Subaru unveiled the fifth generation of the WRX today, with the model based on the SGP (Subaru Global Platform) platform and powered by a 2.4-liter turbo boxer engine producing 275 hp with 350 Nm of torque.
The engine is mated to either a 6-speed manual transmission or the Subaru Performance Transmission CVT, with all-wheel drive. The CVT transmission has 8-speed manual operation, with changes also made via the paddles on the steering wheel.
The rigidity of the car frame has been increased by 28%, with the rigidity at the point of attachment of the suspension having been increased by 75%. The suspension travel has been increased, increasing the car’s stability as well as grip on uneven surfaces. The rear anti-roll bar is mounted directly on the body and not on the subframe.
The new WRX has LED headlights, air intake on the hood and a hexagonal grille, larger than the previous generation, with the front wings made of aluminum, which results in a weight reduction of 2.3 kg.
Inside we find an 11-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, a large 11.6 touch screen that supports Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Bluetooth, bucket seats and a sports steering wheel.
