In the fall of last year at the international motor show in Los Angeles it was presented to a sports sedan 2018-2019 Subaru WRX fourth generation, which first bore the name of 2018-2019 Subaru Impreza WRX.
The new car, compared with its predecessor, has a more dynamic appearance and a stylish interior.
In addition, the model has got a new manual transmission and a more “spirited” powertrain.
Thus, we begin a detailed acquaintance with the Japanese innovation, especially as the cost of Russian cars was announced in the middle of this year.
Exterior sedan 2018-2019 Subaru WRX model year Impreza is designed based on the appearance of the latest generation model.
This sports car is different in other preassembled on rims, a stylish air intake on the hood, sports bumpers, a modified front optics and lights on the stern, as well as a number of other less visible elements of the exterior.
All of this together made the car a more dynamic appearance and most sports.
Compared with the previous generation sedan, 2018-2019 Subaru WRX, the model has a more rigid body, a thicker bottom and a large number of zones programmed deformation of the body at the front and rear parts.
In addition, Japanese engineers have changed the angle of inclination of the windscreen, which not only provide better visibility, but also increased the aerodynamic sedan characteristics affecting the gas mileage and speed.
New slightly increased in length and now reaches to 459.5 centimeters, the distance between the front and rear axles also increased to 265 centimeters minute.
Vehicle width of 179.5 cm and the height is 147.5 centimeters.
Clearance or clearance height does not exceed 13.5 centimeters.
Track width front and rear is respectively 153.0 and 154.0 centimeters.
Depending on the curb weight of the Japanese news ranges from 1465 th to 1527-mi kilogram.
Many experts and ordinary motorists, too, is often criticized for the Japanese automaker is quite monotonous and rather boring interiors of its cars.
Apparently, the company finally paid attention to criticism and ensured sedan 2018-2019 Subaru WRX model year is quite cute and quite it modern interior with a good level of comfort and decent ergonomics.
Also in the new generation of sports car can be noted improved visibility from the driver’s seat.
This was achieved by reducing the height of the dashboard layout, as well as raising the driver’s seat.
Since the height of the Japanese engineers have lowered thresholds and increased opening angle of the door, it became much easier to fit on the first row of seats.
In addition, it should be noted, and increase the amount of free space, so in the back row at the knees added exactly 5 centimeters.
In addition, significantly improved the quality of materials used in interior design.
It remains to add that the racing car has a very respectable luggage compartment and its volume reaches 460-year-liters.
New 2018-2019 Subaru WRX sedan model year received only one version of the power unit.
Under the hood of his car, Japanese engineers have installed horizontally opposed gasoline engine with a displacement of 2.0 liters, which is made entirely of aluminum.
This engine is fully compliant with environmental standards Euro-5, received at its disposal a 4-cylinder, 16-valve timing mechanism such as the DOHC, direct injection technology and turbocharging system called Twin-scroll.
According to the automaker the power of this engine reaches 268 mi horsepower at 5600 rpm and maximum torque of 350 Newton meters available between 2,400 and 5,200 rpm.
The “base” power unit is equipped with a mechanical 6-band transmission, and for an additional fee as an option Japanese offer stepless variator Lineartronic CVT.
With the “mechanics” of the new generation of the car is capable of accelerating from zero to 100 kilometers per hour on the speedometer in exactly 6 seconds.
In the case of stepless variator on the first acceleration to “hundreds” spend a little more time – 6.3 seconds.
As for the gasoline consumption, with a manual gearbox the engine “eats” about 9.2 liters in mixed mode of motion for every 100 kilometers, and with a variator its “appetite” is reduced to about 8.6 liters.
In the process of developing 2018-2019 Subaru WRX model year, the engineers paid special attention to the suspension of a sedan, changing the settings of many of its constituent elements.
In addition, the Japanese significantly increased its rigidity, with the result that significantly improved the behavior of the machine at high speeds, and also allowed the best use of a bunch of opposed power unit with all-wheel drive chassis migrated.
In front of the car is set independent suspension with classical pillars “McPherson”, and received a feed independent multi-link design.
The wheels on both axles are equipped with disc brakes, with the front wheels mounted 2-piston caliper reinforced with 12.4-inch discs with ventilation function, and the wheels on the rear axle receive simple single piston caliper discs with a diameter of 11.3 inches.
Rack and pinion steering is offered in a couple of new adaptive electronically controlled hydraulic actuator, which is more accurately optimizes force during sharp turns steering.
A few words should be said about the all-wheel drive system.
Already in the basic equipment of the sedan 2018-2019 Subaru WRX model year, got the usual four-wheel drive, referred to as Symmetrical AWD, which, however, the Japanese engineers significantly upgraded and prepared its separate options for each transmission.
For example, for the version with 6-band “mechanics” the variant with center differential equipped with viscous coupling, by means of which the thrust is divided in a ratio of 50 to 50. In a modification of a stepless variator available option with a planetary differential, distributing traction in the proportion of 45 to 55 in favor of the rear wheels.
Already in the basic version sports sedan 2018-2019 Subaru WRX model year equipped with xenon headlights, alloy wheels 17-inch, air-conditioned, state media complex, heated first-row seats, and several other useful equipment.
With regard to the safety of passengers and the driver is already in the base case equipment include front and side airbags, curtain airbags and anti-lock brakes (ABS) and ESP system (VDC).
Price 2018-2019 Subaru WRX sports sedan model year in the base is at least 1,599,900 Russian rubles.
More luxurious equipment under the name WH, which can further boast, for example, a rearview camera and a power adjustable seats front row, the Russian motorists will cost not less than 1,684,900 rubles.
It is worth noting that sport sedan 2018-2019 Subaru WRX new generation has an even more athletic modification, received title to the supplemental index STI.
