Here's looking at you

High performance demands top-class safety. The EyeSight® Driver Assist system - as standard on Subaru WRX CVT models - is like your second pair of eyes. It spots potentially dangerous situations up ahead, and alerts you to take action. In the right situation, it even automatically applies the brakes if need be. With EyeSight® Driver Assist technology, your WRX CVT is always on alert.

Technology

Eyes in the back of your head

Vision Assist is your co-pilot on the road. Available on the WRX Premium, STI Premium and STI spec.R, its top-six features are always working to keep you safe and in control. If a vehicle is in your blind spot, a light symbol in your side mirror lights up – on either side of the car – to let you know.

Superior Safety

You don’t get a 5 star ANCAP¹ safety rating for nothing. Subaru WRX and WRX STI are loaded with the very latest protective, preventative and predictive safety features.

Safety

5-star ANCAP rating

Thanks to a winning combination of collision protection technology, Subaru WRX and WRX STI have achieved the maximum 5 star ANCAP¹ safety rating. This is a result of a safety innovation program that includes seven SRS² airbags – dual front, dual front side, curtain-style and drivers-knee – and a whiplash reducing design, which provides extreme support for passengers’ head, neck and torso.

Safety

Let all the wheels do all the work

With the superior grip of the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system, Subaru WRX and WRX STI are ready for any road or rugged mountain ahead. They grip the road with all four wheels, all of the time, giving you double the traction capacity of a two-wheel drive car, greater precision and even more cornering power. Because four wheels grip better than two.

Safety 2

Reverse parking made easy

Steering backwards? Subaru WRX and WRX STI eliminate 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. 

Safety 2

Driver assistance at the ready

Sudden stopping, surprise roadworks, hairpin turns. Subaru WRX and WRX STI are ready for extreme urban conditions with the electronic driver assist system, Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC). Featuring a range of stability and braking technologies, the VDC system steps in to help maintain your safety in extreme situations.

Safety 2

Vision Assist

Now your wing mirrors will alert you when there’s something in your blind spot. Your car will guide you into a parking spot. We made all of this happen – and more – with Subaru’s Vision Assist technology. If you’re reversing and a vehicle is approaching from the side, you will receive an audible and visual warning.

Safety 2

A smarter, safer engine

The famous Subaru Boxer engine is not only a powerful performer; it also reduces the risk of injury in a severe frontal collision. This is because it’s designed to sit lower and flatter in the engine bay than traditional engines, so it will slide below the cabin – not through it – in a severe frontal collision.

Cargo space to boot

With 460 litres of cargo space, there’s enough room for a sporting safari, hardware haul or a weekend escape. The 60/40 split folding rear seats allow room for your bike. Or you could put it on the roof using Genuine Subaru Accessories and fill the boot with camping gear. Either way, you’ve got enough space to do it all.

Luxury comforts

Raw power doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a little luxury along the way. For the next level of comfort, Subaru WRX Premium, WRX STI Premium and WRX STI spec.R offer dual zone climate control air-conditioning, smart key with push-start ignition, cruise control and 8-way power driver seats.

Design 2

Low is the new high

The best everyday sports cars have a low centre of gravity. And because of the horizontal layout of the Boxer engine, both Subaru WRX and WRX STI get even lower still. Their configuration adds sticky grip for enhanced handling and performance.
