Performance Embodied from Start to Finish

Performance Embodied from Start to Finish

Emerging from a legendary lineage and crafted over three decades of innovation, the All-Wheel Drive Subaru WRX embodies the most exhilarating iteration yet in the iconic WRX narrative. The journey of performance enhancements commences with amplified power, provided by a 2.4-litre direct-injected turbocharged horizontally-opposed Boxer engine. The ultra-low centre of gravity coupled with an improved* power-to-weight ratio underpins dynamic stability and brisk acceleration. The meticulously crafted body houses a chassis with heightened rigidity, ushering in refined* control, steering responsiveness, and cornering prowess. With the unveiling of the Subaru Performance Transmission, experiencing it firsthand is imperative to truly grasp the authentic sports car acceleration and efficiency it brings to the table.

Subaru Performance Transmission

Subaru Performance Transmission

Infusing sports-inspired dexterity and formidable engine prowess, the Subaru WRX Sportswagon AWD is endowed with the 8-speed Subaru Performance Transmission, a feature also available on selected sedan models. This transmission suite integrates the Sport Lineartronic® gearbox, Variable Torque Distribution, and Sports Shifting Control, creating a seamless synergy of performance elements. By facilitating around 30% swifter upshifts and approximately 50% rapid downshifts, the Subaru Performance Transmission elevates the driving experience with its revamped, more assertive shift logic. This advancement yields a faster and more intuitive response to driver inputs, ensuring each journey is not only more enjoyable but also deeply engaging.

Turbocharged Boxer Engine

Turbocharged Boxer Engine

The essence of Subaru WRX is animated by the legendary turbocharged horizontally-opposed Boxer engine alongside the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system. Unlike conventional engines, the Boxer is engineered to occupy a lower and flatter stance within the engine bay, a design nuance that minimises noise and vibration in the cabin. This lowered centre of gravity enhances stability, cornering precision, and road traction, encapsulating a harmony of performance and comfort.

Aerodynamic Excellence

Aerodynamic Excellence

The design of the Subaru WRX AWD transcends aesthetic appeal, embracing enhanced aerodynamics. Through meticulous management of airflow around and through the vehicle, engineers have sculpted a WRX that exhibits diminished lift. This aerodynamic finesse translates to a more tactile steering experience for the driver, along with heightened vehicle stability, embodying a blend of aesthetics and performance engineering.

Drive It Your Way

Drive It Your Way

Unrivalled driver control is delivered via the distinctive 3-mode Subaru Intelligent Drive (SI-Drive)1, and Drive Mode Select2 on selected variants, which give the driver integrated control over key vehicle systems. This powerful combination delivers vehicle stability and driver control, with tailored steering response characteristics, dynamic handling and exhilarating torque.

Precision-Tuned Suspension

Precision-Tuned Suspension

The WRX steps up its game with an improved suspension system, making its sharp handling even better. You'll notice a smoother ride whether you're turning corners, steering straight, or just driving along, thanks to better shock absorbers, a stronger framework, and high-quality tires. This upgrade ensures a better grip on the road and a more stable, comfortable drive.

Manual transmission

Driver Monitoring System

Subaru addresses driver distraction and fatigue head-on with its Driver Monitoring System – Driver Focus (DMS)¹ featured in select variants. This forward-thinking system diligently observes the driver's focus to mitigate accident risks. Employing near-infrared LEDs and a camera, the advanced DMS¹ discerns lapses in the driver’s attention or signs of fatigue, triggering an alert to prompt the driver to refocus on the journey ahead. Adding a touch of personalisation, the system's adept facial recognition technology can distinguish up to five different drivers, effortlessly tailoring the cabin ambience to their liking – from climate control adjustments to Multi-Information Display (MID) settings. In certain variants, the system extends its customisation to auto-adjusting the driver's seat and door mirror positions². The Subaru WRX AWD tS and WRX Sportswagon AWD tS models further enrich the driving experience with the Drive Mode Select memory function. ¹Driver Monitoring System (DMS) is not available on Subaru WRX AWD standard manual and Sport Lineartronic® transmission. The performance and capability of the Driver Monitoring System may vary based on environmental and technical conditions. Please refer to the Owner's Manual for comprehensive details. ²Auto door mirror and driver seat adjustments are exclusively available on Subaru WRX AWD RS Sport Lineartronic®, WRX AWD tS Sport Lineartronic®, WRX Sportswagon AWD GT, and WRX Sportswagon AWD tS models.

