[Australia] WRX Is NZ Sports Car Of The Year
The new generation Subaru WRX has been named Sports Car of the Year by New Zealand’s prestigious National Business Review (NBR).
In the latest in a series of recent global awards for Subaru vehicles, WRX follows on from last month’s success, when it was named AutoCar New Zealand magazine’s Performance Car of the Year.
“It’s a tricky business when a carmaker decides to take a great sports car and introduce a more premium feel into the package,” said David Linklater, NBR’s motoring editor.
“There’s a risk that you’ll lose contact with the raw appeal that makes such a car special.
“The new Subaru WRX is vastly more refined and much easier to drive than previous generations, yet those who love the previous two decades worth will find the new model just as exciting and engaging as ever,” he added.
