Subaru WRX - 2019

Hi all,

I am in market for a new car, considering a 2019 Subaru WRX.
So far, I have not been able to get anything off MSRP from the few dealers I emailed. Wanted to see, has anyone had any luck getting any discounts?
Or, if you had purchased a WRX some other year, what did you pay?

Went last friday to dealership (Subaru Willowdale) and got 900 off for a 2019 WRX (Sport version). They offered to give me the floor models (2018 STi Sport Tech and WRX Sport tech) at higher discount (close to 3.5k on STI), if i take the car in few days. Note : i got couple cars from them in past, so i may get a better deal.

^ for the mentioned MY2018 STI and WRX ... does the $3.5K incl. $1000 factory credit ?

Have they mentioned anything about bringing back the hatchback?

No, as sales of the sedan are doing very well.
That's what I was told by the sales manager here in Ottawa.

No, and it is probably never coming back. Subaru is a small company, and having 4 different models was quite a stretch (WRX sedan, WRX hatch, STI sedan, STI hatch). Sedans are also a favored body style in the US (generally speaking). A Subaru engineer said that cutting out the hatchback allowed them to spend more resources on improvements to the sedan, and that they were able to focus their efforts on one body style instead of dividing them up between two.

It sucks, but I see Subaru getting away with this because now they're the only game in town for an affordable, performance-oriented AWD turbocharged 6MT sedan. Even the market for such a vehicle has gotten smaller...Mitsubishi quit, the Focus RS is dead and gone and Mazda has forgotten how to do Mazdaspeed 6s.

Golf R is definitely a contender :)

If you manage to get a small reduction from msrp try having them throw in accessories or oil changes to sweeten the deal. Savings for you not much cost for them.
Thanks for the link. I did check that thread before, it was useful. Thought I thought I'd start a new one for 2019 specifically. Was hoping that people are able to get better discounts as WRX is nearing the redesign.
The suggestion about accessories/oil is good, thanks.

$3.5K off sounds pretty sweet, even with the 1K off manufacturer discount.
I think if I could get something close to 3K on the 2018 WRX, I'll jump the gun. Would spend the extra money on things like audio upgrades.

Isn't the Focus RS out and on sale? It does have good reviews, I'd consider it if it wasn't for the price. $60K would get me a nice M240I, which is a better money proposition, IMO.

Ford is killing all their sedan/hatchback lineup except the Mustang.

No such thing. The redesign, if it happens, will be in 2020 and it will not be a face lift. Most believe power train for the STI, suspension and other bits that were left out of the 2018 'facelift'. WRX cosmetic lifts can occur 4-8 years and since the 2018 got 6 pots, a new front valance, some interior changes, and few other goodies, a full redesign is not expected. See you in 2022.

Yeah the Golf R is a really quick car, especially with the DSG. Wait for the MK8 though.

It's dead because Ford is killing all of their cars except the Mustang in North America. I wouldn't pick one up at that price, I'd rather spend the 60 grand (or less) on the M240i. Hell, you can get $7000 off a Mustang GT right now (after taxes) and that's without haggling... a base Mustang GT with the performance package comes out to like $44k. Throw in some dealer haggling and you can probably get it for like $41k - $42k OTD.

Too short, can't fit skis, now a Golf R Alltrack would be very interesting.
