Subaru WRX Features

The powerful magnetism of the fourth generation WRX is undeniable. A potent sports sedan whose roots lie in twenty years of competition in the toughest of motorsports. Dynamic. Turbocharged. Making everyday driving far from every day.



That Legendary Silhouette

You can recognise the shape of both WRX and WRX STI out of the corner of your eye. You know it’s them as they’re disappearing around a bend. Oozing with attitude, both WRX and WRX STI sport a shark fin antenna and 18” alloy wheels. While their striking self-levelling LED low beam headlights stay focused on the road throughout the night.


Take on the Road in Style

The reconfigured cockpit of the Subaru WRX and WRX STI has never been more suited to the driver. The Multi-Function Display unit (MFD) offers fuel economy data, Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC), eco-gauge information and more, while the sleek dash boasts racing style dials with red highlights and white needles.


Luxury Comforts

This model might be powerful, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a little luxury along the way. Features such as dual zone climate control air-conditioning, smart key with push-start ignition, cruise control and 8-way power driver seats, elevate the experience to the next level of comfort when driving the Subaru WRX Premium and WRX STI Premium.



Tap, Tap, Go

Connect, entertain, navigate and command with the highly sophisticated infotainment system that puts you in central command at the touch of a screen.

Your seamless driving experience is complete, with a bigger, brighter LCD touchscreen. It has both voice and touchscreen functionality, while the full-colour display ensures a crisp and clear view both day and night, with bold and easy-to-understand graphics for easy use.


Voice Activation & Seamless Connectivity

Charge your phone in the USB port. Enjoy intuitive Bluetooth®1 connectivity for hands-free calls. Stream your music and podcasts wirelessly. Make voice recognition commands or push steering wheel controls as you keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road.

From dual zone climate control air-conditioning to driver information and satellite navigation on selected variants, WRX makes your drive even more of a breeze.


Rear View Reverse Camera

Steering backwards down a cluttered, narrow driveway? Subaru WRX eliminates the guesswork, with a sophisticated rear view reverse camera.

Like having eyes in the back of your head, you can view the camera’s vision on the display monitor in front of you. It’s smart yet simple technology that greatly reduces the risk of any bumps and scrapes when you reverse. 

Car of the Decade & World Rally Champion

Every Subaru WRX comes standard with something you won’t find in a spec sheet: history. Originally launched in Japan in 1992, WRX became popular all around the world, eventually finding its way to Australia in 1994. 

The effect was magnetic and immediate. The seductive combination of Subaru’s Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive together with its compact turbocharged Boxer engine in a distinctively muscular package excited many an Aussie driver.

It was a success in more ways than one. Subaru WRX STI’s World Rally Championship pedigree became the stuff of legend. Led initially by famed Scottish rally driver Colin McRae, Subaru was the first Japanese automobile company to win three consecutive manufacturer’s championships.

In Australia, WRX STI dominated the Australian Rally Championships from 1996 - 2005, with an astonishing ten consecutive driver’s championships and eight manufacturer’s championships.

After more than 10 years away, Subaru was back on the Australian rally scene in 2016. And we meant business. The Subaru do Motorsport team were hell-bent on extending our record-breaking legacy of championship wins.

Campaigning a turbocharged Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive WRX STI NR4 and aided by the invaluable experience of co-driver Bill Hayes and the Les Walkden Really team, Subaru do Motorsport team driver Molly Taylor became the first female winner of the Australian Rally Championship.

Subaru WRX’s appeal is universal. In 2000 it was crowned ‘Car of the Decade’ by the prestigious CAR Magazine UK, not bad given the distinguished local competition.

Now into its third decade, WRX’s popularity, not to mention the car itself, shows no sign of slowing down.



All Wheel Power

With the superior grip of the legendary Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system, Subaru WRX and WRX STI are ready for any road, beach or rugged mountain ahead. They grip the road with all four wheels, all the time, giving you double the traction capability, greater precision and even more cornering power.  


Legendary Boxer Engine

Less noise, more power. The impressive engine performance of Subaru WRX is at the core of its appeal. Sitting lower and flatter in the engine bay, the famous Subaru Boxer engine is designed to create less noise and vibration in the cabin, whilst the lower centre of gravity improves stability and traction on the road, meaning you can corner with even more confidence. 


Smart to Sporty

The turbocharged Subaru WRX and WRX STI are smart enough to adapt their driving styles to suit your day, thanks to Subaru Intelligent Drive (SI-Drive)1. Choose from Intelligent (I) mode for everyday driving, Sport (S) mode for enhanced acceleration and sporty performance, and Sport Sharp (S#) mode for a truly exhilarating drive.
