Be wary when you wander into a Subaru dealer – your entire future life
may depend on the choice you make. Will you end up with a farming workhorse, a really
cool SUV, a middling saloon or one of the greatest rally cars in history? Life
was so much simpler when only farmers had ever heard of them…
£24,995 - £27,995
Rejoice! Subaru has heralded the return of the genuine driver's coupe. Buy one. Immediately.
£20,275 - £28,250
Another great SUV that isn’t really an SUV. The Forester is a chunky
looking tool that loves fieldwork, but is way too subtle to be targeted by
Green Party spoilsports.
£16,450 - £23,495
It doesn’t matter if yours is a naff colour with a wheezy engine – the
Impreza, in its several guises, each progressively uglier, was a rally god.
And, therefore, so are you.
£21,292 - £29,469
Unlike most Australians, the Legacy looks much better with its Outback
hat on. No corks here, just a thoroughly sorted, well-specced estate with SUV
£20,895 - £28,450
A long time favourite of farmers, the Legacy is an interesting alternative buy. Boasts permanent four wheel drive and excellent reliability.
Like the local burberry-clad scally who nicks your hubcaps
and hangs them in a nearby tree, you want to hate the STI but can't. Not once
you've driven it.
£21,295 - £29,995
Smart new Subaru is a welcome right move for the brand, although the XV isn't as polished as it could be.
