Electric power steering with a quick 14.4:1 ratio creates a sharp turn-in and excellent on-center feel. Aluminum front lower control arms reduce unsprung weight and pivot on pillow ball bushings for instant response.
The high-performance, track-tuned suspension on the WRX features aggressive spring and damper rates, large front and rear anti-roll bars, and wide summer tires for tremendous grip and control. The double-wishbone rear suspension with pillow ball bushings enables flat cornering while the rigid unibody with reinforced suspension mounting points creates the ideal platform for the best-handling WRX ever.
Drawn from over 40 years of intelligent performance, the unique SUBARU BOXER® engine has pistons that move side to side, canceling out each other’s vibrations so it can run smoother and more efficiently. This horizontal layout also offers better balance while delivering a maximum transfer of power. The 268-hp Direct-Injection Turbocharged engine features a twin-scroll turbocharger for near-instant boost response and maximum power across a wide power band, delivering 258 pound-feet of torque from 2,000 to 5,200 RPM.
The balanced design of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive creates uniform stability and delivers an optimal distribution of power for maximum traction. Which means you can confidently rocket out of corners on the track, kick up dirt on back roads, and head out on a road trip in all kinds of conditions.
Get a clearer look around every bend with available LED Steering Responsive Headlights, which actively track in the direction of a turn to enhance visibility.
Standard 19-inch alloy wheels sport a striking Y-shaped spoke design and provide low unsprung weight and quick suspension response.
The WRX is available with a Sport Lineartronic transmission with SI-DRIVE and paddle shifters. It perfectly blends the convenience of an advanced automatic transmission with the ability to manually control shifts in 6- or 8-speed manual modes for enhanced driver involvement.
Your soundtrack should match your vehicle’s performance. That’s why the WRX features an available 9-speaker, 440-watt-equivalent Harman Kardon premium audio system including USB/iPod® control and dual USB ports. It also offers standard Sirius XM All Access Radio, providing up to 170 channels of music, sports, news, weather, talk, and comedy in high-quality digital sound.
WRX STI models feature available Recaro performance front seats, including an eight-way power driver’s seat, to create a cockpit that elevates precision driving and ergonomic comfort.
Available EyeSight monitors traffic movement, optimizes cruise control, and warns you when you’re swaying outside your lane. The Pre-Collision Braking feature can even apply full braking force in emergency situations. Another way Subaru designs vehicles with your safety in mind.
Using radar sensors, the Blind-Spot Detection system warns you with a visual indicator in each side mirror if it senses a vehicle in your blind spots. Rear Cross-Traffic Alert helps warn you of traffic approaching from the side as you are backing up, utilizing an audible warning and flashing visual indicator in your side mirrors and rear-vision camera display. And a standard Rear-Vision Camera enhances rear visibility when reversing.
STARLINK Safety and Security includes Automatic Collision Notification, Enhanced Roadside Assistance, Stolen Vehicle Recovery, and added convenience with Remote Services. Whether you’re in your vehicle, at your computer, or on your iOS or Android mobile device, STARLINK Safety and Security helps keep you and your vehicle safe.
