The all new 2018 WRX is designed to be the everyday rally car. It was made to enhance the driving experience whether that’s a cross country trip, a daily commute, or just running to the store because you forgot milk.
The 2018 Subaru WRX Is Built to Thrill
The moment you step on the gas, and you sink deep into your seat, the symmetrical all wheel drive digs into the road for an easy lift off and you are then taken along for the ride. As the RPMs climb higher, the sound of the twin-scroll turbocharged boxer engine roars to life. The first turn in the road is coming up, but your WRX has your back. With its track-tuned suspension, rigid unibody, and the active torque vectoring which pulls the WRX into the apex, you can take the turn as if you were on rails on a predetermined route and then the all-wheel drive will rocket you out of the turn and send you are your way.
Safety You Expect From Subaru
The thing about a Subaru is that you don’t just get one for the performance under the hood, or the all wheel drive, or even the finely tuned suspension. The safety of the vehicle is a deciding factor, and the WRX does not disappoint.
It has received the highest possible safety rating for front crash prevention from IIHS with EyeSight, which monitors traffic and warns you if you begin to shift into another lane, and a Pre-Collision Braking system that can apply full stopping power in an emergency. The WRX also has a blind-spot detection and rear cross-traffic alert system so you can be fully aware of your surroundings even if you personally can’t see them.
Stay Connected While Driving the WRX
Performance and safety of a vehicle are probably the most important aspects, but the driving experience isn’t complete without some interior bells and whistles. The WRX has a premium audio system with a 9 speaker 440 watt Harman Kardon system with dual USB ports.
With Subaru STARLINK, the WRX has navigation with live traffic updates, voice commands, diagnostic reports, and enhanced roadside assistance. Subaru STARLINK will help you stay connected even if you’re not around with remote locks, horn, lights, a vehicle locator, and maintenance notifications through your phone.
The WRX was made to push the envelope on the asphalt with the all wheel drive and turbocharged boxer engine, but it really is the full package with the safety expected from the Subaru name and connection within the car that almost seems space-age.
