2018 Subaru WRX & WRX STI | Rally-bred Performance in London, ON
Do you jump at the chance to go pick up milk from the corner store? Do you instinctively take the long way home just for the smooth pavement and hairpin curves? Do you pretend that taking your in-laws to the airport is the Gumball 3000? (Do you know what the Gumball 3000 is?) Then you’ll find kinship with the 2018 Subaru WRX and WRX STI. Life (and the drive) is too short for boring appliance-cars.
Subaru of London, the source for rally-bred AWD performance in London and surrounding Chatham, Windsor, Aylmer, Simcoe, and St. Thomas, knows that there are still those for whom driving is not just to get from place to place. These people belong in a 2018 Subaru WRX and WRX STI. See our extensive new vehicle inventory to find the WRX or WRX STI that gets your heart racing today.
2018 Subaru WRX and WRX STI Exterior
Having been redesigned, the 2018 Subaru WRX and WRX STI continue to refine the Subaru formula. Subaru’s performance duo sport matured and refined sheet metal, purposeful lines that emphasize muscular fenders, angular headlights with HID projectors and LED accents and a choice of 17 or 18 gunmetal rims on Dunlop summer performance tires. And lest we forget, it wouldn’t be a WRX or WRX STI without the intimidating functional hood scoop that feeds cool air to Subarus trademark top-mounted turbo intercooler.
The 2018 Subaru WRX and WRX STI are no-compromise sport sedans that have grown up, just like you. That means, too, that they still love to have fun. See below for the numbers that show what the WRX and WRX STI are capable of.
2018 Subaru WRX and WRX STI Performance Specs
There’s nothing like the feeling of a turbocharged engine accelerating under full boost. The 2018 Subaru WRX and WRX STI give you that sensation in two flavours: hot and extra spicy.
First, the 2018 WRX has a Twin-scroll turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder engine with direct-injection. It produces 268 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque starting at just 2000 rpm. What this means is near instantaneous power generation from low revs. How does achieving 0-100 km/h in 5.4 seconds sound? How does that sound with greater fuel economy at 11.3L/100 km for city driving? Pretty amazing we’d say.
If the WRX isn’t enough for you (which would place you in the 95th percentile of drivers) then the 2018 Subaru WRX STI is your four-wheeled beast. The WRX STI stays to true to its rally-winning roots by continuing the employ of the updated High-Performance turbocharged 2.5L 4-cylinder power plant. The horizontally opposed cylinders provide a low centre of gravity for ultimate cornering proficiency and the Symmetrical Full-time AWD lays down all 305 horsepower to all four corners for tremendous thrust, even when sliding sideways. 0-100 km/h for the 2018 STI? We hope you can handle a blistering 4.8 seconds, because it sure can.
2018 Subaru WRX and WRX STI Interior Features
For the serious driver, form and function are married perfectly in the 2018 Subaru WRX and WRX STI cockpit. It all starts with the steering wheel: arguably the most important feature, as it is what connects you to the road. The thick, leather covered, and flat-bottomed helm transmits all the track information right to your fingertips for maximum steering precision. But the 2018 Subaru WRX and WRX STIs interior isn’t just all business. The purpose-built sport seats provide hours of comfort and support while the available 440-watt 9-speaker Harmon Kardon sound system with Bluetooth smartphone integration gives you access to all your music, so you can have an accompanying soundtrack for your latest driving adventure. Like the Deep Purple song, the 2018 Subaru WRX and WRX STI is a veritable Highway Star.
