Features like the control and handling of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and an extensive protection system show that your safety is always at the forefront of Subaru design.

Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive

Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive flows power to all wheels simultaneously for maximum traction. And in slippery conditions, it instinctively sends power to the wheels with the best traction, helping you stay on the road and on course.

Variable Torque Distribution AWD

WRX models equipped with the Sport Lineatronic transmission feature Variable Torque Distribution All-Wheel Drive, using a computer-controlled planetary gearset center differential with a rear-biased torque split of 45% front and 55% rear. This advanced system provides outstanding driving dynamics that actively respond to changing road conditions and improves handling.

Available on: WRX Premium, WRX Limited

Smart Braking Systems

The Antilock Braking System (ABS) prevents wheel lock-up and helps maintain driver control. Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) balances braking, while Brake Assist can sense a panic-stop situation and apply full braking force to help stop faster.

The front brake rotors on the all-new WRX are nearly an inch larger in diameter and 25% thicker than previous models. This provides a 40% improvement in fade resistance, delivering outstanding safety performance for absolute confidence in every corner.

Standard on: All models


The horizontal layout of the SUBARU BOXER® engine allows for a low center of gravity for improved handling response. It also sits low in the frame, helping it to drive under the chassis in a front-end collision to protect the passenger area.

Advanced Protection System

WRX and WRX STI feature a total of seven front, driver knee, front seat-side pelvis/torso and side-curtain airbags. The advanced system uses an array of sensors to help deploy the airbags in the most effective way possible.

The ring-shaped reinforcement frame is designed to shield and protect in a collision. Made of high-tensile strength steel, it directs impact energy around the passenger compartment, rather than through it.
