The power output might be the same, but nearly everything else is different, even if only slightly.
No matter the model, the 2018 Subaru WRX and WRX STI feature an updated front fascia.
Higher-end WRX models, as well as the STI, sport LED headlights that move in conjunction with the steering wheel.
The interior promises nicer materials, redesigned door grips and a trunk that opens a bit faster than before.
The multi-function display is larger now too, measuring 5.9 inches.
The WRX comes with an optional Performance Package that adds eight-way power Recaro seats, red brake calipers, upgraded brake pads and a deleted moonroof.
WRX output is still pegged at 268 horsepower, which comes from a 2.0-liter flat-four engine.
The STI's output remains the same, as well, with its 2.5-liter H4 putting out 305 horsepower.
The STI features beefier Brembo brakes, a new electronic limited-slip center differential and new 19-inch wheels.
Both the 2018 WRX and STI go on sale this coming spring. Pricing has not yet been announced.
