Subaru WRX/STi/Liberty GT 2003-08

Adding ‘STi’ as a descriptor seems to be the simplest way of doubling the value of a basic Subaru.

‘Subaru Technica International’ supplied the cars that became the brand’s World Rally contenders and also brought relevance to various models never intended for motor sport. Problem is when STI versions become so common that the market can see no point in paying a big premium for exclusivity, the prices crash.

Thus we see STI versions of the G3 WRX at just $20,000 and of the Liberty GT at $3000-5000 less.

| Buyer's guide: Subaru WRX & STI

People in the market for a family car with real performance can access a normal GT with the 2.5 Turbo motor at $10-12,000 or the WRX G3 at a few thousand more.

WRX 2004-06 $15,460 [18] 

WRX 2007-08 $14,535 [33]

WRX STi 2003-05 $20,860 [34] 

WRX STi 2006-08 $22,415 [18]

Liberty GT Turbo 2004-06 $10,570 [33]

Liberty GT Turbo STi 2004-08 $17,895 [22]
