Only offered in hatchback form since 2008, the 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STI has come back to us in a more practical form, as a sedan. Beyond its new sedan body style, the grille was revised, the bumpers are more aggressive, and the fog lights are blacked-out. Differentiating the STI from the lesser WRX is the rear spoiler that enhances stability and helps achieve zero aerodynamic lift.
With 305 horsepower already on tap from the STI's turbocharged flat-four, there wasn't much need for more power, so Subaru's engineers focused on what needed help the most: the suspension and on-road handling. The STI goes further with an even more aggressive suspension to reduce body roll and create more neutral handling. The ride has been lowered and both the front and rear anti-roll bar have been beefed up in diameter by 1 mm. In short, the 2011 STI is not only powerful, but also has improved handling abilities to assist you on the road.
