Moving on to the other end of the world, Subaru launched the 2015 Subaru WRX at the LA Motor Show. Subaru promises the new model to be better handling over the outgoing model, with more power on the tap. So, here it is, exactly the same as the one we showed earlier.
In the powertrain department, the WRX debuts with a whole new 2.0 liter direct-injection turbocharged boxer engine. This new 2.0L engine delivers 268hp over the outgoing model. Effectively replaces the old 2.5L block. Transmission wise, the 2015 WRX offers the driver with a 6 speed manual or a CVT gearbox. The century sprint is done in 5.4 seconds with the new 6 speed manual.
According to Subaru, the interior is now slightly more spacious thanks to the 25mm increase in wheelbase, while creature comforts like a Harman/Kardon audio system keeps the driver entertained.
