New 2018 Subaru WRX

2018 Subaru WRX Overview

New/Notable
  • Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive
  • Enhanced steering with the Active Torque Vectoring system
  • Available 19-inch alloy wheels with Brembo brakes
The 2018 Subaru WRX is a sporty sedan that was initially based on the Impreza platform. It competes with the Volkswagen Golf GTI, Ford Focus ST, and Hyundai Veloster. The high-performance WRX STI version will be covered in a separate overview.

Three trims are available: the base model, Premium, and Limited.

Exterior
The front-end of the WRX has race-focused styling, which includes an aggressive fascia, wide front fenders, and a functional hood scoop. However, the rest of the body has more plain sensibilities with a little bit of muscular definition. Standard features include a dual-pipe exhaust system, power/heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, a rear spoiler, and 17-inch wheels. LED headlights, LED fog lights, a power moonroof, Brembo brakes, and larger 18- or 19-inch alloy wheels are also available.

Under the Hood
The WRX is powered by a standard 268-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission or a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) and all-wheel drive. Complementing the WRX’s symmetrical all-wheel drive is the Active Torque Vectoring system, which reduces understeer and enhances steering response during sharp turning maneuvers.  Fuel economy for the WRX manual is an EPA-estimated 20/27 mpg city/highway. It slightly decreases to a 18/24 mpg rating for the WRX CVT.

Interior
The WRX has a standard cloth interior with front bucket seats and a 60/40 split-folding rear seat. The center stack features a standard STARLINK audio system, which includes a 6.3-inch touch screen, Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio, and dual-USB ports. It can be upgraded to a 7-inch touchscreen, an integrated navigation system, and a Harmon Kardon premium audio system. Standard features include dual-zone automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and aluminum-alloy pedal covers.  Ultrasuede and leather-trim upholstery, a power driver’s seat, Recaro sport seats, and power/heated front seats are available as well. The optional STARLINK Safety and Security System include automatic collision notification, SOS emergency assistance, roadside assistance, stolen vehicle recovery, vehicle diagnostics, and remote services. 

Safety
Standard safety features include a backup camera and a tire pressure monitoring system. The WRX has an updated, available EyeSight Driver Assist System, which includes adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking, and lane departure warning. Other available features include a blindspot monitoring system, lane change assist, rear cross-traffic alert.
