The 2020 WRX continues to display the same hooligan-in-training personality that put it on the map, but Subaru has stirred in a few additional upgrades to keep things interesting. The Performance package brings Brembo brakes with red calipers (four-piston in front, two-piston in rear), a sunroof delete to save weight, and Recaro performance front seats. The driver's seat features eight-way power adjustability because even delinquents need to be comfortable now and then.

Pros
All-wheel drive, manual transmission, engaging personality.

Cons
Noisy cabin, low-brow interior, stiff-legged ride.
