Although it has not been officially confirmed yet whether the newest 2019 Subaru WRX STI is going to hit the market in 2019 or later, it seems that this high-performance model has actually been on its way. As far as we have been informed, the fans will be more than satisfied with its visual updates as well as the improvements under the hood.
When it comes to exterior of the 2019 Subaru WRX STI, we must admit that you should not be expecting anything revolutionary to happen. However, you will find some serious changes and updates that will still catch your attention. First of all, it has been said that the new STI will not be using the current platform anymore. Instead, it will be based on the Subaru’s new modular architecture. This model will get stiffer chassis, but it will also use some lightweight materials such as carbon-fiber in order to save some weight. This, as well as its improved aerodynamics, will largely enhance the efficiency, acceleration and overall performance of the new STI. The front fascia will be much more aggressive with angular details. You can expect a bonnet scoop and the slim LED headlight will be redesigned as well. The new WRX STI will be standing on 19-inch alloy wheels. In the back part of the vehicle, you will notice a huge fixed rear wing that will only add up to its race-inspired styling.
Inside the 2019 Subaru WRX STI, you will find an upgraded and spacious cabin. The seats will be comfortable, adjustable and covered with some high-quality materials. They will perfectly accommodate up to five adult passengers. Also, there will be plenty of room for your cargo. Being the next-generation sedan, the new STI will also bring some significant updates in terms of technology. The driver will get a modern dashboard and a larger touch screen in the center console. It will provide the latest infotainment and entertainment system with features such as navigation system, multimedia system and numerous connectivity options for your phones. Safety systems and driver assist features will be included as well, so you can expect blind-spot monitoring, lane-departure warning, automatic emergency braking and others.
According to the information we have got, the 2019 Subaru WRX STI will employ a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that is expected to deliver up to 350 horsepower. It should be mated to a six-speed manual transmission and get an all-wheel drive system as standard, but none of these have been confirmed. It might even get another larger version with a 2.5-liter engine. We expect more information soon, but it is certain that the new Subaru will reduce the CO2 emissions and be more efficient. Main competitor is certainly Toyota GT86, Nissan Silvia S16, Audi TT.
