Performance sedans for the true enthusiast.

Outback

Introducing the 2018 Subaru WRX and WRX STI, the latest versions of the performance sedans with serious motorsport credentials and legendary all-road/all-weather capability. Forging their own path in a sea of sameness, this dynamic duo showcases the core technology that has created diehard followers around the world — namely, the turbocharged SUBARU BOXER engines and Subaru symmetrical full-time AWD. But the engineering has now been fine-tuned for even greater levels of driver engagement. Both cars feature more powerful brake systems and the WRX gets a strengthened manual transmission. The more hardcore WRX STI features a new electronic Driver Controlled Centre Differential for faster response and improved cornering capability. These unique sedans also boast more aggressive exterior styling and sportier interior accents to go along with surprising everyday comfort, cargo space, safety and versatility.
