Subaru Van Insurance
Subaru is a Japanese car company which is a subsidiary of Fuji Heavy Industries.
Aside from automobiles like the Rodius, Rexton, Musso, Musso SUT, Chairman, Korando, and Istana, SsangYong Motor Company also builds the SY Truck and the Transstar another commercial truck.1999 to 2005, General Motors owned 20% of Subaru, before selling the majority of its share on the open market and 8.7% to Toyota. GMs 20% was previously owned by Nissan, who acquired the stake to have access to FHI. Even today, many Subaru vehicles have parts whose origins can easily be traced to Nissan. Some believe that Renaults partnership with Nissan is due to a discussion whose roots trace back to a discussion Renault had with FHI.
Subaru, who formed after WWII, is most renowned for its use of the horizontally opposed engine, as well as for the fact that they produce conventional commercial cars with full time all-wheel drive (AWD). Known mostly for the Impreza and the Legacy, modified versions of which have competed in World Rally Championships, Subaru also manufactures the Forester. Its cars are well known for their impressive handling and overall value, as well as their extensive safety features. It is a belief widely held that Subaru and Volvo make cars that are among the worlds safest.
All present models of Subaru are AWD vehicles and include the following car and van models: Baja, B9 Tribeca, Forester (a crossover SUV), Impreza, Impreza WRX, Subaru Impreza WRX Sti, Legacy/Liberty, Outback, Pleo (a Keicar), R1 (a Keicar), R2 (a Keicar), Sambar (a Keicar), Traviq (a rebadged Opel Zafira Minivan).
The Traviq or Zafira is a car from General Motors, rebranded as an Opel in Europe, except for the UK, where it has been branded as a Vauxhall. It is branded as a Holden in Australia, a Chevrolet in South America and Thailand (where it is also built) and as the Subaru Traviq in Japan. The van first appeared in 1999.
The Zafira is a people carrier or MPV, having seven seats arranged in 3 rows. The back row can be folded away easily to create more space for carrying luggage or other material, individually or together. This feature was considered revolutionary, with most similar vans requiring that extra seats be physically removed from the vehicle to accomplish the same thing.
The van is based on the same platform as the 1998 Astra and shares much in common with that van.
