The 2016 Subaru WRX is back for its second year on the market, and it's continuing to turn the world of sports cars with an exhilarating driving experience. It gives drivers a balanced performance plus the innovations needed to enjoy each ride. To understand how this sports car gives the best of both worlds, here's our review of the 2016 Subaru WRX.

2016 WRX Design

The design of the new 2016 Subaru WRX doesn't steer too far from its predecessor. It still shares the same frame as the Subaru Impreza, but has its own styling. Its front and rear fenders are quite aggressive and its windshield pillars are thinner for better visibility. Additionally, it features a nose-cone front end you can only find in this vehicle.

An exterior like the one for the Subaru WRX has a great interior to match. It includes comfortable soft-touch accents and sport-design electroluminescent gauges. You will also find a leather wrapped flat-bottom steering wheel, an available power moonroof, and an optional 8-way power driver's seat for comfort and a hint of luxury.  Best of all, the interior of the WRX is roomy with over 96 cubic feet of passenger volume.

Sporty, Yet Efficient

The 2016 Subaru WRX includes two turbocharged engine options that generate its impressively commanding performance. Its standard 2.0L Subaru BOXER engine can provide up to 268 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. The available 2.5L option delivers 305 horsepower and 290 lb-ft of torque.  The WRX also comes with SI- Drive to customize throttle response to your preferred performance. In addition, Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and Variable Torque Distribution All-Wheel Drive are included to confidently trek through any terrain.

It's no secret the 2016 Subaru WRX delivers the power that sports car drivers crave. But this vehicle can also deliver great fuel economy. Overall, it can get between 23 to 27 mpg on the highway depending on the engine choice, and it uses technologies like SI-Drive for added efficiency. On top of that, the BOXER engine has the pistons fire horizontally for a more economic performance.

Advanced Features

Advanced technologies for the 2016 Subaru WRX round out its driving experience, as they add innovation to its powerful performance and striking style. It comes with the Subaru STARLINK in-vehicle technology infotainment system where you can find everything from satellite radio to a variety of entertaining apps. A navigation system is also included for convenience during your travels.

As a Subaru vehicle, the WRX delivers exceptional safety features as well. With its Subaru EyeSight driver assist technology system, you're warned when there's a risk of frontal collision, and it can apply brake force to avoid a crash.
