Performance and Handling

As is standard on all Subaru models, the WRX is equipped with Subaru's famous symmetrical all-wheel drive. The standard turbocharged engine produces an astonishing amount of power. A 6-speed manual transmission is standard, but higher trims feature a CVT. The Subaru WRX is undoubtedly designed for performance. Based on the Subaru Impreza, the WRX builds on the looks, performance, and refinement of the Impreza.

The most significant impression one gets inside the WRX is the subtle hum of the engine. The Subaru WRX is designed to allow a fraction of engine noise into the cabin. This feature enables Winter Haven drivers to enjoy the sound of the engine as it revs and shifts. Driving the Subaru WRX is an experience of a lifetime.

The Subaru WRX is designed with rally-inspired technology and features. It comes powered by a 2.0L turbocharged boxer 4-cylinder engine that produces 268 horsepower and 258 pound to feet of torque. The standard transmission is a six-speed manual that delivers power to all four wheels. A continuously variable transmission is available with paddle shifters for more economical and enthusiastic drivers.

The boxer engine features horizontally opposed pistons and cylinders, which lower the overall center of gravity. This engine design, combined with the symmetrical all-wheel drive, give the Subaru WRX unprecedented stability. The WRX sticks to the road like glue, allowing the driver to zoom confidently into corners. In wet weather, the all-wheel-drive system redistributes power to maximize traction, giving you a more connected feeling to the road in Plant City.

The Subaru WRX also features a track-tuned suspension, rear anti-roll bars, a double-wishbone rear suspension, and reinforced suspension mountings. To sharpen the cornering response for tighter lines, the WRX features Active Torque Vectoring and Vehicle Dynamics Control systems. These systems reduce understeer and improve vehicle handling.

The WRX STI is the most powerful in this impressive lineup. It comes powered by a 2.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that is undoubtedly more powerful than the base WRX. It produces an impressive 310 horsepower and 290 pound to feet of torque. The WRX STI is tuned for extreme performance. As it features a stiffer suspension and a driver-adjustable center differential, but the WRX STI may feel a bit stiff for day-to-day driving in Lake Wales. However, it is perfect for off-road ventures and tight cornering. The Subaru WRX STI feels right at home on the rally track.


Confidence Comes Included with the Capable and Efficient Subaru Forester

As you consider which SUV is fit for your lifestyle in the Plant City region, you've probably already settled on the fact that your future model must boast some seriously impressive fuel-economy ratings. Don't overlook the Forester just because it features a standard Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive system. The vehicle is capable of making 33 mpg on the highway and 26 mpg through the city making it one of the more efficient and green rides on the market already. What's more, is with that AWD system operating underneath your feet, you'll be able to trek through flooded streets and over slick roads without batting an eye. Interested in sending a few weekend camping trips? No matter what your seasonal itinerary holds in store, you'll be able to tackle it with ease thanks to the Forester's ample 8.7 inches of ground clearance and X-MODE system.

Interior Space and Amenities are Abundant in the New Forester

The Forester sports a total of 111.9 cubic feet of passenger volume in its spacious cabin meaning it's well equipped to handle moving your children and their friends to and from after-school sports activities. If you're looking to tackle some around-the-house projects and tasks, the vehicle can hold up to 76.1 cubic feet of cargo with its second-row seats folded entirely flat. If you're not in need of al that space for duffle bags and cargo, you can opt to only fold down part of the vehicle's second-row 60/40-split fold-down rear seat. We've all had those moments where we return to our vehicles with our hands full of foodstuffs. Thankfully, the Forester features an optional Power Rear Gate (standard on the Limited and Touring models) that's perfect for accessing your SUV's trunk when you're hands are tied up with groceries and after-work gym gear. Further interior features include a standard automatic climate control system offered second and first-row heated seats, an extensive layout of A/C vents, and plenty of USB ports to keep cell phones alive and fully charged as you travel throughout Polk County and the greater Central Florida area.
