Subaru WRX, BRZ Get Updates and Price Bumps For 2020 Model

2020 Subaru WRX (2)

The Subaru WRX and BRZ, the brand’s two performance models, got significant updates and price bumps for the 2020 model year.

The 2020 Subaru WRX now has the EyeSight safety suite as standard on models that are equipped with the CVT. Pricing for the base WRX will now start at $28,395, up by $315 from last year’s model. That comes with the standard six-speed manual transmission.

If you want the CVT, you need to get the Premium trim that’s priced at $32,595. If you want more aesthetic and aggressive appeal, buyers can get the Performance package (exclusive to the Premium trim with the six-speed manual) that now has Brembo brakes on all four corners and Recaro-branded eight-way power-adjustable sport seats.

There’s only one engine available: a 268-horsepower 2.0-liter turbo-four unit.

The Subaru WRX STI is the more powerful variant. It has a keyless entry and start, redesigned engine bay cooling ducts in the front bumper, and 19-inch alloy wheels in dark gray. The price for the base STI trim starts at $37,895 and $42,595 for the WRX STI Limited. The latter gets a Harman Kardon audio system, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, Recaro front seats, and embedded navigation.

The only engine available for the WRX STI is a 2.5-liter turbo-four that makes 310 horsepower. This is paired to a six-speed manual transmission.

Meanwhile, the Subaru BRZ starts at $29,745. For the 2020 model year, there will be no more Premium trim. The Limited will be the base model instead and it comes standard with Starlink infotainment system with a 7.0-inch touchscreen, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, embedded navigation, heated front seats, two USB ports, and full LED headlights.

You can choose the six-speed automatic transmission for an additional of $1,100. Buyers can still opt for the Performance package to the BRZ six-speed manual, which brings Sachs Performance shock absorbers, dark gray 17-inch alloy wheels, and Brembo brakes in all four corners for $1,195.
