What's New in the 2014 Subaru Impreza WRX?

Aha infotainment smartphone integration is made standard on models with the optional navigation radio. 

Which Impreza WRX is the Best?

The base Impreza WRX model is the best deal. The STI may offer the best performance, but its $35,000-plus price puts it into used BMW and Porsche territory. The base WRX offers plenty of power, doesn't have a rigidity-weakening sunroof cutting into its roof and comes nicely equipped with the features most drivers want. With a price starting at about $27,000, you can take the extra couple of grand you'd spend for leather seats and a power sunroof (Limited trim) and install a really nice aftermarket audio system.

Subaru Impreza WRX Safety

Is the 2014 Subaru Impreza WRX a Safe Car?

All WRX and WRX STI models come with front-seat side-impact airbags, front and rear side-curtain airbags, electronic traction and stability control and Incline Start Assist, which keeps the vehicle from rolling backward when starting off on an incline of more than five degrees. The STI is equipped with Brembo performance brakes for better stopping power.

The Impreza on which the WRX is based excels in both independent and government crash tests. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gives the WRX four out of five stars in both the front- and side-impact crash test, and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety chose it as a Top Safety Pick.

2014 Subaru Impreza WRX vs the competition

Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution -- The Mitsubishi is the top-end performance rival of the WRX STI. The Evolution's ride is a bit harsher, and it only comes in sedan form, but its interior is better equipped, with such options as Recaro seats and a 710-watt Rockford Fosgate audio system.

Volkswagen GTI -- The GTI doesn't offer all-wheel drive, and its turbo engine isn't as powerful as the WRX's, but the GTI's ride is far more civilized -- as is its Audi-like interior -- and it's still a blast to drive.

Audi A3 -- For about the same money as the STI, you can get into a 200-hp turbocharged A3 with quattro all-wheel drive, a premium name and an exterior that doesn't scream "boy racer."
