This month has been a big one for the Subaru WRX. Besides starring in an electrifying chase scene in the film “Baby Driver,” the new 2018 version of the rally-bred legend is beginning to hit dealership lots, including our lot here at Gerald Subaru Naperville. The 2018 Subaru WRX was completely redesigned for the 2018 model year, featuring updates inside and out, retuned performance, leading-edge technology, and improved style. 

Though Subaru is normally an automaker known for its off-road wagons and SUVs, the Subaru WRX has always been an exception. The 2018 Subaru WRX is a four-door sedan primarily focused on performance and cutting-edge style. On the exterior, drivers near Downers Grove, IL will find standard 19-inch alloy wheels with a striking Y-shaped spoke design, Of course, the main design hallmark of the Subaru WRX is its striking spoiler, which returns for the 2018 model year. Inside the cabin, the 2018 Subaru WRX features new Recaro performance seats to enhance precision driving and ergonomic control. In terms of technology, the 2018 Subaru WRX features a new 5.9-inch multifunction display that shows important vehicle information, such as boost level, all-wheel-drive system function, and average fuel economy.

Under the hood, the 2018 Subaru WRX features a 268-horsepower, direct-injection turbocharged SUBARU BOXER engine. This engine features Active Torque Vectoring and is matched to a Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive system. The suspension has been retuned for 2018 for an improved ride and greater stability to enhance its legendary handling.  

Here at our Subaru dealership near Downers Grove IL, we are proud to have the new 2018 Subaru WRX. We invite drivers to stop by our dealership to get behind the wheel.
