Comfy Changes in the Subaru WRX

Subaru WRX
It should be noted that Subaru’s latest WRX and WRX STI performance sedans have only been on sale for about a year. However, the automaker is already giving the fast four-doors some upgrades. The changes all center around the WRX and WRX STI’s infotainment and safety rosters, with every model now getting Subaru’s latest Starlink infotainment system with a 6.2-inch touch screen, a backup camera, and Bluetooth.

Beyond the starry Starlink addition, as well as the newly available EyeSight safety suite (adaptive cruise control, automatic braking, blind-spot detection, lane-change assist, and rear cross-traffic alert) on CVT-equipped WRX Limited models, not much else has changed. The 2015 WRX STI Launch Edition has been dropped because, well, the car has launched. The WRX can still be had in base, six-speed-manual-only trim, Premium spec (manual or CVT), or Limited spec (also with either transmission). The WRX STI can now be had only in base and Limited guises, and just as before, a six-speed manual is the only transmission choice.