EyeSight®Driver Assist

The upgraded EyeSight® Driver Assist¹ system, globally acclaimed for its preventative safety measures, employs high-resolution stereo colour cameras to identify possible hazards and obstructions ahead. Now heightened in vigilance, it offers a suite of features that extend warnings, along with braking and steering interventions designed to alleviate driver strain, avert accidents, and safeguard lives. Newly introduced to the Subaru WRX is the Lane Centering Function, which synergises with Adaptive Cruise Control to assist in maintaining lane positioning. The Speed Sign Recognition displays the detected speed limit for the driver, whereas the Intelligent Speed Limiter can autonomously set the speed limiter to the identified limit. Additional features encompass Autonomous Emergency Steering and Emergency Lane Keep Assist. The core functionalities also encompass a Pre-Collision Braking System, Lane Departure Warning, Pre-Collision Throttle Management, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lead Vehicle Start Alert, Lane Departure Prevention, and Lane Sway Warning, contributing to a robust safety framework.

Subaru's Vision Assist

A vigilant co-pilot for your journey, Subaru's Vision Assist harnesses radar technology and integrated cameras to discern vehicles and obstacles beyond your field of view, broadening your awareness of the surroundings. Standardly equipped, Vision Assist, when paired with EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology on certain variants, bestows drivers with an enhanced perceptual edge, bolstering preventative safety measures.

Maximum Visibility

Central to Subaru's safety ethos is the enhancement of driver visibility, a principle that steered the design trajectory of the Subaru WRX. Modifications around the A-pillar and C-pillar blind spots have been made to boost visibility, aiding drivers in swiftly and effortlessly spotting potential hazards, particularly while manoeuvring through tight corners or bustling parking areas. While Subaru may not have command over every road variable, the incorporation of eight SRS airbags in the Subaru WRX, inclusive of the front passenger seat cushion airbag, serves as a mitigative measure to lessen the likelihood of severe injuries during significant mishaps.

Subaru Global Platform

The Subaru WRX is grounded upon a meticulously crafted body structure and the Subaru Global Platform, encompassing a ring-shaped passenger safety cell that envelops occupants. This design is intended to channel and dissipate the forces of a collision around the cabin, as opposed to through it. Additionally, the chassis structure is devised with crushable zones, which are capable of absorbing collision energy, thereby offering an effective shield for passengers.

Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive for tenacious grip

A cornerstone of Subaru WRX's performance attributes is its Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. Perfected over decades of rally endeavours, this setup fosters inherent balance from the ground up, channelling optimal engine power to all four wheels for augmented traction across varying terrains. With concurrent power distribution, the Subaru WRX showcases a gripping capacity that doubles that of traditional vehicles, translating to enhanced balance, stability, and a heightened sense of handling assurance. Complementing this, the EyeSight® Driver Assist system, alongside Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC), encompasses a spectrum of stability and braking technologies that intervene to uphold the safety of both driver and passengers.

Preventing accidents

Adhering to Subaru's Preventative Safety ethos, the objective is to avert accidents by identifying prospective hazards on the roadway ahead of time and responding aptly through a myriad of sophisticated safety technologies. A combination of front and side cameras, coupled with a reversing camera, remain vigilantly observant to enhance your safety on the road, minimise blind spots, and ensure pedestrian protection.
