Review: 2019 Subaru Forester Sport

In Colorado we don’t officially have a “State Car,” but it might come down to a battle between Jeep and the Subaru Outback. Having said that, however, Subaru has another candidate that might just elbow its way into the debate.

Review: 2018 Volkswagen Passat SEL Premium

Sure, the old adage about “ain’t broke/don’t fix it” can apply to car design, but Volkswagen apparently feels strongly about it.

It’s not very often that you find two big players in the automotive world working together to create a car. But that’s exactly what happened when Toyota partnered with Subaru to develop a sporty little number called the 86 under the Toyota badge and the BRZ when Subaru’s name is on the back.
