Driving Impression

New Car Test Drive
“”

Descended from rally vehicles, Subaru’s WRX promises strong performance and precise handling above all. Benefits of turbo power and all-wheel drive are especially noteworthy on a winding dirt road.

Razor-sharp steering and swift reflexes, summoned by hands on the thick-rim steering wheel, help the WRX excel when the pavement turns curvy. Road grip is great, especially when the surface is crumbling.

WRX suspensions are comparatively soft, ensuring comfort whether cruising or traversing urban intersections. When pushed hard, either turbo-four emits a visceral wail that amplifies the WRX’s exuberance. Either WRX demonstrates almost uncanny ability to tackle and conquer whatever lies ahead.

Any WRX provides effortless acceleration and passing power. The standard 6-speed manual transmission features fairly short throws and predictable clutch operation. The available CVT is tuned to be well-behaved in traffic, but also to keep the engine at its peak when in Sport or Sport Sharp mode. Eight paddle-selected ratios make it reminiscent of a dual-clutch transmission.

An available Bilstein suspension for the WRX STI sharpens handling further yet. Hydraulic steering on the STI sets the bar even higher, as do its hefty Brembo brakes.

Driven with restraint, a WRX can be fairly thrifty. With 6-speed manual, the WRX is EPA-rated at 21/27 mpg City/Highway, or 23 mpg Combined. CVT-equipped versions are far thirstier, at 18/24/21 mpg. The hotter WRX STI is EPA-rated at only 17/22 mpg City/Highway, or 19 mpg Combined. All versions need premium gasoline.

Walk Around

“”

Unlike typical high-performance automobiles, the WRX steers clear of aggressively-shaped fenders, body strakes, and other doodads. Instead, Subaru’s top performers come across as subtle styled, with crisp lines but a restrained, even ordinary, demeanor.

Sizable, bulging fender flares on the WRX make the 17-inch alloy wheels look bigger than their diameters suggest. Apart from the colossal rear wing out back, the WRX STI applies the same basic look to its 19-inch wheels.

Interior Overview

Editor:
New Car Test Drive
“”

Like its aging body, the spacious WRX cabin feels somewhat dated. Imagination seems to be lacking, though fit and finish score well.

Luxury may be limited, but comfortable front seats, upholstered with grippy fabric, elicit a sense of sportiness. Leather and synthetic suede trim on the available Recaro seats give the cabin an appropriately racy nature. Tighter-feeling, they’re standard in the WRX STI and optional for WRX Premium.

Outward vision excels. So does the back seat, which is surprisingly spacious and can accommodate three if needed. Interior furnishings fall well short of posh, but the body’s low beltline blends with thin roof pillars to give the cabin an airy feel. Leather upholstery on Limited models feels classy.

Only 12 cubic feet of cargo fit into the WRX trunk. Rear seatbacks fold to accept larger items.

Summary

Editor:
New Car Test Drive
“”

Either WRX can serve well as a family car, albeit one with plenty of potential for rewarding hours on any road. On nearly any surface, the WRX promises a swift run while conveying four passengers in reasonable comfort. Some rivals offer greater power, but the WRX duo prioritizes swift responses and dead-on handling capabilities over creature comforts.
