Subaru WRX STI Australian pricing announced

2018 Subaru WRX STI

Subaru has tweaked the front end adding a revised front bumper, a fresh hexagonal grille with black surrounds, new fog-light bezels and responsive and daytime running C-shaped LED headlights, which bring the WRX and WRX STI into line with the brand's current design language.

The new lap record for a four-door sedan stands in line at 6 minutes and 57.5 seconds, and it's actually on par with the Porsche 918 Spyder's 6:57 - which was until late previous year the overall record holder, until the cavalcade of new models - led by the Lamborghini Huracan Performante - took charge of lowering the threshold.

In addition, WRX Premium and WRX STI Premium variants also gain electric lumbar adjustment as part of the upgrade package to eight-way adjustment for the driver's seat, with two-position memory.

Topping the line-up is the new WRX STI spec.R model, which checks in from $57,690, with its $2050 premium over the WRX STI Premium adding eight-way adjustable Recaro front seats.

There are mechanical and cosmetic changes, but the range has the same starting price of $39,240 plus on roads.

The entry-level WRX model upgrades to dusk-sensing headlights and rain-sensing windscreen wipers, features previously reserved for the WRX Premium.

The WRX Premium and WRX STI Premium also score electric lumbar support and heated front seats.

UGC NET 2017 detailed notification out on July 24 at csenet
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is all set to release detailed notification for UGC NET November 2017 exam today. Last date to submit the application online is 30 August 2017 and fee will be accepted till 31 August 2017.

For the "2018" model WRX Subaru has specified fade-resistant Jurid high-performance brake pads, red-painted brake calipers (front only for auto models), redesigned 18-inch alloy wheels, heated door mirrors, LED for front fog lights and retuned suspension.

Subaru has also added its Eyesight active safety system which includes features like autonomous emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, pre-collision steering assist and hazard warnings among others.

The iconic rear wing spoiler can be added to the WRX STI as a $300 option.

The suspension has also been revised across both variants.


Power comes from the same 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine that delivers 197kW and 350Nm in WRX guise and is matched to either a six-speed manual or a CVT automatic transmission.

The 2.0-litre unit in the WRX pumps out 197kW/350Nm, while the 2.5-litre engine under the WRX STI's bonnet produces a meatier 221kW/407Nm.

Subaru designers have opted for a finish (like piano-gloss black lacquer) throughout the interior of the WRX STI.
