2018 Subaru WRX

Even if you plan to drive your new Subaru for ten years and pass it to your kids or grandkids, the resale value of your Subaru says a lot. A good resale value indicates that the engine, the body, and the interior are expected to age well. Whether you view your car as a forever ride or a short-term investment, you'll want to take a close look at the 2018 Subaru Impreza and WRX models.

Kelley Blue Book recognized the Impreza for the Best Resale Value in its class. The industry analyst has given the same award to the Subaru WRX in the sports car category. These two cars are expected to have the highest residual value within their segment in five years. This means if you sell them, you'll get more of your money back. If you keep them, you'll know you got a high-quality product that will stand the test of time.

The WRX made the 10 Best list for resale value. It has done that for ten years in a row. 2018 updates to performance, technology, style, and safety please the savvy shopper. Today’s WRX may wear Ultrasuede® with your leather choice. The Starlink media system gets its music from many sources including Sticher, iHeart radio, Aha, and Pandora. SiriusXM® and HD Radio ® provide even more ways to find the tunes you love. All-wheel drive sets this sedan apart from the rest. It has active torque vectoring, the perfect tool for safely cornering at speed. Your engine choices produce 268 or 305 horsepower. Either way, this is a speedy ride. Clever technologies include Brembo performance braking with 4-sensor Super Sport anti-lock brakes. Steering responsive headlights can light the car’s path better than traditional, stationary headlights. EyeSight® Driver Assist includes post-collision forward braking. When the airbags deploy, the car can respond by slowing or stopping the vehicle. This may spare the passengers a secondary impact when the driver is unable to control the car. Other elements include a lane departure watch and sway warning.

If you prefer the Impreza, you'll find a smart sedan at your command. Recent changes have made this generation of Impreza sedans more spacious. The extra inch in curb size has allowed it to grow inside. Built lower, it achieves better aerodynamics. The BOXER engine is placed for optimized weight distribution. This powertrain delivers 152 horsepower. A Lineartronic transmission offers to harness the car's outlay. Even with its standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, the sedan achieves 38 mpg/highway fuel economy. No other all-wheel-drive sedan can do that. Shoppers who look for affordability but demand a high-value product will be pleased to drive this sedan home.
