Subaru WRX and STI 2014 US specs at a price

By Posted 8 Aug 2013, 06:54

With the all-new Subaru WRX set to make its debut next year the Subaru STI and WRX in its current form will soon be released and so now has its pricing. What we have noticed is there is a slight increase, but did we expect any different?

This is the third generation of these Subaru’s and not much has changed from last year’s models, and so some of you will wonder why the cost has increased? From what we can see the Subaru STI and WRX 2014 US specs are pretty much the same as before, but the price increase is $200.

The 2014 Subaru WRX price will start at $25,995 and the more powerful 2014 Subaru WRX STI price will start at $34,495, although you will need to add the destination charges on to these prices, which are $770 to $795 respectively.

We have to wonder why anyone would still wish to purchase the third generation model when we know the 2015 WRX and WRX STI release is looming? Okay, production will not start for several more months, and we don’t expect a release until sometime in the New Year.

Is there still a huge market for such cars? We have to admit the design of the Subaru WRX and the WRX STI is looking rather stale, and we cannot see the 2015 looking any better. Cars do not need to look like a child has designed them anymore in order to make them go fast, and there are some family saloons that look pretty normal, like the M5, but will give the Subaru a hard time.

    “Is there still a huge market for such cars? We have to admit the design of the Subaru WRX and the WRX STI is looking rather stale, and we cannot see the 2015 looking any better.” Subaru’s sales for the WRX and STI have gone up almost 42 percent in the last year alone. Maybe do some research before you write garbage articles.

    I can’t wait to see the 2015 unveiled without the camo. I’ve studied the light refraction (I know… sad) in the spy photos and the camo actually does a good job hiding body lines. The fenders are pumped out more than you’d think at first glance. The front and back end have more flare than the outgoing model without the weird headgear looking bumper of the ’13 style WRX. I thought the 05-07 models were moving AWAY from the pronounced bumper, then they brought it back (facepalm).

    Where things get interesting is on the inside. I can almost guarantee the car will be lighter than the outgoing model and a bit more neutral (less understeer). They’ve been criticized for that every single year since 2002. “Breaking away” from the Impreza allows them to be more aggressive with the handling. Also, the engine will undoubtedly either be the FA16 or FA20 with the turbo mounted low. There’s talks of that being twin-scroll, which will make a few people cringe (no more rumble).

    The only bad news I’ve heard so far is that they won’t be offering the 2015 in a 5-door configuration… which is just plain stupid. Unless you want to buy a Porsche Panamera what other Turbo-charged, All-Wheel-Drive, 300+ HP, 5-dr Hatch can you buy? Subaru has that market cornered.
