For 2 years we should expect the redesigned Subaru WRX to come chock full of latest functions and technologies including but not limited to plenty of premium safety equipment, strong acceleration, regular AWD system, improved traction, and outstanding steering and handling. Its release day should be expected sometime later this year.
Some of the refreshing features to expect from the WRX include a brand new special STI edition called the Series Hyper Blue, an upgraded touchscreen interface, as well as driver assistance packages. The vehicle, just like the earlier 2015 model, still comes with similar loads of power and upscale performance all offered at a very pocket friendly price.
The vehicle’s performance is unmatched in its segment, using its acceleration from 0-60 mph even for your standard model being under the six second mark. It is also very fun even when the road gets a bit twisty thanks to the actual available standard all-wheel-drive system, nimble dealing with, and precise steering. Opting for the new Subaru WRX STI simply ups the bet.
On the flipside, though, the interior appointments are not that upscale as you’d expect, and also the cabin fails to insulate its occupants from the significant amount of road noise and blowing wind at high speeds. For those who might be switched away from the WRX due to the above disadvantages, there are several alternatives waiting to be exploited such as Minin Cooper JCW, Focus ST, and also the VW Golf GTI.
