Positioned to be clearly visible with minimal distraction as you drive, this display shows you a variety of information that puts you in touch with your vehicle. It can even show a digital boost gauge that lets you keep tabs on your turbocharger. 





The vital driving information you need is only a glance away with these crisp, easy- to-read gauges. Fire up your WRX STI and the needles perform a full sweep to get your ready for the drive. A 3.5-inch LCD display located in the centre of the array can be customised to put the information you desire right in your direct field of view. 




MULTI-MODE Driver’s Control Centre Differential    

The DCCD allows you to dial in the centre differential locking of the WRX STI. It adjusts both an electromagnetic multi-plate transfer clutch and mechanical locking of a Limited Slip Differential to apportion the torque to the wheels. Auto Mode finds the ideal power distribution for changing conditions, Auto [+] keeps more power up front for increased traction, and Auto [-] puts more power to the rear for tighter cornering.



Subaru Intelligent Drive (SI-DRIVE) lets you adapt the driving character of the WRX STI to your needs or desires. While in Intelligent Mode [I], acceleration is smooth with an eye toward optimal efficiency. Select Sport Mode [S] for linear response, and versatile command of every condition. To extract the maximum response from the turbocharged engine, switch to Sport Sharp Mode [S#]. It gives you the most direct throttle response and precise rev control across the entire rpm range. 

Designed to let your instincts take the lead.

In high performance driving, every flick of your wrist or dart of your eye counts. The interior of the WRX STI is designed to heighten your driving experience by putting the controls and information you need where you expect to find them. The new D-shaped steering wheel offers linear response and convenient controls for vehicle systems. Crisp electroluminescent gauges deliver information with hardly a glance, whilst the new Multi-function Display can be modified to offer wide variety of vehicle data, including a digital boost gauge. And to help keep you in position to take control, the front seats feature deep bolsters and Alcantara®* inserts.

The WRX STI gives you ease and efficient use of space.

Everything about the WRX STI's design—even the compact engineering of its rear suspension—goes into making it a car you’ll love to live with. With a wide luggage area, it handles large cargo with little effort. What’s more, 60/40 split rear seats easily fold individually or together with just one, so you can easily take on longer items, too. Its design even makes getting in and out easy. The WRX STI is flexible, without requiring you to be. This versatile vehicle can take on five passengers and five carry-on suitcases at the same time. The nearly square rear gate opening eases loading, and the rear seats fold level with the load floor, whilst cargo hooks help you secure your belongings.

Bigger ideas for little spaces

Beyond roomy, the WRX STI offers a place for life’s little things, too. Pockets in each door include bottle holders. The centre console includes cup holders, a tray, and a padded armrest that opens to reveal added storage and a 12-V power outlet.


Years of heated competition, extensive testing and advances in materials and engineering, have combined to inspire a new chassis design for the WRX STI. Exceptional stability and lightning quick response were central to this development, as high-tensile steel was employed throughout the frame to increase its torsional rigidity and better control the vehicle’s weight. What’s more, the suspension was tuned to exacting standards with stiffer stabilisers, quicker spring rates, and improvements like stiffer pillow ball bushings. This expertly balances stiffness and compliance to create immediate response and an unprecedented connection between driver, car and the road. 


AWDSymmetry gives you balance. Balance gives you stability and control. That is why Subaru has been developing and perfecting the Symmetrical AWD system since 1972. Matched with the SUBARU BOXER engine for an almost perfectly symmetrical layout, it maximises the power delivery with exceptional traction and generates balance and stability for total control in almost any condition, giving you the confidence to delight in every mile.




Exceptional traction makes acceleration feel immediate and exhilarating.

And the symmetry helps the WRX STI deliver responsive handling because it’s more stable during cornering, for a unique feeling of 

control at all times.


In bad weather, or in the precious seconds it takes to react to a sudden situation, the symmetrical drivetrain of the WRX STI—with almost total side-to-side balance— provides the stability, agility and traction to help you avoid danger when it steps into your path.


The more your tyres are engaged with the road, the more control you have. Power is routed to all four tyres all the time in order to maintain a strong connection to the road, maximising handling and control.


Whether it's been a rough-road journey or the daily commute, you can rest assured that your WRX STI is constantly vigilant and adapting to ensure that both you and your occupants, with their belongings,are delivered as safely and securely to their destinations as possible.



Expertly balancing sporty handling with a comfortable ride, the WRX STI's suspension is fine-tuned for everyday satisfaction. In the front, rigid struts enhance precision, and give the steering an accurate and lively feel. A long stroke and wide tread provide an ideal balance of stable handling, good grip, flat cornering and a composed ride. And for more accurate tracking of the rear wheels, a support arm added.


A refined rear suspension will reignite your passion for driving. A double wishbone rear suspension handles rough roads and sharp corners with poise and precision. Whilst pillow ball bushings improve tyre contact for better traction and to reduce understeer for a more accurate feel whilst cornering. The suspension has also been stiffened for quicker response to driver input.

Built for drivers. Driven to be amazing.

No other car drives like it, because nothing else is built like it. Every Subaru is engineered with a deep commitment to you as a driver. Each has the power to put your mind at ease, and to enhance every aspect of your driving experience. The engineering insights that make a vehicle a Subaru make it reassuring, more versatile and more exciting. That’s why, among other advanced performance technologies, the all-new 2015 WRX STI is built with the one-of-a-kind Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system at its core. As its balanced, low-centre-of-gravity drivetrain bites the pavement with all four wheels, acceleration intensifies, your confidence expands, and every corner ignites a new passion for driving.

