5 Keys To The Incredible Performance Of The 2016 Subaru WRX

Red 2016 Subaru WRX Speeding Through Dirt

You don’t buy a Subaru WRX to take the kids to soccer practice. The WRX was born to perform. That’s why we decided to highlight 5 of the performance features on the new 2016 Subaru WRX.

The heart and soul of any performance vehicle is its engine. Under the hood of the WRX is a FA20 2.0-liter turbocharged SUBARU BOXER® engine capable of 268 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. It’ll also take you from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.5 seconds.

You wouldn’t build your house on a poor foundation. So why build your car on a weak, flexy chassis? The Subaru WRX chassis is fortified with high-tensile strength hot-stamped steel. This stiff chassis offers unmatched handling and gives the driver confidence to push the WRX to the limits.

The choice is yours on the WRX between a 6-speed manual transmission with carbon 1st and 2nd gear synchros or the available Sport Lineartronic™ Transmission with paddle shifters, 6 and 8-speed manual modes and three performance modes. The Sport Lineartronic™ Transmission is the best of both worlds because it merges an automatic transmission with the ability to manual control as well.

The WRX offers a track-tuned high-performance suspension. Compared to previous models the 2016 WRX suspension is much more responsive giving the driver improved control and handling even with the turbocharged engine.

With all that speed, you need brakes with extreme stopping power. 12.4-inch front and 11.3-inch rear discs are paired with a large bore brake master cylinder. You’ll have even more control with ABS and Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EDB).
