The starting price for the new WRX is $4000 more than the model it replaces.
Starting with the sedan, the WRX is available in three grades, the unnamed base variant, the RS and top-spec tS, with the latter only available with the CVT.
The bigger-boot version is also available in three trims, the unnamed point of entry, the mid-spec GT and flagship tS, though no manual is offered with the Sportwagon.
Standard equipment includes dual-zone climate control, a flat-bottom steering wheel, an 11.6-inch multimedia touchscreen.
Safety systems are also comprehensive thanks to adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, autonomous emergency braking, speed sign recognition, forward collision warning – though these features are only confirmed on CVT-equipped models for now.
Moving up the grades will also net buyers a driver monitoring system, drive mode selector and adaptive dampers.
More details will be revealed closer to the WRX’s local launch, which is earmarked for May.
