Thrilling performance, every drive

The sheer power of the Subaru WRX will get your adrenaline racing. It proves beyond doubt that it's aggressive, wide-body styling is backed by a pure performance pedigree.

The new 2.0-litre DOHC turbocharged Direct Injection Boxer engine with Electronic Throttle Control and Dual Active Valve Control System that delivers torque early in the rev range producing an enormous 197kW of power at 5700rpm and 350Nm of torque at 2400-5200rpm, providing sports performance and drivability.

But with all this power comes ultimate control - thanks to Symmetrical All Wheel Drive, our Vehicle Dynamics Control system and a fully independent double wishbone rear suspension system that gives you sharper handling, better balance and instinctive responsiveness.
