When Subaru chose to play things safe with the WRX STi it was a costly mistake. As the have been slow in offering upgrades to the vehicle this has given their rivals enough time and space to catch them up and in some cases to get ahead.
When the Subaru WRX STi first came onto the market it brought with it a 300 horsepower engine. Since this time it hasn’t been upgraded drastically as the vehicle out at the moment offers 305 horses, which is just 5 horses more than some years ago.
While 305 horses is a respectable amount of power, some rivals of the Subaru WRX STi are offering a great deal more. The Ford RS has an engine that offers up 350 horses, so this is way ahead.
Subaru are developing the 2018 Subaru WRX STi but what are they going to do with it? Fans of it are hoping that it will have at least a 2 litre turbocharged engine that can offer up 232 horses. But what do you think?
