Subaru WRX vs. WRX STI: Which One Is Right For You?

The Subaru WRX has been a hallmark of affordable performance since the early 90’s. It quickly established a fanatical following thanks to its unique look. It remains one of the last true rally-born cars today.

That rich rally heritage has since been combined with some of the most sophisticated safety and technology features. These features make it the perfect car for getting a dose of fun while going about your daily life. A perfect balance of performance and practicality is hard to find. When you add aggressive sporty styling and all-wheel-drive at this price point, the WRX becomes truly one-of-a-kind.

Subaru WRX vs WRX STI – Which One Is Right For You?
Side by Side Comparison:

What’s New On The Outside

The all-new exterior styling on both vehicles pays homage to Subaru’s racing heritage. It’s a wider, lower evolution of the Impreza (the model that gave birth to both the Subaru WRX and WRX STI) designed to deliver a more aggressive and refined look.

The front is sportier with a solid-looking nose built around the new hexagonal grille. The headlights have been redesigned to emphasize the car’s wider, lower stance. But one thing hasn’t changed. Both the Subaru WRX and WRX STI still come with that distinctive, yet functional hood scoop that’s part of their heritage.

What’s New Under The Skin

Both models have been improved to allow all the power from the Subaru BOXER engines and all the traction available from Subaru’s symmetrical full-time all wheel-drive to be fully realized. The suspension was tuned for improved handling and performance, but also with an eye towards better comfort and reliability. Other changes include stiffer springs, larger diameter stabilizer bars, and dramatically increased torsional rigidity for all suspension components.

Subaru engineers also added a new Torque Vectoring System to improve agility. Essentially, this system senses when you’re turning and applies a small amount of brake pressure to the inner front wheel during the turn. This distributes more of the engine torque to the outer front wheel to improve the vehicle’s cornering capabilities.

What’s New Under The Hood

First the WRX. It has the biggest change under the hood with the introduction of an all-new, twin-scroll, turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder BOXER engine that boasts improved acceleration, better fuel efficiency and lower emissions. It generates an impressive 268 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque.

The new WRX STI keeps the 2.5L turbocharged BOXER engine that makes it so popular, but it has been retuned for 2015 to deliver even better throttle response. Horsepower is a chest-pounding 305 while torque peaks at 290 lb.ft.

Both cars come with 6-speed transmissions – all new on the WRX and refined on the STI. The WRX model is linked to a viscous-coupling centre differential that delivers more uniform power distribution for better traction and sportier handling. The WRX STI version has been beefed up to handle the increased power and torque. It meshes with the multi-mode Driver Controlled Centre Differential that enables the driver to adjust the power distribution between the front and rear wheels in order to better match driving conditions or their personal driving style.

The 2015 WRX also gets an optional Sport Lineartronic transmission. It’s an automatic transmission that acts like a manual, so you get the best of both worlds – convenience and driving excitement. It’s a quick-shifting transmission that features paddle shifters on the steering wheel and two different manual modes to suit your mood and/or driving styles.

Finally, Subaru’s intelligent SI-Drive system is now available on all three models. It’s an advanced engine management system that allows the driver to alter the power characteristics of their car to suit their personal tastes and driving styles. The system features three distinct settings ranging from maximum fuel efficiency to maximum power and performance.

What’s New On The Inside

The refinement theme continues inside the all-new 2015 WRX and WRX STI. The overall interior dimensions are larger. That means more leg, shoulder, and elbow room for the driver and passengers. Larger door openings also make it easier to get in and out. Plus higher hip points give the driver improved visibility out the front.

The WRX features a jet-black interior with silver accents, embroidered floor mats, and performance-designed sport seats. Premium cloth upholstery is standard and rich leather upholstery is an upgrade.

The WRX STI’s interior is as sporty as they come – an all-black colour scheme includes red accent sticking around the instrument panel and door panels and STI embroidering on the seatbacks and floor mats. Plus, the seats are reinforced with red leather bolsters that are as functional as they are distinctive.

Both models come with a new 4.3 inch multi-function LCD display that delivers mileage and fuel economy information as well as reading from the turbo boost pressure gauge and the VDC sensor. Slip into reverse and the screen changes to show the image from the rearview camera.

Model Line Up

Both the WRX and STI are available in three models – entry-level, Sport and Sport-tech, all with the same performance. Moving up to the Sport package on both models adds the rear spoiler, a sunroof, automatic headlights, halogen fog lights, and an 8-way power driver’s seat. Go all the way to the Sport-tech model for leather seating, a premium Harman Kardon sound system and a voice-activated in-dash navigation system.

