Impreza WRX STI hatch revival? Subaru and Toyota to debut AWD hot-hatch in 2022!

The Toyota and Subaru partnership has turned out to be joyfully fruitful one for enthusiasts, because, well, we got two generations of the Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ twins. Now, they want to do it again, this time creating an all-wheel drive (AWD), rally-bred hot-hatch. So what do we know? First things first, it's vital to know the Impreza nameplate covers both sedans and hatchbacks. Meanwhile, the WRX model line-up is reserved only for sedans. That said, the third-generation (GRB) Impreza was the

Scoop: 2021 Subaru WRX could get up to 300 PS from 2.4-litre boxer engine!

The Subaru WRX is one of those old-school four-door performance sedans that just refuses to give up. Even in an age where hot hatches are the in-thing. Subaru too isn’t giving up on an icon by slapping it on a crossover, unlike some other Japanese manufacturer. Just like the barrage of Mazda scoops yesterday, our Japanese media friends are also busy with another smaller Japanese carmaker. According to Best Car Web, Subaru is eyeing to unleash the next-gen WRX in August 2021. This will be the thi

It’s obvious that it’s been lovingly restored (read: thousands of Ringgit poured into it), so let’s see what you will get for the ask

Can Subaru’s symmetrical AWD save you from aquaplaning?

“If I wanted to fly, I would be a pilot”. Those are the words of legendary rally driver, Walter Röhrl, when he explained why he wasn’t a fan of jumps on rally stages. Similarly, if you wanted to go fast on water, you should be piloting a speed boat, not a car. Aquaplaning is what happens when you go too fast on a wet road on a rainy day. During a heavy downpour, your chances of a traffic collision increases. Cars spin out, crash into dividers, or even crash into other cars. The main culprit is a
