Article by Christian A., on June 5, 2018

Subaru WRX and WRX STI fans will soon have a new special edition trim available when the 2019 model year debuts. These will be called Series.Gray and they will be available on both models. The special edition will come with a handful of appearance and performance parts inside and out, but this really isn’t considered to be new information. Sometime around the end of last month, Subaru announced the 2019 WRX and WRX STI and shared with us most of the details of the Series Gray models. What’s new for us would be some details and a number of photographs.

The Series Gray WRX was built off the WRX Premium trim that includes the Performance Package. New features include ultrasuede trimmed Recaro seats, eight-way power driver’s seat, JURID front brake pads, a moonroof delete, LED fog lights, keyless entry with push button start, and LED steering responsive headlights. The special edition will only be available with a six speed manual transmission. The WRX Series Gray comes with a price tag of $32,595.

If you are the type of person who would not settle for something common or usual, or want a more unique WRX STI, then the Series Gray may be right for you. When looking at it from the exterior, the package gets a Cool Gray Khaki paint, exclusive Crystal Black Silica badging, foldable exterior mirror, and 19 inch alloy wheels finished in black. The Brembo brakes have a silver finish with a black STI logo. As you move into the interior, you will notice black Ultrasuede with carbon black leather bolster and ultrasuede steering wheel with red stitching which are all standard. There’s Recaro seats with an eight way power driver’s seat come as standard. Of course, keyless entry with push button start is found in the WRX STI as well.

As for performance, the Series Gray WRX STI receives a few performance upgrades as well. For instance, the car’s handling has been improved with the addition of a Bilstein STI sport tuned suspension featuring Bilstein dampers for the inverted strut front suspension and double wishbone rear suspension. The special edition model will come with a price tag of $39,695.

Speaking of performance, the WRX was supposed to get a 268 horsepower 2.0 liter flat four engine. On the other hand, the 2019 WRX STI Series Gray has got a turbocharged 2.5 liter boxer engine that carries out 310 horsepower. This is an increase of five horsepower over the outgoing model. Both WRX and WRX STI Series Gray models are limited editions as well. All in all, Subaru only plans to produce 750 units of the WRX and 250 units of the WRX STIs with the Series Gray package.
