Subaru WRX/STi Overview

The redesigned WRX, with its wide fenders and muscular stance, is only available as a sedan. Its 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder produces 268 hp and an abundant 258 lb.-ft. of torque, driving all four wheels. A six-speed manual is standard, but a CVT automatic is offered, with three drive modes: Intelligent, Sport, and Sport Sharp. Power is abundant and handling is impressively nimble, but the ride is very stiff and choppy, and the shifter isn't the slickest. Still, it's among the few high-performance cars that also delivers four-door practicality. The higher-performance WRX STi has a giant wing, some transmission and suspension differences, and a stronger 305-hp engine.
