good car bad power to weight ratio for 300bhp sold mine for the new type R and the sti felt like a snail compared to the honda

also worth noting you cant compare a Bentley gt to a hot hatch or the sti its just stupid, the Bentley is car you occasionally launch off at some lights, not really a track car meant for corners,

I think the European version (280ps) is much slower than the American version (309ps).

In Europe this offroad sedan costs around Euro 40k. If you look at Laguna Seca Performance and importantly same Driver (Randy P.) WRX performs roughly same as BENTLEY CONTINENTAL GT - which is an overpriced COW on wheels. Anyway, back to WRX, is this a joke ? Ok, Golf R is overpriced too with Euro 40k pricing but would you spend that money on a car that handles like a Bentley GT pretending to handle like an offroad F1 (judging by its table attached to the boot, which really puts me off). Same for 2015 model of course.

It seems that new WRX STI is all around more sharper car, more focused than previous model was compared to standard WRX. Closer gear ratio, more aggresive suspension. Seems a lot of fun.

I don't see any reason to keep the power at that for so long, Especially for a new generation, Not saying 305Bhp is bad, But for so long? 2000-2002 280Bhp, 2002-2006 305Bhp, 2007-2014 Same.

Theres nothing drastic about the looks, or the bhp, But at least its not a hatchback, And It is nicely priced, £28,995! That is a spectacular price for a road going rally car with excellent abilities.

@Hans

Available to magazines, And available to the public aren't the same.

It's look like not just Subaru Japanese fans that feel disappointed. Most of young people who own Subaru WRX in Japan tune their car to produce at least 400 hp because they were tired to see same powered car every time Subaru release new WRX model.

Seriously, when are they going to increase it's HP?.... It's been 300hp for years.


User avatar

Hans  3y ago

@ BR2 Subaru presents it already for car magazines.


User avatar

BR2+  3y ago

It is nothing new, Im also tired of the same bhp, WHEN will they try something new? There just like Aston and Porsche(Except they actually give there cars power)

@Hans

..Considering the car isn't out, even for a test drive, No, He didn't.

@BR2+: 350 horsepower sounds good, 305 horsepower is a lot, but with the Subaru Impreza WRX STI, it's nothing new.


User avatar

Hans  3y ago

My friend was test driving this car and it is very the same to drive than last gen. It have just more electric shit staff in AWD system.


User avatar

BR2+  3y ago

Thats why the driving dynamics of this car are different then the last generation right? Thas why this car is better and funner to drive then the last while having the same power and each gen gets better right? Bring your biased somewhere else.


User avatar

Hans  3y ago

Every generation of 911 enter revolution to performance and tech so it's very different than this shit car. It drive the same and it's the same overall. They change only how it looks. It is a fail car.


User avatar

BR2+  3y ago

No kidding, 350Bhp 345Lbft from a TurboCharged 2.5L F4 would have been good, Tired of this 300Bhp for the last 14 years bullshite.


User avatar

Shaggy  3y ago

I think it's about time they add some horsepower.


User avatar

BR2+  3y ago

Don't particularly care for the looks,(Thought the last gen looked much better) But at $35,000 Usd, There isn't many cars that can trump this for what you get under $40,000, Not many at all.

Well i will tell You the shit:
I prefer work out, well calibrated car, than new construction with many mistakes.
That boxer 4 was long time one of the best engines of the world. Sure i wish for bigger, more powerfull engine, but, if i have so good, proven engine im ok with this.
Same with the suspension and AWD system.
Now after WRX reviews im pretty sure that new WRX STi despite almost the same numbers will be better car to drive and better all around machine.
Sam as with the 911 - evolution is sometimes better than revolution.

The engine remains the same as the outgoing one.

What Subaru claims to be "brand new" is the suspension. But is that much of an improvement for performance?

Subaru also claims the cabin is now much more equipped.

"I just hope Mitsubishi doesn't get rid of there Evolution because of this Hybrid and MPG bullshite."

Agreed. However, Mitsubishi reports they are preparing the REvolution of Evolution... Hopefully there will be significant power bump over Evo X, no matter what engine configuration will be offered, cause I'm kind of tired seeing identical power ratings for decades.

I just hope Mitsubishi would get things right with future model range. While the current is absolutely unimpressive.


User avatar

BR2+  4y ago

Don't think its that new, Most likely updated like the new 5.0 is. But that's what they need, NEW.

I just hope Mitsubishi doesn't get rid of there Evolution because of this Hybrid and MPG bullshite.

Is the engine like "brand new brand new" - new every nut and bolt?

If yes, it may be a fundamentally much better engine for tuners to come and extract however much power they want.


User avatar

BR2+  4y ago

Im dissapointed as well, Same damn engine and power for the last 14 years, The looks aren't a huge improvement, The last model was gorgeous, Interior is nice, The last pic does not do it justice, Look at those rims, what are they 16s?..

A 2.8L F4 with 400Bhp/400Lb Ft, More rally looks would have been better.

The new long-awaited WRX STI. And again Subaru disappoints me...

Why the hell Subaru does not improve the engine??? Absolutely identical numbers to 10 years old WRX STI.. no performance evolution since 2005, that's a shame...

The design, on the other hand, is a step over the previous gen AND the awfully boring current WRX. Bigger golden BBS wheels, bigger intakes and the huge spoiler . However, I feel in next 3 years the design will already become outdated. The conceptual version was way more progressive and exciting.

I remember times when WRX STI was quite a close competitor to the M3. And what now? The direct competition to the WRX STI are Golf R and Evo X, which is also quite outdated... That's not how it should be.

Why Subaru doesn't making anything radical anymore? If the evolution was progressive, now we could see a wild 400 PS WRX STI, capable to compete with F30 M3. That would be a perfect Subaru's flagman.
