Australian pricing and specifications for the 2024 Subaru WRX range have been announced ahead of imminent showroom arrivals. Adding more equipment to most models in the range has been met with price rises of up to $1,500 for manual variants thanks to the addition of active safety like auto emergency braking and lane keeping assistance, while the Sportswagon range is now $800 more expensive thanks to a new premium sound system. But the big news for enthusiasts is the addition of the WRX Club Sport special edition, which adds new features like Recaro seats, Brembo brakes and a typically-WRX rear spoiler. Just 150 units of the Club Sport will be offered and it’s priced from $52,590 plus on-road costs.

Subaru Australia’s Managing Director, Blair Read, said: “The Club Spec name is one familiar to WRX enthusiasts with the first Club Spec offered in the late nineties and it being a well sought after special offering since then.”

“The Club Spec offers the core ingredients for a WRX special edition of 19-inch wheels, Brembo brakes, recaro seats, and STI style rear spoiler. Limited to only 150 units this is sure to be a very special limited edition.”

Based on the entry-level WRX manual sedan, the 2024 Subaru WRX Club Sport adds Recaro front seats, matte grey 19-inch alloy wheels with Bridgestone Potenza S007 tyres, six-piston Brembo front brakes and two-piston Brembo rear brakes, ventilated and drilled brake discs and unique suspension and steering tunes. There’s also a big STi-style rear wing to complete the look.

The WRX Club Sport is priced from $52,590 plus on-road costs – $5,100 more than the WRX on which it’s based – and is limited to just 150 units nationally.

Elsewhere in the 2024 Subaru WRX range is a whole host of important equipment additions for the manual variants, including auto emergency braking (AEB) with auto emergency steering, adaptive cruise control, emergency lane keep assist, lane centring functionality, lane departure prevention and warning, lane sway warning, lead vehicle start alert, brake light recognition and speed sign recognition.

All of these features are already standard on the CVT-equipped WRX range, but this is the first time – along with the BRZ sports coupe – that Subaru has offered them with a manual product.

Other changes to the 2024 Subaru WRX range include a new 10-speaker Harman Kardon sound system that’s now standard across the Sportswagon range, newly wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring, ‘Ceramic White’ paintwork replacing the former ‘Crystal White’ colour offered on the sedan and a new ‘Asteroid Grey Pearl’ colour for the Sportswagon range.
