2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STI sedan revealed
Ever since Subaru showcased the new Impreza model, which sported a standard hatchback form, many fans have desperately pleaded for the return of the sedan body form, that made the car so popular in both rallying and on-road use.
While a sedan body form was introduced for the regular and the STI versions, the top-of-the-range Impreza WRX STI was still only available in five-door form. That is, up until now, as for the 2011 model year, the Japanese carmaker has finally introduced a four-door WRX STI, which will balance out the five-door version.
That’s right, for the first time ever, there are two available body styles for the Subaru Impreza WRX STI.
Under the bonnet, they both have the same engine, producing 305 HP and 290 lb-ft of torque, but seeing as how they have different weights, the performance times might be a bit different. Either way, for the 2011MY, both received a stiffer suspension, with overhauled shocks and anti-roll bars, and sit on lighter 18-inch wheels. For those who consider such things, the sedan WRX STI will have two mufflers (four pipes), while the hatch has just one muffler (but still four pipes).
Overall, it’s extremely nice to see a sedan WRX STI joining the lineup alongside the pretty popular hatchback. Check out a gallery of the two models below, while we imagine slapping a yellow rally decal on the side and some gold wheels on the clear-blue sedan.
