Subaru introduced the new-generation WRX and WRX STI for 2015 and won the hearts and minds of owners and industry leaders with its wide-body design featuring a significantly stiffer chassis resulting in an expanded handling agility and performance envelope. With the exception of new, performance tires and an optional (smaller) wing on the STI Limited, most of the changes on the 2016 Subaru WRX are on the inside in the areas of safety and technology. You won't be disappointed!

'New Features on the 2016 WRX-STI Include:Spoiler Alert - For the 2016 WRX STI Limited trim, a low-profile trunk spoiler is now available as a no-cost option in place of the standard large signature wing.
Eyesight - The 2016 WRX joins other Subaru models in offering the company's EyeSight system, one of the highest-rated front crash prevention systems by the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS). EyeSight, which is integrated with Adaptive Cruise Control, Pre-Collision Braking and Lane Departure warning, uses Subaru-developed stereo camera technology. Newly added to the 2016 WRX EyeSight system is Lane Keep Assist, which uses the vehicle's electric power steering system to help the driver keep the vehicle within its lane when driving on the highway. An optional Blind spot detection and rear cross traffic alert is available for the first time in a WRX but is included with the navigation on the WRX Limited and Limited with CVT. Includes turn signal mirrors. Learn more about Subaru's #1 rated EyeSight here >>
Steering-Responsive Fog-Lights - Models equipped with EyeSight also come with Steering Responsive Fog lights. This feature (which works when the fog lights are turned off) activates the left or right fog light independently, depending on the vehicle speed and steering angle, to provide enhanced illumination in the direction of the turn. The fog lights are pre-aimed for maximum coverage in corners.In-Demand Infotainment Technology
