Exxy Rexy! 2023 Subaru WRX pricing goes up with no updates or extra features for Volkswagen Golf GTI, Hyundai i30 N rival - but by how much?

The Subaru WRX is the brand’s highest level performance model, with no STI variant in sight any time soon.

Subaru has increased the price of its small sedan and wagon, the WRX, for the 2023 model year, citing increased costs to explain the changes.

Prices are up across the board by $1000, meaning the entry point to a Subaru WRX is now $45,990 before on-road costs for a manual entry-level sedan.

Stepping up from variant to another comes at about $2000 intervals, with the cheapest wagon WRX the ‘Sport Sportswagon’ at $50,990, $1000 more than the sedan equivalent.

The top-spec tS sedan comes in at $57,990, or another $1000 for the Sportswagon version. 

“Continued increase in costs associated with production and logistics has resulted in a price adjustment for the MY23 Subaru WRX range,” a Subaru Australia spokesperson told CarsGuide.

“There are no specification changes between MY22 and MY23 Subaru WRX.”

All versions of the WRX are still powered by a turbocharged 2.4-litre four-cylinder flat-four engine, with 202kW and 350Nm. A six-speed manual transmission or a CVT gearbox are available on base and RS models, while the rest of the range is CVT only.
