The Drive channel on YouTube, the one that brings you the crazy and super entertaining series like Chris Harris on Cars, has launched a new series called ‘Tuned’.
Tuned, as you can expect from the name, will feature tuned cars in various shapes and sizes.
The first episode, which made it’s debut yesterday, features a Subaru WRX Coupe. One of the more popular upgrades for this car is a R-STi drivetrain swap. In this episode of Tuned, the guys pit a R-STi drivetrain swap (JDM) against a USDM drivetrain swap.

Subaru South Africa has decided to drop the Impreza from its lineup. The new Subaru XV, that will be uveilied at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show will be replacing the Impreza range in South Africa from February 2012.
Designed by Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd. and described as an “Urban Adventurer”, the XV is a high-riding crossover model that will likely slot in between the Impreza and the larger Legacy Outback. The XV will be powered by a naturally aspirated 2,0-litre example of Subaru’s new FB-generation flat-four petrol engines. In addition, A choice of either 6-speed manual or Lineartronic CVT transmissions will be offered.
A few images of the latest offering from Subaru are now on the web rounds. These exclusive photos – leaked from the patent filing documents – identify the car as the 2012 Subaru Impreza XV. The car appears to be a take off from the carmaker’s XV concept.
Toyota and Subaru will launch their jointly-developed sport coupe in late 2011. Fuji Heavy Industries is the parent company of Subaru. Testing is almost complete and the design team is making their final adjustments. The vehicle is expected to be “very comfortable and fuel-efficient”. It features a low center of gravity that will instill driver confidence.

The Forester tS model from Subaru that will be available in the Japanese market has been shown to the public. The Forester tS seems to have some similarities to the S-Edition concept vehicle from Subaru that was displayed recently at the Australian Motor Show.
