2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STI, what car reviews, Let us begin by charting the changes. Most noticeable is that the STI, previously only available as a hatchback, it comes as a sedan, and $ 34,720 (including destination) is $ 1,000 cheaper than WTI as last year. (The 2011 sedan is $ 36,720, $ 1,000 over 2010.) I generally prefer hatchbacks, but in the case of the Impress for 4-door is even nicer car. Besides, Subaru says the sedans more aerodynamic, so it tops out at 158 MPH – 3 MPH faster than the hatch – which means you can work faster. The sedan also comes in a new Limited model with leather seats and a sunroof, and all STDs offer an improved navigation system with Bluetooth phone and audio.
There are more changes under the skin stiffer springs, thicker sway bars, lighter wheels and new suspension designed to distribute buses reaction without excessive increases harshness. It’s a rough ride. But it’s actually the type of ride you’d expect from this class of vehicle. You want to feel bumps in the road, the beginning of the slide, the way the car hugs the curves in the road, the traction of the tires make when accelerating quickly from a corner, or you can push harder in that curve, whether or not you need to withdraw and to save your skin (and the car!). In short: you need to feel how the car reacts with the ground.
