2015 Subaru WRX S4 becomes official in Japan

Article by Christian A., on August 25, 2014

As promised, Subaru unveiled the WRX S4, a new version of the WRX that will be exclusively in Japan. According to the official press release, the S4 tag is actually formed by four values: sports performance, safety performance, smart driving and sophisticated feel.

The 2015 Subaru WRX S4 is powered by a 2.0-liter direct injection turbo (DIT) engine that produces 300 hp (221 kW) at 5,600 rpm and 400 Nm of torque between 2,000 and 4,800 rpm. The engine is bolted to the Sport Lineartronic transmission and offers a fuel consumption of 7.57 l/100 km.

This means that the WRX S4 is more powerful than the 2015 Subaru WRX, which offers 272 hp (299 kW) and 349 Nm of torque. As expected, the new WRX S4 comes with a new design which includes the Subaru hexagonal grille, hawkeye headlights and a front hood featuring a stylish air scoop for better cooling of the engine.

At the rear, we find LED taillights, a trunk lip spoiler and a rear bumper with integrated air diffuser and exhaust system. In addition, the WRX S4 comes with two new exterior colours: WR Blue Pearl and Crystal White Pearl.

Inside, we find a D-shaped steering wheel, a leather-wrapped gear knob with red stitching, piano black finishes and metallic accents. Moreover, the decorative carbon trim panels and metal trim accents complete the design.

The dash is dominated by the 3.5-inch full color liquid crystal display. Furthermore, the red is used for stitching throughout the interior as well as on the meters in order to keep the WRX racing image.
