WRX Premium (SLT)

The new generation Subaru WRX Premium is designed to get your heart racing. It takes an already formidable package to the next level of comfort. A performance car with real power, pure control and more fun. Aggressive, yet refined, with sophisticated style.

The 2.0-litre DOHC Direct Injection Turbocharged Boxer engine with Dual Active Valve Control system delivers more power and torque, producing an enormous 197kW of power at 5,600rpm and 350Nm of torque at 2,400-5,200rpm, providing unparalleled sports performance and drivability.

With Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, our Vehicle Dynamics Control system with Active Torque Vectoring and a fully independent double wishbone rear suspension, you’ll enjoy sharper handling, better balance and instinctive responsiveness. On the inside, the Subaru WRX carries through its performance pedigree with an advanced 4.3” Multi-Function Display with turbo boost pressure display screen and reverse camera.

The sleek instrument panel features racing style dials with red highlights and white needles for easy readability. The inherent performance spirit of the WRX is reflected in the body-hugging sports front seats and new sporty D-shaped steering wheel, giving the driver excellent feel and control.

The Subaru WRX Premium is the ultimate in both dynamic performance and luxurious creature comforts. It adds a smart key and push button start, superior harman kardon® speakers, subwoofer and amplifier, leather seat trim, electric sunroof, eight-way power driver’s seat, satellite navigation, side park camera, automatic dimming rear view mirror, high beam assist, blind-sport detection, LED and dusk sensing headlights.

And like all of our cars, the Subaru WRX Premium has been awarded the maximum 5-star occupant safety rating by ANCAP – so you know you’re in safe hands. EyeSight® Driver Assist is now available on the 2018 WRX Premium, along with a front view camera and side view camera, blind spot detection, lane change assist, rear cross traffic alert and Auto Vehicle Hold. 

With new 18" alloy wheels, updated front grille and front bumper, steering responsive headlights and red brake calipers (front only for SLT), the 2018 WRX looks as good as it goes.
