Kelley Blue Book® Reviews the High-Performance 2017 Subaru WRX

Inspired by rally cars, the 2017 Subaru WRX is an impressive performance sports sedan priced within reach of the working class says Kelley Blue Book® (KBB) in a recent review. Rally cars have become known over the years for competing in punishing, high-speed endurance-style auto racing, on routes that often veer off road as well on along highways, country roads and city streets.

640 × 480?

The WRX features a 268 horsepower turbocharged flat-4 "boxer" engine along with a six-speed manual and all-wheel drive, all standard. KBB notes the six-speed stick's precise action and positive engagement make the "intricate ballet between man and machine infinitely more enjoyable than just tapping paddles." That being said, KBB also acknowledges the available continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) makes this fun ride available to everyone, and the all-wheel drive inspires year-round driving confidence.

The basic 2017 Subaru WRX sedan comes standard with automatic climate control, a rearview camera and a sleek audio system using Subaru's Starlink infotaintment screen, which includes Bluetooth, Pandora, iHeart Radio and USB and auxiliary inputs and Subaru's active torque-vectoring system that uses the brakes to control understeer. The Subaru WRX STI gets dual-zone climate control, heated front seats, 18-inch wheels, LED headlights and suede-like Alcantara upholstery. Safety features include seven airbags, a suite of electronic stability aids and Subaru's rigid body structure.

WRX Premium models get an inverted-strut suspension similar to the higher-performance STI model, plus fog lights, an all-weather package that adds heated front seats, and bigger wheels and tires. WRX and WRX STI Limited models get a navigation system (optional on WRX Limited models), 8-way-power driver's seat, and leather upholstery. Stand-alone options include Subaru's rear-vision system, which features cross-traffic alert and blind-spot detection.
