This Collection Of Subaru Crashes Is Here To Remind You That All-Wheel-Drive Does Not Save You From Poor Driving.

Subaru, prior to the mid-1990s in the United States, anyways, was famous only for four-wheel drive or all-wheel-drive cars that made a funny noise…oh, yeah, and that one really off-the-wall GT coupe they made with the DeLorean-like side windows. But then a funny thing happened: Rally racing became accessible on cable and satellite channels, and driving simulator games like Gran Turismo introduced a younger generation to versions of the Impreza that they hadn’t seen before, like the WRX. Watching Colin McRae fly the blue-and-gold 555 Impreza rally car through the woods like a freaking Cessna just made it all the better. Subarus quickly gained favor in the performance world as the all-wheel-drive rally rocket from hell, with a flat-four bass note for an exhaust and a penchant for snow and mud. But this also invites danger, because inevitably inexperienced drivers will try to emulate their heroes. It’s one thing if McRae crashes out in a WRC Impreza…it’s another altogether for someone in a wicked-up STI to crash out.

This footage is a compilation of all sorts of incidents involving Subaru’s potent WRX STI variation of the Impreza. Oversteer, understeer, speed, and the car’s sorry ability to fly for long distances all play a part in the incidents you are about to witness. Everyone involved does walk away from these crashes, but some of them will leave you wondering.
