Performance Features.

WRX. Packed with a turbocharger that works with a lightweight intercooler to boost output and response, the WRX delivers 244 lb-ft of torque to all four wheels for acceleration you won't need a stopwatch to appreciate. Grab the shifter and launch into performance that never relents.

WRX Brakes. Large disc brakes at all four wheels for impressive stopping power and the Antilock Braking System (ABS) for control keep a secure leash on WRX acceleration. Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) helps optimize braking power for the best performance when you really need it.

WRX Transmission. 5-speed Manual. Lightweight and smooth shifting and with a leather-wrapped shift knob, the standard 5-speed manual is designed for a responsive connection between enthusiast and car.

WRX Suspension. Sport Tuned Suspension. A 4-wheel independent suspension designed for conquering both challenging courses and real-world driving comes standard on WRX. Front and rear stabilizer bars make for handling that's always tight and exciting. Front struts help create the ideal balance of stability and precision, and the double-wishbone rear suspension smooth's rough surfaces without upsetting the chassis.

STI. WRX STI unleashes 305 horses and 290 lb-ft of viscous torque with the help of a higher-boost turbocharger with intercooler. It's the output of intense turning and hardcore honing that extends to every component of the car. From the moment you fire it up, you'll feel every bit.

STI Brakes. The power of the STI is reigned in by a performance Brembo braking system with powerful ventilated front and rear disc brakes – the front discs span 13 inches – with 4-piston front and dual-piston rear calipers. For added confidence, they're aided by Super Sport ABS with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD).

STI Transmission. 6-speed Manual. Hand-built for ultimate hands-on control. With short, smooth strokes through a gearing range fine-tuned for performance response, you'll be able to extract the maximum.

STI Suspension. High Performance Sport-tuned Suspension. More precise. More intense. WRX STI features and enhanced suspension system that's low and has increased spring rates, thick front and rear sway bars and stiff rear sub-frame bushings for intuitive feedback and stunningly immediate response. It also features front lower suspension arms with pillow ball bushings, which increase stability, maximize tire contact and reduce understeer during cornering.

Drive Tech.

WRX - Performance everyday. Inspired by years of success of racing on all surfaces and passionate drivers around the globe. WRX has been designed to thrive in the most demanding environment of all: the real world.

Active Valve Control System. While turbocharging boosts power by pumping more air into each cylinder, the Subaru Active Valve Control System (AVCS) on the WRX makes sure to deliver the air at precisely the right moment for better response at any speed.

Vehicle Dynamics Control. Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC) is traction control that senses vehicle direction and uses brake, throttle and engine management to help maintain stability. When the wheels are spinning without traction or the vehicle is not going in the direction it is being steered, the VDC system kicks in.

Continuous All-wheel Drive. Normally 50/50 front-to-back power split, continuous AWD uses a mechanical viscous type center differential to vary the power split when there is a loss of traction. So you get more control, and more acceleration from every ounce of power.

STI – Performance you can dial. For those who consider speed and precision to be forms of self-expression, the WRX STI features advanced technologies that allow you to personalize its performance to the road or track.

Dual Active Valve Control System. Dual Active Valve Control System utilizes both the intake and exhaust camshafts to provide optimal air flow in and out of the engine, creating freer breathing and more force.

Multi-mode Vehicle Dynamics Control. The unique Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC) found on the WRX STI combines high performance with higher confidence. In Normal mode, this integrated system engages the brakes and cuts power to help keep you on your line if it detects a loss of control. But for more edgy performance, switch VDC to Traction mode and you'll increase the threshold before the system intervenes. It'll allow you to drive closer to the car's limits, and it won't cut engine power, so your right foot will stay in charge. And if you happen to get stuck in mud or snow, you can even turn off VDC to help the tires dig out.

