2019 Subaru WRX and WRX STI Series.Gray

Limited-edition package adds new paint and extra standard features

Having just celebrated 50 years in the U.S. with a batch of limited-edition packages for eight different models at the Chicago Auto Show, Subaru unveiled two more special-edition versions of the WRX and WRX STI at the 2018 Subaru Tecnica International Boxerfest in Washington D.C.

Much like the 50th Anniversary Edition, the Series.Gray comes with a special exterior paint, a sportier interior, and extra standard equipment. Only 1,000 units of the Series.Gray cars will be produced, with 750 WRX and only 250 WRX STI models to leave the factory. Besides being produced in smaller numbers, the WRX STI also gets a revised chassis for a sportier ride. Let’s find out more about both cars in the review below.

2018 Subaru Viziv Tourer Concept

2018 Subaru Viziv Tourer Concept

Does it preview the next-generation Outback?

While it hasn’t introduced many brand-new models in recent years, Subaru was pretty busy showcasing new design features and technologies with a range of concepts under the Viziv name. The first one arrived in 2013, and since then Subaru has launched a new Viziv design each year. The latest iteration, known as the Viziv Tourer Concept, broke cover at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, and it features a five-door body layout.

Naturally, the Tourer shares many design features with previous Viziv concept cars. It also shares upcoming driver-assist technologies that we will find in production models starting 2020. But unlike some Viziv concepts, which featured hybrid powertrains, the Tourer uses a boxer engine only. The concept could preview a hatchback or wagon version of the WRX, but it could also be an early preview of the next-generation Outback.

Subaru Announces Bumped WRX Pricing for 2019 to Go with Extra Juice for the STI

This is fantastic news, considering previous rumors suggested that Subaru would kill off the manual because Eyesight isn’t compatible. (180284) Back to the real reason we’re here, Subaru has confirmed what we told you back on April 13, 2019 – the 2019 WRX STI will get a minor bump in power. It’s just five horsepower, and Subbie went to a lot to make it happen, but it’s there. It also comes with a bump to pricing across the line.

2018 Subaru Crosstrek - Driven

2018 Subaru Crosstrek - Driven

I see a lot of the Subaru Crosstrek. After spending a week behind the wheel of one, I finally understand why they’re so numerous in my area despite the fact there’s no Subaru dealer nearby.

The Crosstrek proved itself equal parts practical, efficient, and rugged during my weeklong test drive. It’s fitting that Subaru does so much advertising targeted at dog owners. The Subaru Crosstrek was as lovable as a golden retriever, as ruggedly handsome as an Alaskan malamute, and as stoic as a Weimaraner in the face of difficult conditions.

It’s Not Much but the Subaru WRX STI Will Get a Minor Bump in Power for 2019

Good News! The Next-Gen WRX Will Be Offered with a Manual Transmission

But, it will be optional

As disappointing as it is to see the manual transmission fade into the sunset as more automakers lean on its automatic counterpart, there are some automakers who are keeping the dream alive. One of these manufacturers is Subaru, which coincidentally dropped hints a month ago that it was axing the manual transmission from its models. Turns out, not every Subaru model is completely ditching the manual transmission because the fun-tactic three-pedal setup will live on through the WRX performance line.

Yeah, it really is wallpaper material

There’s just something about the current-gen WRX that just stands out among other sedans on the market. Maybe it’s the fact that it’s one of few performance sedans with true, on- and off-road capability or maybe it’s just the attractive look and sheer dependability. Either way, it’ll certainly be a nice addition to your desktop, so give your screen a fresh look with the wallpaper selections below.
