Safety comes first. Even as we make it more fun.
Safety is at the core of every Subaru. For the new WRX, many of the innovations that make it more thrilling also make it safer, because the best way to protect yourself is to avoid hazards altogether. The grip of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive helps increase your power to evade danger and take on less-than-ideal roads. Multi-mode Vehicle Dynamics Control offers customizable performance whilst helping you regain control if you lose traction. You can feel reassured with the protection offered by the highly resilient body, Ring-Shaped Reinforcement Frames and added knee airbag.
Ring-Shaped Reinforcement Frames
A redesigned frame in all-new WRX offers improved safety characteristics thanks to the use of high-tensile steel, which makes it more resilient in a collision and heightens its handling precision.
Developed utilizing the latest theories of body strength and built to reduce impacts from any direction, the front side frame and sub-frames surround the engine. This unique structure then sees each of the pillars whilst the ring-shaped arches over, extending from the roof to the doors, pillars, and floor with a single tough and energy absorbing frame that is capable of reducing shocks and protecting the entire cabin area.
Even more peace of mind
The all-new WRX is added with a knee airbag on top of standard SRS*1 front, front side, and curtain airbags. The seatbelts feature a pretensioner that automatically winds in to restrain you and your passengers and a load limiter that reduces shock to the chest area in the event of front collision. For small children, the tether and ISO-FIX anchors allow the easy and firm installation and removal of child and baby seats.
*1 SRS: Supplemental Restraint System. Effective when used in conjunction with seatbelts.
