Subaru review: price and details

Subaru review: price and details


The next brand that we will detail in our series of articles on maintenance costs is Subaru, which currently only has three models in its lineup here.

Marketed by the CAOA Group, the Japanese brand offers a 5-year unlimited mileage warranty for passenger cars and 2 years for sports models. For this, it is important to closely follow the maintenance plan.

These adjustments are made every 10,000 km or 12 months, whichever comes first, with a tolerance of 1,000 km or 1 month, more or less. All values ​​are reported on the brand’s website, where it also shows which items will be inspected or exchanged and the service time in each case.

One problem, however, is that only 10,000 km maintenance is free work. All others charge an additional amount, which unfortunately is not disclosed by the brand on its website. So, just contact the seller to know how much you will spend.

The number of Subaru dealers in Brazil is very small, but it has a network of authorized workshops that also perform various services. In addition, new vehicles have 1 year of 24-hour support at no extra cost.

Let’s talk about the details and values ​​of the modification of the models Subaru. In addition to the cars currently on sale, we also list other models available on the used market below.

Look!

XV

The current entry model of Subaru in Brazil, in a very lean line that has only three models, the New XV is an SUV with a 2.0 engine with 156 hp, 20 kgfm of torque and 4×4 traction that costs from R $ 174,900.

In addition to the price itself, the cost of modifying brand models helps explain the low sales rate. In the case of the XV, maintenance has two fixed rates (R$ 1,076.11 and R$ 1,085.63), except for the 60,000 km station, which costs R$ 1,232.59.

With that, the owner would spend more than R$ 6.6 thousand in the first six modifications. As we have already said, the problem is that only the first repairs have free work, and all the others still add this additional guarantee.

In short, the Subaru XV certainly costs more than R$7,000 to fulfill its mandatory maintenance up to 60,000 km, which is far from its direct competitors.

Check the values ​​of the current generation as well as the previous one, sold until 2017:

Destination Cost Cost

in the forest

Available in Brazil since June 2019, the new Subaru Forester arrived with a new system, new equipment and engine upgrades, but the appearance did not change much and that hindered your life here.

And what about your reviews? Like its aforementioned sibling, the Forester shares a 2.0-liter boxer engine with 156 hp and 20.6 kgfm, and a seven-speed CVT gearbox. This makes your corrections equally valuable.

Another similarity with the XV lies in the values ​​of the previous generation Forester, which was sold here between 2015 and 2018. This includes the expected version (with 150 hp and 20.2 kgfm) and the turbo option (240 hp and 35). .7 kgfm).

The current lineup consists of only the Forester S, which starts at R$198,900. See below for all values ​​in detail:

Destination Cost Cost
Mileage Forester (from 2019) Forester (until 2018)
10,000 kilometers BRL 1,076.11 BRL 1,076.11

Total BRL 6,632.18 BRL 6,859.86

WRX STI

The eternal rival of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, the Subaru WRX STi has been sold in Brazil for a generation longer than we would like, but it remains an icon for those who love sports cars and manual transmissions.

Here we are talking about a model with a 2.5 turbo boxer engine with 310 hp and 41.5 kgfm of torque, with a six-speed manual transmission and AWD traction. It reaches 100 km/h in 5.2 seconds and has a top speed of 255 km/h.

Something interesting happens, however, when we talk about their modifications. The most powerful model is the one that charges less for maintenance up to 60,000 km, earning less than R$ 6,500. This is the only version currently available, priced at R$308,900.

In addition, the Subaru WRX had the same 270 hp 2.0 turbo boxer engine in this generation, which was offered with a manual or CVT transmission. The first charges more, exceeding R$7,000, while the second is slightly less than that, with R$6,900.

The same amount of the automatic version is charged to this day for previous WRX revisions sold, between 2015 and 2017. Check it out:

Destination Cost Cost Cost Cost

Tribeca

For those who don’t remember, the Tribeca was introduced by the CAOA Group in mid-2008 (already as a 2009 model) to counter the Nissan Murano. The problem is that the Subaru model cost R$ 197,900, a very high value at the time.

It arrived only in the more equipped Mini version, with a 3.5 V6 engine with 270 hp and 35 kgfm of torque, and a five-speed automatic transmission. This set pushed the SUV of almost 2 tons with ease, but the average consumption was only 6.5 km / l with gasoline.

The renovations are also scary, and all the stations cost more than R$ 1.1 thousand. The maintenance of 60,000 kilometers is more expensive, reaching R $ 2.6 thousand, which makes the final value the highest so far: R $ 8.6 thousand.

The end of Tribeca came in January 2014, when its production ended in the United States. Even in a market that attracts models of this type, the Subaru SUV has never achieved the success that the brand had hoped for.

inheritance

Unlike the Tribeca, the Legacy has always been popular in the markets where it is sold, so much so that the sedan is already in its seventh generation abroad. Here, it lasted until 2016, when it was sold for R$137,600 (but with several advertisements that lowered that price).

This latest model offered in our market was equipped with a 3.6-liter boxer engine with 256 hp and 35.7 kgfm of torque, with a six-speed CVT gearbox and AWD wheel drive. Very well equipped, it reached 100 km/h in 7.2 seconds, and a top speed of 240 km/h.

Its repairs have almost all the values ​​​​charged in the case of Tribeca, except for maintenance at 60,000 km, which costs R$ 1,500. And this makes a lot of difference in the final value, as you can see below:

Destination Cost
Mileage Legacy (up to 2016)
10,000 kilometers BRL 1,179.59
20,000 kilometers BRL 1,189.11
30,000 kilometers BRL 1,293.43
40,000 kilometers BRL 1,189.11
50,000 kilometers BRL 1,179.59
60,000 kilometers BRL 1,523.39
Total BRL 7,554.22

Impreza

Here we are talking about a model that is so well known in the brand, that it is difficult to say “Subaru” without adding “Impreza”. Except for a few years, it was sold here between 1993 and 2016.

Before leaving our market, the Impreza appeared in the store of the brand in the body of a sedan, equipped with a 2.0 engine expected with 156 hp and 20 kgfm of torque. It had a CVT gearbox and all-wheel drive, but it wasn’t too exciting about its acceleration to 100 km/h in 11.1 seconds.

His opinion has a reasonable value when we consider the level of the brand, a total of more than R$ 6,800 in the first six stations. Check out:

Destination Cost
Mileage Impreza (up to 2016)
10,000 kilometers BRL 1,076.11
20,000 kilometers BRL 1,085.63
30,000 kilometers BRL 1,189.95
40,000 kilometers BRL 1,085.63
50,000 kilometers BRL 1,076.11
60,000 kilometers BRL 1,346.43

On sale here until 2020, the Outback station wagon has already found a new generation abroad, where it is very successful with its amazing proposition. New features include a new platform and more powerful engines.

In Brazil, the Subaru model had received its latest updates at the 2016 Motor Show, when it received more safety equipment. The engine was still the same boxer 3.6, 256 hp and 35.7 kgfm (same set as Legacy).

The modification of the station wagon appears different on the website, distinguishing the models sold between 2015 and 2018 or sold in 2019. However, the value is the same, a total of R$ 7,500 up to 60,000 km. Check out:
