2013 Subaru Impreza WRX: Brawny Performance, Impressive Value

MISSISSAUGA, ON, Aug. 3, 2012 /CNW/ - Subaru Canada, Inc. (SCI) is pleased to announce the release of the 2013 Subaru Impreza WRX.  Combining rally-bred performance honed on gravel and tarmac with the exceptional safety and ride quality built into every Subaru, the WRX is the vehicle of choice for driving enthusiasts who also need a versatile, affordable family vehicle.

Two years after a complete re-design and substantial upgrades, the 2013 WRX and WRX Limited Package return to dealerships bearing the prestigious ALG award for Best Sporty Car for the fourth year in a row, an honour awarded to the vehicle in the sporty car category with the highest predicted resale value. Not surprisingly, the WRX shares the honour with its WRX STI stable mate.

The WRX shares the wide body design first introduced on the WRX STI, underscoring the high-performance character of these models. The WRX 4-door design is based on a "wide and low" concept that gives the car an aggressive road presence featuring fenders that are stretched wider than the tail lamps, which accentuates a look of stability.

In front, sharpened bumper corners accentuate the assertive profile. A jutting lip spoiler with three-dimensional detailing and a front grille and blacked-out Subaru wing highlight the headlights' shape to give the entire front end a powerful appearance, accentuated by its large grille and bumper intake openings. The WRX also features a version of Subaru's polished stainless steel quad-tailpipe exhaust.

Both the 4-door and 5-door are powered by a 265-horsepower turbocharged/intercooled 2.5-litre Subaru Boxer engine teamed with a 5-speed manual transmission. The highly responsive engine produces 244 lb.-ft. of peak torque at 4,000 rpm.

Subaru Symmetrical Full-time All-Wheel Drive and Vehicle Dynamics Control

Standard Subaru symmetrical full-time All-Wheel Drive gives the WRX a significant handling/performance advantage over its front-wheel-drive competitors. Subaru symmetrical full-time All-Wheel Drive is a complete system comprised of the SUBARU BOXER engine and the full-time power distribution system (which varies by Subaru model and transmission). The aluminum SUBARU BOXER engine and efficient, symmetrical drivetrain layout help to lower the car's centre of gravity, which in turn contributes to its sporty handling characteristics.
