2015 Subaru WRX, WRX STI Pricing Announced
Prices for the all-new 2015 Subaru WRX and WRX STI will not increase much from the previous generation cars. In fact, the new WRX will start at an MSRP of $26,995, or just $300 more than the outgoing model. The sportier WRX STI now goes for $34,495, or the same price it was sold last year. These prices do not include a standard $795 destination fee. For 2015, the WRX gains a new 2.0-liter direct injection turbo Boxer engine good for 268 horsepower. It also adds a CVT automatic transmission option which drivers can choose over a six-speed manual transmission. Surprisingly, the manual is more fuel efficient, and can now achieve increased fuel economy numbers of 21/28 mpg city/highway. Subaru also made subtle changes to the design of the car, including a new hood scoop, new lighting, and a more refined interior. Standard features on this model include a backup camera, iPhone connectivity, LCD screen, HD Radio, Bluetooth, and climate controls. Buyers looking for a little more luxury can step up to the WRX Premium, which costs $28,495. This model, which has not gone up in price from last year, includes heated front seats, power moonroof, windshield wiper de-icer, heated mirrors, and a low profile trunk spoiler. The Limited trim, going for $29,995, tacks on leather-trimmed upholstery, eight-way power driver seat, and ambient lighting. Those opting for the 2015 Subaru WRX STI model will receive an upgraded 2.5-liter turbo Boxer engine loaded with 305 horsepower. The STI features a stiffer chassis, active torque vectoring, and a revised exterior package. It is only available with a six-speed manual transmission. Key standard features on this model include an all-weather package with heated seats and mirrors, Bluetooth, HD Radio, satellite radio, and many other features available on the WRX. The WRX STI Limited, topping out the lineup at $38,495, features leather-trimmed upholstery and a harman/kardon premium sound system. Source: Subaru
