Last year, Subaru redesigned its highly desirable WRX sports car, re-shaping its four-door-sedan body and adding SUV-like flair in the form of angular black wheel arch trim.
What’s New/Key Changes From Last Year
There are no notable changes to the WRX for 2023.
Subaru makes the WRX in base, Sport, and Sport-tech trim levels. In all, a 2.4L turbo four-cylinder engine comes mated to a six-speed manual transmission and all-wheel drive. Sport and Sport-tech can be optioned to a an automatic continuously variable transmission (CVT).
The base WRX comes with heated side mirrors, auto on/off LED headlights, 17-inch alloy wheels, and a wiper de-icer. Inside, there’s a 7.0-inch touchscreen, six-speaker audio, automatic A/C, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and heated front seats. The sole standard safety feature is automatic high beams.
Sport trim adds LED fog lights, a sunroof, 18-inch wheels, an 11.6-inch touchscreen, Starlink connected features, dual-zone A/C, power-adjustable front seats, and passive keyless entry. Sport models also gain blind spot monitoring, lane change assist, and rear cross-traffic alert.
Sport-tech brings steering-responsive headlights, navigation, an 11-speaker stereo, heated rear seats, and Ultrasuede upholstery.
Sport and Sport-tech can be optioned with the EyeSight suite of adaptive cruise control, emergency steering assist, lane keeping/centering assist, and forward collision mitigation. In those trims, EyeSight is bundled with the CVT.
Subaru’s fuel consumption estimates are 12.3/9.0 L/100 km (city/highway) with the manual transmission, and 12.7/9.4 L/100 km for cars with the CVT.
