The Subaru Impreza WRX is the high-performance version of the otherwise practical-minded Subaru Impreza sedan and hatchback. The WRX designation, which is short for World Rally Experimental, signifies the presence of a higher-horsepower turbocharged engine and a sport-tuned suspension that increases the car's performance envelope. The Impreza WRX STI model, meanwhile, is a product of the automaker's in-house tuning division, Subaru Tecnica International, and offers even more power along with a more advanced all-wheel-drive system than enhances cornering grip.
Subaru's history in rally racing has certainly influenced the design of the Impreza WRX and WRX STI, and what these all-wheel-drive performance cars lack in physical beauty they give back in the form of a thrilling driving experience. That said, performance also takes priority over cabin quality and ride comfort. Compared with other sedans and hatchbacks you might consider in this price range, the Subaru Impreza WRX and WRX STI come up short in refinement.
