Product Overview

Subaru WRX (chassis code VA) facelift is an affordable compact performance sedan in production from 2017 to 2021. It was available with a range of flat-4 engines that displaced 2.0 to 2.5 liters.
Compared to the pre-facelift WRX, the facelifted WRX received only incremental updates. The car is still very much driver-focused, rally-esque directly from the factory. Whereas earlier attempts at forced induction by some manufacturers took character away from their cars, Subaru made sure that the WRX, especially in the STI guise, is a fun car with a high-revving engine. Manual transmission was widely available.
