subaru Viziv Performance Concept

Subaru just revealed its latest ultra-sleek concept model at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show. Dubbed the Viziv Performance (Viziv is shorthand for “Vision for Innovation”), this Scooby is the latest in a series of concept cars to bear the Viziv name, rocking an aggressive exterior and tons of speedy visual cues. This is also the very first four-door sedan to come from the concept line, which can only mean one thing – this is what Subaru’s designers imagine for the next WRX. The emphasis is on driving fun and attention-grabbing details, both of which the Viziv Performance manages to accomplish, at least on paper. So then, what does it say about the brand’s favorite rally star? Read on for details.

Continue reading to learn more about the 2017 Subaru Viziv Performance Concept.

Exterior

  • Design is all angles and chiseled geometry
  • Flared fenders and carbon bits
  • Longer, lower, and wider than a WRX

Subaru Viziv Performance Concept - image 740445
“It’s all angles and chiseled geometry, an amalgamation of black and silver that manages to mate sportiness and futuristic vibes in a single, exciting package. ”

As is the case with most concept cars, the Subaru Viziv Performance Concept’s greatest strength lies in its exterior design. It’s all angles and chiseled geometry, an amalgamation of black and silver that manages to mate sportiness and futuristic vibes in a single, exciting package.

Subaru says the aesthetic uses the “Dynamic x Solid” design philosophy, with inspiration drawn from the brand’s most “iconic” models. These include the Legacy, Impreza, and WRX, symbolizing “superior Subaru driving performance.”

The look is mean and low and wide, with flared fenders adding a good deal of aggression to the whole package. As is expected of just about every performance model on the market these days, carbon fiber makes a cameo appearance, finding its way to the bumpers, fenders, and roof, which adds a tasty composite weave to offset the brighter silver body panels.

In back, the rear diffuser seems to divide the tail in half, occupying the lower section of the car with even more angles and further motorsport-inspired goodness. A large center stop lamp also enhances the performance cues, while the upper taillights stretch from fender to fender, adding to the car’s natural visual width. The rear diffuser also houses a quartet of rounded exhaust pipes, set at an angle that brings the car even closer to the ground visually.

In the nose, the Subaru Viziv Performance Concept gets a six-sided, three-dimensional grille that looks similar in shape to the current WRX grille, albeit a bit larger and with a cool-looking lighting element along the surround. Below the central intake are aero elements finished in black, while “hawkeye” headlight housings take up positions on the periphery.

Subaru says many of these visual cues are meant to mimic that ballsy powertrain and drivetrain under the hood, with the headlights giving a nod to the boxer engine design and the flared fenders added as a nod to the symmetrical AWD system.

The requisite hood scoop finishes it, mounted towards the windshield and finished in black.

Interestingly, Subaru gave us a complete breakdown of the Viziv Performance Concept’s exterior dimensions, and naturally, we should compare them to the current WRX to see if we can glean any sizing changes planned for the upcoming WRX. You can check out the specifics below, but long story short, the Viziv is a bit longer, much wider, and a little lower – all to be expected from a showy concept car, but perhaps it’s telling of what’s to come for Suby’s most beloved performance model.

Interior

  • Large touchscreen in the dash
  • Seats up to 5 passengers
  • Next-generation driver assist tech

“If we were to venture a guess about the details, we’d argue the redesigned interior of the 2017 Subaru Impreza would probably provide a few hints as to the upcoming WRX’s cabin.”

While Subaru declined to provide tons of details on the Viziv Performance Concept’s interior layout design, the automaker did mention that seating capacity was capped at 5 passengers, much like the current-generation Impreza and WRX. What’s more, we can pick out what appears to be a large digital infotainment screen in the center console.

Sounds about right, but if we were to venture a guess about the details, we’d argue the redesigned interior of the 2017 Subaru Impreza would probably provide a few hints. Six-sided shapes for the cluster gauge and upper instrumentation readout echo the shape of the grille, while a three-spoke, multi-function steering wheel gets grippy hand bolsters and some nice contrast stitching. Further contrast stitching is added to the dash, while a large touchscreen takes up residence in the center console.

“we can assume it’ll get stuff like advanced adaptive cruise control, automatic braking, smart automatic transmission shifting, and similar features”

Not terribly exciting stuff, we know. That said, the Viziv does offer up some tasty tidbits on possible technology features Subaru has in the works. Basically, the automaker foresees ever-greater autonomous driving assist integration in the near future, and in response, the Viziv comes with the next-generation EyeSight system, the brand’s branded tech suite meant to enhance both driving enjoyment and peace of mind.

