Introducing the 2017 Subaru WRX and WRX STI, the latest in a long line of legendary road cars with serious race credentials. These performance cars feature more refined styling that still manages to deliver a menacing message. Inside, the theme continues with a driver-oriented cockpit that includes a wide range of desirable features that bring added comfort and convenience to the everyday drive. Under the surface, the same core technology that has powered these legends — the high-output, turbocharged SUBARU BOXER engine and Subaru symmetrical full-time AWD — is back for another round. These potent cars also boast enhanced tuning and the latest technologies, which combine to produce greater response, sharper handling and unmatched levels of control.
The spine-tingling SUBARU BOXER
The 2017 WRX features a turbocharged, direct-injection 2.0L 4-cylinder SUBARU BOXER that balances powerful performance with optimal fuel efficiency. The twin-scroll turbocharger sees peak torque arrive at 2000 rpm and creates a longer, flatter torque curve for better response and improved driveability. Speaking of response, few engines can match the turbocharged 2.5L 4-cylinder SUBARU BOXER of the WRX STI. This mighty powerplant produces unmatched throttle response and offers an exhilarating driving experience overall. For raw power fused with complete poise, there’s nothing like it. Both versions of the turbocharged SUBARU BOXER incorporate a high-efficiency intercooler for reliable performance and both benefit from the inherently smooth operation of the horizontally opposed configuration.
