Designed to Dominate Corners

Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive

The balanced design of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive creates uniform stability and delivers an optimal distribution of power for maximum traction, which means you can confidently rocket out of corners on the track, kick up dirt on back roads, and head out on a road trip in all kinds of conditions.

Standard on: All WRX and WRX STI models


Track-Tuned Suspension

The high-performance track-tuned suspension on the WRX features aggressive spring and damper rates, large front and rear anti-roll bars, and wide summer tires for tremendous grip and control. The double-wishbone rear suspension with pillow ball bushings enables flat cornering while the rigid unibody with reinforced suspension mounting points creates the ideal platform for the best-handling WRX ever.

Standard on: All WRX models


Vehicle Dynamics Control with Active Torque Vectoring 

Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC) with Active Torque Vectoring sharpens cornering response for tighter lines through every turn. It actively reduces understeer so the apex of every corner is just an easy turn of the wheel away.

Standard on: All WRX and WRX STI models


Quick-Ratio Steering and Aluminum Front Lower Control Arms 

Electric power steering with a quick 14.4:1 ratio creates a sharp turn-in and excellent on-center feel. Aluminum front lower control arms reduce unsprung weight and pivot on pillow ball bushings for instant response.

Standard on: All WRX models

Breathtaking Performance

Direct-Injection Turbocharged SUBARU BOXER® Engine 

Drawn from over 40 years of intelligent performance, the unique SUBARU BOXER® engine has pistons that move side to side, canceling out each other’s vibrations so it can run smoother and more efficiently. This horizontal layout also offers better balance while delivering a maximum transfer of power. The 268-hp direct-injection turbocharged engine features a twin-scroll turbocharger for near-instant boost response and maximum power across a wide power band, delivering 258 pound-feet of torque from 2,000 to 5,200 RPM.
