2015 Subaru WRX

LOS ANGELES -

Subaru officially took the wraps off its new 2015 WRX Wednesday at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show.

The small sedan has been a popular choice among driving enthusiasts, and Subaru hopes to cater to them with a new 268-horsepower engine and a standard six-speed manual transmission. Torque comes in at 258 foot-pounds and a continuously variable automatic transmission is also available.

Adding to the new car’s sporting credentials are a stiffer chassis, larger brakes and a performance-tuned suspension. Cars with the automatic transmission will get a special type of all-wheel-drive system that continuously varies the amount of power going to the front and rear wheels.

Inside, Subaru says, the new car has more interior space thanks to a slightly longer wheelbase, and upgraded materials. It will also be available with a premium Harman/Kardon audio system.

Watch for the new WRX at Subaru dealerships in 2014.
