    You realize that inflation is not the reason behind the car's price going up, right? No car manufacturer adjusts for annual inflation. Component price increases due to tariffs and/or competing pressures from other raw material buyers forcing sourcing from less economical sources yes, but not inflation.

    But by all means, please explain to us the concept of inflation with your dual MBA/MS from Wharton. I look forward to my education.

    same here. I wasnt sold on the R becuase a sti and focus rs are a second faster 0-60. Im waiting for the new FA engine to be a 2.5 sti model and ill be buying one of those for the same price if not cheaper than a R

    There's an FA24 for the STI on the horizon. Unfortunately, with Subaru, there's no way to know if that horizon is next year or 5 years from now.

    Well, I’m glad I got my 2018 for $34.9K base price (there was a couple hundred added on for accessory installation) seeing as how the price has creeped up a bit.

    It’s definitely good for those that already have an R. While I don’t currently see myself ever selling, you never know. And if Honda drops the R completely for the next gen, our depreciation could flatten even further.

    If you figure the price change from MY'18 to MY'19 ('18 was $35,595 and new MSRP is $37,230), it's a 4.59% increase, which is a lot more than inflation.

    CPI was only 1.8% from June '18 to June '19, and the "New Vehicle" portion of CPI was only 0.9%. So, the MSRP is definitely outstripping inflation, but you could probably argue that the car was priced too low initially. Good for those of us who already own one (I'm very glad I bought at the old MSRP 2 weeks ago).

    This is not the 2020 model year right (as in 2020 they just raised the price and that’s it)? Just an update for new 2019’s that show up?

    it's a mid year price bump for 2019s. Probably will be another bump for 2020s like most cars.
