Subaru is looking to build off of a great 2010 year with some exciting updates to buyer favorites such as the Impreza and the WRX STI. For 2011, The Subaru Impreza receives new bodywork, wider wheels and tires, and stiffer rear sub frame bushings. Available as both a five-door hatchback and sedan, the Impreza has a wider body in both models. Flared fenders allow for room to have the wheels and tires widened a full inch over the 2010 model.
The driver can expect good handling which is only a little looser that the STI. The power on this car is definitely adequate, with the 2.5-liter turbocharged flat-four engine creating 265 horsepower. The popular five-speed manual transmission from last year remains on this year’s model. Also, the Impreza has been tested to go from 0-60 mph in under five seconds. The 2011 Subaru Impreza is going to start at $17,495 and is coming out soon.
The Subaru WRX STI also has received some serious bodywork. The 305 horsepower already under the hood from last year’s turbocharged flat-four was plenty of power so the Subaru team focused on what really need the most help: the on-road handling and suspension. The 2011 STI has a very aggressive suspension that works to further reduce body roll and create more natural handling. Stiffer springs are installed, as are more rigid rear sub frame bushings. Subaru testing resulted in crisper handling while still keeping a livable ride. The bumpers are more aggressive and the fog lights are blacked-out. The STI also features a large rear spoiler which is supposed to enhance high speed control and helps achieve aerodynamic lift.
Although the new cars from Subaru are very exciting some buyers may find a used car as a better fit. Luckily there are a countless amount of used Subaru vehicles on the market today. In creative writing internships can be a great utility vehicle for many different types of people. There is plenty of cargo room for things such as fishing gear or beach chairs. Also available in Ft. Myers, Subaru Legacy, a classy midsize sedan, would be a perfect fit for people looking for a quality but modestly priced sedan.
