2018 Subaru WRX and WRX STI Performance Driving – Video
The hearts of the hot Subies remain the same. The WRX retains its direct-injected, turbocharged 2.0-liter flat-four that makes 268 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed manual transmission is standard; a CVT is optional. The manual has a new synchro design aimed to reduce friction and improve feel, and Subaru claims the clutch has a smoother takeup. The WRX STI keeps its turbocharged 2.5-liter flat-four that makes 305 horsepower and 290 lb-ft of torque.
