The 2008 Subaru WRX was all new. Subaru improved the car by making it uglier and getting rid of the character that made the WRX so great.

For 2009, they recognized their mistake. The car was still ugly, but I have to say it looks a little less ugly sitting in a cul de sac in suburban Maryland. What they did do is re-infuse the car with some of that Subaru character.

Power goes up to 265 ponies and 244 pound feet of torque. Just look at that intercooler, that means business!

This apparently is a power tonic, something we've never ever heard of before.

Ok, enough from me. Enjoy the WRX's drive around Maryland as well as some great camera zoom action.
