The Subaru WRX is a precision rally car in street car guise. What do you need to know before you buy a Subaru WRX? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you in our Ultimate Buyer’s Guide.
Before we get into the opinions about the new 2015 Subaru WRX, let's get some basic facts out of the way. It still has 268 horsepower. It still has full-time all-wheel-drive. And now it has the long-heralded infinitely-geared scepter of driving fun death, a Continuously Variable Transmission. But let me blow your…
The 2015 Subaru WRX has turned out to be an impressive performer and a worthy update to a car we all love. But it's been a disappointment in the body department, first because it didn't look like the white-hot concept from last year and then because Subaru announced a hatch version wasn't in the cards. Is that about…
High-level trolling: Subaru is not above it. How else do you explain the all-wheel drive, turbocharged, rally bred sedan they've taken to calling the Subaru WRX S4? A month after its shadowy preview, the full car has debuted online, and I'm insanely curious what Audi has to say.
Like its predecessors, the 2015 Subaru WRX is fast like a cheetah, devours corners like a lion and can make all your rally champion dreams come true. Including the parts about crashing. (Update: They appear to be crash test cars.)
With both Mad Men and The Good Wife currently on, I get plenty of drama from TV. I don't need it from Subaru, too. Unfortunately, the latest chapter in the Subaru WRX hatchback will-they or won't-they is that they won't be making another one.
There's no finer fight than a good, old-fashioned sibling rivalry. That's exactly what Subaru has brewed up between the 2015 WRX and STI. With it's all-new direct-injection turbo 2.0-liter four, the WRX boasts a far more sophisticated heart compared to the STI's old 2.5-liter lump.
But which is the brawnier brother? We…
The big wing. It's the first thing you notice. It's like Subaru mounted a billboard on the back of the 2015 Subaru WRX STI that simultaneously creates downforce and repels women of all ages. No fat chicks, fat downforce. This is not a car that will get you laid, not that it really matters.
You're always told to not judge someone by how they look. They might look anonymous, but they might also be caring, hilarious, or just plain fun when you talk to them. The 2015 Subaru WRX is Droopy Dog from the outside, but Usain Bolt and Jerry Seinfeld under the skin. This is a car you have to know.
Since its 2012 debut, the Ford Focus ST has been the darling of the hot hatch world. It looks cool, it handles better than any front-driver has a right to, and it has power and torque out the wazoo. But can it handle the all-new WRX?
I quite like the look of the 2015 Subaru WRX in pictures, but in person, it ain't so hot. Here's a bit better view of how Corolla-esque the Rex has become.
The last Subaru WRX was, for lack of a better term, ugly as sin. This 2015 Subaru WRX isn't ugly. It has a bigger problem. It's boring.
Here it is, ladies and gentlemen. The car that's coming soon to a rally, track day, autocross event, twisty back road or ditch near you: the 2015 Subaru WRX, arguably the standard-bearer for affordable performance sedans.
We'll see the 2015 Subaru WRX in the flesh next week at the LA Auto Show, but one detail just slid across our desk that is rather interesting. The WRX will be available with a CVT or a manual transmission.
I don't know about you folks, but I thought that picture of what might be the 2015 Subaru WRX left a lot to be desired. Fortunately, this render of a WRX STI version proves that rally blue paint, a huge wing and gold wheels make everything look better.
