Subaru Australia has increased the pricing of the iconic WRX and WRX STI hot sedans for MY21.
The WRX and WRX STI are both up $500 across the board, with the former now ranging from $40,990 to $50,590 plus on-road costs, while the latter checks in between $52,640 and $59,440 (see full pricing table below).
Speaking to CarsGuide, a Subaru Australia spokesperson confirmed no changes have been made to standard specification for either model, with their higher pricing prompted by exchange-rate pressures.
As before, the WRX is available in unnamed entry-level and flagship Premium grades, both with the choice of a six-speed manual or a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT).
Meanwhile, the WRX STI still is offered in unnamed entry-level, mid-range Premium and flagship spec.R grades, with all three exclusively mated to a six-speed manual.
Turbo-petrol boxer four-cylinder engines power the all-wheel-drive pair, with the 2.0-litre WRX producing 197kW/350Nm, while the 2.5-litre WRX STI develops 221kW/407Nm.
As reported, the next-generation WRX is expected to be revealed in April and will go on sale locally in the fourth quarter of 2021, with the new WRX STI to follow by about a year on both fronts.
