One of the most iconic cars in the World Rally Championship – the Subaru Impreza WRX STI has been offered by the Japanese manufacturer for public for a long time. Of course, the version for public roads is much different than the one used in the rally races, but it is still very powerful car with amazing handling. Now, the Japanese manufacturer is just days away from the unveiling of the all-new 2017 Subaru Impreza WRX STI and according too many reports, spy shots and a few official images – the new car is going to be amazing. The latest Impreza WRX STI has a brand new chassis and a new engine, with the completely restyled exterior.
Unlike any of its predecessors, the 2017 Subaru Impreza WRX STI is going to look like a serious, grown up version of this model. The Japanese manufacturer decided to introduce a completely new car with lots of changes and thanks to this changes – the 2017 WRX STI looks amazing! First of all, the new Impreza WRX STI will be offered in blue color and with gold alloy wheels – something that has become a tradition for this version. On the front of the car are used new headlights (with integrated LED daytime running lights), new grille which houses the Subaru logo and the STI branding, along with the new bumper which has integrated fog lights.
On the back, this car does not look like any of its predecessors – there are new taillights with LED elements, new and bigger rear spoiler, twin exhausts with dual pipes and new rear diffuser. The new chassis makes the 2015 Subaru Impreza WRX STI a little bigger than its predecessors, however, the Japanese manufacturer claims that this is not going to affect performance and handling in any way.
The interior of any Subaru Impreza WRX STI was not an important part of its appeal. The interior in this version is fairly similar to the one that was in the previous model, however, there are some small changes which make the cabin look better. First of all, in this car everything is about the driver and the driving experience – there are no buttons or stuff that are not needed in the interior. There are, however, some nice details and the interior looks more stylish and modern – the Japanese manufacturer decided to use black and red as the two colors for the interior (black is the primary color, while red is only for details).
The 2017 Subaru Impreza WRX STI is going to be offered with only one engine – the new 2.5l flat-four turbocharged engine which produces 305 horsepower and 315 lb-ft of torque. The engine similar to the ones used before, however, this new engine should be more efficient and durable. This engine will be paired with a 6-speed manual transmission and it is going to have all wheel drive.
