  1. Subaru has been keeping their S-series of WRX STI vehicles in Japan since the first model (the S201) was launched in 2000. But today at the Detroit Auto Show, Subaru has decided to treat us by bringing over the S209 to the U.S. Under the hood, STI has overhauled the EJ25 2.5L turbocharged boxer-four engine with an HKS turbocharger, revised intake system, forged pistons and con rods, and less-restrictive exhaust. Output has increased 310 to 341 horsepower. Torque remains at 290 pound-feet. In a nod to the 2004 to 2007 STI, Subaru has fitted an intercooler water spray system controlled via s

  3. We're a few years out from the next-generation Subaru WRX and WRX STI. To help tide us over till then, Subaru has unveiled the refreshed 2018 WRX and WRX STI. Subaru has made some changes to the exterior, though it may be hard to notice at first since they look like the current model. There are new grilles and a set of larger air intakes. The Limited models of the WRX and WRX STI also get LED headlights that swivel when the steering wheel is turned. Inside, Subaru has both models a bit more bearable to live with thicker glass and added sound insulation to help reduce outside noise.

  5. The Subaru Impreza is beginning to hit dealers and that is causing everyone to wonder when the next WRX and STI are coming. Motoring spoke with a senior Subaru engineer who revealed that the next-generation WRX/STI will not arrive till 2020. “The WRX will have a facelift soon, not a full model cycle, because the new model just launched in 2015,” said the engineer. “The full model cycle will be about four or five years, and that’s when you’ll see a full model. We would love to have the WRX on the new platform, because the car would be a lot better … but the 2018 will be a faceli

  8. All-wheel drive in the sport compact/hot hatch marketplace seems to only be reserved for the upper echelon; the upcoming Ford Focus RS, Subaru WRX STI, Volkswagen Golf R, and the outgoing Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. Step down one rung and most sport compacts send power to the front wheels. Ask why most automakers don’t add AWD and you might get an answer of it would ruin the balance of the vehicle or it would be too expensive. But one automaker does have AWD in their sport compact and that would be Subaru. Ok, Subaru has AWD in most of their vehicles, so adding AWD to their WRX sedan isn’t a

  10. Earlier this month, we reported in the rumorpile that Subaru was possibly reconsidering bringing back the WRX hatchback. “We have received strong interest from the US, where the hatchback was 50 per cent (of previous-generation WRX sales), so we're now considering,” said Masuo Takatsu, Subaru's general manager for the WRX. “The main target for WRX is the US, Japan is number two, Australia number three. Basically, we target these three markets." However, the dream of the WRX hatchback has been brought to an end. Motor Trend learned from a source at Subaru that the American office was surprise

  12. The 2015 Subaru WRX got off to a bit of a rough start when the production model was shown at the L.A. Auto Show last year. First off, the exterior looked to be a fully-watered down version of the concept that was shown earlier in the year. Then came the news that the WRX would be available with a CVT transmission. The internet seemed to implode on the basis of this news, but is it all bad? Has Subaru messed up the WRX? In a word, no. Let's begin with the CVT since that is what I drove at the MAMA Spring Rally last month. The CVT in question is Subaru's Linetronic and the company made some wi

  14. The biggest complaint laid before the 2015 Subaru WRX aside from the styling is the lack of a hatchback. This is a bit odd since the last-generation WRX hatchback made up 50 percent of sales in the U.S. But a new report says Subaru is reconsidering this. Motoring.com.au talked with Masuo Takatsu, Subaru's general manager for the WRX. He said the company is thinking about bring back the hatchback. “We have received strong interest from the US, where the hatchback was 50 per cent (of previous-generation WRX sales), so we're now considering,” Takatsu said. “The main target for WRX is the US, Ja

  16. William Maley Staff Writer - CheersandGears.com November 20, 2013 A few months after Subaru showed off the WRX Concept at the New York Auto Show, the company revealed the 2015 WRX today at the LA Auto Show. The WRX does have a somewhat family resemblance to the current Impreza, but Subaru designers have done a few things to make the WRX stand on its own. There are new front and rear fenders, new rear doors, hood scoop, bumpers, and headlights that are either halogen or LED (dependent on the trim level). A set of blacked-out seventeen-inch alloy wheels, finish off the WRX's exterior. Insid

November 19th, 2013 Drew Dowdell Managing Editor - CheersandGears.com Along with dropping trou on the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado, the Edmunds video responsible for the most recent LA Auto Show picture leaks also totally pantses the Subaru WRX,shown here playing in the dirt. Update: Edmunds has since removed the video from Youtube. We saw some teaser pictures of the 2015 Subaru WRX about a week ago, so the overall look isn't much of a surprise, but it is nice to see it here finally in full view. The Subaru WRX has never been a real looker as far as sports cars go, but enthusiasts don't seem

It was one of the stars of the show thanks to its very dramatic styling.

The new WRX is expected to be a four-door only and leave it dirt roots of previous models. Subaru has said the new model will be more focused for road duty.

By William Maley Staff Writer - CheersandGears.com April 16, 2013 A few weeks after Subaru showed off the WRX Concept at the New York Auto Show, spy photographers caught the first images of a heavily camouflaged WRX making its way onto the Nürburgring. While the concept was very radical and dare I say sexy, the one in the spy shots looks to be toned down from the concept and appears to be derivative of the current model. Now it could be Subaru is still trying to figure out what the final design will look like. We'll be keeping a close eye on this. Source: Autoblog William Maley is a staf
