Subaru has stirred excitement among fans with the announcement of the 2024 WRX TR, reviving the iconic TR moniker from 2006. In contrast to its predecessor, which stood for “Tuner Ready” and was a stripped-down model designed for customization, the 2024 WRX TR takes a decidedly upmarket approach.
The 2024 Subaru WRX TR
One of the standout features of the new WRX TR is its enhanced braking system, with Brembo six-piston front calipers, two-piston rear calipers, larger pads, rotors, and a bigger brake master cylinder. Subaru has also made significant improvements to the suspension, with stiffer springs and retuned damping rates. These enhancements result in superior body control and steering response while preserving ride comfort.
Inside the cabin, the 2024 WRX TR offers a departure from the previous TR’s Spartan interior. It now comes standard with Recaro bucket seats in the front, complete with eight-way power adjustments for the driver’s seat. These racing-inspired seats feature black and gray Ultrasuede upholstery with striking red stitching and the Recaro logo embossed on the seatbacks. However, Subaru has made one weight-saving change by removing the power moonroof.
Under the hood, the WRX TR retains the potent 2.4-liter turbocharged flat-four engine found in other trims, producing 271 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Notably, the WRX TR comes exclusively with manual transmissions, catering to driving enthusiasts. The vehicle also boasts exclusive 19-inch multi-spoke wheels with a satin gray finish, shod with 245/35 R19 Bridgestone Potenza S007 tires for exceptional grip. Additionally, Subaru has integrated its EyeSight driver-assist technology into the WRX TR.
While pricing details for the WRX TR are yet to be disclosed, it is anticipated to fall in the range of $48,000, positioning it slightly above the current GT trim. Enthusiasts can look forward to the WRX TR arriving at dealerships in the first quarter of 2024.
The 2024 Subaru WRX TR promises a blend of performance, style, and comfort, marking a redefined chapter in the iconic TR legacy. Stay tuned for more updates as Subaru prepares to launch this exciting addition to its lineup.
