About Subaru WRX:
Tromp the gas while rolling and prepare to wait. Your command for speed goes to committee as the engine revs up and the transmission dusts the furniture. By the time the transmission finds that lower ratio, the gap you were going for has been filled by a Corolla.
At the test track, this CVT-equipped WRX lagged the stick version, the quarter-mile taking 14.3 seconds at 99 mph, or 0.7 second and 3 mph behind the manual. Unable to launch the auto WRX as hard as the manual, we saw the zero-to-60 time stretch from 4.8 seconds to 5.5 seconds. When you brake-torque the automatic, the engine revs up to 2500 rpm and the transmission goes into a sort of maximum-acceleration mode, whereby it drops the shifting charade and acts like the CVT that it is. Once you’re off, the engine reaches 6400 rpm in the lowest ratio and remains there as speed rises, until it dips to a steady 6200 rpm beyond 60 mph.
Aside from the transmission, the rest of the WRX, from its supportive seats to its Dunlop Sport Maxx RT tires, is just like the manual. The steering remains accurate and full of feel, and the chassis handles speed securely, with high and exploitable limits. The brakes don’t grab hard in normal use, but when you pound on them they’ll stop the WRX from 70 mph in a short 156 feet.
Subaru does allow you to shift for yourself using column paddles, which can mitigate the transmission’s delays. But if you’re willing to work this hard, you might as well save the $3400 and get the stick. Automatic buyers also will have to step up to the Premium trim level, as the auto isn’t available in the base WRX.
