Subaru was the first car company to offer an affordable four-wheel drive model. This fact was exploited as a point of pride for the company in its marketing campaigns and it worked. The Subaru DL/GL went on to become the best-selling four-wheel drive automobile on the market. Following the DL/GL with the tough little Subaru Brat car-based pickup (based on the DL/GL platform) was another solid move. The Brat developed an almost cult-like following almost from the moment it went on sale.

Having made its bones with quirky, but robust automobiles, Subaru cashed in on the SUV boom by raising its Legacy station wagon up a couple of inches on its suspension system, outfitting it with some offroad hardware, and dubbing it the Subaru Outback. Anointed with the title of “The World’s First Sport Utility Wagon”, sales of that model took off as well.

Another Subaru cult favorite—the Impreza WRX—was offered nearly everywhere in the world, except the United States, until the 2000 model year. This of course created intense desire for the model when it was finally brought to America. Currently Subaru’s American lineup includes a rear-drive sports car (developed in conjunction with Toyota) called the BRZ, Impreza, Legacy, Forester, XV, Crosstrek, Outback, and Tribeca. All of which are offered with all-wheel drive—save the BRZ.
