Subaru is known for its amazing all-wheel-drive technology, and the 2016 WRX makes great use of its standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system. That means that the rally-bred WRX is just at home sliding through a dirt trail as it is carving corners on a paved race track or your favorite back road. It's also pretty handy when the weather goes sideways; its AWD can help improve traction in wet or slippery weather.
How does a standard turbocharged 2.0L flat-four "boxer" engine with 268 horsepower sound? A direct-injection twin-scroll turbo, plus that great AWD system, help the 2016 WRX hit 60 mph in 5.5 seconds. If you need more power, check out the performance-focused WRX STI version that ups the ante to 305 horsepower and has an even quicker blast to 60 in just 4.6 seconds.
A sports car usually comes with numerous compromises, a tiny (or non-existent) back seat, a small trunk, and limited storage. Thankfully, the 2016 WRX has both performance and practicality. The five-seat WRX comes in a handy four-door layout which means more room for both people and gear. It's got a 12 cubic-foot trunk, plus 60/40 split-folding rear seatbacks, and 35.4 inches of rear legroom, which makes it great for both daily driving and weekend adventure duty.
You might set a personal track record in your WRX on Saturday, but you can also set the cruise control and ride back home in comfort on Sunday. If you're looking for additional comfort and convenience upgrades, check out the WRX Premium, which adds great stuff like a power sunroof, heated front seats, windshield wiper de-icers, and heated outside mirrors. If you want more, the Limited model (available on the WRX and STI) adds leather upholstery, an eight-way power driver seat, and more.
Don't worry, you don't need to compromise on technology in your 2016 Subaru WRX. Standard tech includes Subaru's Starlink™ infotainment system which is controlled by a nicely sized 6.2-inch touchscreen. Also standard is both satellite and HD radio, a CD player, and a USB interface. Premium and Limited trims get an upgraded seven-inch screen, plus a premium nine-speaker Harman Kardon® audio system and navigation.
