The 2015 WRX, the latest in a line of high-performance sports sedan from Japanese carmaker Subaru, made its debut at the 2013 Los Angeles Motor Show last month.
Featuring Subaru’s rugged all-wheel drive system and a distinctive Boxer engine, the WRX has a long reputation of being a ‘Do it all’ vehicle, combining sports-car rivaling performance with four-door sedan practicality. Much of it can be seen in this new video which Subaru has just released.
At its heart is a new, high-performance 2.0-litre horizontally-opposed, turbocharged Boxer engine, which offers more performance over the outgoing 2.5-litre model. The new engine produces 270PS of power and 350Nm of torque. The engine can be had with either a 6-speed manual gearbox or a newly developed CVT with an 8-speed shifting mode as an option.
Subaru has revealed that the new WRX will go on sale in North America and Japan later in 2014. However, the company has not confirmed whether it will be sold in the UK yet.
