2015 Subaru WRX

The 2015 WRX – Subaru’s original rally car, will get a lot of refreshments. The stiffer structure and suspension, a new turbo engine, an optional automatic, and a new sheetmetal should improve aerodynamics and performance on the 2015 WRX. Bad thing for this model is that vehicle comes as five-door hatchback. Subaru product planners wanted  2015 WRX to be similar to Impeza. Cost of sheetmetal and restyling made them not to proceed with it so far. The platform was introduced in 2012. Now it will get in markets, with still unknown price. Current WRX cost of $26,790 could be trailer. New 2015 Subaru WRX could probably little more of that.

2015 Subaru WRX Redesign

The 2015 Subaru WRX new structure brace the A-pillar and rear floor to bolster body’s torsional and bending stiffness. Front suspension, outer tubes on the struts and bushings, all will be stiffer and thicker for improved safety. Spring rates are raised by 39 percent and it should improve sense of control of the WRX 2015. Spring-rate change is also in the rear multilink suspension, by 62%. Vehicle’s overall weight will be raised by 60 pounds. Like other vehicles from Subaru, WRX also has electric power steering for increasing fuel economy.

2015 Subaru WRX Engine

The 2015 Subaru WRX base model engine option will be 2.0-liter FA-series turbo flat-four, taken from Forester 2.0 XT. It is using Subaru’s direct-injection system. Also, engine will have output of 268 horsepower at 5600 rpm and 258 lb-ft of torque. Power should be made through automatic transmission because of the previous sales. According to sources, 60 to 80 percent of sporty cars are sold with automatics. Competition is not making its vehicles with auto (Ford Focus ST, Honda Civic Si, Mazda speed 3), except VW GTI. WRX is possible with CVT in three modes, including Intelligent, Sport, and Sport sharp. In Sport, the CVT can be operated via the steering-wheel paddles as a six-ratio automatic. Sport shift becomes an eight-speed box that can be shifted via the paddles.
