The Subaru WRX, announced in the autumn of 2013, is a mid-class saloon that became independent from the Impreza series. The WRX was a grade model that was traditionally given to high performance versions of the Impreza, but the name has now become a new car model. The new model is, of course, a high performance sports sedan that follows in the footsteps of the Impreza WRX.
Its platform is basically the same as the Subaru Levorg, but due to the differences between an estate and a saloon and the expected types of driving conditions, the WRX body is significantly reinforced. The line-up includes a sporty STI model and a grand touring type S4. Both models are 4WD and the power unit is the iconic flat 4 turbo. However, between the STI and the S4, the centre differential and even the power steering mechanism is different. Although they are both equipped with 2 litre flat 4 engines, the engine itself is different. Subaru went out of their way to clarify the differences between the two cars.
The high performance STI is equipped with the EJ20 engine that has been put through some thorough development, producing 303 BHP and 43.0 kgfm. The transmission is a reinforced 6-speed MT and the driver controlled centre differential combines an electronically controlled LSD and a mechanical LSD. A Helical LSD is equipped for the front wheels, while the rear utilises a Torsen LSD. The power steering is a hydraulic type that places an emphasis on steering feel. The suspension is obviously developed individually for the car. In the end, making the WRX an independent model of its own gave the developers of the car the freedom to really pursue overall performance.
This car can be purchased in the Subaru section of Brand Central for 41,148 Credits.
