Watch 2018 Subaru WRX Vs. Banana Peels; Who Wins? [Video]
Subaru Canada says it’s the atypical 0-100 km/h test for the atypical sports car. It’s a crazy test that Subaru Canada came up with. Subaru likes to takes the WRX and WRX STI performance cars and do crazy stuff like take it down a bobsled run. Now, they took hundreds of banana peels, spread them out over a 100km track and sprayed it down with water to make sure it was extra slick.
The 2018 Subaru WRX with its rally-bred Symmetrical all-wheel-drive goes from 0-100 km/h in 6:10 through the gooey mess. If that wasn’t enough fun, the crew also took the new WRX through airport runway foam (6:03 sec), green, red and blue powder (7:15), half sand/half snow (8:01), road from hell (6:02), and wet asphalt (6:01).
What’s the point of the crazy tests?
Subaru is all about showing off the WRX’s Symmetrical all-wheel-drive system and this is one more way of showcasing the Sport sedan’s prowess in any and all road conditions. These surface tests were conducted in Squamish, B.C. on June 16-17, 2017. Subaru says time posted for each surface was the fastest of multiple runs.
We know the new 2018 Subaru WRX will handle just about any road surface you can throw at it, what we’re trying figure out is, who ate all those hundreds of bananas?