Incorporating both radar and GPS systems, we can assume it’ll get stuff like advanced adaptive cruise control, automatic braking, smart automatic transmission shifting, and similar features, all of which should make the next WRX both more efficient and safer. Look for Subaru to introduce this next-gen system into its production lineup sometime around 2020.

Drivetrain

  • Boxer engine configuration
  • Likely the same turbo 2.0-liter as the current WRX
  • Large 20-inch wheels

Once again, Subaru seems a bit cagey when it comes to revealing details on the Viziv Performance Concept’s engine configuration, but in all honesty, we can pretty much tell exactly what it’s got going under that hood scoop without any official confirmation.

For starters, Subaru admits to using the traditional boxer engine configuration, a platform the Six Star brand has “honed over more than five decades of development.” In the current WRX, this amounts to a turbocharged and intercooled 2.0-liter flat-four powerplant, hewn from aluminum and able to produce upwards of 268 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Routing the power to the ground is a six-speed manual transmission, as well as the same standard symmetrical AWD system Subaru is famous for.

“Subaru says the Viziv Performance uses its traditional boxer engine configuration, which, in the current WRX, produces upwards of 268 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque.”

All told, expect nearly identical performance numbers as before, with around 5 seconds required in the 0-to-60 mph sprint and a top speed of 144 mph.

Interestingly, Subaru says the concept’s tire size is measured at 245/40R20, a huge upgrade over the standard WRX’s 17-inch rollers. If carried into production, it would be the biggest wheels the WRX has ever got from the factory by a long shot.

Conclusion

All told, the Viziv is an exciting look at one of our all-time favorite performance vehicles, the Subaru WRX. While we would have liked it if Subaru dropped us a few more hints on what to expect from the drivetrain and powertrain (odds are it’ll look more or less identical to the current model), we think the exterior styling is a solid step forward for the brand.

“Any and all hope that the concept’s aesthetic might make it to production should be tempered with the fact that Subaru has a nasty habit of offering up gorgeous designs that never actually get put to use. ”

That said, any and all hope that the concept’s aesthetic might make it to production should be tempered with the fact that Subaru has a nasty habit of offering up gorgeous designs that never actually get put to use. Take for example the Impreza 5-Door Concept that dropped in 2015 at the last Tokyo Motor Show. We loved it, as did most other enthusiasts, but in the end, the production version just didn’t have the same flair or snap to it. Or you could take the Impreza Sedan Concept from the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show, or the XV Concept from the Geneva Motor Show in 2016… the list goes on and on.

Either way, we like the look. Just maybe put it to good use this time, eh Suby?

  • Leave it
    • Production version will likely look way different
    • No interior design details
    • No specs on the engine and drivetrain likely means carryovers for both

2017 Subaru Viziv Performance Concept

Subaru just revealed its latest ultra-sleek concept model at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show. Dubbed the Viziv Performance (Viziv is shorthand for “Vision for Innovation”), this Scooby is the latest in a series of concept cars to bear the Viziv name, rocking an aggressive exterior and tons of speedy visual cues. This is also the very first four-door sedan to come from the concept line, which can only mean one thing – this is what Subaru’s designers imagine for the next WRX. The emphasis is on driving fun and attention-grabbing details, both of which the Viziv Performance manages to accomplish, at least on paper. So then, what does it say about the brand’s favorite rally star? Read on for details.

Continue reading to learn more about the 2017 Subaru Viziv Performance Concept.

Exterior

  • Design is all angles and chiseled geometry
  • Flared fenders and carbon bits
  • Longer, lower, and wider than a WRX

“It’s all angles and chiseled geometry, an amalgamation of black and silver that manages to mate sportiness and futuristic vibes in a single, exciting package. ”

As is the case with most concept cars, the Subaru Viziv Performance Concept’s greatest strength lies in its exterior design. It’s all angles and chiseled geometry, an amalgamation of black and silver that manages to mate sportiness and futuristic vibes in a single, exciting package.

Subaru says the aesthetic uses the “Dynamic x Solid” design philosophy, with inspiration drawn from the brand’s most “iconic” models. These include the Legacy, Impreza, and WRX, symbolizing “superior Subaru driving performance.”

The look is mean and low and wide, with flared fenders adding a good deal of aggression to the whole package. As is expected of just about every performance model on the market these days, carbon fiber makes a cameo appearance, finding its way to the bumpers, fenders, and roof, which adds a tasty composite weave to offset the brighter silver body panels.

In back, the rear diffuser seems to divide the tail in half, occupying the lower section of the car with even more angles and further motorsport-inspired goodness. A large center stop lamp also enhances the performance cues, while the upper taillights stretch from fender to fender, adding to the car’s natural visual width. The rear diffuser also houses a quartet of rounded exhaust pipes, set at an angle that brings the car even closer to the ground visually.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Subaru Outback Earns IIHS Top Safety Rating

If you needed one more reason to consider the 2018 Subaru Outback as your next family crossover, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has it for you. The Outback has earned the highest possible rating of “Good” for IIHS’s new passenger side small overlap crash test. The model also has a Top Safety Pick+ certificate from the institute. 

