It's Time to Open Your Garage to the 2018 Subaru WRX

A Rally-Born, Rally-Bred Standout Gets Refreshed for 2018—Much to Our Delight

The Subaru WRX is known for its rally-born performance lineage, and the 2018 model-year brings with it some juicy updates to appearance, performance, and technology. If you're in Albuquerque, North Valley, Rio Rancho, or South Valley and you're looking for an all-wheel drive (AWD) sedan that ignites a little thrill every time you drive it, it's time to take the 2018 Subaru WRX for a test drive at Garcia Subaru East.

 

 

A Closer Look at the Outstanding 2018 Subaru WRX Highlight Reel:

  • So, What's New for 2018?: On the outside, the 2018 WRX gets a refreshed front end, styled to be more aggressive and eager, as well as a retuned suspension built for tighter turns and a more comfortable ride-feel. Inside, the previous model-year's 4.3-inch display gets replaced by an updated 5.9-inch gauge display
  • Ready to Rally?: Whether you're an experienced rally car driver or you're looking to learn, here in Albuquerque we're lucky to be right in the area of a handful of rally driving schools, like the Performance Driving School at Sandia Speedway, or DirtFish, a driving school specializing in rally driving right in the area. Wherever you choose to rally, the 2018 Subaru WRX makes it possible and fun thanks to features like performance front brakes or Recaro® performance front seats, both part of the optional Performance Package. Beneath the hood, power remains the same, weighing in at 268 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque served fresh from a 2.0-liter SUBARU BOXER® engine. And here's one just for the performance drivers—a six-speed manual transmission is standard equipment, but don't worry milk drinkers, you can have your CVT as an option. As we mentioned above, the suspension is new and you'll certainly feel the difference in stability and steering.
  • Tech This Out…: When it comes to technology, the 2018 Subaru WRX wastes no time. With a 7-inch infotainment system and available satellite radio, Bluetooth® connectivity, a USB port, and Subaru STARLINK™ available, you can have apps like Pandora®, Aha, and available navigation features. Audiophiles will probably appreciate the optional Harman/Kardon® 9-speaker stereo system, too!
