2017 Subaru WRX vs. 2017 Toyota Camry

The 2017 Subaru WRX features a host of new performance specs, a wide range of technologies to keep you and your passengers entertained, informed, and connected, and finally a spectrum of safety systems and devices that are intended to keep you safe and secure throughout the drive. Having doubts? Just compare the new Subaru WRX to one of its rival cars, the 2017 Toyota Camry, to see how the new vehicle excels.

Engine Performance

First, the new WRX gives you a choice of newly designed drivetrains.

  • The 2017 Subaru WRX - For example, the WRX offers a Direct-Injection Turbocharged engine that generates as much as 268 hp and also ensures 258 lb-ft. At the same time, you can outfit the new WRX car with a Turbocharged SUBARU Boxer engine that produces 305 hp as well as 290 lb-ft of torque.

  • The 2017 Toyota Camry - On the other hand, the base-line Camry is powered by a 3.5L V6 engine that only gives drivers 268 hp-not much when compared to the WRX's top-line trim.


Likewise, the 2017 Subaru WRX features a wide range of technologies that are designed to keep everybody on board engaged and informed throughout the drive.

  • The 2017 Subaru WRX - At the same time, the WRX provides you with a 9-speaker Harmon Kardon audio system with a 440-watt amplifier, as well as a STARLINK system that is meant to keep you and everybody else on board connected throughout the drive. Additionally, you'll get streaming internet radio stations, including Premium Audio and SiriusXM Satellite Radio.

  • The 2017 Toyota Camry - Yes, the Camry does offer up Entune App Suite as well as streaming internet stations like Pandora, iHeartRadio, and Slacker Radio. However, the Camry does not have the same 9-speaker Harmon Kardon audio, nor does it give drivers the WRX's patented STARLINK system.

Safety Devices

Last but not least, the new Subaru boasts a election of safety devices, too.

  • The 2017 Subaru WRX - For example, the WRX is intended to keep your protected with safety devices that include Eyesight Driver Assist, Advanced Protection Airbags, Vehicle Dynamics Control, Blind Spot Detection, and a Rear Cross Traffic Alert device.

  • The 2017 Toyota Camry - To be sure, the Camry gives you a Blind Spot Monitor, a Backup Camera, Lane Departure Warning, and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. Yet this car does not come equipped with the WRX's Advanced Protection Airbag System.
