2016 Subaru WRX STI Specs Review: Updates Features

Car Junkie - 2016 Subaru WRX, STI Specs. It's not so long the current Subaru WRX and WRX STI showed their lines off, just no more than 2 years, and now the sports sedans are being gathered in the engineering corner to gain slight but noticeable changes and updated specs. The tweaks are mostly on its driving suit both security and amusement. Some easy to spot, all base WRX and WRX models will be featured a Starlink amusement mode including Bluetooth and a stand-by camera which all are centered on a touch screen capable to display 7 inches of resolution - while some others like Si-Drive, Premium Audio and Satellite Radio, Voice-Activated GPS Navigation, LED headlights and Keyless Access with start-spot buttons are available as none-base WRX and STI trims. And the trim levels itself stay how they were. On another corner, we're waiting for the 2016 BMW M3 to show its upgrades.
Everyone can later only drive a base-spec WRX model with a 6-speed manual transmission, and sure, for WRX Premium and WRX Limited consumers may opt for either the base or an CVT. Especially for the WRX STI, you'll have only one 6-speed manual choice. The outstanding 18-inch wheels are available in the none-base trims as well. To remind anyone on how the STI versions differ from the others, those gorgeous swings, are now a bit smaller than the ongoing. Thanks to that creative changes but the company bravely grow the pricing slightly up. To get a standard WRX now you have to spend up to $26,600 (the MSRP is $26,595) - as well as the standard WRX STI which is priced nearly $34,700 (MSRP $34,695).

In regard to fuel economy, there won't be any improvements at all. All Subaru WRX models stay at 20 MPG/city and 27 MPG/HWY, the same is true to the STI stands at 17 MPG/city and 23 MPG/HWY. Powertrain is still relied on a 2.0L Turbocharged Subaru Boxer 4-cylinder engine generating 268 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque.
