The 2014 Subaru WRX offers all-wheel-drive and more power than competing models from other manufacturers, as it comes outfitted with a 2.5L turbocharged I-4 engine that is capable of 265 hp and 244 lb-ft of maximum torque for fast, responsive acceleration. When paired with the five-speed manual transmission and exclusive Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, the new WRX provides confident handling regardless of road condition.
This all-wheel-drive system uses a coupling locking center differential that divides the power 50/50 between both front and rear tires during normal traction conditions. If any traction is lost due to wheel slippage, the differential transfers power to whichever wheels currently have the best traction. This helps correct the WRX’s intended path and grip on the road.
Standard interior amenities for the 2014 Subaru WRX include an AM/FM/CD 6-speaker audio system, Bluetooth handsfree connectivity for mobile devices including audio streaming capabilities, and USB-connected iPod control. The 2014 WRX Limited model adds a navigation system with a 6.1-inch touchscreen, voice-activated controls, and SMS text messaging transcription.
For performance enthusiasts, the 2014 Subaru WRX STI has a starting MSRP of $34,495 and is equipped with a turbocharged and intercooled boxer engine that puts out 305 hp and is mated to a six-speed manual transmission.
