2011 Subaru Impreza WRX, STI: Priced to Impress
Once again emphasizing that high performance doesn’t necessarily require a high sticker price, Subaru has announced that the starting MSRP for the 2011 Impreza WRX lineup will see a mere $500 bump for the new model year, while drivers will be able to get into a 2011 Impreza WRX STI for a sticker price that’s a full $1,000 lower than that of the 2010 models.
Wearing aggressive new body work—including new front and rear bumpers along with wider fenders and quarter panels—the exhilarating Subaru Impreza WRX has a base sticker price of $25,495 for both the four- and the five-door models. Other upgrades for the 2011 model year include an improved sound system that now features six speakers, steering-wheel-mounted audio controls and new alloy wheels wrapped in wider summer-performance tires. WRX sedans also get chrome satin accents and quad tailpipe outlets.
With an MSRP of $27,995, the WRX Premium is enhanced with a Subaru all-weather package, power moonroof and fog lights, with the sedan adding a rear trunk spoiler. The range-topping WRX Limited starts at $28,995 and adds features like high-intensity discharge headlights and leather interior accents. These MSRPs apply to both body styles, and both the Premium and Limited trims offer a GPS nav system with a seven-inch touchscreen.
The 305-hp Subaru Impreza WRX STI lineup, boasting an enhanced suspension setup for the new model year, increases the performance ante significantly; the MSRPs, not so much. The STI sedan returns for 2011 with a price of $33,995—the car’s hallmark rear wing included. The STI Limited five-door, with 18-inch BBS alloy wheels, opens at $35,995, and the new STI Limited sedan, shod with the same wheel/tire combo, adds a power moonroof and fog lights for $37,345.
All 2011 STI models come standard with an enhanced audio system and the Subaru all-weather package, and the automaker’s navigation system is an $1,800 option in all STI trim levels.
And remember, also standard on the WRX and STI—and all other Subaru models—is the automaker’s symmetrical all-wheel-drive system for an optimum combination of traction and handling.
The 2011 Impreza WRX and STI lineups will arrive in local Subaru dealerships this September.
