In this video, Simone reviews the latest 2018 Subaru WRX STI in the spec. r trim. It has some minor changes intended to make us like it more.

Today, a few decades and many generations of tech advancements in the automotive world later, the WRX STI is still a sporty sedan with a boxer engine, very similar conspicuous design and turbo AWD performance.

The WRX STI comes with a 2.5 litre turbocharged flat-four–cylinder with 221 kW and 407 Nm of torque. It reaches 100 in about 5 seconds, which is pretty fast, though not awe-inspiring today.

The new Subaru WRX is a unique sports car that offers a reasonable amount of practicality for your day to day driver.
