Following months of rumors and speculations, Subaru has finally unveiled the 2015 WRX this week at the L.A. Auto Show. According to the Japanese marque, the vehicle’s headlights, rear doors, front fenders, hood, bumpers and taillights clusters are different than the ones on the Impreza, along with the 17-inch rims wrapped in Dunlop SP Sport Maxx RT tires. Inside it has fabric-covered sport seats, soft-touch materials and a flat-bottomed steering wheel. There’s also a new instrument cluster, automatic climate control and a 4.3-inch display. Subaru fitted the new WRX with GPS, heated front leather seats and a 440-watt Harman Kardon sound system.
Under the hood it has received a 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter boxer engine unleashing 268 bhp and 258 lb-ft of torque working together with either a 6-speed manual or a new Sport Lineartronic CVT which works with the firm’s new Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system featuring Variable Torque Distribution. Other than that, the vehicle has a sport-tuned suspension and benefits from a newly developed electronic power steering system.
