If you have been wondering how much a 2015 Subaru WRX or WRX STI will set you back, wonder no more. Subaru has announced the pricing information for their pair of rally-inspired sport sedans coming to dealers this spring.
The 2015 WRX will carry a base price of $27,090 (including a $795 destination charge). While that pricetag is up $300 from the outgoing 2014 WRX, the 2015 WRX gains more standard features such as a backup camera, 4.3-inch color LCD screen, automatic climate control, USB, Bluetooth, and satellite radio. Of course, we're forgetting the most important standard feature on the WRX: the 2.0L turbocharged boxer-four with direct injection making 268 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, mated to a six-speed manual.
Above the base WRX is the WRX Premium, which rings in at $29,290 for the six-speed or $30,490 for the continuously variable transmission. No matter which transmission you choose, the Premium comes with a spoiler, fog lights, moonroof, heated front seats and mirrors, and windshield wiper de-icer.
Topping the WRX lineup is the WRX Limited, which comes in at $30,790 for the manual or $31,990 for the CVT. The Limited adds leather upholstery, power driver's seat, and automatic LED headlights.
Those looking for a bit more bite will likely venture towards the 2015 WRX STI, which features extensive upgrades to the chassis, all-wheel drive system, and a turbocharged 2.5L boxer-four with 305 horsepower and 290 pound-feet of torque, paired with a six-speed manual.
Carrying a base price of $35,290, the WRX STI comes standard with dual-zone automatic climate control, heated seats and mirrors, windshield wiper de-icer, six-speaker audio system, USB, Bluetooth, and satellite radio. Wanting a bit more luxury? Then the WRX STI Limited is for you. The Limited adds leather, power seat for the driver, moonroof, and a Harman/Kardon premium audio system for $39,290.
However, if you're a hardcore Subaru fan, then you want the STI Launch Edition. This special run of a 1,000 vehicles will be draped in the classic Subaru competition colors: WR Blue Pearl and gold-painted eighteen-inch BBS alloy wheels. Launch Edition models will also come with blue highlights in the interior, Keyless Access & Start system, and a short throw six-speed manual transmission. The WRX STI Launch Edition will set you back $38,190.