Driver Controlled Center Differential. With an array of sensors monitoring everything from yaw rate to steering and braking, DCCD set to Auto mode keeps an eye on your vehicle and your driving and optimizes the distribution of power in real time – giving you exceptional control and the best all-around performance. Or, you can customize how it distributes power between the front and rear wheels. Select auto Minus (-), and it sends more power to the rear wheels for greater handling agility. Auto Plus (+) keeps more power in front – increasing your grip on the road. You can even fine-tune the DCCD with Manuel mode. It offers six levels of adjustment, so you can lock the distribution of power to your personal preference.

SI-Drive. Tailor the way the engine and throttle respond to your input. SI-Drive allows you to quickly adjust the mapping of the Engine Control Module (ECM) to tailor throttle response – taking the WRX STI from smooth and efficient to completely unrestrained. In intelligent mode, it relaxes the throttle to help maximize efficiency, and to give smooth takeoffs – perfect for slick roads. Sport mode offers linear acceleration and eager response with plenty of top end power. And when you want quicker access to all 305 horsepower, put it in Sport Sharp, and you'll have thrilling, immediate response and blistering acceleration.

Enthusiasts. Enthusiasm is contagious.

The Passion for a Subaru goes way beyond a wave or a nod to a fellow owner on the road. All over the world and all over the internet, loyal enthusiasts – united by their passion for life and for Subaru - gather for rallies, events, or just to talk about their favorite mods.

Performance: Full time. Full effect.

Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. It takes traction to turn power into action. Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive uses all four wheels to grab as much as asphalt as possible. It's balanced side-to-side for stability. And it's designed to efficiently route power directly to each wheel all the time to maximize your grip of the road.

Cornering. Subaru Symmetrical AWD supplies power to each wheel for more precise, neutral cornering – unlike rear-wheel drive or front-wheel drive, which can cause oversteer and understeer. What's more, its symmetrical layout gifts the WRX and the STI with uncommon fore, aft and lateral balance for inspiring predictability and enhanced precision.

Take-offs. Because every Subaru is built with all-wheel drive, Subaru Symmetrical AWD transfers power with a minimum of components – minimizing frictional power losses. Also, each wheel is engaged during take-off so there's more grip to send every ounce of power straight to the surface of the road. Simplicity can be oh so electrifying.

All-weather Conditions. Whether it's slick or unforeseen weather conditions, your WRX and WRX STI are equipped to handle the stress. With the exceptional traction and control of Subaru AWD you and your ride are always ready for whatever comes your way.

All-road Conditions. By continuously grabbing for every bit of traction possible, and helping react to slippage when it occurs, Subaru AWD helps give you the freedom to tackle rough or loose road surfaces with confidence.

Performance: Respect the power of balance.

Subaru Boxer Engine. Balance is control. It's eagerness and mastery. It's power in perfect proportion. Subaru puts performance in balance with an engine unlike any offered by our competitors. The SUBARU BOXER® Engine features a low profile, symmetrical design that puts the weight of the engine lower and in line with the vehicle for better response and control.

Horizontally Opposed Design. The pistons move in 180-degree opposition to each other on a horizontal plane, so each naturally cancels out the vibration of the piston opposite it. Smoother Operation. Step on the accelerator and the revs come on smooth. While there's plenty of power when you need it, it helps enhance your comfort and control.

Durable Construction. The engine's flat design is inherently rigid, and reduces the amount of vibration that “V” or inline engines-with more upright pistons-are subjected to during operation. Increased durability. An engine subjected to less vibration lasts longer. It's no wonder 96% of Subaru vehicles built in the last 10 years are still on the road today.

Low Center of Gravity. The flatter profile and perfectly symmetrical design of the engine block, and the fact that it sits lower in the chassis, make the overall vehicle more balanced and nimble versus other designs. Greater Agility. The vehicle responds more quickly to changes in direction, which gives a feeling of tightness in turns. And it's more likely to feel stable during maneuvers, giving you an increased feeling of being in control at all times.

Let passion unfold.

Our connection to our owners and the life they live is forever unfolding at Subaru. Select any of the tabs below to see how.
