Why Should You Buy a Subaru WRX / WRX STI?

icon/user/avatar/20 Created with Sketch. By Viktor Kalutsky


There is no doubt that any Subaru is a great and reliable car to drive, but is a Subaru WRX / WRX STI the right car for you? Here are some things to consider before buying this car.

Stafford, Eric. “2020 Subaru WRX STI Review, Pricing, and Specs.” Car and Driver, Car and Driver, 23 Oct. 2019,


        1. Powertrain 

  • The base Subaru WRX comes with a 2.0-liter turbocharged flat four making it 268 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. This comes in the convenient CVT transmission for more comfortable traffic driving or in a 6 speed manual for a more sportier feel. While this is plenty of power for most people, drivers will appreciate the WRX STI upgrade to a 2.5-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 310 horsepower and 290 pound-feet of torque. With this much power these cars are not the most fuel efficient on the market but you will enjoy every mile driven to the fullest. 


        2. All Weather Driving

  • While most sports cars tend to get put away during the winter months due to less than ideal road conditions, this is where the Subaru WRX shines the most. These cars come standard with AWD which make handling in the snow or rain especially easy. Even if choosing to hit the gas pedal a little harder, the Subaru WRX still feels extremely steady and the upgraded suspension of the WRX STI model allows you to rip around corners smoothly. 


        3. Interior / Exterior 

  • The Subaru WRX / WRX STI is a headturner. You can’t not notice these cars as they drive down the road. These cars feature a sleek and sporty look that is designed to catch the attention of spectators. However, this does not mean you have to sacrifice functionality. The Subaru WRX / WRX STI features a compact design that can seat 5 people very comfortably and a large trunk for any transporting needs. This along with the user friendly controls make this not only a great rally car, but also a wonderful car for families.   


        4. Safety 

  • Subaru is known for the safety and reliability of their rides. The WRX / WRX STI is no exception. There are numerous features that help protect the driver and their passengers, some of which are automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, and adaptive cruise control. The newer models also include LED Steering Responsive Headlamps and blind-spot monitoring to ease the strain of night or bad weather driving.


In conclusion, there are many great reasons to own a Subaru WRX / WRX STI. These are cars made with the driver in mind and provide many great benefits. If the above features seem like a car that you would like to drive, contact BCR Automotive so we can help you find this amazing car for the best price!
