Subaru’s offer for this year houses impressively performing chassis. Compared to last year’s model, the 2015 Subaru WRX is at ease in dashing through open highways. The driver and the passengers inside can bask in comfort on the cozy though not luxurious seats and the sound quality of the stereo for the on-the-road music tripping. Also, cargo is the least on the list to be worried about. The huge rear-door openings accommodate even the capacity of two large dog crates so your best buds can squeeze in for fun.
Despite the efficient chassis, comfortable seats, spacious interior and accommodating entrances, there are still room for improvement. Something that explains why Subaru WRX was not able to occupy the first three seats in sport compact category. Drivers are less satisfied regarding several details like the lack of automatic headlights, one-touch or three-flash turn signals and an external trunk release.
Optimizing the control on the engines can be a tasking on drivers. Boosted engine may demand concentration and careful right footing in order to keep things suave and agreeable.
With these specifications, there’s no wonder that Subaru WRX runs with the likes of Volkswagen GTI, Ford Fiesta ST and Ford Focus ST in competition under the division of sport compacts.
