Subaru Impreza WRX STI saloon revealedThu, 01 Apr 2010
The 2011 Subaru Impreza STI revealed at the New York Motor Show today
You may remember a couple of days ago we brought you a tease from Subaru about the Subaru Impreza WRX STI saloon due to be unveiled in New York this week. All we could really tell from the tease we got was that it was an Impreza with a big wing. And guess what? We were right. It’s a new 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STI Saloon with a big wing. What a shock.
It’s actually the first time in years that Subaru has produced a four door and the first time ever that they’ve produced an STI with a saloon setup.
The STI gets a set of suspension tweaks including thicker anti-roll bars front and rear together with stiffer bushes and springs and a set of lighter 18″ alloys. Oh, and it also gets the thumping great wing at the back which, according to Subaru, “…aids high-speed stability and on-the-limit handling“.
What you don’t get is any extra oomph, although the WRX STI Saloon will sound like it has more oomph. Subaru have had a play with the exhaust to make it “Meaner and Louder“, so you may not go any quicker but it’ll sound like it.
Will we get the Impreza WRS STI Saloon in the UK? Probably unlikely, unless importer International Motors get a deluge of emails from UK Scooby fans demanding the right to buy.
So we’ll have to wait and see.
