With the 6 speed manual gearbox, the all wheel drive framework has a thick coupling at the inside differential. It parts control 50/50 front to raise, and can rearrange torque side to side as footing needs emerge.
With the CVT-prepared WRX, Subaru spoons on all its most recent thinking in execution and economy.
