2021 Subaru WRX Review

  • Spacious cabin with excellent visibility
  • Entertaining handling
  • Standard all-wheel drive can enhance traction and performance
  • Unrefined power delivery
  • Excessive wind and road noise
  • Interior quality lags behind competitors
  • STI's high-performance suspension makes for a rough ride
  • Keyless entry and push-button start now standard on the Premium trim
  • Based on the fourth Subaru Impreza generation introduced for 2012

The 2021 Subaru WRX is one of the more affordable performance cars on the market. It's got a relatively powerful turbocharged engine that sends power to the wheels through a standard all-wheel-drive system. It handles well too, with responsive steering and plenty of grip. Subaru also offers the top-level STI trim with a more powerful engine and a variety of other performance upgrades.

The WRX is showing its age, though, especially inside. While it's had some small updates over the years, the basic design dates back to the previous-generation Subaru Impreza that debuted nearly a decade ago. As such, the WRX isn't as refined or fresh as rivals such as the Hyundai Veloster and Honda Civic. It's loud on the street, too, and not in the way we want a sports car to be. Are these deal-breakers? Check out the categories of our Expert Rating below to help you decide.

EdmundsEdmunds' Expert RatingThe Edmunds Vehicle Testing Team evaluates a fresh batch of vehicles every week, pairing objective assessments at our test track with real-world driving on city streets, freeways and winding roads. The data we gather results in our Expert Ratings. They’re based on 30-plus scores that cover every aspect of the automotive experience.
Rated for you by America’s best test team
The WRX's combination of a high-performance engine and standard all-wheel drive is rare for a small performance car. If you drive it hard, the WRX can be relatively quick in a straight line, and handling is entertaining. Unfortunately, unrefined or unavailable in-car tech, a bumpy ride, sluggish throttle response in town, and a high cost of entry are all major deterrents. We'd recommend taking a closer look at one of its many highly skilled rivals.
There was a time when the WRX was a class benchmark in terms of speed and driving. But that time has passed. Acceleration is a surprisingly jerky and unpleasant experience. Full-throttle shifts cause massive lurches forward, and leaving the line quickly requires a launch technique that we feel is mechanically abusive.

Once you're up to speed, though, the WRX becomes more entertaining. Around corners, the WRX has decent grip and changes direction quickly. The steering wheel relates information the way you'd want it to. The Brembo brakes are easy to use in routine driving, and we didn't experience any fade in high-performance driving.
For a high-performance small car, the WRX is pretty competent in the comfort department. The optional Recaro seats are well bolstered and easy to adjust. Ride quality is less impressive. Small bumps aren't an issue, but large bumps and highway imperfections definitely upset the ride. There's also plenty of wind noise generated around the mirrors while on the highway.

The WRX's climate control blows cold air fast even on a hot day. The automatic controls are easy to set and forget. Two-level heated seats up front are quick to warm up too.
One of the highlights of driving a WRX is the interior's spacious and airy feel. The cabin is roomy enough to fit four adults easily, with large door openings that make it easy to slide into or out of all four major seating positions. Visibility is excellent, with thin roof pillars and large windows as well as a big windshield to see through.

The cabin is well laid out, with logically arranged and easy-to-learn controls. Unfortunately, the driving position is a bit funky because of the steering wheel's limited tilt adjustment. Also, the center armrest is located too far back to be useful.
The crisp-looking touchscreen in the WRX Premium is aesthetically pleasing, and it responds to commands quickly. Smartphone connection via USB is quick as well, with standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Once you start operating Subaru's Starlink system, however, things begin to fall apart. Audio quality is substandard and the options list is missing several features. Navigation isn't available, and the voice controls are difficult to use. Another issue: On manual transmission-equipped cars, you don't have access to Subaru's suite of safety features, which includes adaptive cruise control, forward collision mitigation and lane departure warning.
Whether you're comparing the WRX to its hatchback or sedan rivals, it falls behind class leaders in terms of cargo space and small-item storage. In both categories, it's got enough space to get by, but it doesn't offer any smart solutions in the interior. It also doesn't offer a particularly spacious trunk at 12 cubic feet.

