Direct Injection Boxer® turbo engine
Unique to the Subaru brand, every Subaru vehicle is powered by a Boxer® engine. Nicknamed so due to the punching action of its horizontally-opposed pistons, Boxer® engine design results not only in superior power delivery and the typical Subaru thrum in the exhaust note, but also a smooth, balanced drive, playing perfectly into the hands of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive™.
A totally new engine for the WRX gives it more of everything. Advanced direct injection technology makes it more efficient and peak torque comes on more quickly for responsiveness that is easily accessible in any driving environment.
