3 Things That Define The 2019 Subaru WRX Raiu Edition

The Canadians are getting a special edition Subaru WRX. The model is called the WRX Raiu Edition, which takes its name from the Japanese word meaning “thunderstorm.” It features exclusive exterior and interior elements. Since there are only 100 units available, the model is a must-have for fans and enthusiasts.

1. It Is The First Special Edition For Canada In Years

The 2019 Subaru WRX Raiu Edition will signify the first time that Subaru created a special edition car for Canada in over 15 years. That’s a seriously long drought for a market as big as Canada but alas, the Japanese company has decided to give the North more focus.

The WRX Raiu Edition is based on the WRX sedan but without the STI designation. To be clear, the special edition car will have the same power as the other WRX models. It is going to be powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged boxer-four engine. It makes 268 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The engine is paired with a six-speed manual transmission.

2. It Offers Exclusive Features

The car is dressed in a Cool Grey Khaki paint finish. That color is exclusive to the WRX Raiu Edition, so you know your special edition car is special simply because of its color. That will be contrasted with blacked-out door mirrors, a shark-fin antenna, and a lot of badging showcasing the special edition status of the car.

It will have a lot of STI components such as the ground-effect aerodynamic components and the short-throw shifter in the cabin.

3. It Is Similar To The Subaru WRX Series.Gray

The WRX Raiu Edition will only be released in Canada but that should not be the cause of envy of American buyers. The car is very similar to the WRX Series.Gray Edition that the automaker launched in America a few months ago. Each model of the 100 units will cost CAD$40,995 or about $31,000 in USD.
