About Subaru WRX

With a starting price well below $30,000, the all-wheel-drive 2018 Subaru WRX sports sedan is a high-performance bargain. Two models are offered, the 268-horsepower WRX and the 305-horsepower WRX STI, which also gets a gargantuan rear spoiler for increased high-speed stability. Both are visceral and exhilarating, packing turbocharged versions of Subaru’s unique horizontally opposed 4-cylinder engine and a standard 6-speed manual transmission. A CVT automatic transmission is available, but only on the WRX. Updates for 2018 include revised styling, improved handling as well as increased safety and comfort. The WRX competes with the Civic Si sedan and hot hatchbacks like the Volkswagen Golf GTI and Ford Focus ST. The WRX STI does battle with the all-wheel-drive VW Golf R, the Ford Focus RS and the all-new Honda Civic Type R.
