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.

    Case is getting a little stronger that a few of the one-note trolls really might be part of the internal TTAC family...say something or call them out on some BS and the comments get deleted in less than a few minutes. That wouldn't happen unless someone was watching and quickly deleting...mmm? Troll for clicks. Mighty low guys.

      Complain and complain and complain all day long. Go figure, given that suppository you "race".

    KInda the only option in it's price range and class with AWD, which for some, is essential for a one car approach.

    Why must I accept the undesirable-to-me sunroof in order to get the mandatory H/K stereo (mandatory due to WRX road noise levels)?!

  • VoGhost Fantastic work by Honda design. When I first saw the pictures, I thought "Is that a second gen Acura NSX?"
  • V16 2025 VW GLI...or 2025 Honda Civic SI? Same target audience, similar price points. Both are rays of sun in the gray world of SUV'S.
  • FreedMike Said this before and I'll say it again: I'm not that exercised about this whole "pay for a subscription" thing, as long as the deal's reasonable. And here's how you make it reasonable: offer it a monthly charge. Let's say that adaptive headlights are a $500 option on this vehicle, and the subscription is $15 a month, or $540 over a three year lease. So you try the feature for a month, and if you like it, you keep it; if you don't, then you discontinue it, like a Netflix subscription. In any case, you didn't get charged $500 up front the feature. That's not a bad deal.In my case, let's say VW offers an over the air chip reflash that gives me another 25 hp. The total price of the upgrade is $1,000 (which is what a reflash would cost you in the aftermarket). If they offered me a one time monthly subscription for $50 to try it out, I'd take it. In other words, maybe the news isn't all bad.
  • 2ACL A good car, but - at least in this configuration -not one that should command a premium. Its qualities just aren't as enduring as those of Honda's contemporary sports cars. For better or worse, this is a formula they remain able to replicate.
  • Jalop1991 I just read that Tesla's profits are WAY down "as the electric vehicle company has faced both more EV competition from established automakers and a slowing of overall EV sales growth." This Cadillac wouldn't help Tesla at all, but the slowing market of EV sales overall means this should be a halo/boutique car. Regardless, yes, they should make it.
