2015 Subaru WRX: LA Auto Show – Video

Subaru has been discreet about its new WRX heading into this year’s LA Auto Show. Well, the WRX has landed, and it has taken on interesting new looks compared to its previous generation. 

The 2015 Subaru WRX has a more refined exterior, losing some of its street-racing attitude in favor of a more conservative look. There are no wheel flares; the hood scoop has a more integrated look; and the overall design fits together nicely.

Under the hood, you’ll find a 2-liter turbocharged boxer 4-cylinder — similar to the engine in the Subaru BRZ, but turbocharged. Horsepower is rated at 268 with 258 lb-ft of torque, but the rally inspired STI model will bring it closer to 300 hp. Zero-to-60 miles per hour times for the standard WRX will clock between 5.4 seconds and 5.9 seconds, depending on the transmission. 

Concerning another development, the WRX will have a choice of two transmissions: a 6-speed manual, which was only previously available in the STI, and a continuously variable transmission (CVT) instead of a conventional automatic transmission. 

The 2015 Subaru WRX also benefits from electric power steering, up-rated brakes, a firmer suspension and, of course, the familiar Subaru all-wheel-drive setup. 

We’ll be seeing the new WRX at Subaru dealers next year, and prices are expected to come in north of $25,000.
