Subaru has just released pricing for its revised 2011 Impreza WRX and STI lineup and the good news here is that the price-tag for the newly introduced STI four-door sedan with its signature trunk wing is $1,000 less than the 2010 five-door hatchback model at $33,995.
The STI sedan is also offered in a Limited trim level with a starting price of $37,345 that includes leather-trimmed upholstery, 18-inch BBS alloy wheels, power moonroof and fog lights. The Impreza WRX STI Limited 5-door starts at $35,995, but comes only with the 18-inch BBS alloy wheels.
The Impreza WRX STI models are powered by a 2.5 liter, turbocharged and intercooled Subaru Boxer engine cranking out 305 horsepower. For the 2011MY, Subaru engineers added new suspension bushings, larger front/rear stabilizer bars, and stiffer front/rear coil springs to provide tighter handling, less body roll and improved steering feel.
The new widebody 2011 Impreza WRX sedan and hatchback are priced the same in all trim levels with the base models starting at $25,495. That's $500 more than the outgoing models.
The Premium edition starts at $27,995 and adds the All-Weather Package, power moonroof, and fog lights, while the Limited is available from $28,995, adding HID headlights and leather-trimmed upholstery.
For the 2011 model year, the WRX models adopt the styling lines of the STI with beefier bumpers, wide front fenders and quarter panels, and new gunmetal gray alloy wheels shod in wider summer-performance tires, plus a rear chrome satin finish and quad tailpipe outlets for the sedan.
Both the four-door sedan and 5-door hatchback versions of the 2011 WRX are powered by a 265-hp 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder boxer engine.
In addition to these changes, all 2011 WRX and WRX STI models get a new mesh-type grill along with an upgraded audio system that includes standard Bluetooth hands-free calling and audio streaming, iPod control capability, an auxiliary input jack, USB port, and XM/Sirius capability with a roof mounted antenna.
Don't forget that the destination and delivery charge for all 2011 Subaru models is $725 or $875 if you live in Alaska.
