Subaru Plugs In Another Niche With The First-Ever Levorg (WRX) Layback

After teasing it last month, Subaru has finally revealed the first-ever WRX (Levorg) Layback.

Review: 2024 Subaru Crosstrek 2.0i-S

Whenever a carmaker comes up with a new nameplate, it comes with the expectation that the overall experience would be new and transformative. Yet when Subaru decided to axe the “XV” name in favor of “Crosstrek,” the resulting crossover feels like it took two steps forward and two steps back.

Among its competitors—the beautiful Mazda CX-30 among them—the Crosstrek is the one we’d take in a heartbeat. It’s a bit boring, sure, but it’s just so well-attuned to our road conditions be it in design, packaging, and safety.
