2018 Subaru WRX Sti First Drive, Price, Performance and Review

Don’t let the giant trunk wing fool you: The STI is not about to go airborne before your very eyes. With 305 hp from its turbocharged 2.5-liter flat-four, it’s just not the performance threat that it once was. A six-speed manual, limited-slip differentials, and torque vectoring help keep the STI glued to the road. Its steering is laser-quick and its brakes grip like crazy. The result makes it entertaining to drive, but the fun comes at the price of a punishing ride—and a punishing price.

The Subaru WRX STI is kind of like that extremely smart kid who brings home report cards with Cs and Ds littering the page. Unchallenged, he or she gets bored, strays from the path of caring, and produces uninspired results. Offered more strenuous and demanding tasks, however, the student applies him- or herself and excels.

2018 Subaru Wrx Sti Release Date

The STI is built to be pushed. It begs for tight corners, high speeds, and full throttle openings. When the driver’s blood boils, the car proves proficient. But there are broader expectations for cars with four doors and a normal trunk. Part of the STI’s charm is that it also could be a practical vehicle, even for families. It’s derived from the previous-generation Impreza, after all. But like that bored kid in class, its manners and attitude in ordinary circumstances leave room for improvement. Subaru promises a Type RA variant with performance enhancements later in this model year, but we’re not expecting an all-new next-generation WRX and STI until 2020.