If you're buying a WRX with a child seat in mind, there's plenty of space in the back seat, with easily accessed anchor points and enough room for a large rear-facing seat. Load-in should be easy thanks to the wide-opening doors.
The WRX has some of the worst fuel economy in its class by EPA standards. With the manual transmission, the WRX gets an estimated 23 mpg combined, which is lower than even high-performance rivals such as the Civic Type R (25 mpg). Our test WRX averaged 24.1 mpg on our highway-biased 115-mile evaluation route, which indicates the EPA figures should be pretty accurate.
You have to really want a WRX to buy a WRX. Fuel economy ratings are some of the worst in the class, interior quality is uninspiring, and the price can be hard to justify when you start considering the missing features. A loaded-up WRX can cost as much as a Civic Type R, which is simply a better car.

For the class, the WRX's warranty is average: three years/36,000 miles of basic coverage, five years/60,000 miles of powertrain coverage, and corrosion coverage for five years/unlimited miles. Roadside assistance lasts the life of the basic warranty.
The WRX moves quickly between corners, but it does so with less poise than most of its competition. If you've driven a car that's been modified with go-fast aftermarket parts, it's sort of like that — an assortment of upgrades that don't quite play well together. If you're committed to getting a performance Impreza, we think the STI holds a bit more sway in this category, even if it's significantly less comfortable on the open road.

Which WRX does Edmunds recommend?

Get the WRX Limited trim. It's not as powerful or capable as the STI, but it offers more features at a lower price and is more comfortable in day-to-day driving.

Subaru WRX models

The 2021 Subaru WRX sedan is available in five trim levels: base, Premium, Limited, STI and STI Limited. The base, Premium and Limited trims use a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine (268 horsepower, 258 lb-ft of torque), a six-speed manual transmission and all-wheel drive. An automatic is available as an option on certain trims. Stepping up to the WRX STI gets you a turbocharged 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder (310 hp, 290 lb-ft of torque) paired exclusively with a six-speed manual.

Base
A base WRX is somewhat of a performance bargain. It lacks some of the creature comforts you'll find on other trims, but it does offer the same level of performance as other non-STI models. Standard features include:

  • 17-inch wheels with performance tires
  • Manually adjustable front seats
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter
  • Two USB ports
  • Automatic climate control
  • 6.5-inch infotainment screen
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration

Premium
The WRX Premium includes all of the base trim's features, adding:

  • Optional automatic transmission
  • Sunroof
  • 18-inch wheels with performance tires
  • Foglights
  • Keyless entry with push-button start
  • Automatic headlights
  • 7-inch infotainment display
  • All-Weather package
    • Windshield wiper de-icer
    • Heated front seats

Automatic-equipped models also include Subaru's EyeSight driver assist system that includes:

  • Adaptive cruise control (adjusts speed to maintain a constant distance between the vehicle and the car in front)
  • Forward collision mitigation (warns if a front impact is imminent and applies the brakes if you don't respond in time)
  • Lane departure warning (alerts you if the vehicle begins to drift out of its lane)

Limited
The Limited trim builds off the WRX Premium with:

  • LED headlights and foglights
  • Power-adjustable driver's seat
  • Leather upholstery

An option package for the Limited adds:

  • Navigation system
  • Harman Kardon audio system
  • Blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert (warns you if a vehicle is in your blind spot during a lane change or while in reverse)
  • Reverse automatic emergency braking (CVT-equipped only; warns if a front impact is imminent and applies the brakes if you don't respond in time)

STI
The WRX STI is the hottest and most powerful model in Subaru's lineup. It's only available with a six-speed manual transmission with shorter gearing than the WRX's manual, so EyeSight isn't available. Standard features generally mirror those on the WRX Limited. Changes and upgrades include:

  • 19-inch wheels with performance tires
  • Adjustable drive modes
  • Adjustable center differential
  • Quicker-ratio steering
  • STI-tuned suspension
  • Brembo brakes
  • STI rear spoiler
  • Manually adjustable front seats
  • Leather and simulated suede upholstery
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • No sunroof
  • No foglights
  • Optional Recaro front sport seats

STI Limited
The top-level WRX model features all of the STI's performance upgrades. Additional features include:

  • Sunroof
  • Front Recaro sport seats
  • Power-adjustable driver's seat
  • Navigation system and Harman Kardon audio system
  • Blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert
  • Optional low-profile spoiler

5/5 stars, Very fun car to drive
Brendan from CT,
STI Limited 4dr Sedan AWD w/Wing (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
This is my first STI; I had two WRXs before this. My only complaint is when it is in Sport mode it can be difficult to get into first gear...and this from a person who has been driving stick for more than 3 decades. Other than that, fun car, a real looker!

