The cabin of the new Subaru WRX STi.

In a first for the model, the rear wing is actually now a no-cost delete option – meaning if you don’t want it Subaru is happy to deliver a WRX STI to you without it!

Under the bonnet is a turbocharged 2.5-litre Horizontally-Opposed Boxer engine that produces 221kW and 407Nm, while the use of high tensile steel and a stiffer suspension delivers handling and safety benefits according to Subaru.

And Subaru say comfort levels are up in the cabin thanks to new soft-touch high-quality surfaces.

Nick Senior, Subaru Australia Managing Director, says the new WRX STI is the best yet.

“The new generation WRX STI is a genuine high performance sports sedan that perfectly balances exhilarating power with pure control.

“It’s the pinnacle of our performance range, both powerful and refined in a complete package – and it’s going to thrill.”
