2015 Subaru WRX Makes World Debut at L.A. Auto Show

November 21, 2013

Subaru of America Inc. yesterday introduced the 2015 WRX at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Powered by a new 268-horsepower 2.0-liter direct-injection turbo BOXER engine, the 2015 WRX debuts the model’s first six-speed manual transmission and a new, optional performance automatic transmission the Sport Lineartronic with two manual modes.

For 2015, the Subaru WRX features a new torque-vectoring system that supplements the standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system — torque vectoring allows for improved cornering speeds and handling. The new and stiffer chassis and larger brakes performance-tuned suspension remain important to the WRX performance character, says Subaru.

In addition, the new powertrain also yields higher fuel efficiency than the previous model.

Other new performance-oriented details include foglight surrounds (with a carbon fiber-like pattern and vertical front fender vents), new LED low-beam headlights and side sill spoilers that help to protect the doors from rock chips, says Subaru.

According to Subaru, the new WRX 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder BOXER engine uses a combination of direct fuel injection, high compression (10.6:1), Subaru Dual Active Valve Control System (D-AVCS) and a twin-scroll turbocharger.

The engine produces 268 horsepower at 5,600 rpm, accompanied by a broad torque curve that peaks at 258 lb.-ft. over a 2,000-5,200 rpm engine speed range.
