More photos of the Subaru WRX STI

By Faiming_low on 29 Jun 2014 in New model

Attached Image The new WRX STI. We know it has become more tamed and cultured. But will that turn off the Ah Beng driver that it has always appealed to? Not really, I reckon. Why? Because all the core attributes that made such a hit with people who love to drive in the early 90's and 2000's are still present.

Attached Image For example, the 2.5-litre four-pot turbocharged engine which puts out 296bhp and 407Nm of torque is still very punchy and since it is basically a carry-over from the previous generation, it will have quite a lot of parts out there ready to pump up the figures for the power hungry ones. Those looking for the throbbing tune from the Boxer engine will not be disappointed also.
Attached Image The six-speed manual shifter is also taken from the previous car. No bad thing as we love its short throws and the way it slots into its gates cleanly. 
Attached Image Gone will be the days where you see WRX owners installing a boost gauge since a digital one is now a standard feature.

Attached Image Elsewhere in the cabin, the Ah Bengs will love to be reminded that they are driving something special with all the bright pink STi badges littered around the car.
Attached Image The side air ducts, a design theme that could also be found from the previous generation STI...
Attached Image No Brembos this time though. But they prove more than enough for road use.
Attached Image So to the Bengs and Sengs out there, do get yours now. For the non-bengs out there, do get yours too and opt to remove the rear spoiler if it is too much for you!

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?

Horrible! Looks like a Honda Civic with a fugly body kit.
Their halo car is totally redesigned as a cheap looking high-school kid's hot hatch with a carry-over engine?!!

I hope subaru really did their market study since in my opinion, the new generation of customers are no longer into this ‘boy-racer’ category. Most of the previous ‘boy racer’ generation in the 90s and 2000s (during the EVO IX, X vs STI, Supra, Type -R Civics and Integra) have long move up to cyber dad/mom, family prime mover category of d-segment of sedan and SUVs. New generations are more into daily efficiency techs and gadgets. If the car looks sporty its a bonus, not a necessity.
Even the big rear spoiler is quite dated and traditional as new sports/racing cars is already equipped with various traction control/stability assists of 4-5 generations that no longer requires big spoiler to comprehend. Maybe its just to keep with the tradition. But i still think its irrelevant – you can look sporty and menacing at same time without big ass spoilers.
