The 2024 Impreza RS gets physical heated seat switches and USB-C charging.

The 2023 WRX does not.

MK8 and all other competitors are limited in production. Civic type R just hit the lots and is limited, GR Corolla is super limited. Keep lying to yourself and looking like a buffoon every day. I’ll ask this question again : how many Subarus have you owned? Zero. Go away

I expect changes for this model year - or maybe a new trim - to fix the issues like we’ve talked about. How’s 12 hour days at the dealer going?

Seriously though, are you a teenager fanboy without a drivers license who does this in his spare time? You don’t even act like a human being. one who is fully capable of functioning.

Ok relax you 2, let's get back to the topic at hand. It's only in its second year and subaru is still being kept alive with the forester, outback, and crosstrek. Due to the supply chain crunch and a focus on introducing electrification to the lineup, they may simply be waiting on the regular refresh cycle at the moment. The money for R&D is slim and they have to spread those funds wisely. And don't forget, they are still fighting overall emissions for the brand as a whole

Well they made some very good improvements from 2004 to 2005.

Radio in 2005 was newer
Climate control knobs were newer
Steering wheel
5x100 was dropped in favor of 5x114.3
The rear quarter panel/wheel arch was also different (it's the easiest way to determine a 2004 from 2005)

Then let's not forget the Hawkeye and the nose change, aerofoil above the rear window, the rear diffuser and an updated 2nd gear so you can hit 60 in second for 2006.

Why would there be a refresh ? The car was just released. I am sure we will see the usual facelift in 2-3 years, perhaps few tweaks here and there but an "emergency facelift"....

I honestly don't think Subaru has the wiggle room Federal Govt Negotiation wise and/or money wise. I think it would more worth taking to the bank, a refresh happening right before or with the reintroduction of the STI. (Before being like 1-1.5 yrs before). 2015-2017's were the same (I think - Predominantly), then there were some improvements on the 2018 along with special editions like that Lighter Blue one that I wanted bad (Series Grey?). So... Probably a 25' or 26' Refresh is likely. 2024 refresh, that would be nice Probably will see a couple special editions no doubt.

WRX kept the 5x100 until the 2015 model.

STI did swap from 5x100 to 5x114 in 2005.

that was specific to the STI and was done to accommodate wider wheels that they got as part of the hub upgrade to go from 5x100 to 5x114.

I believe the 2006 year was when they put the 2.5l in the WRX.

actually, the 2008 vs 2009 WRX was a more drastic change than any of the changes between 2004 and 2005, and also the 2004 was really only a cosmetic update from the 2002 to get rid of the bugeye.

so 2008 was a whole new chassis for the WRX, but they kept the 2.5l motor with the td04, 2009 they put a VF52 turbo on the WRX, which took it from a 224hp motor to a 265hp motor. suspension updates to make it stiffer, the widebody fenders from the STI were now on the WRX as well.

that was a HUGE update from one year to the next that corresponded with a complete chassis update, not just a standard year to year changes.

No wide body until 2011. But yes to the rest about the 2009.

I was simply stating the tweaks, physical/mechanical done to the GD STI. And that there is nothing preventing Subaru from doing the same to the 2022 WRX. Bring on the "Times were different then BS replies."

I am very aware of the hatchback chassis change, loved the hatch design, hated the lousy seats (STI) and cheesy front dash (STI).

ah. sorry, I didn't get that you were only referencing the STI changes, it's worth pointing out that the 2004 didn't even come with a radio.

Don’t forget 2007s are the “avoid” year with the bad factory tune

I was responding to samagon. He said 2009 got the STI widebody.

The 2009 WRX and 2010 WRX were not widebody (sedan nor hatch). The 2011, which I owned, was the year they gained the STI widebody.

You and I both know this is BS. You should ask someone that works at a dealer that last question.

The Subaru WRX returns for 2023 without any significant changes. Subaru tells us they’ve added rear-seat head restraints for all three seating positions and have enlarged those same restraints to comply with safety standards that mitigate whiplash in case of an accident.

When Subaru pays Bucky Lasek to hype up a POS like the new Impreza RS, it’s pretty clear the direction of this company. Hyped up, boring appliances. Dog and Instagram approved, ready for that trip from NYC to the hiking trails upstate. Just shift that CVT into D and step on it. In 10 short seconds, you’ll be flying down i87 at 65 MPH.

Lol. So true. As someone that grew up in Orange County, this post was nostalgic.

Where is the emergency refresh? I already bought a something from a Tooner so I too can have a WRX with 400 lb-ft of TOORQE. Now all I need is the car.
