Pretty impressive.

Do you guys think Subaru will ever be as big as say Honda or Toyota? Or are they destined to be a niche market automaker forever?

I am going to say they stay niche. As much as I love Subaru, their designs are pretty unique (aka a lot of people don't like them) and AWD and turbos just simply aren't appealing to a lot of consumers -- they think, "why get a Subaru when I can get a Corolla or Civic?" I'm not saying they're wrong, a lot of people have no need for AWD with ground clearance, or a 305HP turbo rocket.

THIS.

As much as I love Subaru, I understand they can be "overkill" for a lot of people. So it's destined to stay a niche manufacturer.
