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.



With immense power and speed comes massive safety concerns. However, the Subaru WRX does a whole lot to mitigate the effects of an accident or prevent one from happening entirely. The WRX comes standard with a four-wheel anti-lock braking system, a traction control system, a tire pressure monitoring system, and an impressive seven airbags. A rear vision camera and daytime running lights are also standard features on the WRX. A brake assist system detects how quickly the brake pedal is pressed and immediately applies maximum brake pressure.

Other features are available at an additional cost. These include adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, and pre-collision braking. More safety features are available in the form of Subaru's EyeSight Driver Assist technology, which optimizes cruise control and monitors traffic movement through Lakes Wales. It also warns you whenever you sway out of your lane.
