Details on the 2021 Subaru WRX and WRX STI are out, and to nobody’s surprise, hardly anything changes. The STI’s base price goes up by $250 to make it $38,170. And Subaru has filtered keyless entry with push-button start down to the WRX Premium. It was previously only standard on the Limited trim. You’ll pay a bit more for the convenience, too, as Subaru upped the price of the Premium trim by $250 (now totaling $30,970) this year.
And that’s it for changes to the 2021 models. At this point we have our sights set on a next-gen WRX. The Subaru Levorg revealed earlier this year was the best preview of what to expect when the car is finally revealed here. Report after report have suggested new platforms and new engines are on the way. Spy shots of the next-gen car slathered in camouflage surfaced a couple months ago. It’s coming, and it’s likely going to arrive sometime in 2021 as a 2022 model year car.
Subaru didn’t announce any “Final Edition” or similar limited edition models in this news bulletin. That could still be coming, as models like the Series.White, Series.Gray and Series.HyperBlue have all been built in recent years.
If you want one of the 2021 models, Subaru says they’ll begin to arrive in dealers come March 2021. Don’t wait around and waste away the snowy winter months waiting on the 2021, though, because the 2020 models are nearly identical.
