Learn about the Subaru WRX


Subaru vehicles are often associated with power and performance, and the WRX is a prime example. The sporty sedan has earned an enviable reputation for its impressive handling and fast acceleration. This comes from the Subaru Boxer Engine and all-wheel drive system standard across all models, which has become something of a calling card for the vehicle range over the generations. It’s also the reason you’ll often see WRX’s featured in rally racing. You’re looking at some of the best all-wheel drive cars out there, and that goes for the older models as much as the new.
