EXCLUSIVE: Here Are the Variants, Specs, Prices of the 2018 Subaru WRX and WRX STI


After saying that the first batch of their Civic Type R thunder-stealing 2018 WRX and WRX STI would arrive before the end of August, Motor Image Pilipinas has announced that they have arrived. Slated for a public debut at the Subaru Festival next week, we got our hands at the exact variants, specs, and prices for these rally-bred performance sedans.

Before diving into the specs themselves, we have to point out our source got the 2018 pricing exactly right. While other websites quickly said that the 2018 WRX and WRX STI’s prices would be maintained across the board, that’s not the case. In fact, the prices have gone up by P 20,000 to reflect the added equipment and features.

This means the pricing is as follows:
  • 2018 Subaru WRX M/T – P 1,838,000
  • 2018 Subaru WRX CVT – P 1,908,000
  • 2018 Subaru WRX STI M/T (w/ Wing) – P 2,518,000
  • 2018 Subaru WRX STI M/T Premium – P 2,618,000
Now that we got that out of the way, you can either read a more detailed write-up here or scroll down for the specifications of these models below.

You can see the 2018 WRX and WRX STI along with the all-new Subaru XV at the Subaru Festival slated on September 7-10 at the Bonifacio Global City (it coincides with the 2017 Subaru Palm Challenge).
