Subaru releases Gymkhana-style commercial for new WRX STI [w/video]

Article by Christian A., on July 18, 2014

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).
