Sells as fast as it goes:
The carryover 2020 WRX is now arriving at dealers nationwide. Subaru's EyeSight driver assist system and push-button start are now standard across the board. The optional Performance Package gains Brembo brakes.
The 2019 WRX can still be found, although selection is very thin.
The WRX doesn't last long on dealer lots. Interest remains high, so don't expect any level of discounting. Your main concern should be simply finding one.
Current lease and APR offers vary by region and will remain in effect through October 31, 2019. Examples shown here are for California.
Where's the cash?
Unlike most automakers, Subaru usually doesn't offer factory cash incentives. Dealers are open to discounting most models, but the hot-selling WRX. There is, however, a loyalty bonus on leases (see below).
Leasing looks the same:
In Los Angeles, the 2019 WRX once again starts at $309 for 36 months (12,000 miles a year) with $1,963 due at signing. The effective monthly cost of this offer is $364, the lowest of the model year so far. That said, it's still not a good value in our book. We're hoping Subaru will offer a lease later this year that we can recommend.
Everywhere else in the country, payments run $10 to $20 higher, with all other terms about the same. There are no factory lease offers yet on the 2020 WRX. For now, see your dealer for a lease quote.
If you're currently leasing a Subaru model, your first payment will be complimentary, up to $500. This loyalty perk is available throughout the lineup.
Low APR holding:
Subaru continues to offer 1.9% financing for 72 months on the 2019 WRX, which has been available for most of the model year.
The initial offer on the 2020 WRX is 2.9% for 48 months, not bad for this early stage.
