2016 model year changes
Following a 2015 redesign, Subaru has focused changes to the 2016 WRX and WRX STi strictly on interior convenience and safety. A new 6.2-inch Starlink multimedia touchscreen infotainment system is now standard on all trim levels, though a 7-inch system is available on select models. EyeSight Driver Assist -- which is integrated with adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking, and lane departure warning -- is now available on WRXs equipped with the Sport Lineartronic continuously variable transmission. Meanwhile, blind spot detection, lane change assist, and rear cross traffic alert are now available on certain trims.

Special features for 2016
The Subaru WRX and STi compete against a variety of machinery across several segments. The Subarus are fast and handle very well, with the STi being in direct competition with sports cars such as the Nissan 370Z. However, they offer a degree of practicality that puts them up against many compact, similarly priced European cars like the MINI Cooper and BMW 2-series. The WRX starts at just over $26,500, while the more powerful STi has a base price just under $34,500.
