WRX STI is the iconic Subaru model; the modern incarnation of yesteryear’s Impreza, conjuring images of special stage success and rallying legends pushing to the limit. Today, Subaru UK launch the WRX STI Final Edition, strictly limited to 150 models to say farewell to this brand icon and mark the end of this era of Subaru’s heritage in the UK.
Owning a Subaru guarantees that you will always have an array of pioneering technologies at your fingertips. Drivers who select the WRX STI Final Edition receive much more than just an athletic car - they benefit from years of the manufacturer's many engineering advances.
These innovations are felt from the moment the engine starts and the first corner is turned. From the drivetrain to the chassis and all supporting technology, every performance-related function has been considered for how it adds to the complete driving dynamic.
Symmetrical All-Wheel drive assigns the turbocharged 2.5 litre, 300 PS Boxer engine’s power to each wheel with ruthless precision. The resulting grip, on any surface, is jaw-dropping. A stiffened, track-tuned aluminium suspension underpins razor-sharp handling. Feel how the WRX STI simply exudes confidence.
Performance isn’t about raw power. It’s how the power is delivered that counts. The 6-speed manual transmission offers gear changes that are slick and crisp. And, whilst the Boxer engine can deliver truly electrifying acceleration, SI-Drive lets you select precisely how assertively you’d like the car to respond.
In a car this capable, stopping is a serious business. Brembo Performance Brakes on the front axle ensure 18-inch discs and 6-piston calipers, with 18 inch/2-caliper pairs at the rear. The iconic rear spoiler isn’t a design aesthetic, either. It maximises downforce at speed to maximise stability and grip.
The sharp 'punch-counterpunch' movement of the horizontal pistons lends the Boxer engine its name. It features across the Subaru model range, making it the first engine with a horizontally-opposed layout to be specifically developed for passenger cars.
The engineering features throughout the WRX STI which impact stability and resilience have a direct influence on the car's high level of safety. In yet another nod to the racing influences throughout the vehicle, high-performance Brembo brakes and Active Torque Vectoring are included as standard. These are joined by a host of secure, protective cabin equipment.
It's in the safety measures that you can truly appreciate the practical, passenger car elements of this inspiring model. It offers great appeal to families, with ISOFIX child seat attachments and child-proof rear door locks as standard. Everyone further benefits from the inclusion of comprehensive, strategically-placed SRS airbags, whiplash-reducing seat designs, and supportive beams at the side doors and steering column.
On the road price includes VAT, delivery, number plates, 12 months road fund licence and first registration fee. WRX STI, is covered by a standard 3 Year / 60,000 mile (whichever is sooner) Manufacturer's Warranty (bumper to bumper, excluding clutch driven plate). Optional special paint finishes extra at £550.
