Read our overview of the Subaru WRX’s most notable features below and find out what makes this car a favorite in its class.

First Look at the 2019 Subaru WRX


Subaru’s Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive delivers the stability and power distribution the WRX needs to cut around corners and navigate tight roads with ease. The WRX also comes with Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC) and Active Torque Vectoring, which sharpens cornering response and actively reduces understeer, further enhancing turning capabilities and fully maximizing the car’s handling.


The WRX’s unique Direct-Injection Turbocharged SUBARU BOXER delivers 268 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine’s pistons move side to side, canceling out each other’s vibrations, and the horizontal layout provides better balance while delivering maximum power. This results in a smoother, more efficient, and more balanced ride.


The WRX doesn’t just excel in driving, but in user experience as well. This model comes equipped with STARLINK® Multimedia, which connects you with music, navigation, and much more, right from your dashboard. Pair your smartphone and access various apps, such as iHeartRadio®, Yelp, Pandora®, and Magellan, all through intuitive voice control.


Safety is one of the most important features of any vehicle, and Subaru understands this. The WRX is available with EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology, which includes features like Pre-Collision Braking, Blind-Spot Detection, and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. All of these features watch out for you when you might have trouble seeing threats by yourself.
