THE POWER TO ESCAPE LIMITS. THE CONTROL TO SHAPE POSSIBILITY.
Whilst the 2.5-litre turbocharged SUBARU BOXER engine generating 221 kW and 407 Nm of torque provides electrifying acceleration, driving performance isn’t just about numbers. That’s why the WRX STI was revamped to enhance overall driving feel. Its exceptional handling, made possible by a combination of the improved 6-speed manual transmission and Multi-mode Driver Controlled Centre Differential (DCCD), provides optimum differential control even on snowy roads. And combined with the stopping power from its Brembo* brakes and cross-drilled rotors, the WRX STI is more communicative, more responsive, and more exciting to drive in many situations.
Subaru Intelligent Drive (SI-DRIVE) lets you adapt the driving character of the WRX* or the WRX STI to your needs or desires. Whilst in Intelligent Mode [I], acceleration is smooth with an eye toward optimal efficiency. Select Sport Mode [S] for linear response, and versatile command of every condition. To extract the maximum response from the turbocharged engine, switch to Sport Sharp Mode [S#]. It gives you the most direct throttle response and precise rev control across the entire rpm range.
02. Multi-mode DCCD
The enhanced Multi-mode Driver Controlled Centre Differential (DCCD) has been revamped for even better handling ability. It allows you to dial-in the centre differential locking of the WRX STI and thereby shape its handling. Thanks to chassis advancements, electronic control is now used over the entire operating range to apportion torque to the front and rear wheels. Auto Mode finds the ideal power distribution for changing conditions, whilst Auto [+] keeps more power up front for increased traction. Auto [—] puts more power to the rear for tighter cornering, and the six-step Manual Mode lets you lock in your preferred handling characteristics.
