2023 Subaru WRX Redesign

For decades, the WRX nameplate has stood for a powerful blend of motorsports-bred performance and daily driving comfort in one special package. Everything you love about the Subaru WRX is being taken further, and from sculpted body designs to new interior benefits, there’s something for everyone to get excited about in the new 2023 Subaru WRX.

Long-time fans will know the story behind the 2023 Subaru WRX. In the early 1990s, the Subaru brand needed a powerful competitor for the World Rally Championship (WRC). The Subaru Legacy had put up a tough fight, but heavily modifying the beloved Impreza created a truly fierce rally car. They had to sell this rally-optimized Impreza to the public as per WRC rules. As a result, the WRX and WRX STI were born and scored win after win in the WRC and enthusiasts' hearts.

For the 2015 model year, the WRX nameplate shifted from a high-performance Impreza model to a standalone performance car built from the ground up with practical thrills in mind. Now, the 2023 Subaru WRX will introduce a second generation of this pure-bred WRX model, calling upon the brand's illustrious WRC history with all-new designs.

It's now based on the Subaru Global Platform. The benefits of this include a significant increase in torsional rigidity for sharper handling and a cabin more isolated from road noise. But the exterior is just as exciting. Flared fenders, an aggressive grille, and a sleeker, more powerful stance than ever before all resemble true race-duty WRC cars.

The 2023 Subaru WRX colors offer a range of flattering options, including Ice Silver Metallic, Ignition Red, and Solar Orange Pearl. The iconic World Rally Blue paint color returns as well.
