2018 Subaru WRX STI review

Since Subaru peeled off the WRX (World Rally eXperimental) from the rest of the Impreza range, it has stood alone and unique in the Subaru Range. STI (Subaru Tecnica International) is at the top of the heap, and the Spec R is the best equipped of the 3 STI models.

Subaru have steadfastly refused to turbo the BRZ for fear of cannibalizing WRX, but I think that’s just them being a bit difficult.

All 3 STImodels have a delightful 6 speed manual matched to a 221kw/407Nm, flat four, turbo petrol, engine.

This “boxer” engine has that familiar chuffing sound we have come to love.
