2015 SUBARU WRX STI: A top star in the Subaru exhibit during the 106th edition of the Chicago Auto Show, Feb. 8-17, 2014, is the all-new 2015 Subaru WRX STI. With bold new aero body design, and stiffer, more agile chassis, Subaru’s flagship model comes powered by a 305 horsepower 2.5-liter turbocharged Boxer engine, teamed exclusively with a specially reinforced six-speed manual gearbox. Unique to this model is the rally-bred drivetrain and symmetrical all-wheel drive handling. New for the 2015 WRX STI, is Active Torque Vectoring, Multi-Mode Driver Controlled Center Differential, Multi-Mode Vehicle Dynamics Control, and a Brembo performance brake system with Super Sport ABS. A bolder front design makes the 2015 WRX STI look ready to devour the road. The “nose-cone” configuration combines the grille and bumper cap into one unit ahead of the hood, which for the 2015 model is made from aluminum to reduce weight over the front of the car. Narrower headlights flank the Subaru hexagonal grille with a more powerful stare thanks to new standard LED low-beam headlights. The special hood, fenders, doors and quarters, bumpers, headlights and LED taillight clusters convey the WRX STI identity. A full aerodynamic body package includes the large trunk spoiler and a rear diffuser. As on previous WRX STI models, a functional hood scoop supplies the intercooler with fresh air, and in the 2015 model it is set more deeply into the hood to provide better forward visibility. Within the driver-focused, five-passenger interior, is Alcantara seating surfaces accented by red and black bolsters and red stitching. The driver sits behind the flat-bottom steering wheel in whiplash-reducing performance-design seat, and for the first time in a WRX STI, availability of a harman/kardon premium audio system. If you need to haul some cargo, the new WRX STI provides an EPA trunk volume rating of 12.0 cu. ft.
