The first-generation Subaru WRX was released in 1992. It competed at several rally championships and mostly succeeded. Due to its impressive horsepower paired with undeniably good looks, it gained many followers.
Now on its fourth generation, the all-new Subaru WRX STI still reigns supreme not only in race tracks but on quieter highways.

The new Subaru WRX STI still has its ancestor’s distinct features but is modernized. Its front displays wider intake vents with matted, trim pieces, LED headlights with auto leveler and daytime running lights, pop-up type headlamp washers, and foldable side mirrors with turn signal lights.
The WRX STI’s athletic body measures 4,595mm long, 1,795mm wide, and 1,475mm tall bears subtle lines that help its aerodynamic capabilities. At the top, a tilt-adjustable, power sliding sunroof is built that adds sophistication to its aggressive appeal.
Its rear also flaunts efficient details such as the shark fin antenna, dual twin tail mufflers, side sill spoilers, rear diffuser, LED combination lamps, fog lamps, and large spoiler. The Subaru WRX STI sits on a set of 18-inch alloy wheels with 245/40 R18 tires.
As the WRX STI is rally-bred, expect basic comfort inside its cabin. Drivers will enjoy the 10-way power-adjustable sporty seat with red highlights, high-grade multi-function display with boost pressure meter, dual-zone climate control, and the aluminum pedals.
Passengers will be delighted with the split-folding seats at the rear, seat armrest, door pockets with bottle holders, and power windows with up and down function and pinch protection.
Charging your mobile devices is easy as the cabin has 12-volt power outlets in the center console box and center panel.
