A more accessibile version of the renowned WRX STI, Subaru announced that they’ll be releasing a new Impreza WRX STI A-Line edition. Using the company’s 4-cylinder turbocharged 2.5 liter Boxer engine mated a five speed automatic transmission dubbed as SPORTSHIFT, it manages to sport 300 hp and 350 Nm of torque. And if we already know what the Japanese can do with the engines and performances, they’ve outdone themselves when it comes to the interior. There’s an 8-directional electronically adjustable driver’s seat (there’s the option for leather) and leather trim on the inner door paneling highlighted with silver stitching. Furios yet elegant, the new Subaru Impreza WRX STI A-Line is definitely hot in that “Satin White Pearl”.
Here are more details:
- a single scroll turbocharger for steady torque
- Downshifting Blipping Control for better shifting of the automatic transmission
- VTD (Variable Torque Distribution) AWD system
- a Tumble Generation Valve that controls air intake for maximum combustion efficiency
