Subaru WRX

The Rally-Bred Legend

There is no other sports compact car that has matched the legend that is the Subaru WRX and WRX STI. From rally championships to action movies, no other car can match the credibility earned on the roads and road courses of Auburn. This high performance design along with the Subaru brand's reliability and longevity, makes it ideal for your next vehicle.

What makes the 2021 Subaru WRX and WRX STI legends in their own right?

Design

Foremost, the WRX is designed as a sports sedan, offering the perfect balance of raw power, precision steering, maximum capacity and capability for its dedicated owners. It is also designed for ultimate excitement - with its body kit and aggressive styling details. The WRX STi adds to this sports sedan design with its big rear spoiler and aluminum hood with a large air intercooler intake scoop on top. 

All WRX STI models have standard Lightweight 19-inch sleek alloy wheels in a Y-shaped spoke design that will definitely turn heads. 


Performance

The 2021 WRX comes with a choice of two horizontally opposed turbocharged engines. Having a turbocharger attached to either WRX model offers great benefits, the punch of power as the engine comes up on boost makes it easy to merge and dart through traffic on the surface streets or merging on the freeway.

WRX models get a 2.0 liter turbocharged and intercooled four-cylinder engine with 268 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. It provides supreme power for anything it is asked to do while returning good fuel economy - up to 27 MPG on the highway. WRX STI models have the 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 305 horsepower and 290 pound-feet of torque for extreme power.

The horizontal layout of the Boxer® Engine allows for better balance and less vibration between pistons, which lets the engine perform more efficiently and effectively, as can be seen in the stats above. Gearheads will tell you working on a Boxer® Engine is more like working on an aircraft engine. It is made to soar!

 

Both engines are connected to a six-speed manual transmission. A Sport Lineartronic® CVT transmission with SI-Drive is available on the WRX only.

Track-Tuned Suspension allows for aggressive spring and damper rates. Double-wishbone rear suspension with pillow ball bushings, large front and rear anti-roll bars, wide tires, and rigid unibody with reinforced suspension brings the motorsport feel and the most responsive handling to the grip of your hands on the steering wheel. Vehicle Dynamics Control with Active Torque and Electric power steering further sharpens cornering and actively reduces understeer and gives instantaneous response to your command.

6-Piston Front and 2-Piston Rear Brembo Brakes are found on all WRX STI models. The easily recognizable yellow-finished monoblock calipers and large cross-drilled rotors give WRX very responsive braking with good feel and fade resistance.

Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive

Only Subaru offers standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive for superb traction all year round. The design of the system is rooted in its horizontally-opposed engines, which provide a lower center of gravity for better traction and performance. The standard Active Torque Split contributes to the AWD by also distributing power between the two axles depending on actual throttle response. Active Torque Vectoring is an enhancement on the standard Vehicle Dynamics Control stability and traction control system. It allows for more neutral cornering, even on the track.

WRX STI models offer the further enhancement of the new Multi-Mode Driver Controlled Center Differential providing optimum differential control for improved vehicle cornering, stability, and handling. In all, the all-wheel-drive system can not only make you a track or rallycross star, but a winter warrior when the going gets tough.

Cabin Design

The WRX cabin feels more like a cockpit for you to rocket out onto the road in. The instrument panel is well laid out and all controls are easily accessible, whether handsfree or not. A clean, driver-focused instrument cluster, superb controls, and great visibility enhance the overall driving experience. Contrast stitching, accents, multiple interior color options and available footwell illumination kit makes you feel like you are preparing for take-off. WRX seats five, with 60/40-split-folding rear seats and 12.0 cubic feet of trunk space behind the rear seats. WRX STI and WRX STI LIMITED can enjoy Recaro Performance Seats with 8 way power driver's adjustment and ergonomic comfort.

Technology

STARLINK is how a Subaru driver communicates, stays informed, and entertains. It is a hub of connected services, now including smartphone connections to utilize apps, such as Aha and Pandora. Plus, STARLINK offers enhanced service offered by SiriusXM, including real-time traffic reporting. Certain trim levels will include Starlink Safety Plus and Security Plus packages that report accident information and stolen vehicle tracking. Depending on trim, the multimedia touch screen measures 6.2 or 7.0 inches.

The Premium Audio Package available on select trims, includes a Harman Kardon® premium audio system for a superior sound experience with clearer, crisper, more dynamic sound through Harman's ClariFi Technology that restores audio fidelity to a maximum. The eight-channel class-D amplifier offers high-performance acoustics with powerful 432 watts for maximizing those jam sessions and epic private concerts while you rally down the highway and drift through the turns.

Safety

Subaru vehicles are built to be safe and secure. The WRX is no exception. It all starts with EyeSight, the most advanced driver assistance technology in the automotive industry. It uses stereo cameras to sense the road ahead enabling such features as Adaptive Cruise Control, Pre-Collision Braking, Vehicle Lane Departure Warning, and Lane Keep Assist. It is one of the highest-rated active safety systems according to the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety. Other active safety features available on the WRX include Blind Spot Detection and Rear Cross Traffic Alert, as well as Reverse Automatic Braking and High Beam Assist when equipped with EyeSight.
