Subaru chose to play things safe with the Subaru WRX STi but this is something that has cost the car maker a great deal. Due to them being slow when it comes to offering updates it has allowed the competition to catch them up and it looks like they may end up being left behind.
The Subaru WRX STi offers the 300 horse power engine when it first arrived and ever since then the upgrades have been very slow. At the moment the vehicle offers up 305 horse power and this is just 5 horses more than it offered some time ago.
This number isn’t particularly bad, but you do have to take into account that it does happen to be less than what some of the competition offers. The Ford RS for instance offers up an engine that gives out 350 horses.
At the moment Subaru is working on developing an upgrade to the Subaru WRX STi and people are hoping that the upgrade is going to come with the 2 litre turbocharged engine which should offer up 323 horses.
