2015 Subaru STI Debut | New WRX STI Released In Detroit
Posted on 14 January 2014
Today at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show Subaru debuted the all new redesigned 2015 WRX / STI!
With the new look comes plenty of hate, and honestly we've heard "is that an Evo X" way too many times to count. But personally I feel the overall concept has really produced an exciting new rally ready sports car. As we all know price point and release date are two of the biggest questions when any new platform comes to the market. But before we get to those details lets recap what's new with the 2015 Subaru STI.
"The 2015 WRX STI also features a meaner front fascia than the Impreza it’s based on, with narrower headlights (including LED low beams) that were inspired by a raptor’s stare, according to Subaru. The front end has also been molded into a “nose-cone” which combines the grille and bumper cap into one piece, and that’s made of aluminum to save weight. The powertrain backs up the those aggressive looks.

The STI benefits from the same stiffened chassis as the base WRX, which makes greater use of high-strength steel than previous models, and features extra stiffening at key points."
