2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STI
The 2011 Subaru WRX STI, with its iconic rear wing, receives a new body style this year. Under the hood is a 305 horsepower Subaru Boxer powerplant. Suspension tuning techniques, such as lowering the ride height to 5.9 inches, using stiffer front stabilizer bar and rear springs (the latter by 18 percent), and stiffer subframe bushings, were aimed at improving steering precision to further minimize mid-corner corrections.

Also new are standard 18-inch Enkei aluminum wheels that are 17 lbs. lighter than before, or silver BBS® forged alloy wheels for drivers who like to stand out from the crowd.

Driving Sports TV presents exclusive sights and sounds of the 2011 Subaru WRX STI during testing at the press launch in Aspen, Colorado. Full review coming soon, at

    Its no longer called an Impreza anymore and I suggest seeing it in person before passing judgment. Do some research before going through the trouble of pasting your opinion on multiple reviews on various sights.

    The Impreza sedan before the end of a side profile Corolla, Corolla one, and the tail of a Kia Rio is absolutely horrible. The rear bumper of STIs is stolen from an M5/M6, but it looks good. I can not imagine how they managed to butcher the style so bad Impreza. At least the fender flares that look less like a Corolla and a Corolla as belonging to a young man of 17 years. I like the look of the sedan, but not really different from above, so there is nothing interesting about the new car.

    Is it not time subie redesign this butt plug.It’s ruined a decent looking car and cheapened it looks wise.I know many who have walked from the dealership being unable to pay good money for an ugly STI.
