Powerful turbocharged engine 

Without question, one of the best reasons to buy a Subaru WRX is because it is offered with two powerful engine choices. WRX models come standard with a turbocharged 2.0-litre 4-cylinder boxer engine that gets 268 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Meanwhile, STI models come standard with a turbocharged 2.5-litre 4-cylinder boxer engine that gets 305 horsepower and 290 pound-feet of torque.

Very fun to drive 

The 2017 Subaru WRX isn’t really designed for those who require tons of creature comforts. Instead, it’s meant for people who want to feel speed and power at their fingertips. Handling is exceptional, and cornering is a dream. Thanks to the all-wheel-drive, which comes standard on all models, it also offers excellent traction even when traveling on wet, slick roads.

Standard all-wheel-drive

Because the 2017 WRX is designed with speed and power in mind, it makes sense that all models come standard with all-wheel-drive. This configuration makes the most of the two turbocharged engines as well as the six-speed manual and continuously variable transmission. Drivers who live in wet or snowy areas will especially appreciate this touch.

Effective safety features 

It’s easy to stay safe while behind the wheel of the latest Subaru WRX thanks to the many standard safety features that are included in all models. These include driver knee, side curtain, and front-seat side airbags; antilock disc brakes; traction and stability control; and active front head restraints. Optional safety features include a lane departure warning system, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert.

Great standard features

Base models of the Subaru WRX for 2017 include an array of compelling standard features. The base WRX trim includes a rearview camera, a trunk lid spoiler, automatic climate control, cruise control, a 60/40-split-folding back seat, Bluetooth, sporty front seats with cloth upholstery and the Starlink six-speaker infotainment system with a 6.2″ touchscreen interface, an auxiliary audio jack, smartphone app integration, a USB port, and a CD player.
