The wait is over for cheap-speed buyers anxiously looking forward to Subaru's next-generation performance-oriented Impreza. An automatic transmission and sedan-only body styles may make brand loyalists' cringe, but the pricing remains familiar for the WRX and WRX STI scheduled to hit dealerships this spring.
Pricing only increases $300 for a 268-horsepower 2015 WRX base model with a six-speed manual, which starts at $27,090, including a $795 destination charge. The 2015 WRX features a larger interior, larger front brakes, stiffer chassis, standard backup camera and improved fuel economy over the previous WRX. Head over to the WRX STI and pricing for the more-potent 305-hp sedan is unchanged for 2015, starting at $35,290.
