Discover the 2021 Subaru WRX

While the Impreza has been the longstanding compact sedan offering from Subaru, it's the WRX that you should go with if you prefer its performance-enhanced version. It also stands out from other compact cars with its standard all-wheel-drive and BOXER four-cylinder engine. The 2021 model year provides base-level, Premium, Limited, STI, and STI Limited models ensuring a model for every Roscoe, IL lifestyle.


The base BOXER engine on the 2021 Subaru WRX has a 2.0-liter displacement and an output of 268 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, which is unmatched by most other compact vehicles. Indeed, you can spring for an STI model for even more muscle in the form of a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with 310 horsepower and 290 pound-feet of torque.

However, if fuel efficiency is important to you, the 2.0-liter should be your choice paired with a six-speed manual transmission for exciting gear shifting. This powertrain produces about 21 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. Standard all-wheel drive ensures complete engagement of all tires with the driving surface to maximize traction.


As a performance-oriented vehicle, the 2021 Subaru WRX features two rows of racing-style seats, with a leather-wrapped steering wheel with red contrast stitching and aluminum brake and gas pedals. Upgrade from the base level to get front-seat heating, and the Limited gets leather seat trim and a 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat. The STI models get more sports-oriented cabins and seats that many of our Rockford, IL drivers appreciate.

Comfort and Convenience

True to its heritage, the 2021 Subaru WRX has a dashboard that incorporates electroluminescent gauges in its 3.5-inch LCD color display screen. Also featured is the vehicle's Starlink multimedia system, which comes with a 6.5-inch touchscreen that integrates elements such as Bluetooth wireless technology for hands-free phone calling and audio streaming. There's also a six-speaker AM/FM stereo system with a single-disc CD player and HD Radio for digital tuning, smartphone integration via Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a trial subscription to SiriusXM Radio, and two USB ports and an audio jack for hooking up portable devices.

With remote keyless entry, you can enter the vehicle by pressing the corresponding key fob button wherever you are in Freeport, IL. The Premium debuts a larger, 7-inch touchscreen to replace the 6.5-inch. At the Limited trim level, remote keyless entry is upgraded to proximity keyless entry to access the vehicle by just having the key fob on you. Plus, a push-button is added in the cabin to start the engine without an ignition key.

STI models get a dual-zone automatic climate control system, with the STI Limited distinguishes itself with a navigation system and nine-speaker 440-watt Harman Kardon stereo system.


For protection when a crash occurs, the 2021 Subaru WRX can activate the driver's knee airbag, two frontal impact airbags, two front seat-mounted side-impact airbags, or two roof-mounted side curtain airbags. There's also a rearview camera to activate a video image when you drive in reverse to watch what's behind you. However, to decrease the chance of a crash occurring, you can go with either the Premium or Limited to add the EyeSight suite of driver-assistance technologies, which combine pre-collision braking, adaptive cruise control, and lane departure warning.

For security, the WRX includes a theft-deterrent system that combines remote keyless entry with engine immobilization. If you go with the Limited or an STI model, Subaru adds the Starlink Safety and Security for functions such as automatic collision notification, SOS emergency assistance, a stolen vehicle locator, and roadside assistance.
