R E X ’S BETTER V ISION

THE fastest Subarus on the market are now slightly safer with the introduction of some crashavoidance technologies to the WRX and STI Premium models.

Blind spot warning and auto high-beam headline the changes, while there’s now a camera in the passenger exterior mirror that gives better side vision when reversing – handy to avoid scuffing the 18-inch alloys.

The unchanged regular WRX is also unchanged on the price front, while the WRX Premium increases by $900 and the STi Premium by $400. Entry to the base STi has come down $500.

As for the Japanese brand’s EyeSight technology – which uses twin cameras to look for other vehicles and instigate auto braking – it’s not yet available on the WRX or STi.
