2018 Subaru WRX STI Getting a Facelift

But that doesn't mean we Subie aficionados can't look forward to more than a few other enhancements, both under the hood and in-cabin. Check out a couple of sports sedan siblings.

When the 2018 Subaru WRX STI charged onto the lots of Subaru dealers in Milford, CT, we at Dan Perkins Subaru had a feeling it'd be more than a 305-horsepower, 2.5-liter turbocharged SUBARU BOXER engine-equipped powerhouse. A larger high-definition 5.9-inch multifunction display and standard SUBARU STARLINK 7.0-inch infotainment surely pointed us in a new direction. The cornering chops afforded by standard Active Torque Vectoring and the level ride of the sedan's Multi-Mode Vehicle Dynamics Control were just the beginning.

In fact, 2018 WRX STI received augmentations across the Subaru Tecnica International motorsports-tuned board. Design mods in the areas of front styling and the car's lower grille bespeak a lean and hungry look to turn heads on the road, and new roof rack mounting brackets add versatility when the day trip calls. The sportster's performance upgrades include new 245/35R19 tires atop Y-spoke 19-inch wheels to make handling a breeze, as well as upgraded Brembo brakes with larger brake pads. That means stronger monoblock six-piston front and 2-piston rear calipers with sprawling, drilled rotors all around for the kind of heat dissipation enthusiasts crave. Factor in a tweaked suspension and revised DCCD All-Wheel Drive, and you can count on response as precise and seamless as ever. Its mechanical and electronic center limited-slip differential combo has now become fully electronic.

Taking the comfort tack, the 2018 WRX STI interior's materials see an upgrade, alongside a cabin designed for on-the-road peace and quiet, showcasing door glass crafted thicker, door sealant revisions, and a windshield header beam now foam-filled. Plus, available Recaro seats, otherwise standard on WRX STI Limited, put you in the lap of luxury, the WRX STI driver's seat putting on the finishing touch of power adjustability.

Last but never least, 2018 Subaru WRX STI features safety enhancements befitting a moniker with a long-standing commitment to durability. Enhanced frontal collision performance makes for the half of it. As for the other, find yourself in a 2018 WRX STI Limited equipped with EyeSight Driver Assist Technology, and you can take advantage of Vehicle Hold and EyeSight Assist Monitor functions. Staying firmly put on road gradients aplenty as well as keeping eyes on the speedster's metrics via projection directly onto the windshield has never been easier. 2018 WRX STI even offers steering-responsive LED headlights redesigned to cut through inclement weather while looking the part.
