It starts with the interior.

Interior

While the Subaru WRX might not have all of the luxury trim of some of its more expensive rivals, its cabin is quite nice. Focused on giving drivers the feature of a sporty, high-performance vehicle, the WRX has an interior that is more substance than style. The driver's seat holds them securely without sacrificing comfort, and the gauge cluster is laid out smartly and elegantly. It features plenty of visibility in all directions, and for a compact car, it has a large amount of headroom. The interior's layout is simple and straightforward, with comfortable, roomy seating both in the front and back rows. The WRX now comes with a standard 6.2-inch screen on its infotainment system, and leather seats, a sunroof, and more are included as part of higher trim packages. The best way for drivers to determine which interior features fit them best is to call a quality Topeka Subaru dealer and set up a WRX test drive in Topeka Kansas.

Exterior

The exterior of the 2017 WRX strikes a balance between aggressive and understated. Based on the Subaru Impreza sedan, the WRX's body has features like angled headlights, a wide hood scoop, and a large optional spoiler that all immediately convey that this is a high-performance vehicle. The body is still a sedan at heart, however, which works with the overall design to give the WRX the feel of a tuner car. Its look is more subtle than in years past, but it still has the bold lines and striking accents that set it apart from the crowd. Optional exterior features include not only the spoiler but also gorgeous 18-inch BBS wheels on the high-end STI model. The STI look great and is even faster than the base WRX; interested drivers should check with a quality Topeka Subaru dealer to see what Subaru WRX specials are available for them. Even better, call to test drive the 2017 Subaru WRX today.

Powertrain

The strong and resilient powertrain of the 2017 WRX is one of its highlights. The standard engine is a turbocharged 2.0-liter powerplant that sounds great and puts out a sturdy 268 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. This engine is matched to Subaru's great all-wheel drive system and a smooth-shifting manual transmission. This rockets the WRX from 0-to-60-mph is just 5.4 seconds, extremely quick for a vehicle in this price range. The top-end WRX STI switches out the 2.0-liter engine for a more powerful 2.5-liter. This increases the WRX's power to 305 horsepower and 290 pound-feet of torque and lowers the 0-60 mph to 4.7 seconds. A CVT transmission with paddle shifters is available as an option and shifts great. The WRX comes in four trim levels: in addition to the base and the high-end STI, a Premium and Limited trim package are available. The Premium package has 18-inch wheels and a sunroof, and the Limited adds leather-trimmed upholstery, keyless entry, and more. Check with your local Topeka dealer and see what Subaru WRX specials are available.

Safety

The WRX received IIHS Top Safety Pick award, along with top ratings across the board. The WRX features a driver knee airbag to increase safety further, and a rearview camera increases visibility. Great tech features like blind spot monitoring, lane departure warnings and rear cross-traffic alerts are available as options to increase safety further. Every Subaru also comes with Subaru's great all-wheel drive system, maximizing traction even over loose or uneven ground. Finally, Subaru's EyeSight package is available on the Subaru WRX Limited. This adds automated pre-collision braking, intervention systems, and more to the Limited, making it the safest WRX yet.
