2016 Subaru WRX, 2016 Subaru WRX STI review, price, interior


It has been some time since the Subaru 2016 STI and 2016 WRX STI have been up for sale. The cars have sold quite an amount but Subaru has been shelling out upgrades for the cars since its release and the main focus of the upgrades have been on the infotainment section and security features. Every Subaru comes now with an installed Starlink Infotainment section that comes with a 6.2 inch screen, Bluetooth and a camera. Subaru’s EyeSight security features are also found in the 2016 Subaru STI. The 2015 WRX and WRX STI share bits and pieces of a lot of Subaru’s models such as the Subaru Forester, but it also comes with a turbo charged engine and an advanced all-wheel drive, giving it an edge over other economy cars.

2016 Subaru WRX Review

It is very true that the 2016 Subaru WRX takes a lot from other Subaru cars. For example, the Sedan shape of the 2016 WRX is a memory of the Impreza’s shape, the heart of the car comes from the Forester. Looking at the air-intake, you can probably make a good guess of what the car is- Big and square. But the 2016 WRX is its own car, away from the Impreza, with its distinguishing LED low-beam lights, deep and set hood scope, fenders and bumpers and 17-inch wheels.


The 2.0 liter turbo four is outfitted with 2 turbo charger with an intercooler. Capable of generating 268 horsepower, the peak torque reaches 258 pound-feet which is delivered from 2,000 rpm to 5,200 rpm.

2016 Subaru WRX Interior

The 2016 WRX outdoes the Impreza in cabin space because of the wheelbase. The upholstery on the sports seats are more specified and make for a better, firm and gripped seating. The back seat has about 2 inches of more space than the last WRX and stills more space in the trunk. On the front we see a 6.2 inch LCD as an interface to the infotainment systems. The dashboard is functional and not as flashy as on the Impreza, which many think is wholly better.
