2017 Subaru WRX STI Updated With New Safety Features, Priced From $35,195

Subaru USA announced the pricing of the 2017 WRX and WRX STI models, along with the small revisions in their equipment levels.

The biggest difference for the MY2017 is the addition of the Blind Spot Detection and Rear Cross Traffic Alert features.

The 2017 WRX is still powered by the turbocharged 268hp 2.0-litre flat-four with direct injection and will be available in the same three trim levels –standard, Premium and Limited. Prices start at an MSRP of $26,695 which represents a $100 hike over the previous model.

Subaru’s EyeSight Driver Assist Technology is also offered in the WRX, integrated with features like Adaptive Cruise Control, Pre-Collision Braking and Lane Departure warning.

The 305hp STI versions continue to offer exclusive performance features including Active Torque Vectoring, Multi-Mode Vehicle Dynamics Control and a Brembo brake system, starting at an MSRP of $35,195.

And let’s not forget the company’s Starlink infotainment systems which are offered with 6.2-inch displays as standard and a bigger 7.0-inch screen featuring multi-touch gesture controls as an option.

    I’m glad they ditched the pink and went red for the STI script and trim.

  • Six_Tymes

    i guess there will never be a hatch version again? maybe a sti imprezza next? i hope

    • Aozora

      there is a version of WRX wagon elsewhere, but subaru won’t bring it over. because it’s a “wagon” .

      • Six_Tymes

        cool, never saw that until now. hatch or that wagon, really want one. next year i might be able to afford that price range. keyword might

      Subaru unveiled the 2017 sedan and hatchback a few weeks or so ago…..so there is a possibility again now

  • xDRAN0x

    ugh @ that DRL.

  • 2Beaucoup2Beaucoup!!

    $40 thousand for a Japanese car (that isn’t a luxury marque)?!! Would rather invest that money in a German-engineered sports car.

    • MrPC

      But which $40,000 German sports car will out-perform the STI? Maybe a Golf R?

    • Raider4Life

      There is nothing German that will compete with the STI when it comes to performance , Quality and most important RE SALE VALUE. After 3 years, German cars are half price. The STI is 75% of original value after 36 months.

  • Raider4Life

    All I have heard is that the hatchback is coming in 2018 for the STI with the new engine.
    My 2016 STI lease will up then and I will all over the 2019 model.
