Introducing the Newly Revamped Subaru WRX and WRX STI


When you're searching for a sporty, high-performance car with the security and reliability of Subaru's Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, there's only one choice. The Subaru WRX.

For 2018, Subaru has refreshed their speed demon WRX and its even sportier trim, the WRX STI. Here at Island Subaru, we welcome these changes to one of our favorite models.

The Subaru WRX is a four-door sedan that seats five. But, it's a very different animal from the sedate sedans you're used to. It's also unique in the automotive world, as a racecar at heart, but with the all-wheel drive of a sensible Subaru.

The 2018 Subaru WRX

For 2018, the WRX retains the core personality that has earned it the much-deserved cult following it enjoys, but Subaru has made a couple of changes. Among the changes include a redesigned frontend, updated suspension and revamped steering tuning.

Subaru has also redesigned the interior cabin to offer drivers and passengers a quieter ride, with thicker glass and more insulation to dull outside sound.

For 2018, Subaru has made the WRX available in several trim levels, including:

  • WRX Base
  • WRX Premium
  • WRX Limited
  • WRX STI Limited

There are a couple of different engines in the WRX model, including a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that offers drivers 268 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque on the regular WRX, or an intensely powerful 2.5-liter engine with 305 horsepower and 290 pound-feet of torque on the supercharged WRX STI versions.

Regardless of the trim, every WRX comes with a long list of great standard features, and you can add more and more as you go up trim levels. Standard equipment on every WRX includes a rear seat that folds in a 60/40 split to expand cargo space, a rearview backup camera, a touchscreen infotainment system, and heated side mirrors.
