We understand that taking a regular car and turning it into a supercar killer is something a lot of petrolheads like. But sometimes, pouring a ton of money into a project car isn’t the best of ideas.

As with every year, the Euro NCAP published the list with the safest new cars in their respective classes for 2017. The independent organization rates each model in four categories: Adult Occupant Safety, Child Occupant Safety, Pedestrian Safety and Safety Assist, with the three first being self-explanatory and the fourth assessing the active and passive systems that are available.


The European New Car Assessment Program says that its star ratings between different segments of models are not directly comparable. which leads us to their ‘Best In Class’ awards, showing which models have performed better than their direct competitors.

Euro NCAP has divided the car market into six segments: Executive, Large Off-Road, Small Off-Road, Supermini, Small MPV and Small Family Car. Let’s see then which new cars took the title of the safest model in their respective segments, and watch the relevant video that follows.

Executive: VW Arteon


Adult Occupant: 96% | Child Occupant: 85% | Pedestrian: 85% | Safety Assist: 82%

Large Off-Road: Volvo XC60


Adult Occupant: 98% | Child Occupant: 87% | Pedestrian: 76% | Safety Assist: 95%

Small Off-Road: VW T-Roc


Adult Occupant: 96% | Child Occupant: 87% | Pedestrian: 79% | Safety Assist: 71%

Supermini: VW Polo


Adult Occupant: 96% | Child Occupant: 85% | Pedestrian: 76% | Safety Assist: 59%

Small MPV: Opel Crossland X


Adult Occupant: 85% | Child Occupant: 84% | Pedestrian: 62% | Safety Assist: 57%

Small Family Car: Subaru XV & Subaru Impreza


XV| Adult Occupant: 94% | Child Occupant: 89% | Pedestrian: 84% | Safety Assist: 68%
Impreza| Adult Occupant: 94% | Child Occupant: 85% | Pedestrian: 82% | Safety Assist: 68%

Baby Driver Returns To Subaru WRX To Pull Off Snowy Drifts 10

Ansel Elgort, the star in the film “Baby Driver,” kept one of the six Subaru WRX sedans that were used during the filming of the movie. Instead of putting the WRX away, Elgort took to Twitter to showcase some snowy drifts.

As the wheelman in the film, Elgort received tons of training to ensure that he could actually perform the stunts in the movie’s chase scenes, which is probably why we loved “Baby Driver.” Apparently, Elgort remembered some of his training, because the drifts he pulled off during New York City’s recent snowstorm were on point.

According to Motor1, making “Baby Driver” took six WRX sedans. One of the sedans was converted to rear-wheel drive and fitted with an upgraded differential to keep the smoky drifts going. That vehicle, even with 158,000 miles on the clock, sold for $69,100 on eBay.

While that vehicle is probably stored away somewhere, Elgort begged the studio to take one of the WRX sedans home. After roughly a year of begging, Sony finally obliged his request, giving the actor the Subaru for his birthday.

Clearly, Elgort’s still enjoying being behind the wheel of a Subaru.

Listen To A Subaru Boxer Engine Rev To A Dizzying 12,000 RPM 26

Posted by Brad Anderson in Film, Subaru, subaru impreza, Subaru Videos, video on 12 26th, 2017


While big, bustling V8 engines have their appeal, there is something especially intoxicating about small-capacity engines that howl like tiny Formula 1 engines.

Among Subaru enthusiasts, high-revving boxer engines, such as the EJ207, are adored and Australian tuning company GotitRext has decided to take the boxer engine to new heights.

The firm got their hands on a flat-four EJ-series motor and set about transforming it with new internals and a Garrett GTW3884 turbocharger. Incredibly, the engine delivers 610 hp at the wheels. However, that’s not the most amazing thing.

The most remarkable element of this flat-four is its ability to rev to a barely-believable 12,000 rpm. It’s unclear how GotitRext was able to make the engine rev at such extraordinary levels while still being reliable but it makes for a truly frightening powertrain.

As a matter of fact, the five-speed manual transmission mated to the engine means this 1994 Impreza LX hits 140 mph (225 km/h) in third gear alone!

Dear Santa…
