2011 Subaru Impreza WRX Review & Road Test by Emme Hall
The Subaru WRX, a game-changing sport compact over the last decade, is a constant work in progress, with significant changes made in almost every production year.
2011 is no different—the WRX gets the widebody kit of its big brother, the 305-hp WRX STi.
That gives it a much more aggressive look, and a wider track. There are new wheels in a 17×8 size, up 1 inch in width from 2010. These changes conspire to add 33 lb to the ’11 WRX’s curb weight.
Despite that, the WRX is still extremely fast for an AWD compact car, in fact even faster to 60mph than the STi.
Our test car was loaded with options, giving host Emme Hall much to “holla” about in her video review of the 2011 Subaru WRX Limited. Enjoy!
