2023 WRX Sedan Exterior

The exterior of the Subaru WRX makes it clear that this is no ordinary commuter sedan. There is a large scoop in the hood, and the front fascia is sharply styled with air takes in the lower bumper and a small but aggressive grille. A bar runs across the honeycomb grille and hosts the Subaru logo, while far off to the corners lie the headlights, which are LED with auto on/off function. The rear is equally angular, with curves giving a lifted look to the back end, while a pair of circular tailpipes jut out proudly from either corner. The overall effect is one of capability without sacrificing style. The base model comes equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels, while 18-inch wheels are standard on every other trim in varying color finishes. A moonroof is added on upper trims, and you can option a trunk lid spoiler. Lastly, you can add an LED-lit emblem to the grille.
