And it just keeps getting uglier and uglier.
Yes, the new 2015 Subaru WRX isn’t much of a looker. It never really has been, ever since the first WRX launched years ago. But design is not what the WRX, or Subaru for that matter, is all about. The latest WRX is actually a bit slower to 60 than its predecessor, a fact that some may interpret as a weakness. However, once behind the wheel of this turbocharged small sedan you’ll realize how much handling and performance have improved.
Considering the amount of driving fun it delivers for its relatively affordable $30k or so price tag, there’s really nothing else out there that can one-up the new WRX (except for the also new WRX STI). Motor Trend’s Jonny Lieberman takes the 2015 WRX for an initial test drive and, well, wishes they still built a wagon variant.
