2018 WRX / WRX STI WRX

The best-handling, best-performing WRX and WRX STI ever.

Premium in Pure Red with optional Performance Package. Cornering Responsiveness The WRX has all the hardware needed to corner with grace and speed. Starting with the suspension, the WRX has an enviable setup—a rigid unibody chassis with reinforced suspension mounting points, aluminum front lower control arms with pillow-ball joint mounts, and a double wishbone rear suspension architecture with pillow-ball joint bushings. Add Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and Active Torque Vectoring, and you’ve got a recipe for world-class handling. Having excellent grip is only half of the handling equation. The other is the driver’s sensation of control and precision, which the WRX delivers, thanks to a nearinstant 14.4:1 steering ratio1 . With available 18-inch wheels and inverted front struts for less unsprung weight and more cornering response, every road will be met with your absolute confidence. Drive first. The where will happen.

Requires EyeSight®. Power Safety Pure bliss exists in the form of the 268-hp 2.0-liter Direct Injection Turbocharged (DIT) SUBARU BOXER® engine that lies at the heart of the WRX, where power is generated smoothly, efficiently and instantaneously, thanks to its twin-scroll turbocharger. Matched with either the revised 6-speed manual transmission or the Sport Lineartronic™ Transmission with SI-DRIVE and paddle shifters, the WRX engine is a modern engineering marvel. The WRX backs up its potent performance features with appropriately robust safety measures. New for 2018, LED Steering Responsive Headlights (SRH) help you safely see around corners when driving at night. With a standard Rear-Vision Camera, available Blind-Spot Detection,2 Rear Cross-Traffic Alert2 and High Beam Assist,3 the WRX is proof that performance and safety don’t have to be mutually exclusive.

S-20158_18WRXSTIb_IFC-01_r4.indd 1 5/1/17 8:17 AM Cornering Responsiveness The WRX STI is laser-focused on handling with a track-tuned suspension that features standard inverted front struts and aluminum front lower control arms for low unsprung weight, an attribute further enhanced by its lightweight 19-inch alloy wheels. And it’s all underpinned by Subaru Symmetrical AWD with a newly revised Driver Controlled Center Differential (DCCD), front and rear limited-slip differentials and Active Torque Vectoring, so you can hit your apexes and nail your exits with control, precision and speed. The WRX STI driving experience is a synergy between driver and car that’s all too rare. You’ll feel an invigorating sense of control, thanks to the ultra-quick 13.3:1 steering ratio, rigid unibody chassis and powerful Brembo® highperformance braking system, which features 6-piston front and 2-piston rear monoblock calipers and cross-drilled rotors to stop you with authority and reduced brake fade. For more stability at higher speeds, the signature rear wing of the WRX STI adds downforce for greater control. “Purpose-built for the hardcore.” — Autoweek.com, 2016 S-20158_18WRXSTIb_02-03_r3.indd 2 4/26/17 2:48 PM WRX STI Limited in WR Blue Pearl. | 2018 WRX / WRX STI 3 Power Heritage It’s a potent, race-proven package—a 305-hp 2.5-liter turbocharged SUBARU BOXER® engine coupled with a precise and durable 6-speed, close-ratio transmission and SI-DRIVE for on-the-fly performance adjustments. Invigorating horsepower and addictive torque are always on tap, waiting to be unleashed. For nearly three decades, Subaru Tecnica International (STI) has applied lessons learned in motorsports to Subaru automobiles, not only enhancing performance but the ability to keep performing, lap after lap. Their holistic approach to engineering results in vehicles that are more communicative, responsive, and able to take the sustained punishment that high-intensity driving demands.

Maximum boost pressure: 15.9 psi. Turbocharger with intercooler. Maximum boost pressure: 14.7 psi. SI-DRIVE performance management system Subaru Intelligent Drive (SI-DRIVE) enables three distinctively different modes of vehicle performance characteristics by regulating the engine control unit (ECU) and by fine-tuning the electronically controlled throttle. For WRX models equipped with Sport Lineartronic™ Transmission, SI-DRIVE also adjusts transmission shift characteristics. 1 Transmission Fully synchronized 6-speed manual with carbon first- and second-gear synchros, and Incline Start Assist Fully synchronized close-ratio 6-speed manual with Incline Start Assist Sport Lineartronic™ Transmission with 6- and 8-speed manual modes, paddle shifters and Incline Start Assist. WRX Premium and WRX Limited: Optional. Traction and Stability All-Wheel Drive type Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive Driver Controlled Center Differential (DCCD) All-Wheel Drive Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC) VDC electronic stability control utilizes sensors that constantly monitor wheel speeds, steering angle, brake pressure, vehicle yaw rate and lateral g-forces. If VDC detects a difference between the driver’s intended path and the one the vehicle is actually taking, VDC applies braking power and/or reduces engine torque to help correct vehicle path. Includes standard, off and performance-oriented Traction mode. Active Torque Vectoring Active Torque Vectoring works in tandem with VDC applying braking power to the inside front wheel resulting in sharper turn-in, more neutral steering and higher cornering limits when turning. Traction Control System (TCS) VDC also incorporates an all-wheel, all-speed traction control system that, when sensing a loss of traction, reduces engine torque and applies braking force to the slipping wheel or wheels as necessary to maintain vehicle motion.
