2021 Subaru WRX Sedan Trims & Specs

There are three models in the 2021 range: base, Premium, and Limited. The base model uses the same 2.0-liter turbocharged flat-four as the rest of the range. It provides 268 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. The base is only available with a six-speed manual transmission. Standard equipment at this level includes 17-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, brake assist, a cloth interior, and a six-way manually-adjustable driver's seat. It also comes with climate control, a 6.5-inch color touchscreen infotainment interface, and a six-speaker sound system.

The mid-spec Premium adds the new keyless entry with a push-button start system, which is the only new feature for 2021. It also comes with 18-inch alloy wheels, fog lights, auto headlights, and a seven-inch infotainment display. The top-spec Limited adds a decent amount of comfort and safety features. It comes with a full leather interior, a ten-way power-adjustable driver's seat, and LED lights that respond to steering input.

Add the CVT transmission to the Premium or Limited for an additional $1,900, and you'll also get Subaru's EyeSight safety systems, including adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning, and automatic emergency braking.

What's the Price of the 2021 Subaru WRX Sedan?

The price of the Subaru WRX is indicative of its strong value for money. The base WRX has an MSRP of $27,495. There isn't a lot you can add to the vehicle, so that's basically what it costs. The Premium retails for $30,045, while the WRX Limited has an MSRP of $32,095. If you want the CVT transmission, it adds another $1,900 to the price of both the Premium and Limited. These prices do not include the $925 destination and delivery charge.

Be wary of the options, however. If you include a CVT gearbox, navigation, 18-inch STI alloy wheels, and an STI performance exhaust, the price quickly climbs to over $40,000. That's within spitting distance of the top-spec STI, not to mention a few other brilliant performance cars like the Honda Civic Type R.

Additional Packages

There are no packages available for the base model but rather a host of standalone features that allow you to spruce up the interior and sound system. If you'd like the WRX to be a bit more vocal, we recommend the $1,171 STI performance exhaust system. You can also add the previously-mentioned STI exhaust system and 18-inch STI wheels for an additional $1,785. The Limited grants you access to a package that's aimed at luxury and safety-minded customers. On the CVT model, it retails for $2,400 and adds navigation, auto high beams, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and a Harmon Kardon sound system.

What 2021 Subaru WRX Sedan Model Should I Buy?

The full-fat STI is all about performance at the expense of everything else. The WRX is a more balanced car worth keeping in mind when you choose what trim level you want. The base model with its manual box is appealing, but you don't get a lot in terms of comfort and amenities. For that reason, we'd go for the mid-spec Premium and its new keyless entry and push-button start system, among other features. We'd go with a manual, too. Not only is it more fun, but it's slightly more frugal as well. You do lose out on the advanced safety kit, but just pay attention when you drive.
