Up to now Subaru have been playing things safe with the Subaru WRX STi but this is something that has cost them a great deal. As they have been slow with the updates they have given their rivals plenty of time to catch up with them and get ahead. This may mean that Subaru is the one that is getting left behind.
When the Subaru WRX STi came to the market it brought with it an engine of 300 horses. Since that time it has received very little upgrades and this has left the vehicle offering just 5 horses more at 305 horses.
This isn’t a bad amount of horsepower of course, but then it does happen to be less than what other rivals have been offering. The Ford RS for instance offers up the 350 horsepower engine. Subaru is working on the new version of the Subaru WRX STi and when it comes out fans are hoping that the vehicle is going to offer up the 2 litre turbocharged engine with 323 horses, at least.
