Subaru 50th Anniversary Museum drive day

We drive Subaru Museum vehicles

Subaru celebrates its 50th anniversary in Australia this year. With over 1 million vehicles sold and consistently in the top ten brands year by year, it’s been a success story.

I got to drive some historic Subaru models at a drive day at a private track a few weeks ago and I have to say it was a lot of fun.

Models included a 1995 SVX coupe with its sensuous styling and 3.3L engine. A 1998 Outback which changed the face of SUVs forever.

Of course, there was the iconic 1992 Brumby Ute as well as an early model Forester.

These were mixed with several WRX and WRX STi models ranging from a 2000 model through the last 2021 WRX STi model.

And just to add to the fun there were a few BRZ coupes as well.

Having a look back drive day is refreshing. It allows us to drive some classics as well as appreciating all the technological advancements. Mind you some of the earlier models were pure fun to drive.

Its also pleasing to see just how popular and loved the Brumby Ute is.

Thank you, Subaru.
