About the 2015 Subaru WRX

The Subaru WRX 2015 in one word? Agile. This is the Subaru enthusiasts have been waiting for. The standard was set high with the original Subaru WRX, but subsequent models have been leaving drivers wanting more. As soon as you get this car out on the road, you’ll understand the difference. Subaru’s 2015 WRX is at the top of its game. No longer carrying the title “Impreza” like former WRX models, the basic idea behind this car is the same. Subaru, staying true to the Impreza’s roots, kept the best of the best features while managing to create something that is truly unique. The 2015 WRX stands out for several reasons, one of which is the new engine. Say goodbye to the EJ-series that powered former models. And the five-door body option? Also gone. But if you fancy leather seats and an automatic transition, well this Subaru has that. Why all of these changes? 2015’s new WRX model is focused on one main thing: improved handling. The body’s shell has been reinforced in order to create a stiffer chassis - one that can better handle bumps and turns in the road thanks to a more responsive suspension. The resulting suspension allows for an increased spring rate, one that is actually 39 percent stiffer in the front and 62 percent stiffer in the back than older models. What does all of this mean? In case you haven’t jumped to the conclusion yet, the answer is that you are looking at the best handling WRX Subaru has ever made. 2015 will be a year to remember for the company and its enthusiasts. Former WRX models had a less than desirable body and driveline, echoing disappointment throughout the Subaru worlds for the past several years. Let the echo stop. The 2015 WRX has a body that is so flat it is enviable to even the most svelte athletes in the world. The car’s body remains flat on corners and the turning experience is bright, eyes wide open. One of the things Subaru is most proud of about this model is the modified grip, showcasing an impressive skid pad orbit at 0.93g, a nearly identical result to the Evo. With the intense focus on precision, the 2015 WRX had to make a few sacrifices in other areas. Most noticeably, in everyday driving you will find that the ride is a bit stiff, bordering complicated. While it performs miraculously on demanding roads, the humdrum of city streets can leave it feeling somewhat like a fish out of water. Other distinguishing features to be noted on this 2015 model is the brake pedal (firmer), the slightly bigger master cylinder behind it (15/16 of an inch bigger than 2015), and new supporting brake disks (thicker). That new engine we talked about? It’s a direct-injected 2.0-liter turbocharged engine. Drivers looking for higher revs will be pleased with its performance, outdoing competitors, like the Honeywell turbo engine. While the peak power of the engine may not grab your attention, the 258 pound-feet of torque coming from 2,000-5,200 rpm is an improvement you will be talking about. So while the overall weight of the car has increased a bit (59 pounds to be exact), it doesn’t impact enjoying the broader torque curve. Everyday drivers will appreciate the torque in this model, different from others because it features six forward gears, not the five of former models. The manual gearbox, brought over from the six-speed models of Foresters, is adapted to this WRX, featuring a cable-shift, synchros that are carbon-lined, and a shifter that requires shorter throws. Not a fan of grooves and friction? Neither was Subaru, apparently. Unlike some Subaru models, the 2015 WRX is available as an automatic. Wanting to appeal to a broader audience, Subaru uses a CVT that features two modes, paddle shifting, progressive aggression, and a well-engineered calibration that allows for stepped ratios to be engaged if and when the throttle moves beyond a preset level. Long story short: Subaru has figured out how to make a CVT that really does its job. Ready for a surprise? Test drivers actually experienced quicker point to point travel with the CVT version than the manual. Part of the explanation for this phenomenon is that the CVT’s torque ins’t interrupted during gear changes, while in the manual there’s a slight delay between a change before it opens up. Subaru stands by a faster manual car, clocking the CVT as .5 seconds slower during initial tests. Either way, the 2015 Subaru WRX is one you’ll want to get your hands on. We fully support your obsession.
