About Subaru WRX

Being a turbocharged version of Subaru Impreza, the WRX went on sale in North America in 2001. The all-wheel drive Subaru WRX came in two body styles (sedan and wagon). The Subaru WRX was available with pattern used at Subaru's World Rally competition cars. Besides a turbocharged drivetrain, which base Impreza didn't have, the sportier Impreza WRX got larger brakes, firmer suspension, and wider tires. This compact four-door vehicle was powered by 2.0-liter engine with an output of 227 hp at 6000 rpm and 217 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm. Both sedans and wagons had an aluminum hood with functional scoop. New interior WRX parts for year 2004 were the revised front seats and gauge cluster. Such equipment, as heated front seats and a sunroof was new, but optional.

As for 2004 model year, new performance-oriented WRX STi sedan appeared, carrying a 300-hp turbocharged engine. This model boasted unique cabin trim and audio equipment as an option. As for the exterior parts, the STi featured larger “biplane” rear spoiler, taller hood scoop, and 17-inch wheels. The exterior of WRX was updated in 2005 with body color rocker panels, single-port exhaust, black painted headlamp bezels, and wheels, which were seen earlier on Legacy model. The handling of new WRX was better than the previous model's one due to the revised suspension. The same year both WRX and WRX STi received automatic climate control. Starting 2006, the WRX was offered in three trim levels: WRX TR (Tuner Ready), WRX, and Limited.. The biggest change for new WRX was the replacing of 2.0-liter engine (which was used since the model's introduction) by 2.5-liter turbocharged engine. The larger engine produced 230 hp at 5600 rpm and 235 lb-ft of torque at 3.600 rpm. The 2006 model gained significant redesign of its front-end. It received new Subaru parts: tail lamp clusters, boldly styled headlights with smoke-tinted lenses, and three-section mesh-type grille. While the STi kept 17-inch wheels, all other WRX models changed the 5-spoke16-inch wheels to 7-spoke 17-inch wheels. The chassis and braking system were also improved in 2006.

While the size of chassis increased along with the amount of safety equipment in 2008, its weight was left unchanged. The redesigned 2008 Impreza WRX featured WRX badge and darker wheels. It was based on shortened Legacy platform and it actually broke some Subaru traditions, receiving full frame doors and a hatchback body style. Speaking about safety equipment, the model gained (ABS) Anti-Lock Brakes with (EBD) Electronic Brake-force Distribution and brake assist. Gaining some power increase, the 2.5-liter turbocharged engine then produced 265 hp and 244 lb-ft of torque. Suspension parts from the STi made the new WRX stiffer in 2009. Enlarging in size in 2011, both sedan and hatchback will get wider body resulting in wider track dimensions. Its exterior parts are intended to attract younger buyers.

This turbocharged style-machine has become a mainstay on the show-car circuit, and that is no coincidence. Taking from its Impreza roots, the WRX adds more flavor and dynamics to what was already considered a complete package. The WRX can blast through the finish line, leaving a trail of onlookers behind, or it can simply cruise the streets decked out for a night on the town-your choice. Racers, tuners, and even "normal" drivers have all found something they favor about the WRX, but that isn't a surprise. Complimenting this model with the right accessories has become a right of passage, and seemingly one that isn't going away anytime soon.

A spoiler is intended to control the way the air streaming over the car is affecting the rear of the vehicle. Spoilers cause drag, and actually slow the car down or make it unstable, if not properly designed. A correctly designed spoiler can counteract the lifting forces that most cars experience when speeds get high, and keep the car on the road.
