Mildly updated 2017 Subaru WRX and WRX STI get priced in the US image

With prices starting from 26,695 dollars, the 2017 performance models will arrive at Subaru dealers this summer.

Subaru have brought some mild updates to its WRX and WRX STI models, which will hit the showrooms in a couple of months from now. Among those few changes, you will find some new tricot headliners, standard automatic headlights for the base WRX STI, previously offered only on higher trim versions, and standard auto up/down function on driver’s and front passenger’s windows with anti-pinch protection.

The 2017 Subaru WRX now offers the EyeSight Driver Assist safety feature, a system that includes Adaptive Cruise Control, Pre-Collision Braking and Lane Departure warning, and uses Subaru-developed stereo camera technology to see the road ahead. On the Limited trim, EyeSight also comes with Reverse Auto Braking, Navigation and Blind Spot Detection, Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

The 2017 WRX starts from 26,695 dollars (without destination and delivery charges), just 100 dollars more over the previous model, and boosts 268-horsepower from the 2.0-liter direct injection turbo boxer engine, standard Symmetrical All Wheel Drive and a 6-speed manual transmission. An optional performance automatic transmission is also available, namely the Sport Lineartronic one with manual mode.

The high-powered STI model can be grabbed for 35,195 dollars (without destination and delivery charges), alongside with the 305-horsepower turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, matted exclusively with a specially reinforced 6-speed manual transmission. The handling part is assisted by the Multi-Mode Driver Controlled Center Differential, Active Torque Vectoring and by a Brembo brake system with super sport ABS.
