The WRX and WRX STI were introduced for the 2008 model year, then refreshed for 2011 with revised styling for the WRX and the return of the WRX STI Sedan. These Subaru performance machines receive trim and color updates for the 2012 model year.


New for 2012


Most of the changes for the 2012 WRX and WRX STI are minor. They freshen the cars' appearances and upgrade electronics.


For the exterior, the headlights of all models have a silver inner bezel color for 2012, changed from black. At the rear, the chrome satin garnish previously used on the sedan models is now body color. In addition, all WRX STI Sedan models have a new 18-inch alloy wheel design.



Inside WRX models, the trim around the center console is darker. The Vehicle Dynamics Control indicator light for all WRX and WRX STI models is redesigned and easier to read.
