Subaru just commenced sales of the fifth-generation Subaru Impreza months ago starting with the 2017 model. It was very impressive with its new appearance, but we won’t be able to see its new looks on the Impreza WRX or WRX STI soon, especially if the current generation of these performance models was just introduced in 2015. At the earliest, the next generation high-performance Impreza model would be available by the end of the decade.
But while the upcoming 2018 Subaru Impreza WRX and the Impreza WRX STI won’t sport completely new looks, the changes made were what many customers, fans and enthusiasts were waiting for – a more dynamic performance and a more aggressive appearance to match.
Just like on the WRX, the 2018 Subaru WRX STI boasts of a revised suspension tuning. Not only that, Subaru tweaked the DCCD AWD system by employing electronic control, thereby resulting to a quicker and smoother response. It also gave the 2018 Subaru WRX STI a set of newly designed 19-inch alloy wheels – with the Y-shaped spoke design – wrapped in 245/35R19 tires. Behind the wheels is the upgraded Brembo Performance Brake System with yellow-painted brake calipers.
