Some additional noteworthy observations as they relate to insurance cost on a Subaru WRX include:
- Prepare for sticker shock for high risk insurance. For a 30-year-old driver, being required to buy a high-risk insurance policy could trigger a rate increase of $2,098 or more per year.
- Lots of policy discounts equals cheaper WRX insurance. Discounts may be available if the insured drivers drive low annual mileage, are loyal customers, are senior citizens, insure their home and car with the same company, or many other policy discounts which could save the average driver as much as $296 per year.
- Plan on paying a lot to insure a teen driver. Average rates for full coverage WRX insurance costs $6,234 per year for a 16-year-old driver, $5,812 per year for a 17-year-old driver, and $5,422 per year for a 18-year-old driver.
- Increase physical damage deductibles to save money. Increasing deductibles from $500 to $1,000 could save around $262 per year for a 40-year-old driver and $504 per year for a 20-year-old driver.
- Low physical damage deductibles may be wasting money. Decreasing deductibles from $500 to $250 could cost an additional $270 per year for a 40-year-old driver and $530 per year for a 20-year-old driver.
- Cheaper rates come with better credit scores. In states that have statutes allowing credit information to be used as a price factor, having a credit score above 800 may see savings of $272 per year when compared to a rating of 670-739. Conversely, a less-than-perfect credit score could cost around $316 more per year.

Insuring a 2015 Subaru WRX instead of 2022 model may save $530 or more on insurance cost each year. Even opting for a newer 2019 model could save around $170.

|Model Year||Driver Age 20||Age 30||Age 40||Age 50||Age 60|
Eventually, as the vehicle gets older it will probably be a good financial move to eliminate physical damage coverage from an insurance policy. As a vehicle depreciates, the expense of physical damage coverage is more than the benefits.
Removing full coverage on an older Subaru WRX could possibly save $832 a year, depending on the policy deductibles and the age of the driver.