So you can add safety to the list of good things about the 2018 Subaru Outback, a list that also includes practicality, durability, and reasonable price. Starting at $25,895, the Outback stands a head and shoulders above the competition thanks to Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, X-Mode, Hill Descent Control, Hill Holder and generous 8.7-inches of ground clearance. It’s an urban SUV with actual utility functions. And it looks so unpretentious and cool, compared to most other choices in this segment.

Safety wise, the Outback, like all 2018 Subaru models, is equipped with EyeSight Driver Assist Technology and LED Steering Responsive Headlights. These are the features that awarded it the 2017 Top Safety Pick+ from IIHS. Crosstrek, Forester, Impreza, WRX, and Legacy share the same accolade with the Outback.

“In the test of the Outback, the passenger’s space was maintained well, with maximum intrusion of 4 inches at the right edge of the toepan,” said Becky Mueller, IIHS Senior Research Engineer. “The safety belt and front and side curtain airbags worked together to keep the (crash test) dummy in place, and measures taken from the dummy showed there would be a low risk of injury in a similar real-world crash.”

PostHeaderIcon Subaru Dresses up its Three Favorite Models for an Outing in Tokyo

Subaru’s ho-hum presence at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show – only the new Impreza made the trip to Germany – may have been a disappointment for fans of the brand, but not all is lost because the Japanese automaker will be out in full force at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show in October. We already know that it plans to unveil a special edition version of the BRZ at the event. Now, it’s adding to its list of debuts by rolling out three “concept” versions of its three best-selling models: the Impreza, XV, and Outback.

Truth be told; none of the concepts are actual concepts, at least in the traditional way we know of concepts. Instead, they’re more like “special variants,” each coming with unique exterior and interior features that none of their standard counterparts feature. Subaru even says as much, describing them as previews of what it calls the “new Subaru story,” presumably a launching pad for what future versions of these models could look like. The company hasn’t made it clear if it plans to roll out these models in limited edition numbers like the BRZ STI Special Edition, but don’t be surprised if it does, especially if the public reacts to it as favorably as Subaru hopes.

Continue after the jump to read the full story.

What should we know about these three vehicles?

If you’re imagining that these concepts resemble the Subaru Viziv Concept, prepare yourselves to be disappointed. The three cars are actually more production in design, albeit with a few design upgrades that create a little bit of differentiation between them and their standard counterparts.

“The real highlight of this concept is Subaru’s off-road treatment of it”

Let’s start with the XV first, which Subaru is officially calling the “XV Fun Adventure Concept.” Of the three concepts, this is the one that appeals to me the most,
mostly because it finally showcases the XV the way I always envisioned it being: off-road capable. The yellow exterior is a nice touch and the XV isn’t the only concept that received it. But its body color isn’t the real reason why I’m digging this interpretation so much. The real highlight of this concept is Subaru’s off-road treatment of it. It gets new cladding on a number of sections, including the front fascia, side fenders, and the rear diffuser. There’s also a bike rack on the roof and a new set of off-road of tires. Look a little closer and you’ll also notice that the XV’s ride height appears to have been raised slightly, presumably to hammer home the point of it being fully capable of getting down and dirty in less-than-ideal road conditions. It’s unclear if Subaru gave the concept any interior upgrades and since there are no interior photos at this point, your guess is as good as mine.

Subaru XV Fun Adventure Concept

Next up is the Impreza, or as Subaru calls it, the “Impreza Future Sport Concept.” Similar to the XV Fun Adventure Concept, the Impreza gets the full-on mustard yellow body treatment, a color that Subaru seems to have no issue doling out on its vehicles. I don’t mind it personally because I’ve always enjoyed Subaru’s attempts at injecting more personality out of their cars.

“The Impreza gets the full-on mustard yellow body treatment, a color that Subaru seems to have no issue doling out on its vehicles”

As far as the Impreza Future Sport Concept goes, the yellow body is complemented by a sportier look that Subaru achieved by installing redesigned front and rear bumpers, adding aesthetically aggressive centrally mounted exhaust tips, and going for the complete blacked-out treatment on the wheels. Smoked-out taillights and a unique LED light fixtures on the front fascia complete the concept’s attempt at creating a future design treatment of one of Subaru’s most popular models. Once more, there are no interior photos of the Impreza Future Sport Concept so, at this point, it’s best to wait for the car’s official debut in Tokyo to see if there are things in the cabin worth mentioning.

