A 1990s Subaru favourite is back to lead the 2024 WRX range as pricing is confirmed for the Club Spec variant along with changes to other grades.

Available in a limited run of 150 units, the 2024 Subaru WRX Club Spec starts from $52,590, before on-road costs, bringing with it some performance upgrades in areas other than the drivetrain, plus stand-out styling changes.

Additionally, the rest of the Subaru WRX range has seen some minor updates, with pricing changes for some variants like the base model, which is now $1500 more expensive, at $47,490.

Aside from the addition of the Club Spec, 2024 WRXs now come with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, the brand's 'EyeSight' suite of active and passive safety features plus new colours and a 10-speaker Harman Kardon sound system for Sportwagon variants.

Different variants have changed pricing to varying degrees, as outlined in the table below.

The 150 Club Specs are differentiated by their STI-style rear wings, matt grey paint, 19-inch alloy wheels wrapped in Bridgestone Potenza S007 tyres, plus six-piston front and two-piston rear Brembo brakes on ventilated and drilled discs, "specifically tuned steering and suspension" and inside, Recaro sports seats in the front.

The WRX remains one of a few new cars in the market offered with a manual transmission.

The WRX remains one of a few new cars in the market offered with a manual transmission, with the base, RS and aforementioned Club Spec all offered with three pedals.

The rest of the range is equipped with a continuously variable transmission, or CVT - the Subaru-specific branding for this is 'Lineartronic'.

All variants of the WRX retain the brand's 2.4-litre turbocharged 'flat' four-cylinder engine, which outputs 202kW and 350Nm to all four wheels (as is Subaru tradition).

Racing video games, car-spotting on road trips, and helping wash the family VL Calais Turbo as a kid were all early indicators that an interest in cars would stay present in Chris’ life, but loading up his 1990 VW Golf GTI Mk2 and moving from hometown Brisbane to work in automotive publishing in Melbourne ensured cars would be a constant. With a few years as MOTOR Magazine’s first digital journalist under his belt, followed by a stint as a staff journalist for Wheels Magazine, Chris’ career already speaks to a passion for anything with four wheels, especially the 1989 Mazda MX-5 he currently owns. From spending entire weeks dissecting the dynamic abilities of sports cars to weighing up the practical options for car buyers from all walks of life, Chris’ love for writing and talking about cars means if you’ve got a motoring question, he can give you an answer.
