Subaru Celebrates 50th Anniversary With Limited Edition Vehicles In Chicago

It’s been 50 years since Subaru of America first started its operations here, and to celebrate the event, the automaker has launched limited edition models of some cars.

Presented during the 2018 Chicago Auto Show, these include the Crosstrek, Forester, Impreza, Legacy, and Outback, limited to 1,050 units each, and the BRZ, WRX, and STI, with a combined total of 1,050.

Already on sale at the brand’s dealers nationwide, all anniversary models are based on their respective range-topping trim level. They also get a new exclusive color, called Heritage Blue, special exterior and interior accents, and unique ‘SOA 50th Anniversary’ emblem.

Satin chrome trim on the outside, along with different alloy wheels on all vehicles except for the BRZ, and side mirror casings finished in Satin Chrome (except for BRZ, WRX, and STI), further define their special character.

The cabin of each of the eight special models features the ’50th Anniversary’ logo embroidered on the front seats and floor mats, black upholstery with contrasting silver stitching, and silver seatbelts.

The Subaru BRZ 50th Anniversary is the most affordable of the range. It starts from $30,800, including the destination and delivery charges, whereas the WRX STI is found at the opposite end of the list, with a starting price of $42,055.