Subaru Impreza Future Sport Concept

Last but definitely not least is the Subaru Outback, which really is the outlier of the three because it’s technically not a concept, not even by the loose standards we’ve attributed to both the XV Fun Adventure Concept and the Impreza Future Sport Concept. On the bright side, the Outback does get some exclusive treatment in both the exterior and interior, including a new front grille and a new set of wheels in the body. Inside, Subaru decked out its resident mid-size SUV with Ultrasuede seats and panels, dark embossed silver accents, and on the tech front, a new eight-inch display that’s equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Like I said, none of these concepts appear to have production futures written all over them. That’s not to say that Subaru won’t change its mind because it could still happen. Just don’t expect it to happen anytime soon.

PostHeaderIcon Subaru WRX STI S208

Subaru is going all-out at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show. It’s bringing three “concept” cars to show off design plans for the future. It’s bringing a special edition BRZ that’s been infused with STI know-how. It’s also bringing the WRX STI S208, a special edition version of the performance sedan that’s dripping in aesthetic and aerodynamic upgrades. It, too, is limited to just 450 units and will be only be sold in Japan, but that’s ok because we do have something of similar ilk in the form of the WRX STI Type RA.

Most of the improvements featured in the S208 revolve around the goal of making the sedan lighter and more powerful than its predecessor, the S207 that Subaru released in limited quantities (only 400 units) back in 2015. It does look like the automaker accomplished that goal because it’s touting the S208 as having an “improved engine output” compared to the S207, among other notable features. As far as a release date is concerned, there’s been no indication of that from Subaru, though we can at least expect to hear more details about the new performance sedan when it makes its debut in Tokyo next month.

What makes the Subaru WRX STI S208 special


2018 Subaru WRX STI S208 - image 733618

If you’re the type who enjoys the experience of driving a Subaru WRX STI, the limited edition S208 is going to be a must-have vehicle. Not only does it receive plenty of stylistic enhancements, it also gets important aero bits that provide needed improvements to the performance sedan’s driving credentials. Before we get too caught up in what these changes could mean for the car, let’s dive first into what the upgrades actually are.

“The exterior of the car received a good amount of them, none more important it seems than the roof, which is now made entirely from carbon fiber”

The exterior of the car received a good amount of them, none more important it seems than the roof, which is now made entirely from carbon fiber. Care to venture a guess why Subaru decided to go the carbon fiber roof route for the S208? All in the name of weight savings, folks! Compare the standard WRX STI with the S208 and you’ll also notice a few subtle tweaks, including the presence of a front lip spoiler on the latter, a different configuration for the air intakes, and a blacked out wheels and mirror caps, and a massive rear spoiler at the back.


2018 Subaru WRX STI S208 - image 733619

There is one photo of the S208’s interior and while it doesn’t reveal much, we do get a good look at the black sports bucket seats with white trim and the predominantly black interior to go along with it. That’s about it.

“Since this is a Japan-exclusive, the S208 is expected to have the same 2.0-liter turbocharged boxer engine sitting underneath that hood”

Now about the engine. Since this is a Japan-exclusive, the S208 is expected to have the same 2.0-liter turbocharged boxer engine sitting underneath that hood. The only difference is that the limited edition model will pack more power compared its predecessor. Subaru hasn’t said the actual figures, but let the S207’s output serve as a guide on what we can at least expect out of the S208. The 2015 limited edition carried 323 horsepower and 328 pound-feet of torque, an increase of around 20 horsepower and close to 30 pound-feet of torque over the standard model at that time. Using those numbers as a baseline, expect the S208 to have somewhere in the vicinity of 350 horsepower and around the same amount of torque. Perhaps around 360 pound-feet? Either way, the WRX STI S208 isn’t arriving in Japan to be a sheepish excuse of a performance sedan. It’s arriving ready to unleash holy hell on whoever gets in its way.

“Expect the S208 to have somewhere in the vicinity of 350 horsepower and around the same amount of torque”

Last, but certainly not least, is the work on the sedan’s suspension – something that Subaru and STI worked together to improve in order to get the most out of the car’s driving capabilities. The S208 is not going to be the most powerful car in the world, but what it lacks in outright straight-line speed, it should more than make up for in top-shelf cornering.

Power aside, what was the WRX STI S207 like?


2016 Subaru WRX STI S207 Limited Edition - image 653302

I’ve mentioned the Subaru WRX STI S207 a handful of times already, but here’s for a few bits of information about the car for those who still aren’t familiar with it. In addition to what I’ve already mentioned, the S207 was also offered with a choice of four colors: Crystal Black Silica, Crystal White Peal, WR Blue Perl, or Sunrise Yellow. The last of these colors – Sunrise Yellow – was limited to just 100 units of the 400 total units of the S207.

