Video: POV Test Drive Of Subaru BRZ tS

Here we do our tried-and-true “Look Ma! No Voiceover!” point-of-view drive of a 2018 BRZ. In our experience, the BRZ is an impressive car if you love to drive the twisties and do track days, yet you also want a usable daily driver. If, OTOH, you think a Viper is the perfect car, well this will not be your cuppa tea.

WR TV: 2015 Subaru WRX

We quickly became fans of the new WRX once we got a chance to review the car late last year. Our only regret from the time we spent with the ‘Rex was that we didn’t get a chance to capture the driving experience on the video. This week, we’re finally able to remedy that issue with this Limited trim example, which is coated in Crystal White Pearl paint.

Rumor: Subaru WRX Wagon Caught Testing

After a stint behind the wheel of the new WRX late last year, we were properly enamored with the new Subie – expect for the notable lack of a 5-door variant. At the time, Subaru told us that development costs forced them to choose between one body style or the other, and the sedan prevailed. To us, the availability of the wagon configuration of the WRX was one of the car’s strongest assets, and its absence hasn’t gone unnoticed by enthusiasts either, many of which cried foul upon discovering that the fast hauler wasn’t in the cards for 2015. But we had a strong suspicion that a wagon layout of the new WRX would eventually find its way into showrooms sooner or later, and as Automobile’s spy photographers appear to have uncovered, it looks like our hunch was on the money.

Rumor: WRX Hatchback Might Return, Subaru Says

When we drove the new 2015 Subaru WRX, we were enamored with its pugnacious 2.0-liter turbocharged boxer engine, uprated interior, great steering and exemplary handling. We were, however, less than enthused to hear that the 5-door hatchback version of the WRX had been given the ax. Turns out we weren’t alone.

Preview: 2015 Subaru WRX STI

When we drove the standard WRX in November of last year, we found it to be a great road car with incredible handling capabilities, but it perhaps lacked a little something in the sex appeal department. With the new STI model, Subaru looks to increase the WRX’s performance capabilities even more, and make the WRX more of a head turner while they’re at it.

Driven: 2015 Subaru WRX

It’s with a slight amount of trepidation that we approached the new WRX. After being wowed by the concept earlier this year at the New York Auto Show, we were a bit deflated by the final result which, while still unmistakably a rally-bred Subaru, lost quite a bit of its overt aggression in the transition to production form. What’s more, Subaru has chosen to the nix the 5-door wagon variant from the playbook and add an optional CVT transmission to the mix. Add to that the unknown commodities of the engine, chassis, suspension and brakes – all of which are new for the 2015 model – and our concerns are likely understandable. Fortunately, nearly all of that anxiety went right out the window once we got a chance to put the new ‘Rex through its paces on the twisty backroads of Napa Valley.
