Launched for the 2014 model year, the Subaru WRX STi was a change in direction from the previous generation STi models, the main reason being the name. With this generation, Subaru dropped the "Impreza" name that had famed all UK-specification cars throughout the nineties and noughties. This, however is the only part of the formula that was changed. The WRX STi is still powered by a 2.5 litre turbocharged 4-cylinder "boxer" engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission and all-wheel drive. The engine note still giving the distinctive Subaru burble that they are famed for. The WRX STi really is a raw car. Even before you drive it, you notice the aggressive styling.
The massive rear wing, the quad exhaust pipes, the sculpted bodykit, the 18" alloy wheels, the massive scoop in the bonnet to suck in all the cold air required to keep the turbo spooling. All of these features give you the distinct indication that this isn't a 140bhp diesel. From the first turn of the key (or push of the button, because who uses a key anymore) you can feel the character of the car come alive. The engine roars into life, the turbo boost gauges and acceleration monitor all give the indication that this car means business.To drive, the car really is something else. With switchable driving modes (which, I shit you not, help you decide how aggressive you want the turbo boost) it is tremendously fast. 0-60MPH takes just 5 seconds to get to, with the engine producing 300BHP and 300ib/ft of torque.
It isn't just about the power, however, the way this car delivers is like nothing else on the road. The four wheel drive system ensures you are glued to the tarmac with no drama whatsoever. No wheelspin (even with the most spirited of launches), no understeer, no oversteer, just no drama. A superb car that is all to easy to drive fast, while looking like a professional in the process.Although it is still powered by a large 4-cylinder engine like most of the old Impreza STi's, the WRX STi is also ultra-modern with plenty of technology to keep you on the straight and narrow. It features electrically selectable driving modes, a plethora of gauges that give you all the information that you need, as well as plenty that you really don't. You can also adjust the limited slip differential to control how much help you require from the car to keep you out of trouble. The suspension is rather firm but, this all adds to the appeal of a Scooby. It is a very raw, in your face car that makes no excuses.
