Built standard on each Subaru WRX is a 268-horsepower turbocharged Subaru Boxer engine. It utilizes a horizontal design that allows for better balance with the pistons moving side to side. This translates to fewer vibrations, while still providing power when you need it. Its 258 pound-feet of torque is managed on a wide powerband that ranges from 2000-5200 RPM from the twin-scroll turbocharger. Other performance features on the WRX include a high-performance braking system. As part of the Performance package, the Jurid upgraded brake pads help provide added fade resistance compared to standard brake pads.

When you combine the Subaru Boxer engine with the available Sport Lineartronic transmission, you don’t have to choose between having an automatic or manual transmission. You can switch to two different manual modes that use six or eight speeds. Paddle shifters mounted on the steering wheel make it efficient and convenient to shift.The electric power steering on the WRX is standard on all models. This enables you to have quicker turns and a faster response to adapt to a wide range of road conditions.


In your center console is the Subaru STARLINK Multimedia system. You can wirelessly connect your Android or Apple device with ease. The system has native compatibility with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and can let you stream from your Pandora account without having a device connected. Some apps are prebuilt into the system for easy navigation. In addition to making hands-free calls, you can play some of your favorite music, listen to podcasts, and use some of your other favorite apps right on the seven-inch touch screen.

To help make your music sound great, the WRX can be equipped with a nine-speaker audio system from Harman Kardon. You can connect and charge up to two USB devices with the dual USB ports and can connect your smartphone with ease.


Driver assist technology is becoming standard on more vehicles, and the Subaru WRX builds on this with the EyeSight system. This system makes use of cameras and radar sensors around your WRX to monitor and detect the traffic around you. Think of it as an extra set of eyes that are designed to assist you with visual and audio warnings. The EyeSight system can even detect when you’ve started to leave your lane without using turn signals and notifies you when you do. By keeping track of the traffic ahead of you, the system can adjust the speed automatically so that your feet don’t need to constantly hit the brakes while in traffic.

Your headlights can even be connected to the EyeSight system with the High Beam Assist. Not only do the LED steering-responsive headlights adjust with your turns, it will also automatically change between low and high settings when oncoming vehicles approach.


When you’re headed out on a road trip near Rindge, you want to make sure that you have everything you need for the trip. The Subaru WRX comes with 12 cubic feet of storage space in the trunk, with extra room available with the standard roof racks. You have the room you need for you and your passengers since the WRX has best-in-class passenger volume. When needed, the rear seats can also be folded down in a 60-40 style to give you extra room as needed.

For that extra performance feel, you’ll find that the WRX STI Limited come standard with Recaro Performance seats. This leather-trimmed design comes complete with the Recaro logo on the back and give you the feel of being in a cockpit of a racecar. The eight-way power seating will enable you to adjust the seating to best match your comfort.
