WRX body cladding and bumper a lot less obnoxious with darker colors.

Sure wish I could get Si or Civic Sport HB with manual transmission in that gray.

The base WRX will have two small screens like the one in the base Legacy which I prefer to the huge screen in higher cost models. Definitely want to test drive one.

I have a feeling that this gen WRX is going to continue to have abysmal fuel efficiency. If you absolutely HAD to have AWD, then I'd consider this over the new Si. I still love my 2019 Si too much to even think about a new car lol.

It does look better in black or gray paint. Definite tuning potential as the new 2.4 engine is reportedly 12 psi peak boost, compared to 20 psi in the 2.0. Those figures are not from Subaru, but does make sense given the similar HP numbers, despite the larger displacement of the new engine.
