Adventurous EV – Subaru Solterra review

Subaru Solterra Review NZ

A wee while ago we attended the (long-awaited) local launch of Subaru’s all-electric Solterra. It’s impressive of course (or should that be imprezive because the new Impreza was there too), but we wanted to take a closer look. Subaru NZ were happy to oblige.   To recap, the Solterra is a battery electric vehicle (BEV) that […]

Fast, not so furious – 2022 Subaru WRX tS review

2022 Subaru WRX review NZ

Synchronous All-Wheel Drive, boxer engine and WRC heritage, it can only be a Subaru WRX, but does the latest ‘more connected’ model still have the model’s animalistic tendencies?

The Final Curtain? – 2022 Subaru WRX 2.4TS Sedan Review

One can’t quite believe it has been eight years since Subaru lifted the lid on a new WRX. Perhaps more than any other model in the line-up, a new WRX, or “Rex” if you grew up in the nineties and noughties, is always a big deal. The fifth generation WRX has made it to Kiwi […]