A decision between the Subaru WRX and the WRX STI essentially comes down to driving preference. Although the STI is sure to attract more onlookers, it is intended to be a driver’s car. This is evidenced mainly by a stiffer suspension and lack of an automatic transmission.

Introducing the 2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek

Introducing the 2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek. The most efficient Crosstrek yet.

XV Crosstrek Compact Crossover

XV Crosstrek | Budds' Subaru

Subaru’s compact crossover will be available at Budds’ Subaru this January with more standard performance, safety, and comfort features than ever before.

PZEV Engine

All trim levels will come with the new ultra efficient and emission-friendly PZEV engine. Quite simply this engine saves fuel while saving the environment. The XV Crosstrek Hybrid will use the same engine. It will; however, add an electric motor linked to a hybrid CVT transmission to take fuel efficiency to another level.

The XV Crosstrek will deliver fuel economy figures of 9.1 L /100 km city and 7.0 L /100 km highway (with CVT) and 7.9 L / 100 km city and 6.9 L / 100 km highway (with electric hybrid motor).

Saftey

A rear-view camera will now be included on every trim level alongside Subaru standard safety features such as front dual-stage airbags, driver knee airbag, front seat side-impact airbags and side curtain airbags with rollover sensor. For the first time, Subaru’s preventative safety system, EyeSight, will be available for the Crosstrek.

Lineartronic

The previously mentioned PZEV rated engine is the 2.0 liter Subaru BOXER engine. It supplys 148 horsepower to symmetrical full-time All-Wheel Drive via a five-speed manual transmission or an available second-generation Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). The refined CVT has pre-programmed stepped shifting, making the vehicle feel even sportier and providing an impression of gear ratios. An electronically managed continuously variable transfer clutch actively controls torque distribution in response to driving conditions and wheel slippage.

Interior

Inside, Subaru has significantly upgraded all infotainment and technology features. The audio system found in the XV Crosstrek Touring, Sport and Hybrid models offer an AM/FM stereo with SiriusXM satellite radio, Radio Data Broadcast System, in-dash CD player, 6.2-inch multi-function touchscreen display, Subaru STARLINK connectivity with Aha smartphone integration, Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity and audio streaming, iPod control capabilities, a USB port and an auxiliary input jack.

2015 Subaru Impreza Safety | Budds' Subaru

The Subaru safety standards you’ve come to expect as an annual IIHS Top Safety Pick, are in the form of dual-stage front airbags, driver knee airbag, side-impact front airbags, side-curtain airbags and more. The new Impreza will also now feature a backup camera with all models. For the first time, Subaru’s EyeSight adaptive cruise-control and collision-avoidance technology, will be available for the Impreza (see video).

Engine

Also new in 2015, is the addition of the Partial Zero-Emission Vehicle (PZEV) rated 2.0-litre SUBARU BOXER engine (PZEV refers to emission quality). The engine will produce 148 horsepower at 6,200 rpm. Not only are you saving the environment, you’re saving plenty of fuel as well. The Impreza will continue to deliver the best fuel economy of any gas-powered all-wheel drive passenger car available: now 8.5L/100km, 6.4L/100km highway, and 7.59L/100km combined. For perspective, The Impreza has better fuel-efficiency than the Ford Focus and the Kia Forte, both of which are 2-wheel drive.

It’s Been A Wild (But, Safe and Reliable) Ride!

We have been immensely proud to represent Subaru’s safety, reliability, and practicality, over the years, not to mention its’ growth. However, it’s now official: Subaru Is Sexy.

Subaru Growth | Budds' Subaru

Subaru is seeing it’s best growth ever as it aims for its 6th consecutive annual sales record. This is the only brand to achieve that feat. Subaru has also marked 33 straight months of sales growth. In response, the Japanese automaker has re-adjusted its 2014 sales forecast to 500,000 vehicles, which is a major milestone. Subaru ranks ahead of GMC, Volkswagen, and Mercedes-Benz in year-to-date sales, just to name a few.

Subaru’s rock-solid reputation has been the foundation for success across the lineup, but exploding demand for compact and mid-size “crossover” SUVs has been the real catalyst.

The segment-leading Subaru Forester leads the pack with 105,356 units sold, and the Subaru Outback trails only slightly with 85,951 units sold.
