Pictures of the 2015 Subaru WRX STI have leaked even before its official debut at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show. We are getting all the main ingredients for one sporty vehicle and there is no doubt that this is a true Subaru racer.
Elements like real spoiler or better say wing is delivered here. Both blue color and gold wheels are offered and everything we are getting on WRC models is set to be launched on this version also. At least that is regarding these aesthetics and details.
2015 Subaru WRX STI Release Date
The official debut as we said is scheduled for the 2014 Detroit Auto Show that starts in only few days and that is when we will be getting all official information’s about this car. Until than we will share what we have received until now.
Under the hood of the new STI we will be getting well known 2.5 liter boxer four cylinder unit that in this vehicle will produce 290 pound feet of torque while the exact number of hp is not been specified. We do know that the final number will be between 300 and 305 hp so there will be no huge differences which one is delivered.
It is quite obvious that this engine offers a lot more than what we are getting from a standard 2.0 liter turbocharged version in WRX. Same engine comes in Forester but this 2.5 liter unit brings a lot more. When powerful engine is combined with all wheel drive system that is near perfect like the one we have from Subaru we are getting great recipe for a fantastic ride.
Not only more power is delivered with the new STI. Just like every previous performance model that was offered from this car maker we are getting improvements on many fields. Suspension is tuned to offer better grip but it should not significantly lower the level of comfort of this already sporty model. Bigger brakes are offered for increased stopping power and lower fade on the track and under heavier loads.
There is no doubt that performances we will be getting from this car will be at highest level. At this moment we do not have acceleration figures but we do expect that from 0 to 62 mph it will need slightly over 4 seconds thankfully to its fantastic all wheel drive system. Top speed figure is still unknown but it is rarely reached but you can be sure that it will be one of the fastest of the line.
2015 Subaru WRX STI Price
Price of the 2015 STI is still not known but since the standard model comes with price tag of about $ 26.000 we know that the STI version will come with increase. We expect that it will start from $ 30.000 or even higher but still it will not have much room for significant increases since it will have to stay in competitive price range.
