WRX STI FEATURES
Discover the engineering, safety and technology highlights that make WRX STI a true Subaru.
Permanent Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (SAWD) delivers power to all four wheels at all times ensuring enhanced control of WRX STI on or off-road - even in poor conditions. The entire drive system, from the Boxer engine to the rear differential, is mounted in a straight, symmetrical line, delivering stability and balance.
The WRX STI’s SUBARU Boxer engine has a longitudinally-mounted horizontally-opposed configuration. The pistons are placed 180 degrees apart allowing a lower, flatter engine profile. This gives the powerplant - and therefore the whole car - a lower centre of gravity. This more balanced weight distribution gives the WRX STI exceptional handling and poise.
WRX STI DRIVABILITY
SI-DRIVE (SUBARU Intelligent Drive) lets you select the engine and transmission characteristics according to your driving style, driving expectations and driving situations. Select Intelligent mode for smoother acceleration and more efficient operation, or Sport mode for a more exciting driving experience, with enhanced power and acceleration.
Brembo Performance Brakes provide safe stopping power with six Pot Calipers at the front and two Pot Calipers at the rear.
Multi-mode DCCD (Driver’s Control Centre Differential) lets you tailor the distribution of front/rear torque, and, alongside VDC (Vehicle Dynamics Control), helps prevent loss of control or skidding.
Active Torque Vectoring (ATV) helps prevent understeer and oversteer. By braking the inside wheels under cornering and delivering greater torque to the outside wheels, ATV ensures a predictable course through corners.
The SUBARU infotainment system lets you make phone calls*1. You can control operations via the central multi-function touchscreen, steering wheel controls, or simply use your voice. It’s easy to connect your smartphone or other mobile music device via the USB or standard AUX jack.
The keyless entry & push button start system makes short work of setting off. A key fob gives you easy keyless entry. Simply grip the door handles to unlock them and start the engine with the push of a button.
LED self-levelling headlights adjust the beams automatically to reflect the vehicle’s load, preventing glare that could dazzle oncoming traffic whilst maximising visibility.
