Subaru launches a more aggressive WRX in Japan

By Faiming_low on 06 Oct 2016 in New model

Attached Image Subaru has just introduced its latest WRX variant in Japan. Hotter than the entry-level WRX S4(which is different from the base WRX we get locally), the new car is made for someone who wants a more hardcore WRX that is pair with an automatic gearbox. Called the WRX S4 tS, the new car inherits some of the good stuff from the top-of-the-line WRX STi S207.

Attached Image Highlight features of the car include a 10 percent improvement in torque delivery during acceleration, which is achieved via improved air intake and exhaust parts, better braking thanks to uprated Brembos and sharper handling courtesy of a flexible tow bar. DampMatic II front suspension with adjustable damping and front-rear active torque vectoring are present too. A CVT oil cooler has been added to improve the cooling performance of the Sport Lineartronic CVT transmission for track work.

Attached Image Not special enough? A 'NBR Challenge Package' is available as an add on for nearly S$3000 more. The car will now have black forged aluminum wheels, a dry carbon rear spoiler with STI logo, an exclusive emblem at the rear and a suede-wrapped steering wheel.

Subaru quotes similar power figures as the WRX S4 which equates to 296bhp and 400Nm of torque from the 2.0-litre turbocharged FA20 engine.

Prices for the WRX S4 tS start from 4,968,000Yen (S$65,887) and the Japan-only car will be limited to a five-month sale period.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?

Subaru really needs to get out of this 300bp limit they seem to have imposed on themselves since over a decade ago.

Scooba need to join the band wagon of 1450 rpm to 5500 rpm worth of peak torque.
