What kind of power and handling can I expect from the 2018 Subaru WRX?

Two turbocharged engines form the WRX's powertrain lineup. Driving the base WRX, the Premium and the Limited is a 2.0-liter BOXER 4-cylinder, which puts out 268 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. A twin scroll turbocharger with an intercooler maximises the 2.0L engine's power. This engine maximizes the WRX's fuel economy, achieving up to 27 miles per gallon on the highway when paired with the standard 6-speed manual transmission. The Premium and Limited trims are also available with a Sport Lineartronic transmission with paddle shifters. The beefier STI and STI Limited models are equipped with a 2.5-liter BOXER 4-cylinder, producing 305 horsepower and 290 lb-ft of torque. Performance-inspired suspension tuning helps balance out the STI's engine power, while a fully synchronized close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission allows drivers to take full advantage of the STI's driving potential. All WRX and WRX STI models come equipped with Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive for deft and confident navigation of difficult driving conditions, a feature which is unique and appealing for someone who enjoys the excitement of a performance sedan but may encounter dirt and gravel roads or unsavory weather. Standard active torque vectoring, vehicle dynamics control and traction control system all work to provide superior traction and stability.

What is the WRX's interior design like?

The WRX's interior is outfitted with an array of comfort and convenience features, and offers a spacious and versatile area for passengers and cargo. The already generous 12-cubic-foot trunk can be extended by folding down part or all of the 60/40-split rear seats to fit lengthy or larger cargo, and standard roof rack brackets allow for additional storage on top of the vehicle. Don't have a ton of cargo to lug around? In that case, invite your friends and family to stretch out and enjoy up to 96.6 cubic feet of passenger volume, the most passenger volume of any all-wheel drive vehicle in the segment. The WRX's roofline and seat design make it surprisingly easy to get in and out of, a standout feature among sports-inspired cars. Among standard and available features for the WRX's interior are premium cloth, leather and suede upholstery; heated and power front seats; a power-tilt/sliding-glass moonroof; keyless entry and ignition and more. Standard is a six-speaker audio system, with an optional upgrade to a premium nine-speaker Harman Kardon system.
