3/4 Front Glamour 2015 Subaru WRX
, Automotive Editor -

The Subaru WRX is a rally-bred sedan that that brings the true spirit of Subaru to the masses. With all-wheel-drive, a pair of turbocharged engine options and the ability to handle asphalt, gravel, dirt or mud with ease, the WRX has become an icon among enthusiasts.

What's New for 2015

For 2015, the WRX is completely redesigned. This overhaul ushers in a stiffer chassis, a revised base engine, new transmissions and new active torque vectoring to combat the understeer that has long plagued the WRX. Subaru chose to drop the hatchback model for the new generation.

Choosing Your Subaru WRX

The engine you choose has a significant impact on WRX performance. The base WRX and its trims come with a 268-horsepower four-cylinder; WRX STI and its trims feature a 305-horsepower engine. An STI comes only with a six-speed manual transmission.

Including the WRX and WRX STI, there are six trims to choose from:

WRX

The WRX kicks things off with a nice selection of standard features that should help young enthusiasts geta crack at this all-wheel-drive performance sedan. These features include a rearview camera, power windows, cloth seats with contrast stitching and a six-speaker, AM/FM/CD/MP3 audio system with SiriusXM. The base WRX starts at $26,295.

WRX Premium

The WRX Premium bases at $28,495 and it is also available with the continuously variable transmission (CVT) for $26,695. The Premium trim adds in the All-Weather Package, which includes heated front seats, heated mirrors and windshield wiper deicers for those who live in cooler climates; fog lights, a glass moonroof and a rear spoiler.

WRX Limited

For those looking for outright luxury from their WRX, the $29,995 Limited -- $31,195 with the CVT -- is the car of choice. It builds upon the premium package with a power driver's seat, leather seating, LED low-beam headlights and welcome lighting.

WRX STI

The WRX STI starts out at $4,500 more than the Limited trim, and is all about better performance. It kicks off with its 2.5-liter engine getting jacked up to 205 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 290 pound-feet of torque at 4,000 rpm. It also gains a set of 18-inch cast-alloy wheels, Brembo performance brakes and an STI-tuned sports suspension. In terms of niceties, the WRX STI is well-equipped with a six-speaker audio system with AM/FM/CD/SiriusXM/MP3 capabilities, Alcantara upholstery, flat-bottom steering wheel, LED headlights and dual climate control.

WRX STI Launch Edition

For an extra $2,900, the STI Launch Edition adds even more standard features that enhance performance and add a little more class, like 18-inch, forged alloy wheels; Alcantara upholstery with blue and black leather bolsters; keyless entry and push-button start; and an STI short-throw shifter.

WRX STI Limited

STI Limited adds $1,100 to the Launch Edition's base price, and brings the best of luxury and performance with leather seating, 18-inch BBS wheels, eight-way power driver's seat, a Harman/Kardon audio system with nine speakers and 440 watts of power, leather seating and welcome lighting.

CarsDirect Tip

It's no mystery that the WRX is all about its sportiness, and adding the CVT really curtails the fun. So, unless you simply cannot drive a car with six-speed manual gearbox, do all you can to avoid the CVT; you'll be much more satisfied.
