Overview Information

As an all-around performance value, it's hard to beat the AWD Subaru WRX. Loosely based on the Impreza, the WRX is powered by one of two turbocharged horizontally-opposed four-cylinder engines. The 2.0l engine is rated at 268-bhp, whereas the 2.5l is rated at 305-bhp. Most models equip a 6-speed manual, but a CVT is now offered on some models. The sophisticated AWD drivetrain allows the WRX to provide all weather performance and handling.
