If you're in the market for a classy sports sedan, the 2018 Subaru WRX has everything you need to make a statement on the road. It also won't break the bank with its $26,995 starting MSRP. From the distinct trims to the impressive engine power and sporty interior accents, here's an in-depth look at what makes the 2018 Subaru WRX worth taking out for a spin.

Trim Levels (Exterior)

This sedan is offered in five varying trims, including the base WRX, Premium, Limited, STI, and STI Limited. You'll also find stylish exterior colors to choose from, such as Ice Silver Metallic, Dark Gray Metallic, and Lapis Blue Pearl. There are plenty of available design amenities to enjoy as well. These include 17-, 18-, or 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels with summer tires, halogen or LED steering responsive headlights, and a glass moonroof with power sliding/tilting capabilities.

Engine (Power)

Under the hood of the WRX, Premium, and Limited sits a standard 2.0-liter turbocharged SUBARU BOXER four-cylinder engine capable of reaching 268 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Meanwhile, you get even more power with the top two trims - the STI and STI Limited - thanks to a 2.5-liter turbocharged SUBARU BOXER four-cylinder that's capable of producing up to 305 horsepower and 290 pound-feet of torque. These units perfectly complement the fully synchronized six-speed manual transmission you'll find with each trim.

Performance

Easily tackle tough terrain with the help of Nissan's symmetrical all-wheel drive powertrain and traction control system that transfer torque to all four wheels when necessary to reduce wheel slippage and give you a more confident ride. You'll also benefit from a sport-tuned four-wheel independent suspension system and a brake assist system for maintaining control of your vehicle.

We round out the category with fuel efficiency. The base WRX, Premium, and Limited get up to 21 miles per gallon in the city and 27 on the highway. The STI and STI Limited come in just under that with 17 in the city and 22 on the highway.

Interior

The 2018 Subaru WRX's interior comforts aren't lacking either. This sedan offers 96.6 cubic feet of passenger volume (without the moonroof) and 12 cubic feet of trunk storage for carrying groceries or personal items. You can also fold down the 60/40 split rear seatback for extra cargo space.

No matter which trim you choose, you'll benefit from standard perks like electronic cruise control, center console cup holders, a 12-volt power outlet for charging your devices, and a STARLINK multimedia system complete with smartphone integration, Bluetooth connectivity, high-definition radio, and a high-resolution LCD touch screen.

There are a few noticeable differences among trims as well. For instance, the WRX, Premium, Limited, and STI feature performance-design front seats, while the top STI Limited boasts German-designed Recaro front seats. However, the STI and STI Limited also come with a red-stitched leather-wrapped steering wheel and dual-zone automatic climate control.

Safety Features

When it comes to safety, the 2018 Subaru WRX doesn't mess around. It features standard benefits like a driver's knee air bag and side-curtain air bags, front seats with whiplash protection and height-adjustable head restraints, and tire pressure monitoring. You also won't have to worry about someone messing with your sedan thanks to this vehicle's engine immobilizer technology and anti-theft security system.
