What Is the 2019 Subaru WRX?
The Subaru WRX and WRX STI are compact performance sedans with room for up to five people. They have turbocharged engines, performance-oriented all-wheel-drive systems and racy bodywork. The WRX has a 268-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, and the high-output WRX STI has a 310-hp, turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder. It also includes other high-performance hardware like Brembo brakes and a driver-controlled center differential. The WRX faces competition from the Honda Civic Si, Ford Focus ST and Volkswagen Golf GTI, while the WRX STI goes up against the VW Golf R, Ford Focus RS and Honda Civic Type R.

What’s New on the 2019 Subaru WRX?
New limited-edition Series.Gray models — 750 for the WRX and 250 for the WRX STI — have a gray exterior, black badges and black 18-inch alloy wheels. WRX STI versions get 19-inch wheels and Bilstein shocks, too. Subaru's EyeSight safety system is now included standard on WRX models with a continuously variable automatic transmission, and updated multimedia systems with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity are offered.

A new air intake, retuned engine computer and high-flow exhaust system result in a 5-hp boost for the WRX STI's engine. Third gear in the WRX STI's six-speed manual transmission has been revised for faster acceleration, according to Subaru.  

What Features in the 2019 Subaru WRX Are Most Important?
Unlike many other compact sedans that have front-wheel drive, Subaru’s WRX and WRX STI are distinguished by standard all-wheel drive. Both cars still offer a standard six-speed manual transmission for those interested in shifting for themselves.

Should I Buy the 2019 Subaru WRX?
If you’re looking for entertaining performance and four-season usability in one car, the WRX and WRX STI are worth a look. That said, we're not impressed with the automatic transmission, and trunk space is limited.
