The 2022 Honda Civic Si May Have Lost Its Low-Price Advantage

The Honda Civic Si has never been the spec-sheet king of the entry-level enthusiast cars.

The 2022 Subaru Forester Wilderness Is An Off-Road Adventure Underdog

If the 2022 Subaru Forester Wilderness is anything, it’s an off-road underdog. It doesn’t have anywhere close to the same level of kit as “proper” off-roading machines and isn’t a rock-crawling beast.

It’s Cheaper To Import A BRZ From Canada Than To Buy One In The U.S.

Earlier this month, Subaru released pricing information for the 2022 BRZ in Canada. Its base and Sport-tech trims mirror the U.S.’s Premium and Limited configurations for features, but Canadian enthusiasts are charged considerably less for their daily drifters. So much less, in fact, that it’s cheaper to import a BRZ…Read more… Continue Reading at https://jalopnik.com

Here’s An Automotive Puzzler: Does The Subaru 360 Have A Trunk?

This doesn’t seem like the sort of question that should be difficult, but I assure you, it is.

Foreign Automakers Are Still Pretty Salty About The Proposed Union EV Tax Credit

As part of a $3.5 trillion spending bill that is still unpassed in Congress, Democrats have proposed boosting tax credits for EVs up to $12,500, with $4,500 of that for union-made electric cars. This would obviously benefit the only unionized automakers in the U.S., which are the Big Three. Other automakers aren’t so…Read more… Continue […]

This Is Basically The Entire Subaru Solterra

Subaru is really drawing out this Solterra reveal, huh? We got very green, very Subaru-type high-resolution shots nearly a month ago, which followed a name announcement and some shadowy images in May. We’ve already seen Toyota’s version of this crossover — the bZ4X — so you have to wonder why Subaru’s so committed to…Read more… […]
