Pure Performance Pedigree

Consistent across the Subaru WRX STI range is the famous Subaru Boxer engine that has been designed to sit lower and flatter in the engine bay than upright engines. Due to this unique design it delivers less noise and vibration to the cabin, while the lowered centre of gravity improves stability, cornering and traction with the road. Coupled with the Subaru WRX STI’s symmetrical drivetrain, this configuration delivers superior handling confidence, better balance, smoothness and ultimately, outstanding driver enjoyment.

The intelligent drive systems incorporated into the Subaru WRX STI include Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) which seamlessly translates commands from the driver’s right foot to automatically select the optimum throttle position for effortless performance. The ETC system also considers the environment, optimising emissions and fuel economy.
