The much-anticipated 2015 Subaru WRX made its grand debut at November’s Los Angeles Auto Show. With more power and an emphasis on improved handling, this performance model should be one of the most anticipated vehicles to hit the dealership next year.

The new WRX is powered by a new 268-horsepower, 2.0liter direct-injection turbo BOXER engine. The WRX debuts the model’s first six-speed manual transmission and a new optional performance automatic transmission known as the Sport Lineartonic that features two manual modes.

As far as handling goes, the new WRX features the debut of the new torque-vectoring system that supplements the standard Symmetrical All Wheel Drive System found on all Subaru models except for the Subaru BRZ. Subaru says torque vectoring allows for improved corning speeds and handling. You’ll also get new stiffer chasis, larger brakes and performance tuned suspension that ensures the driver will still be the focal point of the car.

Fuel Economy has also improved with the 2013 WRX.

More than just a powerful engine, the WR-X is a pretty face.

 

Technology is a plus as well. The WRX features a Harman/Kardon premium audio system along with a 3.5-in LCD central screen.  Or choose a 4.3 in LCD screen with a rear camera display, boost gauge display, audio, Bluetooth and climate control settings, and even a VCD screen that show traction control operation.

Visually, the new WRX takes it rally spirit and combines it with the sophistication of the modern sports car. Up front, the WRX features a new bold front design. You’ll love the new bold front design. The 2015 Subaru WRX will feature the new hexagonal grille, narrow  headlights and a functioning hood scoop that upplies the intercooler with fresh air, is now set more deeply into the hood to provide better forward visibility. 

Other new performance features include foglights, LED low-beam headlights, and side sill spoilers that are both aesthetically pleasing and help protect the doors from rock chips. New standard 17-inch wheels feature a more aerodynamic design. At the rear, LED taillights, a diffuser, LED center high-mount stop lamp (CHMSL) and an available lip spoiler leave a distinctive signature.

Release date is targeting for mid-year to early Fall, but no one has taken the wheel yet.
