Associating rally with Subaru is an understatement; the brand’s rally reputation is accounted for by its successful global brand expansion since the early 80’s through the choice of rallying motorsport. The Subaru Impreza WRX has been the brand’s choice for the World Rally Cross Championship (WRC), claiming numerous titles over the years in the hands of the late Colin Mcrae, as well as the likes of Petter Solberg.
This particular 2015 example is a WRX STi; an ultimate combination of precision driving and versatility. The front-engine, all-wheel drive compact family car is to be considered by every consumer before purchasing a practical yet uncompromised-fun vehicle.
The STi not only sets the benchmark but it has also exceeded it with a 2.5 litre Boxer engine producing 305bhp, Driver-controlled central Differential options, upgraded Brembo brakes, lightweight BBS multi-spoked wheels and a short-throw 6 speed manual transmission.
Driving behind the wheel of the WRX STi, the driver instantly grasps the idea behind Subaru’s rally legacy; it certainly puts a smile on one’s face.
