SUBARU WRX   2021 2022
2021 2022

Subaru dropped the Impreza badge from the WRX version in 2014 and, by 2021, it launched the second generation of the acclaimed model on a completely different platform than the regular Impreza.
When Subaru introduced the WRX lineup as a top-performance version for the Impreza, it did it to emphasize the connection with the World Rally Championship, but FIA banned them from using the WRC lettering, thus resulting in the WRX version. By 2014, the WRX badge was even better known than the Impreza nameplate, so Subaru chose to create a different lineup named WRX.

In 2021, Fuji Heavy Industry, owner of the Subaru brand, introduced the second generation of the WRX, which didn’t share its platform with the rest of the Impreza range. The carmaker built it on its new Subaru Global Platform, and it includes more safety features than before.

The WRX featured a different front fascia with compact LED headlights and run-around daytime running lights, unlike the regular Impreza. Its hexagonal grille, with a wider upper area, sported the Subaru logo in the middle, while the front bumper was designed with a black lower side to cope better with stone chips. From its sides, the angular cuts for the wheel wells featured black plastic over fenders, similar to those used on SUVs.

Inside, the carmaker placed a tall, 11.6” touch-screen placed atop the center stack. The instrument cluster featured two wide analog dials that flanked an LCD between them for the onboard computer. For the top trim level, named GT, the carmaker added Recaro sport bucket-seats with specific embroidery.

Another important upgrade was for the 2.4-liter turbocharged flat-four engine under the hood. That sent its torque in all corners via an intelligent all-wheel-drive system via a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic gearbox.

SUBARU WRX STI S209 2018 2022
2018 2022

Not based on the fifth Subaru Impreza, which was unveiled at the 2016 New York Auto Show, but on the previous generation of the model, the WRX STI S209 is a limited edition model of the regular WRX.
The special model was revealed at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show and represents the first time that an S-Line version is available outside the Japanese home market.

Only 209 units will be produced exclusively for the American market, mainly to celebrate the success of the regular but aging WRX STI, which is about to be replaced by an all-new generation based on the Subaru Global Platform.

Befitting of the lineage created by previous S-Line limited edition models, the WRX STI S209 is the most powerful and best handling Impreza-based production car in history. STI engineers have updated the turbocharged, 2.5-liter Boxer engine to deliver no less than 341 horsepower, with the suspension, Brembo braking system and chassis being upgraded to massively improve cornering speeds, traction and response.

The 209 cars are only available in two exterior colors - the traditional World Rally Blue Pearl and Chrystal White Pearl - while the 19-inch BBS alloy wheels are exclusive to the S209 as well, as are the bespoke Dunlop SP Sport Maxx GT600A tires.

The all-new Subaru WRX made its world premiere at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show being held at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Also,along with the standard six-speed manual transmission, Sport Lineartronic has newly been adopted to the transmission.

Equipped with a Symmetrical AWD (All-Wheel drive) system built around Subaru’s Boxer engine, the WRX is the symbol of Subaru AWD sport performance. Ever since the first model hit the streets back in 1992, the WRX has gained worldwide support from sports car enthusiasts as a distinctive sports sedan combining impressive sport performance with the practicality of a four-door sedan.

SUBARU WRX STI  2014 2018
2014 2018

In 2013 Subaru dropped the name Impreza from its list and used only the former versions: the WRX STI.
Fortunately, it didn’t drop the performance compact sedan.

The Subaru Impreza won six titles in the World Rally Championship between 1995 and 2003: three for the team and three for the drivers. The three letters, WRX meant World Rally eXperimental. But it was a successful experiment with 122 podiums in 193 races between 1995 and 2008 when the race-program was ended due to the world financial crisis.

The 2013 WRX STI was launched with a pedigree behind. The car was known both on the streets and on the tracks. It dropped the hatchback version and returned to the sedan version and that was a plus for those who were looking for a family sedan with good performance. The air-scoop on the hood was typical for the Impreza and it was kept. Narrower headlights flanked the Subaru hexagonal grille. It was a more powerful stare thanks to new standard LED low-beam headlights.

The cabin was roomier than the predecessor, due to a longer wheelbase. For the driver, a flat-bottom steering wheel with tilt and telescoping adjustments was installed. The standard Recaro bucket-seats added a racy touch to the vehicle. The STI Design electroluminescent gauge panel featured a new 3.5-in. central LCD screen that displayed various functions, including low-level warnings for oil and windshield washer fluid and the selected gear.

The drivetrain included the well-known symmetrical all-wheel-drive Subaru system, equipped with the new Multi-Mode Driver Controlled Center Differential. The front limited-slip differential and the rear Torsen LSD helped the car in corners. Under the hood, there was the 2.5-liter boxer engine aided by a turbocharger. The only transmission available was a 6-speed manual.
