Subaru’s top-tier sport sedan could be the remedy to the lukewarm reception the new WRX received.
At the sides, we expect Subaru to utilise those new (and highly controversial) black wheel arches to set the STI apart from the WRX. As clip-on panels, rather than parts of the guards themselves, the new flares could potentially amp-up visual aggression, with extra strakes up front, and additional vents not seen on the WRX at the rear.
Now, we can’t say for sure if that’s the case until we get out hands on one, but it does open up the possibility of a different rear treatment for the more powerful model. In this instance, we’ve imagined it as taking inspiration from the Viziv Performance STI, with a taller diffuser, and more open faux-venting at the sides.
