The 2015 Subaru WRX STI Launch Edition include new styling based on the Impreza latest-generation, the new engine for the WRX, the body structure stiffer with a retuned suspension, and slightly roomier interior with high-quality materials in the interior. The turbocharged, all-wheel-drive 2015 Subaru WRX STI Launch Edition has always been a cult favorite drivers are drawn to its performance and affordable prices. Now, in 2015, who also have a reason to smile as the WRX fully arrives and, yes, still offers a big bang for the buck. But Subaru and hope this 2015 new WRX will gain even wider audience, thanks to the slightly roomier cabin, financial performance and improved the efficiency of the fuel.
As before, the 2015 Subaru WRX STI Launch Edition is based on the Impreza sedan, although Subaru has dropped the “Impreza” WRX’s name to signify a higher-performance lines. Compared to its relative low, the 2015 WRX chassis features stiffer, retuned suspension and power increase. As a result, its performance skills are far beyond those of the standard Impreza duty.
However, In addition to performance, the WRX comes a little short a couple of areas. New car grows 1 inch in length, and when he opened the passenger’s body a little space, but the interior design and materials quality 2015 WRX, although change for the better, is still something special. Forward visibility, but the cabin is still too porous wind and road noise, and the suspension is undeniably stiff-riding, especially in the STI. Finally, the optional touchscreen navigation system Subaru’s relative just enough to unnecessary competition and binding up the basic audio functions within its screens and menus.
Despite its shortcomings, the WRX is almost unsurpassed. Working current true Its only rival is the aging Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. However, the 2015 Volkswagen Golf R will change that with a 292 hp, standard all-wheel drive and hatchback versatility that the WRX is no longer offers. More affordable alternatives include the 2015 Ford Focus ST 2015 Volkswagen GTI. Both offer a gracious interiors with touchscreens for ease of use, but they’re also slower than the Subaru, and front-wheel-drive layout will make a bit of hard-core drivers. Finally, your choice will probably depend on what you want your high-performance sedan. And the 2015 Subaru WRX and WRX STI, or errors, continue to offer the level of driver engagement that is rare at this price point.
2015 Subaru WRX STI Launch Edition Engine
The accumulation of power the 2015 WRX relies on a new, 2.0-liter turbocharged-cylinder engine. It’s smaller than 2.5-liter 2015 Subaru WRX STI Launch Edition engine’s previous-generation, but high-quality horses up a bit – now 268 – and, more importantly, makes it more usable power Midrange and returns better fuel economy. That power goes to all four wheels, naturally, but in this case it’s through a revised torque-vectoring AWD system to improve vehicle traction control out of turn. You also get a choice of two new transmissions: a six-speed manual or the movement of each variable (CVT) that has paddles steering-wheel-mounted for the desire strikes manual-like shifting when. With or transmission, you’re looking at the dash 0-60 mph in 6 seconds, which is good for this class car.
The winged wonder, the high-performance WRX STI, back as well, but operating a large 2.5-liter-cylinder rated at 305 hp. This could be seen as disappointing given that the STI has successfully had the same power output for more than a decade. But Subaru says it’s enough and wanted to focus more on the performance of the STI car even better handling. To accomplish that goal, there are even stiffer suspension tuning, steering quicker and more communicative (it’s still a hydraulic-assist, unlike the regular WRX new electric-assist power steering system), and an adjustable difference that can be used by the driver properly fit the car traction characteristics. Impressive results, as the STI heroically attacked through the turns and feels sharper and better balanced than any previous WRX sold.
