The 2015 Subaru WRX drew mixed opinions from our editors at the 2013 Los Angeles Automobile Present the place a WRX clad in a striking red exterior debuted. Naysayers did not believe Subaru went far sufficient with an aggressive design and style, whilst others counted on the STI to be the aggressive and above-the-leading model.
2015 Subaru WRX: Up Shut
As one particular of those amongst the disappointed, the WRX’;s styling redeemed itself once I started testing a 2015 WRX painted Crystal Black Silica at our house base in Chicago. Vehicles often search better in black, proper? The black exterior looks to mask what I imagined had been awkward proportions among the rear wheel arch and rear quarter panel there is a lot of entire body back there and not a good deal of wheel to fill it.
Automobile display debuts can seem much diverse when they are off the turntable and on the road in a distinct paint shade or more organic lighting. The 2015 WRX is specifically muscular appearing on the street in the subtly sparkly Crystal Black Silica exterior paint paired with dark wheels. Our former prolonged-term 2013 Subaru BRZ was also painted Crystal Black Silica, though I prefer our quick-phrase WRX tester in this situation mostly since we never have to preserve the WRX’;s black paint for the prolonged haul.
