    Default 2015 Subaru WRX STI Officially Breaks Cover



    A one-inch longer wheelbase on the new WRX STI helps provide a roomier cabin in the 2015 model. The windshield is more raked than before, with the A-pillar pulled forward nearly eight inches at the base for better forward visibility, aided by a lower dashboard and narrower A-pillars. Rear seat legroom is increased by nearly two inches, and trunk capacity is now 12 cu. ft., up from 11.3 cu. ft. in the previous WRX STI. Subaru claims that with the completely re-tuned high performance suspension–which reduces body roll by 16%, the 2015 WRX STI is best handling, best performing WRX STI. Ever.

    Corolla with a wing - the result of no real competition anymore

    This reminds me of the Subaru sales guy that once said to me "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" when I mentioned the STI is falling behind.

    Looks like more of the same for another generation. Curious to see how well it does with so many more all wheel drive options (and dual clutch transmissions) out there.

    This is the ugliest offering of the STI to date hands down. I also concur, keeping the EJ257 for the 2015 MY is a huge disappointment. They need to get a new power plant and a interior / exterior refresh ASAP to breath some life into this vehicle.

    It will sell. There are enough fanboys out there. Plus, you can't argue with retained value with Subaru that I would argue is the highest or near highest in the industry.

    well it looks like the WRX will outsell the STi seeing that it has a newer engine

    Move along, nothing to see here. Same old EJ257, same old drivetrain, same old AWD system as two generations ago. Only new things being the chassis, exterior/interior and crappy brake based torque vectoring.

    The WRX is actually a far more compelling car as it has the better engine, two transmission options, and the same brake vectoring so the STI is kind of pointless unless you want the wing and badge.

    I'm wondering why they even bothered with a 2015 STi, really pointless. They should have just skipped this year or the next until they have a new engine or something that makes it actually better than the WRX.

    Ehhhh, the interior is damn close to the existing one. This really is a mid-generation refresh more than a new generation itself.

    Sooo.
    WRX makes 270hp on the new 2.0L
    STI makes 300hp on the old 2.5L

    And we pay 20k more for less fuel economy?

    Looks like WRX is much better value this year.

    Can't say I'm surprised at all. It's very fitting that the flagship Subaru is still laggy and a pig on gas.

    HeavyD what is this brake biased torque vectoring? That just sounds like any usual stability control system to me.
