The 2018 Subaru WRX is destined to rule the road. Sporty and high-powered, the sport sedan is a rare breed with its performance engines and all-wheel drivetrains. Let's take a look at this exciting four-door car.

Performance

The 2018 Subaru WRX has two basic speeds, fast and faster. The base engine generates 268 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque. Drivers harness its power with a fully synchronized six-speed manual transmission, or they can grab the paddle shifters on a Sport Lineartronic™ automatic. All-wheel drive benefits from active torque vectoring for the best cornering at speed. You can step up to the 2.5-liter turbo. To control its 290 lb.-ft. of torque, the driver utilizes the Subaru Intelligent Drive multi-mode system and a close-ratio six-speed manual. Subaru upgrades the quick-ratio power-assisted steering and the sport-tuned 4-wheel independent suspension to make the most of the car's 305 horsepower. Ensuring optimized handling, the 2.5-liter editions have DCCD All-wheel Drive which combines a planetary-gear-type center differential and an electronic limited-slip differential. This helical front feature is paired with a Torsen rear differential.

Interior

With racy red stitching, the performance-design front seat over the bolstering that driving enthusiasts need. The leather-clad steering wheel wears a similar red accent. Cloth upholstery can be exchanged for leather or a combination of leather and Ultrasuede®. Power-adjusting seats may include individual seat heaters. The automatic climate control system and 60/40 split-fold rear seat are standards. Starlink multimedia comes with a 6.2-inch or 7-inch screen. Music sources include Pandora®, Stitcher™, iHeart®, HD Radio®, SiriusXM® and Aha™ smartphone app integration. Audiophiles may want the nine-speaker Harmon Kardon® system.

Safety

Needing extra stopping power, the WRX has four-wheel ventilated disc brakes. Brake Assist adds emergency stopping power when crisis braking is detected. A brake override system favors the brakes over the accelerator if both are pushed simultaneously. On the fastest editions, a Brembo performance braking system includes cross-drilled discs, six-piston front and dual-piston rear calipers, and 4-sensor Super Sport anti-lock brakes. Drivers will like the steering responsive headlights on higher editions. Crash avoidance systems are on the menu. This includes a blind spot monitor and a rear cross traffic alert with reverse automatic braking. You can also get EyeSight® Driver Assist with pre-collision forward braking, lane departure watch, and sway warning. Subaru takes your safety seriously. To protect the vulnerable driver, the car has a driver’s knee airbag and an energy-absorbing collapsible steering column. A ring-shaped reinforcement frame protects the cabin from impact force.
