Below is all the info.

For 2021, the WRX adds Keyless Access with Push-Button Start on the Premium model (the system was already standard on the WRX Limited). With its 268-hp, 2.0-liter direct-injection turbocharged BOXER engine, Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and Active Torque Vectoring, the WRX remains a performance and value standout among sport compacts. The WRX comes standard with a 6-speed manual transmission and offers an optional performance
automatic transmission, the Sport Lineartronic® CVT (continuously variable transmission) with manual shift modes.

The base WRX is well equipped with standard summer performance tires; remote keyless entry; automatic climate control; Incline Start Assist; 5.9-in. multi-function LCD; Multi-Mode Vehicle Dynamics Control; aluminum alloy pedal covers (including driver’s foot rest); dual USB ports; rear vision camera; and power door locks, side mirrors, and windows. For greater versatility, the WRX features roof rack mounting brackets.

The standard SUBARU STARLINK™ 6.5-inch Multimedia system features a 6.5-inch high-resolution touchscreen; smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay™, Android™ Auto and Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity and audio streaming; AM/FM stereo; single-disc CD player, and SiriusXM® All Access Radio and Travel Link® (subscriptions required).

Priced from $30,045, the WRX Premium is designed to enrich the performance-driving experience, adding 18-inch alloy wheels in a dark gray finish; All-Weather Package that includes heated front seats and windshield wiper de-icer; fog lights; power moonroof; Welcome Lighting, and headlight auto on/off linked with windshield wiper operation. The Premium also features the SUBARU STARLINK™ 7-inch Multimedia Plus system which adds a 7-inch high-resolution touchscreen and voice activated controls for phone.

Both the 2021 WRX Premium and Limited with the optional Sport Lineartronic CVT feature SI-DRIVE and Subaru EyeSight Driver Assist Technology. SI-DRIVE is a powertrain performance management system that allows the driver to tailor the vehicle’s driving characteristics by choosing from among three modes – Intelligent, Sport and Sport Sharp – using a switch on the steering wheel.

The award-winning Subaru EyeSight Driver Assist Technology includes Pre-Collision Brake Assist, Pre-Collision Throttle Management, Lane Departure and Sway Warning, Lead Vehicle Start Alert (vehicle in front), Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keep Assist and Lane Departure Prevention.

The WRX Limited trim builds on the Premium trim’s content, adding a 10-way power driver’s seat with power lumbar adjustment, Steering Responsive LED headlights (low and high beam) and LED fog lights. Pricing on the WRX Limited starts at $32,095.

The WRX Limited offers an option package for $2,100 that adds the STARLINK 7-inch Multimedia Navigation system that includes the Harman Kardon® speaker system and also adds Blind-Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert.