Third Generation Boxer Engine.

Under the aluminum bonnet of the all-new WRX STI sits the source of its breathtaking performance. A 2.5-litre turbocharged SUBARU BOXER engine generating 300 PS and 407 Nm of torque provide electrifying acceleration.

But it’s performance that you can modify with SI-Drive, which allows you select three different levels of response—from smooth and efficient, to totally unhinged. The engine also benefits from the Dual Active Valve Control System (Dual AVCS), which helps produce a flat torque curve across a wide rev range. And you harness that performance with a quick-shifting, natural- feeling 6-speed transmission. 

Take control and take it to the limit.

From the moment your first fire it up, the all-new WRX STI all but begs you let it loose on whatever curvy stretch of asphalt you can find. Its frame has been made 40%* more rigid for unbelievable controllability, and to make the most of every bit of ferocious grip coming from its exceptionally balanced Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive powertrain. Its track-tuned suspension is more responsive than ever with more rigid pillow ball bushings, an increased spring rate, stiffer front and rear stabiliser bars and additional rear subframe supports. This torsional rigidity and stability has reduced body roll by 16%* and has helped increase lateral acceleration by 7%*. It also features the Multi-mode Driver’s Control Centre Differential (DCCD), which allows you tailor the torque spilt between the front and rear wheels. 


This new technology helps make handling more precise, whilst allowing you to push your vehicle closer to the limit. As you enter a corner and lateral g-forces take hold, the system can route power to select wheels to help you keep your intended line. This means your WRX STI responds to your steering input more immediately and more engagingly.




Because the engine block and its location enables a flatter profile and sits lower in the WRX STI's chassis, the car’s overall stance is more stable, blessed with greater balance and is more resistant to body roll than many other designs. It is no error of judgement and Subaru owners know that the overriding appeal is significant.


Throughout the rev-range the Boxer engine delivers immediate, responsive power smoothly, in a refined manner and without effort. The pistons lie flat and work against each other to reduce vibrations, aspects that make the ride as smooth and comfortable as it is exciting and engaging for the driver. The long-term benefits are myriad but include reduced strain and stress on car, driver and passengers, factors that enhance overall safety.


The engine’s ‘flat’ configuration is inherently rigid and self-balancing, while generating less vibration than 'V-type' or 'in-line' piston engines, for greater durability and more dependable performance.

The confidence you need to seek the excitement you desire.

As you take the WRX STI to the edge, you’ll have the peace of mind of knowing Subaru has given it exceptional safety characteristics. This includes the protection of a more resilient Ring-shaped Reinforcement Frame and new driver’s-side knee air bag. With the assistance of Multi-mode Vehicle Dynamics Control featuring Active Torque Vectoring, and powerful Brembo* brakes, your vehicle can aid you in avoiding danger before it strikes. And your power to avoid it is enhanced by the one-of-a-kind poise and grip of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive.

Multi-mode Vehicle Dynamics Control helps protect you from a detected loss of control whilst offering three distinct modes for flexible performance. Normal Mode fully engages the system. Change to Traction Mode to raise the threshold for intervention, thereby allowing you to maximise your control and the torque delivered to the wheels. You can even select Off Mode to deactivate Vehicle Dynamics Control. 


In a corner, or while making an evasive manoeuvre, Vehicle Dynamics Control compares the driver's intentions with the vehicle's actual movements, based on both steering and braking, as well as the lateral acceleration and yaw (rotational forces) inherent at the time. The system then adjusts engine output and braking of individual wheels, as needed, to assist in keeping the car close to its intended original course.



Many of the same features which make a WRX STI fun to drive also help keep its occupants out of harm’s way. The stable, responsive handling of its Symmetrical AWD is enhanced by the low centre of gravity of its SUBARU BOXER engine. Its standard Vehicle Dynamics Control System, surefooted suspension, antilock brakes and quick steering help you maintain control.


The WRX STI offers front SRS^ airbags, front-
side and curtain SRS^ airbags, and also the new knee airbag, which helps protect the driver’s lower extremities. 


The Ring-shaped Reinforcement Frames strengthen the passenger cabin from the roof to the doors, pillars and floor. This design helps to divert and dissipate impact energy away from the occupants in a collision. The frames for the WRX STI feature high-tensile steel designs that are strong and rigid, yet light in weight.


The ultimate name in high-performance braking, Brembo* produces uncompromisingly powerful brakes that can take the punishment of hard driving. Large calipers and vented discs will give you an extra level of precision and control as you take your WRX STI to the limit. 


The WRX STI features technologies that improve braking, and
your safety. Brake Assist helps you fully engage the brakes in an emergency. And the new Brake Override can help you avoid a potential hazard by overriding the gas pedal input if both the brake and gas pedal are pressed at the same time. 


Occupant protection is a high priority in every element of the WRX STI— from major features like the seats, to small designs like the pedals. Its body structure is intelligently strengthened in critical areas to help minimise the impact energies that reach the cabin. Whilst an array of advanced interior safety features help protect occupants directly.


Height adjustable front seatbelts feature pretensioners hold passengers firmly in place. And the WRX STI features whiplash-reducing front seats and energy absorbing head restraints that can help better protect front occupants from injury during a rear collision. Front SRS^ airbags are standard on all models, also available with front-side, curtain, and knee SRS^ airbags. And a tether and ISO-FIX anchors—facilitate installation of compatible child safety seats.
