A brief tweet from Subaru_Active has given notice that Australian buyers will be able to pre-order the new WRX online. At this stage there’s no official comment from Subaru Australia that we’re aware of, but it seems as though the online sales approach offered for the BRZ has worked well enough to adopt it for […]

When the Subaru Impreza WRX was first launched in the early 1990s it caught the world off guard. The hot hatch market had cooled somewhat and along came this fairly basic, but very quick (for its time) all-wheel drive weapon that could, if not embarrass, take the fight up to supercars. The WRX went on […]
The freedom of the internet brings us another leaked image of the all-new Subaru WRX. This image was sourced from a, Edmunds video posted to YouTube previewing the LA Auto Show. Alas, what the interwebz giveth, the interwebz taketh away and the video has since been removed. We must thank a CarScoops reader for being […]
After seeing the leaked images revealing the 2014 Subaru WRX we thought we’d place them alongside the stunning WRX Concept we saw earlier this year. We’ll let the pictures do the talking.
Subaru revealed an official teaser image of its all-new WRX overnight (after the break), which means, of course, leaked images soon followed. It’s the leaked image you see above which, at first glance, is something of a let down after hopes soared high on the back of the 2013 WRX Concept. Although, these unofficial pics […]
Subaru Australia boss, Nick Senior, says the all-new WRX will go on sale in Australia in the first quarter next year. It’s expected the transformation from concept model (pictured) to production model will be revealed at next month’s LA Auto Show. Speaking to motoring.com.au Senior said: “I’ve had the opportunity to drive it and I […]
The lights have been turned off at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show and the mammoth task of dismantling the huge displays has begun. To recap what you may have missed here’s a selection of 120+ pics reminding you what was on show.
Crawford Performance in the US has worked its magic on the Subaru BRZee. They’re the guys who prepped Ken Block’s Gymkhana I & II WRXs. After they finished laughing at the meagre stock figures produced by the blue Toybaru they put things right to the tune of 430hp/500ft-lb (320kW/680Nm). Nice. Matt Farah from Drive went […]
A bit over a week ago the next-gen Subaru WRX was seen in circulation at the Nürburgring. Today Autocar brings word that the WRX will not be sold in the UK. The reason given by Subaru UK is a little alarming, we think. Subaru is now “primarily an SUV brand”, so says Paul Tunnicliffe, Managing […]
It’s only a couple of weeks since Subaru raised hopes that they were about to, finally, release a very nice looking WRX. Alas new, if not unexpected, evidence suggests the stunning WRX Concept could be little more than a cock tease. To be fair it’s a little hard to tell under all that camouflage, but […]
So the leaked images were bang on the money; this is the new Subaru WRX Concept, we shall call it the Sexy Rexy—there’s never really been one of those before. It was revealed a few days ago at the New York International Auto Show. We’re grateful to Subaru for providing some nice hi res pics, […]
In recent years Subaru’s design team has lost its way. They’ve been responsible for some of the most awkward looking cars for some time. Things might be on the up, though, if these images of an Impreza WRX concept are to be believed. It looks bloody good! The images have been leaked, of course, ahead […]
You can have your fancy pants limited-edition Lambo, or your stonking new LaFerrari, even the McLaren P1; we’re not really interested. The car of Geneva, for us, is the Porsche 911 GT3. That’s the one we’d like to take home and get intimate with. And so begins the second and final part of our Geneva […]
Spare a thought for driver Leigh Gotch and co-driver John McCarthy who spectacularly crashed out of Rally Canberra on the weekend. The incident happened at the notorious Mineshaft jump where discretion is usually the better part of valour. It’s fair to say Gotch made a meal of the jump, even though the in-car footage (see […]
A round of applause for Australia’s car buying public who achieved an all-time record of 1,112,032 sales in 2012. It’s only the fifth time Australians have bought more than 1 million cars in a calendar year. Last year’s results represent an overall increase of 10.3% (103,595 sales) compared with 2011. FCAI Chief Executive, Tony Weber, […]
