The all-new 2015 Subaru WRX took center stage at this year’s Los Angeles Auto Show on November 20, 2013. Subaru enthusiasts have been waiting all year for its grand debut, after all, the WRX has been a favorite among all-weather sports sedans with its turbocharged engine and top-notch all-wheel-drive system since they first appeared in 1992. The 2015 WRX has been redesigned from top to bottom and is more impressive than ever.
So what is new 2015 WRX?
The most noticeable change is that Subaru has removed the hatchback body, giving it a more refined look. They have also added a new hood scoop and wider-set headlights as well as a larger air intake giving the WRX a more aggressive yet stylish look. However, body style is not the only big change for the WRX, there are just as many under the hood. This new redesigned WRX comes with a new 2.0-liter turbocharged boxer four-cylinder engine, the same engine as the BRZ, which offers an impressive 268 horsepower. Paired with your choice of a Lineartronic automatic transmission with paddle shifters or a 6 or 8 speed manual transmission, the WRX is capable of taking you from 0 to 60mph in about 5.4 seconds. While you can choose between front- and all-wheel-drive, the latter choice gives you a fun to drive, responsive sports car that will take you anywhere in any weather.
Subaru to keep the momentum going in 2014 and 2015
2013 has been a big year of record-breaking sales for Subaru. They expect to continue the trend by debuting the new 2015 Subaru WRX STI next month at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan. Subaru is expecting big things to come from this next generation WRX STI as well. Although no official pictures have been released, they have divulged that it will come with a more aggressive body kit, wider body panels, and a more prominent rear wing, along with upgrades to the powertrain, brakes and suspension. For now, we can only assume that it will be just as impressive, if not more than, the next generation 2015 WRX.
