It’s hard to believe the 2016 Subaru WRX can get any better, but indeed it does – Subaru debuted an all-new, bar-setting WRX for the 2015 year, and now for 2016, the iconic WRX pushes forward adding even more features and amenities including new 18-inch alloy wheels and upgraded suspension; a more refined audio system and navigation setup; and an available rear radar safety system with full-perimeter prevention adding Blind Spot Detection, Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

Plus, a new one-touch turn signal for added convenience. The Sport Package now gets  door mirrors with LED-integrated turn signals, while the Sport-tech Package finds new 18-inch aluminum alloy wheels and upgraded suspension.

  1. The WRX was famous for its raw driving experience, it is sad to see that rawness taken away by the addition of these fancy new features. However, the addition of the new features is also a good thing as it makes the car more refined and up to date with its competition. Still one of my favourite cars ever!
