Subaru Prices 2024 WRX, Five Trims Available


subaru prices 2024 wrx five trims available

Adding the nesting doll approach more than one brand is taking with certain examples of their wares, Subaru will offer the 2024 WRX in no fewer than five different trims. This phenomenon of expanding the line of what used to constitute a single trim isn’t unique to the Exploding Galaxy – witness the VW GTI, for starters.

In any event, it’ll now cost ya $32,735 to get in the door of a WRX, up from $30,605 last year. Thanks, inflation.

That’s for the base WRX, a trim denuded of any suffix whatsoever. It has gear like the 11.6-inch infotainment touchscreen with CarPlay, basic gear such as LED headlamps, and rocks a six-speed manual as its sole transmission option. An extra $1,900 admits buyers to the Premium trim, showing up with better wheels, heated surfaces, push-button start, and an appropriate number of charging ports. Yes, that matters these days. Neighbors will be able to tell the difference thanks to the rear spoiler. A further $1,865 brings a Harman Kardon sound system and sunroof.

Limited trims and their fancy seats start at $39,015 for the stick and $40,565 for the why-bother automatic transmission. The revived TR trim, which is now positioned near the top of the WRX trim walk instead of at its lower end is $41,655 but is equipped with suede(ish) Recaros, a better braking system, stiffer springs, and retuned steering rack. Sticky rubber in the form of Bridgestone Potenza S007 summer tires will be on 19-inch wheels on this stick-only trim. Finally, the slightly weird $44,215 GT trim is automatic-only with power-adjustable Recaros and a suspension with selectable settings. None of those prices include $1,120 in destination and delivery.

All WRX models have a 2.4-liter turbocharged boxer-style four banger under its hood, making 271 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 258 lb-ft of torque starting at 2,000 rpm all the way up to just over five grand. All-wheel drive is standard, naturally. We obviously recommend the six-speed manual in a car like this, lap times be damned, instead of the so-called Subaru Performance Transmission which is just a CVT by any other name.

The 2024 Subaru WRX will arrive at retailers in early 2024.
