Cherry Hill, N.J. - November 17, 2014 - Subaru of America, Inc. announced today that AUTOMOBILE has named the all-new 2015 Subaru WRX and WRX STI to its prestigious All-Star list for 2015. Judged against every new car currently on sale in the U.S., the WRX/WRX STI was one of just 10 cars selected to the All-Star list. This award follows an All-Star award earned in 2013 for the model year 2014 Subaru BRZ.
“Subaru has continued to build positively on what has become an iconic lineup for the brand,” saidAUTOMOBILE Editor-in-Chief Mike Floyd. “Whipping the WRX STI around the track was one of the great pleasures of All-Star week, with its magnificently notchy six-speed and all-wheel drive allowing for effortless drifts into GingerMan Raceway’s sweepers. The WRX also just keeps getting better while maintaining its essential all-wheel DNA and remains one of the best performance-car bargains in the world. It’s a lineup most worthy of 2015 All-Star status.”
Since 1990, AUTOMOBILE has chosen its All-Stars from the complete array of vehicles on sale in the U.S., including passenger cars, sports cars, sport-utilities, minivans, and trucks. The brand’s collective editorial staff and contributors cast their private ballots after three days of driving a variety of 2015 model year contenders at GingerMan Raceway in South Haven, Michigan, as well as on public roads.
“We are proud to have the WRX and WRX STI selected as an All-Star for 2015 by the editors ofAUTOMOBILE,” said Thomas J. Doll, president and chief operating officer, Subaru of America, Inc. “This endorsement is a testament to the WRX and WRX STI’s all-wheel-drive performance both on a racetrack and on everyday roads.”
The Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive Subaru WRX comes standard with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder 268 horsepower engine, mated to a six-speed manual transmission, and is priced at $26,295. The higher-performance WRX STI model is priced at $34,495 and features a turbocharged, 2.5-liter boxer four-cylinder engine that produces 305 horsepower.
