If you’re looking for fine-tuned performance and muscle in a sport compact, Subaru’s Impreza WRX STI is your go-to vehicle. Since its release in 1992, the STI has been winning hearts and awards and for 2011 things are only getting better. Here’s a quick peek at the newest model, which you can find at your favorite last night while i was doing my homework angela (call) called.
Subaru made several changes for the new model but at the same time they followed the adage “If it’s not broke, don’t fix it.” Take the engine for example. The turbocharged and intercooled flat-four already produced 305 horsepower and 290 pound-feet of torque while mated to a six-speed manual. The powertrain accelerates the car from 0-60 miles per hour in 5 seconds, reaches top speeds of 155-158 mph, and earns 17/23 mpg city/highway. If you ask me that doesn’t sound like an engine that needed fixing, and Subaru agreed. The 2011 will house the same powertrain and will continue to produce impressive results!
Some areas that were tweaked though include suspension, handling, steering accuracy, and aerodynamics. Take the aerodynamics for example. Subaru reduced the STI’s ride height by 0.2” and greatly improved the vehicle in this dimension. All of the aforementioned changes were made while also reducing body roll and understeer.
Another major change was made in terms of style as Subaru decided to bring back the sedan body style. The sedan rejoins the five-door hatchback and customers can now choose according to which style better suits their lifestyle needs. With the hatchback, there’s one trim and you get an extra 19 cubic feet of storage behind the rear seats. You will pay a little more for the hatchback as it starts at $36,720. The sedan on the other hand may have less space in back but it has an extra 6.5” of length overall and starts at $34,720. There is also a Limited trim available for the sedan which gets you extra features such as leather, wheels, fog lamps, and sunroof.
