Subaru WRX 2023 Version: What You Can Expect

A source mentioned that this car will introduce itself as a fully-upgraded model from its 2022 version. This doesn’t mean that there will be a lot you will expect, but instead, you will see that every aspect of this car will undergo a certain change, despite it being a minor improvement.

Therefore, the change you will see from a 2023 Subaru WRX will include the change in its interior, engine aspects, and of course, its exterior look.

It is also said that the car offers a carryover look from what you can see in the current version. On its front face, you can see that it already offers an aggressive look with a hexagonal grille and angular headlights. There is also a chiseled bumper to improve the look. These are also predicted to exist in the upcoming release of Subaru WRX.

The sedan will remain a four-door sedan that also has a hood scoop, sized massive, placed on its front bumper. This can be dismissed in the upcoming release, but nothing is clear still.

Aside from the aggressive look on its front façade, there are also big fenders, and great body cladding you should expect in this sedan. These features say much about the sedan’s history in rallying back then. The STI trim should offer a more aggressive look and body kit, while also carrying along with light-weighted wheels, also a big-sized rear spoiler.

What About the Inside?

As you open the door and peek inside, you can say that there is nothing much differentiating from the current model of WRX. However, that doesn’t mean you will see a full package of boredom inside this car.

Instead, you will see that this car’s interior has great upholstery on its seats to offer you. Not only you should keep this in mind, but you can also see its impressive dashboard with a minimalist look as it has only a few buttons to find. The gauge isn’t that large, though. However, the entertainment and navigation system that’s controllable through the vertically attached touchscreen panel is something to appreciate for its big size.

The size of this navigation and entertainment touchscreen panel is expected to stay at what it is now, which is 11.6 inches for its diagonal length.

If you wonder what kind of connectivity will exist in the 2023 Subaru WRX, then expect nothing but a complete brigade of Bluetooth, USB, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and satellite radio. To bring the cherry on top of the cake, you can get an 11-speaker audio system by Harman Kardon. To give you the bottom line, all details (tech aspect) for the upcoming Subaru WRX will remain the same as what you will see in the current model.
