After starring on the first season of a popular New Zealand reality television show, Art Green has become a well-recognised public figure but it was his healthy, active lifestyle and the fact he has grown up with the Subaru brand that has seen him become a Subaru brand ambassador.
Art started out driving Subaru’s stylish sports wagon - the Levorg - around Auckland, and he is now driving a Subaru Outback. Subaru’s largest and most popular SUV is perfect for his active lifestyle and provides a comfortable drive for his longer commutes, after he recently moved to Warkworth with wife and fellow Subaru brand ambassador Matilda Green.
Art embodies what Kiwi Subaru drivers are all about. They might use their Subarus for work by day but come 5pm or the weekend, they are looking for an adventure and Subaru’s All-Wheel Drive, Boxer-engined beauties are the cars to transport them to where the action is.
Following a busy few years as the co-owner of the Clean Paleo health food company; writing a best-selling book; winning a high profile boxing match against an All Black; competing in the Coast to Coast multisport race; and launching a new business Plate Up, Art is stoked to be part of the Subaru team.
“My family have owned Subarus throughout much of my life, so I grew up knowing the cars and experiencing how well they drive. They are well known for being classy yet practical cars that let you live an adventurous lifestyle - so I felt that Subaru was the perfect fit for me,” Art says.
He is enjoying the versatility of the Subaru Outback, which is packed full of features including Subaru's EyeSight® clever crash avoidance technology, rear cross traffic alert and a host of vision assist functions and all the SUV capabilities, such as, All-Wheel Drive, 213mm of ground clearance, X-Mode for rugged terrain and integrated roof rails to carry his surf and paddle boards.
“I use my Outback for everything. In any one day that could mean towing the boat and going for a wakeboard before work, then rocking up to various business meetings throughout the day, to then driving back up to Warkworth for an evening trail run,” Art says.
Art and his wife Matilda are enthusiastic about keeping healthy and fit and Art’s 99,000 social media followers can see how the Subaru Outback is enabling his dynamic Kiwi lifestyle.
Subaru of New Zealand Managing Director Wallis Dumper says: “Art obviously leads an active life, but he also promotes good times. Seeing him out in his Subaru with gear on the roof racks at sunrise epitomises what the Subaru ‘do’ philosophy is all about. It encapsulates how our All-Wheel Drive engineering prowess helps our Subaru drivers to enjoy getting off the beaten track, secure in the knowledge that they can get safely back onto it again,” Mr Dumper says.
