2018 Subaru WRX and 2015 Subaru WRX comfort and timeless style

I drive a 2018 Subaru WRX. It is the base model so it doesn't have all the features. It has a black fabric interior with some leather features on the interior of the car. It's a stick shift car so when I first got it it was little stiff when shifting. Now that I've been driving it for a little while(5,000 miles since I purchased) and it has 18,000 miles on it, it shifts really smoothly now. It's a super fast fun car that grips to the route on the turns and it performs far better than I thought it would. The WRX is the original sparkly blue such unique color. One thing that is not that great is the price for an oil change, but the car is a turbo and drives like a dream so a pricey oil change is fine in my book because it puts out the right amount of power for my day to day driving. The interior of the car was very well thought through when they built it's very roomy and modern. Now for the exterior. The exterior like I said is a beautiful blue shade. It's very sleek and the style of the vehicle will remain timeless. I love this car so much. In our house hold we have 2. The other is a 2015 and it is almost identical with some minor upgrades. We love them both because of their reliability and comfort.

2018 Subaru WRX sti; your next car for the rest of your life.

The Subaru sti is by far my favorite vehicle that I have ever owned. It delivers tons of power with it is 305 horsepower turbocharged motor and exceptional handling with it is all wheel drive. I was pleasantly surprised by the mode selector feature that the newer WRX/sti models have. You can choose between 'intelligent, sport and sport sharp' modes. Intelligent lowers the power output of the engine and boosts fuel economy while the sport and sport sharp increase power at the cost of fuel efficiency. This gives you the ability to save some gas while driving in cities then open it up on the highways! The large touchscreen is a great plus which give you great views with the backup camera and large icons for music and other entertainment selections. 10/10 I would recommend this car to anyone who is interested in a reliable car that has substantial power.

2018 Subaru WRX is a great if unusual grocery getter for a small family.

The 2018 Subaru WRX is a great sedan for a small family living in suburban or semi rural areas. It's given me an average of 27 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway over the last 14 months. It's comfortable and spacious enough for day trips with the family and sporty enough to keep up with the flow of highway traffic and on ramps. The back seat is large enough to fit a car seat in the middle and still have room for two adults to sit on either side. The trunk has enough space to fit a jogging stroller and multiple bags of groceries. Optional roof racks and cargo systems expand the already impressive space even more.
