2019 Subaru WRX

No major changes are coming in regards to exterior appearance. Nevertheless, Subaru will provide new WRX and WRX STI Series.Gray special editions that will can be found in Cool Gray Khaki with unique badging and 18-inch wheels with a black finish.

The base 2019 Subaru WRX now comes standard with the company’s 6.5-inch Starlink touchscreen infotainment system, which has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support. In 2015, the base WRX had a 6.2-inch touchscreen without those features. Going up the trim lineup, the WRX Premium and Limited continue to use a 7.0-inch touchscreen. The WRX had actually not previously provided CarPlay and Android Auto, even though other newer Subarus like the Crosstrek and Impreza had actually added it.

Another change for this year’s WRX is that the EyeSight active safety system is now basic on the Premium and Limited models when they’re geared up with a constantly variable transmission; previously it was a paid choice on the Limited trim. The EyeSight suite integrates adaptive cruise control, precollision caution and braking and lane-keep assist. Essentially a variation of the Premium grade, Series. Gray WRX also gets Recaro seats with ultrasuede, LED headlights, push-button start and more. Subaru will build just 750 WRXs and 250 STIs in this form.

As had actually been reported, for the 2019 WRX STI, Subaru took lessons gained from the Type RA and used them as standard. The turbocharged 2.5-liter flat-four engine gets tougher pistons, a new consumption and exhaust and a reprogrammed computer to boost output from 305 to 310 horsepower. The six-speed handbook transmission’s third equipment ratio has actually also been fine-tuned to improve acceleration– again, much like in the Type RA.

Security should be stronger selling point with Subaru EyeSight standard on Premium and higher trims with a CVT transmission. Nevertheless, this variation only includes vehicle hold, an assist display and an electronic parking brake.
