A Closer Look at the Subaru WRX

The Subaru WRX made its debut in Japan in 1992 and has since become a legendary sports car all around the world. The name WRX stands for World Rally Experimental, referring to the motorsport of rallying. Rallies can take place on or off-road and can be either short sprints or long endurance races. As such, a vehicle designed for rallying needs to be fast, versatile, and reliable under a wide range of conditions. Subaru was the perfect company to step up to this challenge, as an automaker well known for making vehicles like the Outback that handle well on paved roads and can tackle the great outdoors.

Over the years, the WRX has been through plenty of different versions but has always delivered a thrilling mix of power, traction, and style. One advantage of newer models is that they come with the latest infotainment and safety technology. Driver assistance technology like adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking, lane departure warning, and blind spot detection has been available on the WRX since the 2016 model year. A touchscreen display and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility have been standard features across all trim levels on the 2019 WRX.

2023 Subaru WRX Highlights

The 2023 WRX comes standard with a 2.4L turbocharged Subaru BOXER engine that delivers 271 hp and 258 lb-ft of maximum torque. Track-tuned suspension is also standard, so you don’t have to upgrade to a top-tier trim level in order to get a powerful sports car that handles like a dream. Automotive enthusiasts will appreciate that the 2023 model continues to come standard with a 6-speed manual transmission, giving you total control over your ride.

While there’s plenty to love about the WRX Base, opting for a higher trim level has plenty of advantages. The WRX Premium features keyless access with a push-button start and dual-zone automatic climate control for added comfort and convenience. Upgrade to the Limited for a 10-way power adjustable driver’s seat, Ultrasuede-trimmed upholstery, and a Harman Kardon premium audio system. The top-of-the-line WRX GT comes standard with performance design front seats with adjustable head restraints and red contrast stitching, a performance transmission with an 8-speed manual mode and power shifters, and drive mode select, which lets you switch between both preset modes and a customizable Individual Mode for optimal settings in a variety of situations.

We Offer an Array of Pre-owned Subaru WRX Models

The WRX has been available in a number of different versions and body styles over the years. If you’re looking at new options, you’ll definitely get the latest tech features, but you’ll be limited to the options available in a single model year. Opt for a used WRX, and the possibilities open up immensely. Not only can you look at hatchback, wagon, and STI models, but you also might be able to find special editions that were only available for a limited time.

On top of that, used models tend to be more affordable than new ones, which makes it easy to get a great deal on a quality car like the WRX. Not only do they generally have lower sticker prices, but they also don’t see as much value depreciation, which comes in handy when you’re ready to trade it in. Overall, purchasing a pre-owned Subaru WRX allows you access to the modern features you're looking for at a fraction of the price.

For many, the pros of buying new are balanced out by the cons of taking on the risk of getting a pre-owned car that may not be in the best condition; here at Ruge’s Subaru, you don’t have to worry about that. Every used model on our lot comes with a complimentary vehicle history report so you can see its maintenance records and previous owner history for yourself, and we have inspected all pre-owned models for safety and roadworthiness. We stand behind every vehicle on our lot, new or used, so that you can shop with confidence.
