2018 Subaru WRX Review

When Subaru created the WRX, they had every type of driver in mind: the adventurous speedster, the tech fanatic, and the safety-conscious driver. However, is it right for you?

This 2018 Subaru WRX review from Winner Subaru will give drivers in Middletown, Odessa, and Dover an inside look at this versatile sports sedan. After learning all about it, you can visit our dealership to see it in person.

Subaru WRX Power & Handling

The 2018 WRX has two engine options with the power you need to take on any road. It comes standard with a 2.0L turbocharged SUBARU BOXER® 4-cylinder with 268 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. There's also the available 2.5L turbocharged SUBARU BOXER® 4-cylinder that produces 305 horsepower and 290 lb-ft of torque.

While this vehicle has a lot of power, it's still also pretty fuel-efficient, as it achieves up to an EPA-estimated 21 city/27 highway MPG.1

Rough roads and weather conditions are no match for the 2018 Subaru WRX. With the standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, power gets evenly distributed throughout all four wheels. This gives the sedan maximum traction to handle back roads, or icy or rainy streets.

Subaru WRX Interior

The Subaru WRX interior is certainly stylish looking, with its Recaro® performance-design front seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel with red stitching, and leather-wrapped shifter handle. However, the most noteworthy feature of the interior is how roomy it is.

The vehicle comfortably seats five with plenty of headroom and legroom for everyone inside. The front row has 39.8 inches of headroom and 43.4 inches of legroom, while the back row has 37.1 inches of headroom and 35.4 inches of legroom. With 96.6 cubic feet of total passenger room, the Subaru WRX has the largest passenger volume among all-wheel drive vehicles in this class.2

Cutting-Edge Technology & Safety Features

For advanced technology and safety features, the 2018 WRX has a comprehensive system called SUBARU STARLINK™, which breaks off into STARLINK™ Multimedia for enjoyment and STARLINK™ Safety and Security for peace of mind.

STARLINK™ Multimedia

This entertainment system connects music, news, navigation, and podcasts to your vehicle. You can see all your media options on the 6.2-inch touchscreen display, or the available 7-inch touchscreen. Furthermore, you can listen to music from Pandora®, Aha™, or SiriusXM® Satellite Radio, and everything will be heard in high quality through the 6-speaker sound system.

If you have a compatible smartphone, you can connect it to the 2018 WRX using Apple CarPlay™ or Android Auto™. This way, you can easily access your phone contacts, text messages, and apps for further connectivity.
