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 drivingsports.com.
