Subaru may have officially dropped the Impreza name from its performance flagship WRX STI, but the formula is as old as the hills: big power, four-wheel drive all-weather grip and allusions to rally glory. Sadly both rallying and the performance car market have moved on somewhat and the WRX STI needs a little boost to entice buyers.
So Subaru is appealing to its traditional fan base with a fully warranted power upgrade from 300hp to 320hp that slices the 0-62mph time to a symbolic sub-five seconds – 4.9 to be precise.
When you’re not enjoying this classic Subaru performance you can appreciate the free upgrade to a Pioneer touchscreen navigation system with full iPod connection and Bluetooth phone connectivity. The removable screen can even be connected to your computer to share routes and other data. This all comes – for April only – at an unchanged OTR price of £32,995.
But, if you’d rather just bag a big saving on a WRX, Savemoneyoncars.co.uk is offering £1,866 off the price of standard STI saloons.
