Power Meets Precision: The WRX's Engine and Handling

Underneath the hood of the 2017 Subaru WRX lies a beast: a turbocharged 2.0-liter BOXER engine roaring with 268 horsepower. This powerplant is an adrenaline factory, ready to deliver a rush of excitement with its turbocharged gusto. Opt for the classic six-speed manual transmission for a hands-on thrill, or the available CVT for a smooth yet stirring ride.

The symphony of handling this sedan orchestrates is no less than a masterpiece, thanks to Subaru's rich rally lineage. The WRX doesn't just navigate curves; it owns them. With an all-wheel-drive system that grips the road with ferocious tenacity, it invites drivers from Hillsboro to De Soto to command every corner with newfound zeal.

Driver-Centric Design: Step Inside the 2017 Subaru WRX

The 2017 WRX welcomes you into a driver-focused cabin where functionality reigns. Controls are meticulously arranged for ease of use, ensuring that your focus remains on the exhilarating journey ahead. In the higher trims, sport seats await to embrace and support you, providing comfort that endures even the most spirited of drives.

The WRX surprises with ample space, defying the typical performance sedan mold. Boasting a trunk with 12 cubic feet of space, it's prepared to accommodate the diverse lifestyles of drivers from Park Hills to Ste Genevieve, balancing thrill-seeking with practical living.

Tech and Connectivity: Your Command Center

Subaru's Starlink infotainment system, centered around a 6.2-inch touchscreen, becomes your gateway to a connected world. Upgrade to the 7.0-inch display, and you’ll have navigation and a premium Harman Kardon sound system at your disposal, ensuring the 2017 WRX is as smart and connected as it is wildly fun to drive.
