On www.drive.subaru.com you’ll find regularly updated, exclusive content that includes expansion of articles, image galleries, videos, a place for your own road trips, and even feature articles exclusive to the website.


For years, the Drive website has been the place to find extensions of the magazine’s articles (called Online Exclusives) and a place to read and post reader Road Trips. Early in 2011, we began reconstructing the website with an updated design in order to give readers:

  • More feature articles of interest to Subaru owners
  • Videos and image galleries that supplement the magazine’s features
  • Journal postings – weekly entries by the editors are blog-like observations and information of interest to Subaru owners
  • Share with others via Facebook and Twitter


We have retained the heart of the original website, which is the content of the Subaru owner magazine Drive.


Even though we’re continuing construction to provide additional features, we wanted to show you what is available now.

Ray’s Indoor MTB Park – Milwaukee


The Winter 2010 issue of Drive explored Ray Petro’s Subaru-sponsored Indoor Mountain Bike Park in Cleveland. When the Drive staff discovered that Petro had put together another park down the street from magazine headquarters in Milwaukee, we had to take a look. This video is a result.
