Subaru WRX

The Subaru WRX and WRX STI are rally-bred machines built for the driving enthusiast. You won’t find a better sports car value on the planet. The WRX/STI is a sports-and-performance-tuned model that comes in a sedan body style and features a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine in WRX. Both come standard with Subaru’s Symmetrical all-wheel-drive system making it a great all-weather sports car.