Aesthetics aside, the WRX STI S207 also received Bilstein front struts, rear dampers and coil springs, a new mesh front grille, larger front under-spoiler, metallic side sill moldings, and a new rear bumper. The interior also received goodies of its own, including a unique instrument panel, an engine switch button, shift knob, and revised Recaro heated front bucket seats.

Just like the S208 that’s come after it, the S207 was also a Japan-exclusive.

Customers in the US aren’t left out, right?

Well, we’re not getting the S208, but we did receive the WRX STI Type RA, a different special edition take for the WRX STI that included numerous upgrades, including a power bump courtesy of a new cold air intake, a high flow performance exhaust, beefier pistons, and a remapped ECU.

Before we talk about all that technical wizardry, it’s important to mention that the Type RA was also the recipient of aesthetic and aerodynamic upgrades like Cherry Blossom Red accents around the front grille and the rear bumper cover, along with an STI under spoiler mounted at the front. In addition, the badges, side mirror caps, and antenna have been painted in black. It also received Recaro seats in the interior and individually numbered plaques on the center console that denote the a specific unit’s place among the 500 units that Subaru built of the special edition sedan.


2018 Subaru WRX STI Type RA - image 725639

Now about that power upgrade. Since the WRX STI Type RA is a US release, it came with a bigger 2.5-liter turbocharged four cylinder engine. That said, its output only reached 310 horsepower and 290 pound-feet of torque, slightly lower than the figures achieved by the S207 from 2015. Worse, the Type RA was even overshadowed by the WRX STI Type RA NBR Special, a race-spec version that featured a 2.0-liter turbo boxer unit that was good for a staggering 600 horsepower. This was the same model that plowed the Nurburgring on its way to a lap time of 6:57.5-lap time, besting the Porsche Panamera Turbo by a ridiculous 41 seconds.

PostHeaderIcon Subaru WRX STI S208 Set for Tokyo Motor Show Debut

Subaru announced their lineup for the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show (October 27- November 5). They are coming with a large display of production and concept cars, one of which is this Subaru WRX STI S208. This bad boy is said to be one of the hottest WRX models ever created with exclusive motorsport-inspired features. 

While details and specs of 2018 Subaru WRX STI S208 are ye to be revealed, the company has let us know the S208 has a limited production run of just 450 units. And just like the new BRZ STI Sport, the sedan too will be sold by lottery so as to create some extra buzz. Among the main features of the S208 there is a carbon fiber roof which results in lower center of gravity, thus improving handling. It also looks quite cool, especially when combined with the racing aero kit including front spoiler lip, side skirt, and rear wing. Unique chassis and suspension tune and an exclusive interior are among the other highlights of the S208.

Also on display in Tokyo Auto Show next to Subaru WRX STI S208 we have the VIZIV Peformance Concept which is a sleek coupe, Outback Limited Smart Edition with high-end exterior and interior appointments, Subaru XV Fun Adventure Concept with off-road goodies, and Impreza Future Sport Concept.

Through the vehicles on display and its entire booth, Subaru will showcase the embodiment and future vision of the Subaru distinctive value of “Enjoyment and Peace of mind”, and provide visitors with an experience that will bring smiles to their faces. A number of concept cars will be exhibited, with Subaru VIZIV Peformance Concept taking center stage. The model expresses the enjoyment of driving by adopting a sports sedan style based on Subaru’s shared design philosophy of “DYNAMIC x SOLID”, while realizing its future vision for safety with advanced driver-assist technology, centered on Subaru’s original EyeSight driver-assist system. Subaru will also premier new retail models, and exhibit the models that will race in the Super GT series.The new retail models that will premiere at the show are the S208 (only 450 units available, sale by lottery), based on the WRX STI, and the SUBARU BRZ STI Sport (Cool Grey Khaki edition only limited to 100 units, sale by lottery). With the display of these two models, the company will promote Subaru’s distinctive “enjoyment” of driving, and continue the enhancement of the STI brand outlined in the product strategy in its mid-term management vision.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Subaru BRZ STI Sport to Be Sold by Lottery!

Behold, there is a new edition of the BRZ sports car out, and this one’s the weirdest yet. Well, OK, the car itself isn’t that weird. It’s actuallyone of the coolest BRZs to date. But the way they are going to sell this new Subaru BRZ STI Sport is certainly wacky. 

Limited to 100 units, the 2018 Subaru BRZ STI Sport will be sold through lottery. To have a chance of buying one you are going to have to have to register at your local dealer (from October 25) for the lottery and then keep your gingers crossed while you wait for the results. We could understand if they did this with a Bugatti or a hyper Ferrari. But a Subaru? It’d better be damn good.

