It is looking as though Subaru didn’t really have any intention of keeping ahead of competitors. When the Subaru WRX STi first came onto the market it offered up an engine with 300 horses and not much has changed over the years in this respect. Due to this the competition has caught up and now it looks as though Subaru is going to be left behind.
The 2018 Subaru WRX STi badly needs to get exterior upgrades as the design it offers now has been around for many years.
Fans want to see a new design with the 2018 version and they want an engine upgrade as the vehicle offers up 305 horses at the moment. This means that it falls behind the Ford Focus RS, which offers up 350 horses.
We did hear that the 2018 Subaru WRX STi might arrive with a turbocharged 2 litre engine and if that should happen the vehicle should be able to offer up around 323 horses. This may or may not be enough to keep Subaru in the competition for the time being.
