2015 Subaru WRX
The 2015 Subaru WRX is no quicker than before, but beautifully balanced handling and spot-on steering are better than ever.The WRX is whizzy, turbocharged, and a lot more than just a tuned-up economy car. While it's fundamentally a practical, all-wheel-drive compact sedan, it's a true sports car at heart, and a fun way to get to 60 mph just as quickly as a V-8 Camaro or Mustang. Yet with the right tires it could be a champ for snowy commutes.It's a lovely 2.0-liter turbo four, outfitted with a twin-scroll turbocharger and intercooler as well as direct injection. Power output is set at 268 horsepower, while peak torque of 258 pound-feet is delivered from 2,000 rpm to 5,200 rpm. Distinct from the Forester's version of the same engine, the WRX engine has unique cam profiles and valve-spring rates.
The powerplant's coupled to either a manual or a continuously variable transmission, the first one ever in a WRX--and the choice of transmission nets the driver different versions of Subaru's hallmark all-wheel drive. With the six-speed manual gearbox--up a cog over the five-speed unit in the last WRX--the all-wheel-drive system has a viscous coupling at the center differential. It splits power 5050 front to rear, and can shuffle torque side to side as traction needs arise.
With the CVT-equipped WRX, Subaru's ladling on all its latest thinking in performance and economy. The CVT gets a set of eight pre-selected transmission ratios that give it the feel of a manual transmission, in Sport Sharp mode, or the usual CVT response when it's left in Intelligent mode, with an intermediate Sport mode offering six gear-like steps. This WRX also has an all-wheel-drive system with a rear bias set at 4555, and variable torque distribution side to side, with the ability to reroute torque based on cornering forces and steering-wheel inputs. The WRX also gets electric power steering and a sport-tuned suspension, all riding on 17-inch rims.
