2024 Subaru WRX TR Arrives, Rebranded as a Feature-Rich Top Trim

The last WRX TR was a stripped to-the-bones variant cheaper than the base WRX, but the new version is being touted as the top-trim WRX.

When Subaru announced that the current-generation WRX would not receive an STI version, many fans were upset, unsurprisingly. Now, the company is reusing an old name, and the company has gone a little upmarket with this one.

The automaker is reaching back to 2006 to resurrect the TR moniker, which last time around stood for “Tuner Ready.” Back then, it was a stripped-down model intended for customers to modify. It cost $1000 less than the standard WRX and came with unpainted mirror caps, basic seats, and a non-leather steering wheel.

The 2024 WRX TR takes a different approach. The standard brakes have been replaced by Brembo six-piston front calipers, two-piston rear calipers, larger pads and rotors, and a larger brake master cylinder. According to Subaru, the springs on the TR are stiffer than before, and the damping rates have been retuned. Subaru says that between the new suspension setup and a retuned steering rack, the TR has better body control and steering response than lower trims, while also maintaining ride quality.

Where the inside of the last TR was spartan and ready for racing buckets, the new version comes standard with Recaro buckets in front, and the driver’s seat even features eight-way power adjustments. The racing seats are finished in black and gray Ultrasuede with contrasting red stitching and the Recaro logo embossed on the seatbacks. Subaru did take one comfort away, though, removing the power moonroof in the name of weight savings.
