Gone, but not forgotten. Our 2015 Subaru WRX makes room for a replacement

Gone, but not forgotten. Our 2015 Subaru WRX makes room for a replacement

After three years, we’ve traded our 2015 Subaru WRX with CVT automatic transmission for a new, 2018 compact sport sedan.

The WRX has served us well.  We’ve loved it’s turbocharged 2.0-litre 268 horsepower flat-four engine, superlative ‘Symmetrical’ all-wheel-drive, outstanding fuel economy, and sportscar level handling.

After 3 years of ownership (we purchased it in July 2014) and some 41,000 kilometres, the WRX’s re-sale value has held up impressively well, depreciating ‘only’ 30-percent.  (By comparison, according to one website Trusted Choice, the average car depreciated 46-percent after 3 years.

In fact, until recently, Subaru Canada’s website  proclaimed the Subaru WRX as having the highest retained re-sale value in the sportscar category.
