2016 SUBARU WRX: Appearing at the 108th annual Chicago Auto Show, Feb. 13-21, 2016, is the new-generation Subaru WRX and WRX STI sport compact sedans. With bold new aero body design, and stiffer, more agile chassis, the 2016 Subaru's WRX models come equipped with a 268-horsepower 2.0-liter direct injection turbo Boxer engine, while the WRX STI is packed with Subaru's 305-hp 2.5L turbocharged/intercooled Boxer engine, teamed exclusively with a specially reinforced six-speed manual gearbox. Unique to this model is the rally-bred drivetrain and symmetrical all-wheel drive handling. Examples of the special standard equipment include the active torque vectoring, multi-mode driver controlled center differential, multi-mode vehicle dynamics control and a Brembo performance brake system with Super Sport ABS. Additional cutting edge updates include EyeSight driver assist technology, lane keep assist, blind spot detection, lane change assist, and rear cross traffic alert. A bolder front design makes the '16 WRX STI look ready to devour the road. The "nose-cone" configuration combines the grille and bumper cap into one unit ahead of the hood, which is made from aluminum to reduce weight over the front of the car. Narrower headlights flank the Subaru hexagonal grille with new standard LED low-beam headlights. The special hood, fenders, doors and quarters, bumpers, headlights and LED taillight clusters convey the WRX STI identity. A full aerodynamic body package includes the large trunk spoiler and a rear diffuser. Within the driver-focused, five-passenger interior, is Alcantara seating surfaces accented by red and black bolsters and red stitching. The driver sits behind the flat-bottom steering wheel in whiplash-reducing performance-design seat, and for the first time in a WRX STI, availability of a Harman/Kardon premium audio system. If you need to haul some cargo, the new WRX and WRX STI provide an EPA trunk volume rating of 12.0 cu. ft.
