2018 Subaru WRX Review
There’s love and then there’s love. The Subaru WRX is the second kind of love the kind that pulses through your veins and keeps you up at night and makes you duck out of work early so you can play with the car of your desires. Choose from five models starting with the base WRX and moving through the sublime WRX STI. From its boxer engine to its Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive the WRX is built to be driven. Hard. As in 10-Rally-America-championships-between-2006-and-2016 hard. A sport-tuned suspension and Vehicle Dynamics Control with Active Torque Vectoring are standard. The faster you go the safer you’d better be. A comprehensive supplemental restraint system that includes airbags and front seats with whiplash protection is standard and Subaru EyeSight safety technology is available. So is blind-spot detection. And headlights with high-beam assist. Subaru’s StarLink in-vehicle technology with voice command keeps you connected. Make calls get directions listen to music and more. Choose from a variety of colors options and Genuine Subaru WRX Accessories and build a WRX that’s all yours. The Subaru WRX. Love at warp speed.
It used to be a big deal when a car came from the factory with a clock. Compared to that your Subaru WRX is something from the Jetsons. Starlink in-vehicle technology keeps you connected. Need to make a phone call? Bluetooth lets you do it without letting go of the wheel. Wondering if you left your doors unlocked? Starlink Safety and Security services let you check from your phone desk- or laptop—and lock the doors if you need to. The Subaru WRX. Love means never having to disconnect.
The Subaru WRX is built to go fast. And the faster you go the safer you’d better be. A comprehensive supplemental restraint system with airbags and whiplash-protection front seats is standard and Subaru EyeSight safety technology is available. So is blind-spot detection. And headlights with high-beam assist. With all those safety features it’s no wonder the American Customer Satisfaction Index ranks Subaru first in safety and dependability. The Subaru WRX. Love means never having to say you’re sorry.
Winner of 10 Rally America championships between 2006 and 2016 the Subaru WRX is built to be driven. Fire up the turbocharged Boxer engine. That’s the hoofbeat of 305 horses you hear under the legendary STI’s hood. And it’s more than fast. The WRX is the longest-lasting turbocharged all-wheel-drive vehicle in its class. Now hit the road. Paved dirt it doesn’t matter. Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive is just the beginning. Vehicle Dynamics Control with Active Torque Vectoring makes sure you stay on course. The Subaru WRX. Love means never getting passed.
