2016 Subaru WRX
Price: Starting at $26,595
Subaru’s performance models have always relied on 4-cylinder power, beginning with the first WRX offered to the U.S. market for 2002 with a 227-horsepower turbocharged horizontally-opposed (boxer) 4-cylinder, followed by the STI with 300 turbocharged horsepower in 2004. Redesigned for the 2015 model year, the Subaru WRX is even more of a sport sedan value than the previous version with a stiffer, more agile chassis, a new 268-horsepower 2.0-liter direct-injection turbocharged boxer engine and standard all-wheel drive. The WRX offers a new 6-speed manual transmission, a new Sport Lineartronic transmission with manual mode, and Active Torque Vectoring to enhance the vehicle dynamics system. The WRX STI takes things up a notch with a 305-horsepower 2.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder boxer engine, driver-controlled center differential and enhanced aerodynamic package.
