The 2018 Subaru WRX is a sporty sedan that has a track-inspired design. Both models have high-performance features under the hood, such as the turbocharged BOXER engine. Trunk spoilers and underspoilers add aerodynamic utility and aggressive styling to these WRX models. Additionally, Subaru's signature STARLINK technology connects you to awesome entertainment, reliable guidance and other applications.


Running on the Direct Injection Turbocharged (DIT) technology, the 2.0 L BOXER engine is standard in the 2018 WRX Subaru Premium and Limited. When this horizontally opposed, four-cylinder engine revolves at 2,000 RPM or above, it produces a peak torque of 258 pound-feet. This signature powertrain has a maximum output of 258 horsepower and 5,600 RPM. Both WRX models are equipped with a six-speed manual transmission system that has carbon components in the first and second ratios. The Incline Start Assist is included in this fully synchronized transmission system. If you want more versatility in gear changes, select the optional Sport Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission. Up to eight gear speeds are available in the manual mode of this dynamic CVT. The Auto Vehicle Hold applies extra braking force on inclined roads and hills. Staying true to tradition, both Subaru trims roll on the standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. Tuned for sporty performance on the track, the Variable Torque Distribution AWD is also available for the WRX Premium and Limited editions.