So is it? Well, if you are still hoping that Subaru would launch a more powerful version of the BRZ, keep on hoping. This new edition, too, benefits only from cosmetic upgrades. The STI treatment does, however, bring some cool stuff to the table. You get ‘Cool Grey Khaki’ exterior color, complemented with black STI wheels, STI aero parts and accents. The contrast gives the Subaru BRZ STI Sport a more aggressive and purposeful look. The rear wing, especially, is going to sit pretty well with BRZ fans. To be fair the car also get some suspension and chassis tweak for extra rigidity. But there is only one part in the standard BRZ we wouldn’t want to change, that’s the chassis. The handling sweet enough as it is.



The Subaru BRZ STI Sport aims for the ultimate “Fun to Drive” and “Pure Handling Delight” by enhancing the ride quality and handling stability of the BRZ. To draw out the maximum potential of the BRZ and take its excellent handling stability and wonderful driving comfort to the next level, Subaru and its motorsports subsidiary, STI, have collaborated in its development, setting the highest grade in the Subaru BRZ catalogue. Improved body rigidity and exclusive suspension tuning have resulted in handling performance that is at the whim of the driver, and a high quality driving feel that is commensurate with the highest-grade model in the BRZ range. In addition, fine exterior and interior exclusive for this model enhance BRZ’s appeal with its excellent ride quality.

PostHeaderIcon Subaru BRZ STI Sport Edition

The Subaru BRZ has been around for quite some time now, and it’s racked up about as many special edition models as any model that’s out on the market today. Don’t look now but it appears that Subaru isn’t done with this exercise because it’s rolling out a new SE model in time for the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show. The model is called the BRZ STI Sport, and it benefits from getting exclusive upgrades on unheralded sections of the sports car. It does, after all, wear the STI badge and we know what that means, right?

Let’s get this straight from the get-go. The BRZ STI Sport Edition does not feature any engine upgrades. It still carries the same 2.0-liter four-cylinder boxer engine that pumps out 205 horsepower and 156 pound-feet of torque. It’s adequate power for a car like the BRZ, but not enough to really make a statement. This is where STI comes in because this special edition BRZ isn’t about power gains; it’s about the thrill of the ride and the handles that go with it. A car like the BRZ is prepared to give drivers the thrill of performance driving, regardless of the amount of power it has. That’s what the BRZ STI Sport is all about, and rest assured, that kind of selling point is a big reason why the special edition sports car is expected to be a hot-seller once it gets out in the market. Only a limited number of BRZ STI Sport Edition models are expected to be released, including just 100 units of a high-spec version that will come with an exclusive paint finish.

What makes the Subaru BRX STI special


2018 Subaru BRZ STI Sport Edition - image 733648

On the surface, the Subaru BRZ STI Sport Edition looks exactly like a regular BRZ. It doesn’t have the fancy colors of the BRZ ts STI, the racing stripes of the BRZ Special Edition, or the massive rear wing of the BRZ ts. None of that matters though because the BRZ STI promotes an identity of its own, and that identity is grounded on the appeal of offering a car that puts top-of-the-line handling above all else.

“Subaru even said that only 100 units of the BRZ STI Sport Edition will get this exclusive Cool Grey Khaki color”

It still gets some vanity upgrades, particularly a bespoke Cool Grey Khaki paint finish that’s reserved for the highest-spec version of the coupe. Subaru even said that only 100 units of the BRZ STI Sport Edition will get this exclusive body color. On the aero front, the sports car also gets its own rear wing, albeit much smaller than the monstrosity that was on the 2018 BRZ ts. There are also interior upgrades to speak of, including the use of STI-branded sport bucket seats to go along with a black and red interior motif. That’s about the extent of the aesthetic features, and there are no fancy aeros to speak of, no use of premium materials, and certainly none of those plaques that don’t really do anything except remind those who see them of the car’s perceived exclusivity.


2018 Subaru BRZ STI Sport Edition - image 733647

The Subaru BRZ STI Sport Edition is, by and large, a driver’s kind of car. It’s defined largely by all the mechanical enhancements given to it. It has a more rigid body and an improved suspension tuning, the latter of which is the main reason why Subaru is touting the car as having the chops to offer drivers “pure handling delight.” It’s not the sexiest way to describe it, but for a car that emphasizes function over form, the BRZ STI Sport Edition has little time for vanity. It’s meant to be a driver’s car, and for what it’s worth, it has the makings of one.

“A lottery will take place at some point wherein winners will be randomly selected.”

Here’s the bad news though. From the looks of it, the BRZ STI Sport Edition is not coming to the US. It might not even come to Europe as it looks like the model is going to be sold exclusively in Japan. Would-be customers in Japan can actually sign up to buy one already, except that they can’t just because they were the first in line to do so. According to the automaker, a lottery will take place at some point wherein winners will be randomly selected. It’s an unusual procedure for sure, but it’s Subaru’s game so we’ll have to live with it. In any case, more details about the car and the lottery procedures are expected to be unveiled at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show in late October.


