2018 Subaru WRX

All wheel drive, 270 hp, and a six-speed transmission in a four-door sports sedan. That is what you will get in the 2018 Subaru WRX (World Rally eXperimental).

While staying true to the established formula, the current WRX is a little larger than the last generation, affording a more spacious rear seat; the five-speed manual transmission became a six-speed; and higher trims now offer a CVT automatic. For 2018, the WRX has a freshened exterior, revised suspension, upgraded interior, and new EyeSight features. Despite evolving, the car feels surprisingly raw, remaining a track-ready racer aimed at the serious driving enthusiast. Acceleration is ferociously quick, and handling remains enormously capable.

Make no mistake, this is not a luxury sedan with a cushy ride. You must be truly young at heart to enjoy the real-world driving experience. All wheel drive makes this car handle fantastic in the dry and if you install a set of winter tires, this car is amazing in the wet as well. Cornering grip is astonishing. Its top speed through a double-lane-change avoidance maneuver was 59 mph -- better than the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and on the heels of the Porsche 911. It was also easy to control and instilled plenty of driver confidence.

With 268-hp on tap from its 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, the WRX takes off very quickly, sprinting to 60 mph in 6.0 seconds. The STi mod features leather seats, and comes with a 305-hp, 2.5-liter four cylinder. Interior features nice fit and finish throughout the cabin. Touch screen sound system and navigation are also available.

When you’re ready to sit behind the wheel of this legendary sports sedan, go see the nice folks at Hanson Motors Subaru in the Olympia Auto Mall and feel how impressive the 2018 WRX really is. You will be amazed. See you soon.
