Even though there’s been a new Impreza in showrooms since 2017, Subaru is yet to renew its WRX and WRX STI models which are based on the previous-generation Impreza.

It doesn’t mean Subaru is completely ignoring the cars. Both cars have received updates for 2019, with the WRX STI benefiting from an additional 5 horsepower.

The 2019 model year also sees the WRX and WRX STI receive Series.Gray special editions, which Subaru revealed on Tuesday. Just 750 will be built as a WRX and 250 as a WRX STI. You’ll recognize them by their Cool Gray Khaki exteriors with black badging.

The WRX STI Series.Gray comes with 19-inch wheels, also in black, as well as Brembo brake calipers finished in silver and with a black STI logo. Handling for the WRX STI Series.Gray is upgraded with a unique suspension featuring Bilstein dampers for the inverted-strut front suspension and double wishbone rear suspension. The car also gets Recaro seats with eight-way power adjustment for the driver’s seat. With 5 extra hp, the car’s ‘s 2.5-liter turbocharged flat-4 spits out a new total of 310 hp.