2018 Subaru BRZ STI Sport Edition - image 733646

Don’t worry, there’s a chance for us to get a “better” version of the BRZ STI Sport Edition.

I understand the feeling of disappointment that comes with getting jilted on a special edition car. The Subaru BRZ STI Sport Edition looks like it’s going to be massively fun to drive, but it’s not coming here, so that’s that. Fortunately, not all hope is lost because us here in America will get something similar, or maybe even better than the BRZ STI Sport Edition.


2018 Subaru BRZ tS - image 719522

Yes, I’m talking about the 2018 BRZ ts, the same special edition that has that can’t-miss, STI-branded carbon fiber rear spoiler. In some ways, the BRZ ts has everything you want out of the Tokyo Motor Show-bound BRZ STI Sport Edition, plus a few extra options to choose from. For instance, it’s going to be offered in three different colors, including Crystal Black Silica, Crystal White Pearl, and Subaru’s famous WR (World Rally) Blue Pearl. It also features modest aero upgrades in the form of underspoilers located in the front, side, and rear of the car. Altogether, these spoilers should be able to improve airflow, resulting in better traction and stability for the car. Since we’re here already talking up the BRZ ts, let’s not forget that it’s also getting a set of lightweight 18-inch wheels, the first such time that a BRZ is getting wheels of this size straight from the factory. Power for the BRZ ts also sticks to its stock figures so expect the same 2.0-liter four-cylinder boxer engine with 206 ponies and 156 pound-feet of twist on tap. Not great in terms of numbers, but did you expect anything more?

“Power for the BRZ ts also sticks to its stock figures so expect the same 2.0-liter four-cylinder boxer engine with 206 ponies and 156 pound-feet of twist on tap”

All that said, this is the best part about the BRZ ts. There’s no lottery involved in buying one. All you have to do is be vigilant with information regarding the car’s release date – tentatively scheduled for the early part of 2018 – and spring to action once the official information is available. Remember, Subaru is only producing 500 of these bad boys so yes, first-come, first-serve definitely applies.

PostHeaderIcon Click Mechanic Renders 7 Automakers As Star Wars Podracers

Arguably the coolest scene from 1999’s Star Wars: Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace was when young Anakin Skywalker took to the sand and battled for his freedom in a homemade podracer. Sure, the final lightsaber battle was pretty friggin’ awesome as well (Darth Maul! Double-bladed saber! Epic music!), but when it comes to high-speed CGI glory, the podracer scene is hard to beat. In fact, the folks over at Click Mechanic liked it so much, they rendered seven unique podracers as though they were built by real-world manufacturers.

The manufacturers in question all produce some kind of speedy four-wheeled machine worthy of podracer-ization, and include Ferrari, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, Ford, Subaru, BMW, and Dodge. Like their real-life equivalents, each rendering gets easily recognizable liveries, and in some cases, a few sponsorship decals as well, all of which was inspired by actual race cars (you know, from planet Earth). Which one of these wild contraptions would you bring to the Boonta Eve Classic? Let us know in the comments section!

Continue reading to learn more about real-life automakers rendered as podracers.

Ferrari


Click Mechanic Renders 7 Automakers As Star Wars Podracers - image 733306

The Prancing Horse already has a penchant for turning out some pretty crazy-looking, spaceship-esque designs, so Ferrari is a natural fit for something like this. The first thing to grab us is the rosso corsa paint color, which seems to complement the flaming engines rather well. The cockpit looks like it draws from Formula 1 (top-mounted intake) and the FXX K (rear winglets), while both UPS and Shell branding were added to the profile.

Lamborghini


Click Mechanic Renders 7 Automakers As Star Wars Podracers - image 733307

Speaking of spaceships, Lambo has traditionally met Ferrari blow for blow when it comes to creating designs destined for bedroom posters. The latest example of this is the Huracan, a V-10-powered monster that looks right at home as a podracer. Point and squirt for the win.

Aston Martin


Click Mechanic Renders 7 Automakers As Star Wars Podracers - image 733308

Aston Martin clinched an incredible victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans this year, securing a first place-win in the GTE Pro class on the final lap of the iconic race. Indeed, the British Racing Green Aston looks most at home when talking a race track, but seeing it here on the sands of Tatooine ain’t bad either. Up front is the easily recognizable Aston Martin grille, while yellow accents offset the green paint.

