What Our Members Are Saying about the Powertrain of the 2018 Subaru WRX

2018 Subaru WRX Powertrain: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2017 4dr Sedan turbocharged 268hp 2.0L H4
6-speed manual AWD
The powertrain is well set up for performance. The clutch is light and picks up right from the bottom of its travel. The accelerator is problematic, giving nearly 100% throttle with only half of its travel. it takes a while to get a feel for the delicate touch needed to launch smoothly, but downshifting and drifting out of corners comes easily (at least in the snow). The powerband is not especially smooth, being a bit laggy below 2,000 rpm and running out of breath much above 5,500 rpm. Nevertheless, the harder you drive it, the better it seems to perform. I'm just past my break-in and still finding the best techniques for extracting the best from the engine. It's geared pretty low, so the revs stay down when cruising on the highway, and I've been seeing about 26-27 miles per gallon. Around town it's closer to 20 mpg. I expect both to improve, although I have to say it's getting driven pretty hard right now. see full Subaru WRX review
 

What Our Members Are Saying about the Tires of the 2018 Subaru WRX

2018 Subaru WRX Tires: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2017 4dr Sedan turbocharged 268hp 2.0L H4
6-speed manual AWD
The car comes with 18" wheels and 245/40-18 summer Dunlop Sport Maxx tires, which are perhaps overly stiff and offering little sidewall flex. Steering response is immediate and the highway ride is jiggly, but larger bumps are handled well, and frost-heaved New England roads can be run hard without losing touch of the road. I immediately mounted 17" winter wheels with 225/45-17 Michelin Ice3 snow tires and the ride has improved immensely and the tire noise has decreased despite the aggressive snow/ice tread. The combination of all-wheel drive and snow tires is a revelation in the big snow storms we've had. We've climbed hills with no drama while the local SUV's are slithering off. see full Subaru WRX review
