Performance - Subaru WRX specs in Boulder

This is the 2020 Subaru WRX big selling point, plain and simple. The base engine is a 2.0L turbocharged power source, and it pumps out a total of 268 horsepower. Six-speed manual transmission is standard, and all-wheel drive is standard across the trim lineup. Performance tires and 17-inch wheels are also standard on the base trim. The STI models have a larger, more powerful engine that produces a total of 310 horsepower. The uplevel trims offer automatic transmission, but the STI versions are manual transmission only. The most powerful engine offered on the 2020 Honda Civic sedan is a turbocharged four-cylinder that makes only 205 horsepower. The WRX is therefore more powerful and delivers a very sporty driving experience. Acceleration is fantastic, and steering response is superb.
