Buying

What should I be paying?

Not that £28,995 is particularly expensive for a car that’s this fast and exhilarating across country. Just watch the costs – it’ll cost you £840 to tax for the first year and £475 thereafter. And claimed economy of 27.2mpg is worse than a 552bhp Audi RS6 (yes, really). CO2 of 242g/km doesn’t look clever when a 300bhp Audi S3 saloon emits just 162g/km and can average 40mpg; that’s the stark mark of progress. Subaru will doubtless sell some to the hardcore few who had one before, but as for attracting new people to the brand, Subaru is facing an uphill struggle.
