So here we have the new 2015 Subaru (Impreza) WRX, the all-new version of the road car that used to whet boy racers’ appetites around the world. Now all grown up and modern looking, it’s more refined and comes with an available CVT gearbox that promises to be sporty yet still efficient at the same time.
Only just out, and one model-year ahead of everybody else, the WRX has fallen into the hands of YouTube reviewers, and on first impressions it seems like a decent evolution, even with the snowmobile transmission option – a crisp new six-speed manual is available, thank goodness, and to me, that’s really the only available option.
Strangely, the reviewers talk more about this new Lineartronic transmission than the actual driving dynamics of the car, so we’ll have to wait for some other drivers to take it on track and document their findings there.
Until then, the street test videos for it lie after the virtual jump.
