The all-new 2021 Subaru WRX STI has been confirmed and there are plenty of speculations swirling about the next-generation model. According to a new report, the upcoming WRX STI is ready to conquer the market later this year.
This model will be refreshed and it will feature plenty of improvements. We have some exclusive photos and the forthcoming Subaru WRX STI looks mean and futuristic. It might use the same engine as the model’s Ascent, Outback, and Legacy. However, this engine will be highly tuned and it might provide at least 400 horses.
2021 Subaru WRX STI Will Use the New Global Platform
The latest 2021 Subaru WRX STI looks refreshed and we like its new matte color. This model, besides that, has received a few cosmetic tweaks this year. Firstly, the next-generation WRX STI will use the new Subaru Global Platform, which underpins many company’s models.
In terms of styling, the forthcoming WRX STI looks sportier than the original model. We can clearly see that the next-gen model took inspiration from the stunning VIZIV Performance concept. The lights are similar, as is the front grille, and partially flared fenders. If you remember this concept was introduced at the 2017 Tokyo Auto show and it took much attention back at that time.
The new 2021 Subaru WRX STI host a sporty cabin that will borrow plenty of cues from the VIZIV concept. We believe that the new model will provide enough room for four seats with a great high central tunnel between them. Besides, the manufacturer will add a modern infotainment system that can be the most likely gesture controlled. From the information that we got, the Subaru will use an all-digital instrument panel and the massive centrally positioned screen.
The Japanese company will also use plenty of high-quality materials and acceptable comfort. According to the company, the new STI will deploy the latest industry- safety innovations. This means that EyeSight Driver Assist Technology will include Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keep Assist, and Pre-Collusion Braking as standard.
2021 Subaru WRX STI Under the Hood
The latest 2021 Subaru WRX STI is the high-performance model that is seeking for power. According to earlier speculation, the new WRX STI would use the latest 2.4-liter boxer-four that also powers Ascent, Outback, and Legacy models.
Obviously, this engine will be highly tuned and it might provide at least 400 horsepower. As we mentioned, the WRX is using the latest Subaru Global Platform. If you remember, the previous STI model makes 260 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque.
Release Date and Price
The new 2021 Subaru WRX STI looks better than ever. This model features plenty of upgrades. Our best guess is that the new WRX STI will debut sometime in 2021.
From many gossips, there’s a possibility it might arrive in the U.S at the same time as in Europe. The base model comes with a great package of features and it cost around $30,000. However, WRX STI can easily touch a $40,000 mark.
