All Transmissions Include:
The Subaru WRX comes with a new automatic transmission, and it is as reliable as ever. But the problem is that the car's automatic transmission is not perfect. Here are some warning signs that the automatic transmission might be about to fail. The first is a clunky shift, followed by a rough ride. Once these issues are discovered, the next step is to get it repaired by a professional.
The latest WRX is now offered with a six-speed manual gearbox, similar to the WRX STI. The six-speed manual complements the 2.0-liter, 268-hp Boxer turbo powerplant. It also offers wider ratios and improves responsiveness. But the best part of the new WRX is its performance. Its heightened safety features don't end there. A Subaru spokesperson confirms that the WRX is available with a CVT, and that the STI is available with a 6-speed automatic transmission.
The WRX is equipped with an 11.6-inch touchscreen infotainment system that uses touch inputs. However, there are still physical controls for climate and stereo. The WRX offers an 11-speaker Harman Kardon sound system. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are included in the list of standard multimedia features. The Subaru WRX comes with a four-year/50,000-mile warranty.
The WRX has an SPT, or continuously variable transmission. The WRX is also the first Subaru with a six-speed manual gearbox. The transmission is identical to the WRX STI and complements the 2.0-liter 268-hp Boxer turbo. The new gearbox is more complex and has wider ratio spread than the previous one. It also has a rev-matching downshift while braking.
The WRX automatic transmission comes with a six-speed manual and a CVT. The CVT is rebranded as the Subaru Performance Transmission. It has been improved to be more responsive and can make up to 30% faster upshifts and 50% faster downshifts. A WRX with CVT will have a higher center of gravity than a manual transmission. Its steering wheel will be angled.
The WRX is not available with an automatic transmission at the base model. The CVT is available only in the STI. It is a good option for those who want a car with a CVT. It doesn't offer the same torque as a manual transmission, so it is more expensive. It is still recommended for enthusiasts who want to drive fast. You don't need to be a pro to drive a Subaru.
The automatic transmission in a Subaru WRX can show signs of failure. It might be a sign that it needs to be replaced. This will cost you a lot of money, but it will keep the car on the road longer. It won't get you anywhere near the top of the mountain. The WRX automatic transmission is not as effective as a manual transmission, but it will work in most situations.