Ford GT40


Click Mechanic Renders 7 Automakers As Star Wars Podracers - image 733312

If that front hood vent doesn’t tip you off, the baby blue and orange Gulf livery surely will. When it comes to American-built race cars, the Ford GT40 is arguably one of the most famous, having taken the fight to the Europeans at the 24 Hours of Le Mans back in the 60’s. Which naturally leads us to ask – which would take the win on Tatooine, the Ford, or the Ferrari?

Subaru WRX STI WRC


Click Mechanic Renders 7 Automakers As Star Wars Podracers - image 733309

Dirt. Sand. Rocks. Jumps. These are the things you find in professional rally racing, a sport where Subaru has earned a huge collection of wins and championship titles. Indeed, the rally racing environment seems like the perfect primer for podracing, so we aren’t surprised to see the Six Star’s blue and gold livery making an appearance here.

BMW M1 Procar


Click Mechanic Renders 7 Automakers As Star Wars Podracers - image 733310

Back in the late ‘70s, Bimmer teamed up with Lamborghini to create a rear/mid-engine production race car, and although Lambo eventually dropped out of the agreement, BMW followed through. The result was the M1, a sexy speed wedge that eventually formed the base for the one-make Procar Championship. Providing a competitive format for well-known race drivers from a diverse range of backgrounds (sports cars, touring cars, Formula 1) to go head-to-head, the M1 Procar livery is recognized worldwide. Now, it’s going intergalactic with this podracer, which even gets a squared-off BMW kidney grille in the nose.

Dodge Charger


Click Mechanic Renders 7 Automakers As Star Wars Podracers - image 733311

The first generation of the Dodge Charger hit production back in the day for the 1966 model year, followed by a second generation in 1968. Although initially unsuccessful in NASCAR stock racing, the follow-up Charger Daytona arrived in 1969 to break new ground in the sport. In fact, the Daytona was the first car to ever break the 200-mph barrier in NASCAR. We’re not sure about the top speed in this podracer, but with that enormous blower sticking out of the hood, we’re pretty sure it won’t be slow.

PostHeaderIcon Quick Highlight – Subaru Impreza Gravel Express

I think at this point, Subaru is well established as one of the primary movers and shakers in the world of rough, rally-tough performance, mostly thanks to the turbocharged, all-four-driven, race-bred WRX. But while this mainstay of the import enthusiast culture first hit U.S. shores in the early 2000’s, older overseas slideways fans have known the joy of boosted Scoobys for much longer. Probably the most famous old school ‘Rex is the wide-hipped, be-winged 22B, a true icon in and of itself. But I’m not here to sing the praises of the 22B, at least not this time around. No, instead I want to raise awareness of something a little… weirder. Say hello to the Gravel Express, a JDM-special WRX rocking two-tone paint, a raised ride height, a giant bull bar on the nose, and a spare wheel on the hatch.

All you really need to know about this thing is right there in the name. Indeed, this odd Impreza is rocking WRX-levels of power from a carryover turbocharged 2.0-liter boxer engine and the traditional high-performance symmetrical AWD system. Unfortunately, Subaru axed the Gravel Express after just one generation, because apparently, this tasty slice of automotive awesomeness just didn’t sell as well as hoped. But the fact it was made at all is reason to celebrate, no?

On these shores, we got the much-less-interesting Impreza Outback Sport, which neglected boost in favor an all-atmosphere 2.2-liter four-cylinder, but the bones are pretty much the same. Your job, dear enthusiast, is to find an old Outback Sport, drop in a turbo 2.0-liter, lift it up, mount a bull bar up front, and put a spare wheel on the hatch. Once your task is complete, let the gravel be your guide…

PostHeaderIcon Subaru WRX STI Type RA NBR Special Goes Sub-7 Minutes At The ‘Ring: Video

While some have protested that a fast Nurburgring lap time is inconsequential in the grand scope of performance standards, it remains more or less the benchmark. And for good reason – with a mix of high-speed and low-speed corners, huge elevation changes, and plenty of opportunities to get it completely wrong, the Nurburgring is one of the most technically challenging and dangerous race tracks in the world. But that didn’t stop Subaru from building a race-ready WRX STI specifically for domination at this iconic track, and now, we’ve got some onboard footage of its record breaking run from the driver’s perspective, complete with data.

Subaru announced that it broke the ‘Ring record for sedans a few months back, besting the previous record set by the Porsche Panamera Turbo by a whopping 41 seconds. However, this is no ordinary STI – as you can see in the video, the interior is completely gutted with just a single race bucket, digital gauges, and a roll cage in place to keep it safe. Making the go is 2.0-liter turbo boxer four-cylinder at full WRC-spec, pumping out in excess of 600 horsepower. So it’s not exactly production status, but either way, watching this thing attack the ‘Ring from the hot seat is a delight all the same.
