Visceral and exhilarating, the all-wheel-drive 2018 Subaru WRX is a high-performance sports-sedan bargain with a starting price well below $30,000. Updates for 2018 include revised styling, improved handling and increased comfort. Two models are offered, the 268-horsepower WRX and the 305-horsepower WRX STI. Both are packing turbocharged horizontally opposed 4-cylinder engines and a standard 6-speed manual transmission.
New Features and Revisions
Extensive updates for 2018 include a larger lower front grille, a retuned suspension for improved handing and ride comfort and more sound insulation for a quieter interior. Subaru has also added its EyeSight driver-assist safety technology to the WRX’s option list, and the STI gets 19-inch wheels and tires.
