If you like the Impreza but you think it isn’t fast enough than the WRX might be a good choice for you. However, if even that isn’t impressive enough for you, then the 2015 Subaru WRX STI might be just what you’re looking for. This model has been just announced and it is said to offer over the previous generation improved engine and more up to date styling that will be based on that of the 2015 WRX rather than that of the older STI.
The new model of the STI is going to be priced in the same segment as the Lancer EVO, so expect to pay up to $35,000 and reports suggest it will be exactly $34,495. The good part is that even though the price is quite high for such a car take into consideration that it comes with most of the usual options as standard, so there is no need for you to go for any additional equipment. Also, considering the car is going to be launched only in the early 2015, you might get a better deal for an older model, but only for a limited period of time. Base version of WRX costs about $26,295 and for that money you will be getting turbocharged 2.0 liter engine with good 268 hp.
2015 Subaru WRX STI Side
Let’s start with the engine in 2015 Subaru WRX STI. This particular unit has been on the market for more than 5 years which means it has time to be upgraded into quite a fearful beast. It is a boxer 4 engine with 2.5 liters in displacement and thanks to an improved variable valve timing control system and a new ECU it is capable of producing 305 horsepower (about five horsepower improvement over the previous engine) and 394 NM of torque (which is a bit less but it had to be done because the maximum rev limit has been increased to 7200 rpm).

So the engine is now more powerful but this doesn’t mean anything if there isn’t a chassis that can take advantage of that power. Thankfully, this car has one of the best and with the help of the all-time all-wheel drive system, limited slip differentials and the 6 speed manual transmission, the car is one of the best driver’s car in the world.

Thanks to the entire powertrain, it can accelerate from 0 to 60 MPH in less than 6 seconds and can go up to a limited top speed of 155 MPH. Depending on the transmission and setup it will need from 5.4 to 5.9 seconds for a zero to sixty run. These are quite impressive times especially when we add to the equation the great all-wheel drive system.
