2015 Subaru WRX STI Type S breaks cover in Japan

Article by Christian A., on August 25, 2014

Earlier today we revealed you the WRX S4, but this vehicle wasn’t the only one unveiled by the Japanese company as Fuji Heavy Industries also introduced the 2015 Subaru WRX STI Type S. According to Subaru, the WRX STI Type S comes with the same chassis mods as the WRX S4 as well as with the Driver’s Control Center Differential (DCCD) fitted as standard.

Under the hood, there is the same 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine that generates 305 hp and 422 Nm of torque. The engine is bolted to a six-speed manual transmission as standard but as an option Subaru offers six-speed automatic gearbox.

This means that the JDM-spec WRX STI Type S develops the same output as the US-spec version but with a smaller engine. For those who don’t know, the US-Spec 2015 Subaru WRX STI uses a 2.5-liter tuevocharged/intercooled four-cylinder Boxer engine that produces 305 h and 393 Nm of torque.

Regarding the design, the 2015 Subaru WRX STI Type S features new front fender ducts, side sills and a new set of 18-inch alloy wheels.

Open the doors and you will see the D-shaped steering wheel featuring red stitching, a gear knob wrapped in leather, aluminum pedals as well as the 3.5-inch liquid crystal display.

The interior design is completed by the piano black finishes and decorative carbon fiber trim panels. Just like the WRX S4, the new Subaru WRX STI Type S will be offered exclusively in Japan and is available to order as of today.
