When you love your wife you have to be prepared to do anything for her, or at least this is what everybody says. Subaru decided to use this idea in their latest commercial where it highlights the performances of the 2015 WRX STI. The so-called perfect man, wakes up ahead of its beautiful wife in order to prepare breakfast but they ran out of bread.
As a result, he jumps into his brand new 2015 Subaru WRX STI and hurries up to buy some bread before his wife comes to breakfast. The baker is even more hilarious when he comes out of his shop and prepares to serve his customer after he does some donuts.
Clearly inspired by the popular Gymkhana where Ken Block impresses with his Ford Fiesta RS WRC, the new video released by Subaru is quite impressive. For those who don’t know, the 2015 Subaru WRX STI is powered by a 2.5-liter turbocharged/intercooled 4-cylidner Boxer engine that delivers 305 hp at 6,000 rpm and 290 lb-ft (393 Nm) of torque at 4,000 rpm.
The engine it mated to a specially reinforced 6-speed manual transmission and the vehicle comes with the Subaru Intelligent Drive (SI-Drive) powertrain management that allows the driver to choose from three selectable modes - “Intelligent,” “Sport” and “Sport Sharp” – using just a rotary dial.
Just like the previous version, the 2015MY WRX STI is features a large trunk spoiler, a new rear diffuser, LED taillights and the LED center high-mount stop lamp (CHMSL).
For the 2015 model year, the new Subaru WRX STI is given a bolder front design marked by a "nose-cone" configuration that combines the grille and bumper cap into a singular unit just ahead of the aluminum hood. The hexagonal grille is flanked by narrower headlights that offer a more powerful stare it employs, as standard, low-beam headlights with LED units.
This new model is identified as the Subaru WRX STI thanks to distinctive elements like the special hood, fenders, bumpers, headlights and taillight clusters as well as special doors and quarters. Just like on its predecessors, the hood of new WRX STI features a functional scoop – now set deeper for enhanced forward visibility -- that directs cooling air to the intercooler.
The new WRX STI is provided with new performance-oriented elements like foglight surrounds with a carbon fiber-like pattern as well as front fender vents with a mesh screen. It is fitted with a full aerodynamic body package that includes a large trunk spoiler. Other distinctive details include LED taillights, LED center high-mount stop lamp (CHMSL) and a rear diffuser.
The 2015 iteration of the Subaru WRX STI body structure employs high-tensile steel more extensively than its predecessor and comes with special stiffening elements at crucial locations. Thanks to its stiffer chassis, the new WRX STI offers steering response that is as fast that as that of top-handling sports cars. Its 13.0:1 steering ratio results to a quick 2.5 turns lock-to-lock (14.5:1 and 2.8 for standard WRX).
