Grip : GRIP August 2012
WHAT’S IN THE PRESS GRIP SUBARU MAKING A SPLASH IT’S not just the BRZ that has been making an impact in the media. Importantly, we’ve seen positive “copy” right across the Subaru range from around the country. Outback, Impreza, XV and Forester still continue to catch the eye of the nation’s motoring media. Here’s some of what they have been saying recently. Outback EyeSight “A number of European designed and built vehicles have camera-based systems, but Subaru’s EyeSight has brought this breakthrough safety to the mainstream. “And for mainstream family buyers, the Subaru Outback 3.6R is a sensibly sized wagon with Subaru’s renowned All- Wheel-Drive traction. And the hearty performance of Subaru’s 3.6 litre six-cylinder engine, and the total package of the Subaru Outback 3.6R, looks very tasty.” Mike Griffin - Townsville Bulletin. Impreza reviews keep coming “ Everything that disappointed with the third generation Subaru Impreza has been righted with generation four .... this latest outing introduces a new level of sophistication, new technology and a look-at-me styling that resembles a baby Liberty.” Darryl Starr - Border Mail (Albury-Wodonga) Outback 3.6R Premium tested towing “Once up to speed on the freeway the extra load was quickly forgotten, and speed was easily maintained up steeper inclines, without the gearbox constantly swapping cogs or engine getting thrashy. “Switched to manual mode, the steering wheel paddles were useful for choosing the right gear when using engine braking down steep, slow hills. “So long as you’re planning to tow not much more than 15 0 0kg, the range-topping Outback is a good option as a mid-range tow vehicle; not to mention a comfortable, relaxed family cruiser.” Chris Fincham - Carpoint. com.au XV impresses “Subaru’s sub-compact SUV, the XV, combines class- leading ride, handling, ground clearance and pricing to worry the established players.” Isaac Bober - Overlander 4WD Forester a favourite “The Forester is the best selling compact SUV in the country. It’s our pick over the X-Trail because of its safety and on- road dynamics.” Sunday Times Perth INSIDE GRIP AUGUST 2012 HOME PAGE BRZ ACCOLADES PARTS & ACCESSORIES AFTERSALES LIBERTY X WHAT’S IN THE PRESS SUBARU TRENDS DEALER STATS NPS SCORES SPORT
