Subaru made a big mistake when they chose not to offer fast upgrades with the Subaru WRX STi. This has left them in a precarious position as it has allowed the completion to catch up and it looks as though they may be left behind.
When the first Subaru WRX STi came out it was offered with 300 horses and since then Subaru haven’t really upgraded it. The model out now offers up 305 horsepower and this is only 5 more than what was offered some years ago.
Of course 300 horses is plenty of power but not when you take into account that the competitors offer up more. The Ford RS has an engine offering 350 horses.
Subaru are in the midst of developing the 2018 Subaru WRX STi and we can only hope that they upgrade it. We would like to see at least 323 horses from a 2 litre turbocharged engine.
