The 2016 WRX comes in five different model trims. The base model has symmetrical all-wheel drive and gets 29 miles per gallon on the highway. The WRX Premium trim gets a power moonroof and the WRX Limited bumps you up to LED headlights and leather-trimmed seats. The 2016 WRX STI has a larger turbo-charged engine while the WRX STI Limited gets all of the above, plus BBS alloy wheels.Performance
There are two different engine configurations, both of which are responsive and powerful. The 2.0 Liter, 4 cylinder BOXER is turbo-charged, inter-cooled and takes off like a rocket. That’s because it gets 268 horsepower and 258 lb. ft. of torque. It comes standard on all WRX models except for the STI and STI Limited. Both of those model trims get the upgraded 2.5 Liter turbo-charged BOXER. It can pump out 305 horsepower and 290 lb. ft. of torque. All that power is well-managed through the Intelligent Drive system. SI-DRIVE automatically adjusts the throttle and cycles through three different performance modes to give you total control over the driving experience. With a six speed manual transmission, the WRX STI and STI Limited are a driver’s dream.
The WRX challenges you to push your limits, but it’s also built to keep you safe. The 2016 Subaru WRX is a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). It’s got standard brake assist, traction control and active torque vectoring to properly spread all that power across the car’s four wheels. Front, side, knee and side curtain airbags are also standard on all trims. It’s been reinforced from the frame up, with a collapsible steering column and high-tensile steel that redirects force around the cabin, not through it.
This is a vehicle that’s ready for excitement. The WRX has power under the hood, style and subtle refinements at every corner and the safety features to give you confidence in nearly any condition. You just have to see it to believe it. So come on over to your local Subaru dealer and test drive the all new 2016 WRX today.
