2015 Subaru WRX Sedan - WR TV POV Test Drive
We quickly became fans of the new WRX once we got a chance to review the
car late last year:
only regret from the time we spent with the ‘Rex was that we didn’t get
a chance to capture the driving experience on the video. This week, we’re
finally able to remedy that issue with this Limited trim example, which is
coated in Crystal White Pearl paint.
In terms of motivation, the new WRX gets a new direct-injected 2.0-liter
motor based off the unit used in the BRZ. However, unlike the BRZ, this
mill gets a twin-scroll turbocharger and
Intercooler, which results in
268 horsepower at
5,600 rpm and 258 lb.-ft. peak torque at 2,000-5,200 rpm. While a CVT is
now optional on the WRX, our tester today is equipped with the fan-favorite
six-speed manual gearbox.
Inside, a 4.3-inch LCD screen atop the center stack provides various
information including performance data, audio and Bluetooth info, and also
serves as a backup camera, while a new, flat-bottomed telescoping steering
wheel offers integrated audio and cruise controls. The range-topping
Limited model also includes leather-trimmed upholstery, an 8-way power
driver’s seat, and automatic low-beam LED headlights.
