The first impression of Subaru would give you plenty of reasons not to get one. Very restrained design, mediocre reliability ratings and a CVT transmission. However, this niche automaker has been showing an upwards trend in sales numbers for the past dozen years and if it weren’t for the lockdowns, yet another record could have been smashed. If you need reasons to explain this success, well these cars do the job and they leave buyers happy, especially those who value passenger safety and a near legendary symmetrical all-wheel drive. 2021 won’t be a revolution for Subaru, but it will make their models better and today we would like you to get acquainted with new models and enhancements to your favorites!
