When you get behind the wheel of a 2018 Subaru WRX, it will be both difficult and easy to believe the compact car is the result of the Subaru brand’s participation in rally racing. For decades, the Subaru brand has been a part of rally racing, which consists of contests run mostly in dirt, mud, and gravel. Despite the rally racing legacy of the Subaru WRX, the vehicle is a practical daily driver that’s a ton of fun to drive.
The 2018 Subaru WRX has a roomy, comfortable cabin that features enough seating for five adult passengers. The sedan is available in five trims, including the Base, Premium, Limited, STI, and STI Limited. The first three trims are equipped with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 268 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. This engine is paired with a standard six-speed manual transmission and all-wheel drive.
The STI and STI Limited models are powered by a 2.5-liter machine. This engine generates 305 horsepower and 290 lb-ft of torque. The STI trims are equipped with Brembo brakes, limited slip-differentials in the front and back, and suspension tuning that’s more aggressive than it is on the other trims.
No matter which trim you decide to buy or lease from our Naperville, IL Subaru dealership, your 2018 Subaru WRX will be a well-equipped sedan. On the Base model, you’ll find performance tires, heated mirrors, a rearview camera, Bluetooth™ connectivity, a 6.2-inch touchscreen, smartphone app integration, and USB and auxiliary audio inputs.
As you’d expect, the higher trims have even more standard features. If you step up to the Premium trim, for instance, your sedan will also boast fog lights, a sunroof, heated front seats, and a de-icer for your car’s windshield wipers.