2021 Subaru WRX video

WILL KAUFMAN: Subaru fans rejoice. Subaru is finally bringing one of their limited run special edition STI models to the United States. And this one is a United States-only model. In recent years, it seems like the STI hasn't quite been getting the love it deserves. It's running an older engine on an older platform. In order to keep the car fresh, Subaru Technica International, Subaru's skunkworks, has gone over the car from nose to tail, making a bunch of changes to make it faster, more aggressive, better handling, and more desirable. From the outside, some of the changes are pretty obvious. Fender flares have been added, widening the car's track by about 1.7 inches. That means that this STI wears the widest tires on any Subaru yet. You'll also notice the carbon fiber roof to reduce weight, and the carbon fiber wing to increase downforce. Under the hood, you'll still find an EJ motor, but in S209, Subaru has added a larger HKS turbo charger. They've upgraded the intercooler. They've upgraded the pistons. They've done a lot of work to bring the power in this motor up to 341 horsepower. STI has also done a lot of work on this STI's suspension. They've overhauled a lot of the components under there. They've added bigger brakes for better stopping power as well. The only transmission you're going to find on an S209 is the six speed manual, which is the way things should be. Inside the, cabin along with some minor visual updates, you'll also find a little paddle on the steering wheel that lets you spray water onto the turbo intercooler, a nod to older STIs. Subaru is only going to be making 200 of the 2019 WRX STI S209. So if you want one, you should get in line now.

Subaru WRX vs. Honda Civic

Honda's hot hatch packs a powerful turbocharged engine paired exclusively with a six-speed manual transmission. It doesn't have all-wheel drive, but we think it's one of the best-handling front-wheel-drive cars ever produced. The interior and tech are a step up from the Subaru's too. In the WRX's favor: its lower pricing.

Compare Subaru WRX & Honda Civic features 

Subaru WRX vs. Hyundai Veloster

One of the newest entries into the hot hatch segment, the Veloster N has quickly become one of our favorite small performance cars. It is definitely small, though, with less rear passenger space than the WRX. We like the Veloster N's turbocharged four-cylinder engine and athletic handling, but all-wheel drive isn't available.

Compare Subaru WRX & Hyundai Veloster features 

Subaru WRX vs. Volkswagen Golf GTI

The original hot hatch is an icon of affordable performance. The GTI uses a turbocharged four-cylinder engine like the WRX, but it can't match the WRX's superior performance and lacks the Subaru's all-wheel drive. The VW has the edge on the Subaru in interior quality and overall refinement, and its hatch design makes it somewhat more practical.

2021 Subaru WRX First Impressions

What is the WRX?

The WRX is Subaru's high-performance compact sedan. It offers the practicality of a four-door sedan along with the utility of all-wheel drive and way more power than your average four-door Subie. Typically, the WRX is available in two performance levels: the standard WRX and the pumped-up STI.

While other Subaru models such as the Crosstrek, Forester and Impreza already ride on the Subaru Global Platform, the 2020 WRX didn't make the jump yet — we expect that will change for 2021. With the move to the new platform, the WRX will probably get an updated infotainment system, added driver aids and new interior touches. The platform is also slightly larger, meaning the WRX will get a longer wheelbase and a wider stance. And a bigger footprint will bring bigger power — likely in the form of Subaru's turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine (also known as the FA24).

Subaru's 2.4-liter engine already provides power for the Ascent and versions of the Legacy and Outback. In those applications, the 2.4-liter engine produces 260 horsepower, but in the WRX and WRX STI, it will likely make much more. With the current WRX putting out 268 hp and the STI producing 310 hp, we expect the next-generation models to be somewhere in the neighborhood of 300 to 350 hp. When you consider modern rivals like the Honda Civic Type R, the Hyundai Veloster and the Volkswagen Golf R, a 400-horsepower WRX would certainly have a leg up on the competition.

EdmundsEdmunds says

The WRX is a fast, fun, practical option, especially if you need all-wheel-drive for winter weather — and the redesign coming for 2021 is likely to make it even faster and more capable. With such a big change in the offing, we'd certainly understand the temptation to hold off on buying a current-gen WRX. We don't expect full details on the next-gen WRX to be announced until late 2020.

Should I lease or buy a 2021 Subaru WRX?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
