Subaru commemorates its trophy-collecting rally cars by producing sedan and wagon variations of Impreza WRX, a small package with wide track and independent suspension plus turbo-charging of a horizontally-opposed engine tied to a close-ratio manual transmission and AWD traction.
WRX TR is the value-oriented new model, joining the WRX Limited sedan and wagon packing a 2.5-liter boxer four with turbo-charger pumping out 230 hp.
Top trim STi has more equipment to tune performance and handling, with all power directed through a close-ratio manual six-speed transmission developed by Prodrive. Subaru's driver control center differential (DCCD) enables the STi driver to manually manage torque directed to front and rear wheels for performance handling. Further, the STi uses a limited-slip differential in front and back for additional tire traction.
