More new Subarus coming

Word has surfaced that starting in 2016 Subaru will be producing the redesigned four and five-door Impreza. The redesigned Impreza will be produced at the Subaru Lafayette Indiana plant. The vehicle is expected to go on sale in late 2016 or early 2017.

In 2014, Subaru will reportedly be launching redesigned versions of the WRX and STI versions of the Impreza for sportier look. Reports also indicate that the Outback and Legacy will be redesigned in Q3 2014.

Rumors also indicate that Subaru is looking to replace the Tribeca with a seven-seat SUV/crossover within the next three years. A refreshed BRZ is expected in late 2015 for the 2016 model year. Subaru has been contemplating whether or not it wants to create a mainstream vehicle to combat other brands such as Nissan and others.

Car Review: 2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe

LITCHFIELD HILLS, CT — If one were to judge the people here in this rolling, semi-rural part of New England — with colonial houses and American flags flying from verandas a common sight — solely by the type of car driven, the inordinate number of Subarus seen on the road might suggest they are pragmatic, preferring something sensible for the cold, snowy winters. If these hardy, practical types would like to fly more of a freak flag this coming winter, Cadillac has something extra st ...

What were they thinking? A look at the 10 worst ‘halo’ cars

Jul 29 2014 11:20am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

By definition, a “halo” vehicle is supposed to beam a positive light — or brand image — about its maker. Or, for more practical reasons, attract new vehicle buyers into showrooms filled with less exciting cars and trucks. Historically, the original 1990s Dodge Viper is considered the most successful halo car of all time. It enhanced Dodge’s role as Chrysler’s “performance” brand at a time when it was better known as the maker of the plebeian rides like the K-Car and the Neon. Unfor ...

Scion xB to be replaced by Auris hatchbach, iQ dead after 2014

Jul 28 2014 1:26pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Budget, Hatchback, Scion, Toyota Scion seemed like such a good idea when it was first launched. Toyota's aim was to provide young people with stylish, affordable cars that would serve as a gateway to the automaker's family of products. It was also supposed to be something of an incubator for new ideas that were too radical for its more conservative Toyota and Lexus brands. Over a decade since its launch, the brand has languished, and today's showroom is pop ...

Five discontinued cars we’ll miss (and five we won’t)

Jul 28 2014 9:56am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

As the saying goes, nothing good lasts forever. It’s an unfortunate facet of life that applies to stuff like KFC’s Double Down sandwich, your favourite shirt and cars. Some nameplates have been around for decades, while others have their plugs pulled at some point due to slow sales. Yes, it’s the very reason why we’ve lost countless cars we’ve loved. Whenever it happens, a part of us hurts when we find out that the days of a car we love are numbered. Because it never gets any easier, let us ...
