Subaru WRX

The Subaru WRX can trace its lineage back to the mid-1990s with the Impreza WRX, but it became a stand-alone model in 2013.

The all-wheel drive turbocharged four cylinder is a wolf in four-door sedan clothing, and offers a level of performance above other cars in the same price point.

For the current generation, Subaru is offering the 2.0-litre turbocharged WRX with a traditional six-speed manual or, for the first time ever, a continuously variable transmission. It's also offered in a higher spec STi version, which is powered by a turbocharged 2.5-litre four-cylinder boxer engine.

Current prices range from $40,990 to $59,440 for the WRX (AWD) and WRX STI Spec R (wing) (awd).
