As one of the most popular vehicles on the lot of our Subaru dealership, the 2020 Subaru WRX is also one of the sportiest. If you’re looking for a fast and sporty sedan that also has all-wheel-drive, you don’t have many options, and the 2020 Subaru WRX is practically in its own segment. One of the most common questions that we receive about this vehicle is regarding its transmission, whether it is manual or automatic.

Subaru Lineartronic CVT Transmission

The answer is whether the 2020 Subaru WRX has a manual or automatic transmission is that it has both, with the innovative Lineartronic CVT transmission. This cutting-edge transmission seamlessly blends the convenience of an advanced automatic transmission with the ability to manually control shifts in six- or eight-speed manual modes for enhanced driver involvement.

When the Subaru WRX is in automatic mode, the Lineartronic CVT adjusts instantly to match your acceleration, which eliminates the need to shift and preserves the vehicle’s momentum. When you switch into manual mode, the paddle shifters are mounted for fingertip control, which gives you the power to select the gear ratio that best suits your driving situation.

2020 Subaru WRX: Other Features

The Lineartronic CVT is only one of the features that makes the 2020 Subaru WRX a high performer. It is also packed with a direct-injection turbocharged SUBARU BOXER engine that delivers 268 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. Meanwhile, the standard Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive creates uniform stability and delivers an optimal distribution of power for maximum traction on all types of surfaces.
