2020 WRX Series White - Concept Review

When it comes to high-performance luxury cars, Subaru might not have the instant brand recognition of companies like Ferrari or Audi, but this relative lack of fame is undeserved. The top models in the company's WRX range are up there with the best street-legal, track-oriented cars, yet they're available for a surprisingly low price.

Searing Performance

Based around a 268hp WRX Premium engine, with a six-speed manual transmission funnelling the power to all-wheel drive, the Series White offers searing performance that's equally at home on the racetrack or the highway.

 

Responsive Handling and Control 

 

With this much power available, the engineering needs to be designed with confident handling in mind. The Series White upgrades the WRX's standard suspension to a sport-tuned Bilstein configuration, backed up by Brembo brakes with eye-catching red calipers.

 

This set up gives a smooth and controlled drive even at high power, and the advanced steering-responsive headlights ensure full visibility however fast you take on the curves.

 

Interior Tech and Comfort 

 

The Series White's infotainment duties are handled by a 7" touchscreen giving access to the Subaru Starlink system, providing a full multimedia experience along with advanced navigation and smartphone connectivity. Starlink also includes a solid range of safety functions as standard, such as automatic collision notification, stolen vehicle recovery, enhanced roadside assistance, and more.

 

Comfort is ensured by heated front seats, made to the Recaro performance design to ensure an ergonomic driving position however hard you push the car.
