2021 Subaru WRX at Reedman Toll Subaru of Exton

The WRX is Subaru's performance sedan that has built a massive fan-base thanks to its high-performance capability in all weather conditions inspired by Subaru's rally car heritage. In fact, WRX stands for World Rally experimental. While there are many options when you're shopping for a performance vehicle, all WRX models come standard with Subaru's legendary Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system. In contrast, two-wheel drive is more often seen in performance vehicles. Additionally, the WRX comes with sport-tuned steering and suspension, two potent turbocharged engine options, and much more! At Reedman-Toll Subaru of Exton, we want to keep you up to date with all of Subaru's latest updates, so continue reading to learn more about the return of a legend: the 2021 Subaru WRX!

Confident Grip for Precise Cornering

Track-Tuned Suspension

The high-performance track-tuned suspension on the WRX features aggressive spring and damper rates, large front and rear anti-roll bars, and wide summer tires for tremendous grip and control. The double-wishbone rear suspension with pillow ball bushings enables flat cornering while the rigid unibody with reinforced suspension mounting points creates the ideal platform for the best-handling WRX ever.

Quick-Ratio Steering and Aluminum Front Lower Control Arms

Electric power steering with a quick 14.4:1 ratio creates a sharp turn-in and excellent on-center feel. Aluminum front lower control arms reduce unsprung weight and pivot on pillow ball bushings for almost-instantaneous response.

High-Performance Thrills

Direct-Injection Turbocharged SUBARU BOXER® Engine

Drawn from over 40 years of intelligent performance, the unique SUBARU BOXER® engine has pistons that move side to side, canceling out each other's vibrations so it can run smoother and more efficiently. This horizontal layout also offers better balance while delivering a maximum transfer of power. The 268-horsepower direct-injection turbocharged engine features a twin-scroll turbocharger for near-instant boost response and maximum power across a wide power band, delivering 258 pound-feet of torque from 2,000 to 5,200 RPM.

Sport Lineartronic® Transmission

The WRX is available with a Sport Lineartronic transmission with SI-DRIVE and paddle shifters. It perfectly blends the convenience of an advanced automatic transmission with the ability to manually control shifts in 6- or 8-speed manual modes for enhanced driver involvement.

Convenient and Connected Technology

SUBARU STARLINK® Multimedia

A 7-inch touchscreen is available, as well as a built-in, voice-activated navigation system powered by TomTom®.

Harman Kardon® Premium Audio

Your soundtrack should match your vehicle's performance. That's why the WRX features a Harman Kardon premium audio system that captures detail-rich acoustics through enhanced sound control and superior high sound output. At the heart of the system lies a high-performance 9-channel, class-D amplifier pumping out 440 equivalent watts of power. The amplifier works to efficiently distribute clean audio signals to the vehicle's 9-speaker sound system ¬- including a subwoofer. Harman's Clari-Fi™ Technology restores and corrects audio fidelity, resulting in musical reproduction that sounds clearer, crisper, and more dynamic.

What's under the hood of the 2021 Subaru WRX?

Subaru engines, known as Boxer engines, are unique. Instead of all four cylinders being verticle in a straight line, they horizontally oppose each other, like boxers in a ring. Advantages of a flat-four engine are a lower center of gravity, shorter engine length, even airflow distribution, and reduced engine vibration. The Subaru WRX, WRX Premium, and WRX Limited all come with a 2.0L turbocharged flat-four Boxer engine. The two STI trims house a 2.5L turbocharged flat-four. The 2.0L WRX engine produces 268 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque while getting 24 MPG. The WRX engine is linked to a 6-speed manual transmission while a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) is available. The 2.5L STI engine rips out 310 horsepower, 290 lb-ft of torque, and provides a combined average of 19 MPG. The STI engine comes paired exclusively with a 6-speed manual transmission. All WRX and WRX STI trim levels come with Subaru's Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system.
