A Compact Sedan for the Everyday, an Athlete for the Road Trip

The new 2019 WRX rockets out the gate in its base trims sporting a twin-scroll turbocharged 268-horsepower, 2.0-liter SUBARU BOXER® engine capable of shelling 258 pound-feet of torque -- plenty of churn for the drive. Step up to a turbocharged 310-horsepower, 2.5-liter variant at the top of the line, and you gain more than 30 more pound-feet net, 290 total -- both rating higher than many other sports sedans in the compact segment.

Choose from three transmission options, geared for the hands-on experience or ease of use. First, there are two six-speeds, fully synchronized for an advancement on a standard manual. Plus, there's an available Sport Lineartronic&#trade; model, offering six- and eight-speed manual modes as well as the ten-and-two convenience of paddle shifters. But at the center of la all are two marvels of Subaru engineering. One is Subaru Intelligent Drive (SI-DRIVE), with three performance characteristic-driven modes customized according to special ECU, throttle, and, in Sport Lineartronic-equipped models, shift tuning. The other is standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, continuous in base models and with variable torque distribution in select trims. It's permanent, always-on, and, with proactive traction control in contrast to "slip-then-grip" electronic AWD and fewer moving parts, both more reliable and lower-maintenance.

Bring it all together with two sport-tuned four-wheel independent suspension options, with a high-performance STI sport-tuned variant coming standard in upper trims. Add the Driver Controlled Center Differential (DCCD) in WRX STI into the mix, allocating turning and pulling power between the front and rear wheels via several differentials. Factor in the precision cornering of standard Active Torque Vectoring. The result's clear: you're in for an exciting ride.

Safe to a Tee

It'll be one reined in for peace of mind, too. Optional Subaru EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology, for example, makes possible adapting to traffic speeds around Worcester, braking before a collision, and staying in-lane, and best of all, if you opt for a Sport Lineartronic transmission in select trims., you get it standard. What's more, available Blind Spot Detection and Rear Cross Traffic Alert keep you situationally aware on the streets of Westborough, optional Reverse Automatic Braking simplifies keeping from backing into or over obstacles behind you while you park in Marlborough, and available Brembo® performance brakes help make the most of stopping power. You can even find optional STARLINK Safety and Security at your service, should the worst happen, capable of calling first responders and roadside assistance and more.

Supremely Comfortable and Expertly Equipped

Settle in for the outing, and in-cabin, you'll find the new WRX is all one could hope for. Under an available power-tilting, sliding-glass moonroof to let Mother Nature come along, your choice of cloth, leather-trimmed, or Ultrasuede® and leather seating options appear, available in a performance-inspired Recaro® version, heated up front, and power-adjustable for the driver. Flanked by unique WRX and available STI accents, a command center accompanies it, with optional sport gauges, one of three available STARLINK infotainment systems with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, voice activation, optional navigation, and an available 440-watt, nine-speaker Harman Kardon sound system. In short, not only can you control both your entertainment and smartphone in features in-dash. You can also set a course with ease and experience the trip with a personal soundtrack for a theme.
