This is the modern classic you’re looking for.
Driving a 2016 Subaru WRX Limited like this one comes with plenty of advantages. This is a JDM performance car you can drive is any weather, instead of always having to wait for the warmer months to enjoy some fun. This is due in part to the amazing symmetrical all-wheel-drive system that has made modern Subarus champions of snow driving. You’ll find torque vectoring tightens up handling even more.
Adding so much to the fun factor is a 2.0-liter turbocharged boxer four-cylinder engine. Normally a four-banger isn’t anything to get all worked up about, but this low-slung powerplant whips out a healthy 268-horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque. Keeping things pure is a wide-ratio 6-speed manual transmission, which features carbon synchronizers for the first and second gears for improved performance. When you hear the deep note coming out of the quad exhaust pipes and feel the rush of this car accelerating, you’ll become a believer.
An excellent Blue Pearl is considered absolutely timeless for any WRX. Painted sport wheels add a little bit of customization without getting too crazy. Of course, the hood scoop, front fog lights, shark fin antenna, etc. make a decidedly sporty statement. With low miles, this car has lived in Florida, so you’re not going to see rust buildup.
Being the Limited, this is the top-of-the-line WRX for 2016 and so it comes absolutely loaded. You get a nice sunroof for warm days. Leather upholstery and red accent stitching add a more premium feel than many would expect. LED low-beam headlights also come standard, so you enjoy better visibility at night or in bad weather, which is a huge plus.
The WRX is a legend among Japanese performance cars. Finding one in this good of condition with so few miles and no crazy mods isn’t going to be easy. If you’re interested in snagging this, it’s being sold through Garage Kept Motors.
