Subaru WRX STI is the iconic WRX, flexed to scary good proportions. The ultimate in turbocharged performance, the WRX STI delivers 221kW of power, 407Nm of torque and a road-gripping low centre of gravity. No wonder it has dominated Australian motorsport since 1996.
As well as phenomenal power, speed and handling, you’ll enjoy a new level of comfort and sophisticated tech at your fingertips. With all the pure performance WRX STI is famous for, this is a car for drivers who live for the road.
The adrenaline pumping WRX STI is so scary good, calming down afterwards is the hardest part. Book a test drive today to experience it for yourself.
As well as uncompromising exhilaration and effortless control, the Subaru WRX STI is eye candy on the inside and out. With an STI sports mesh grille, 19" alloy wheels, tail pipe covers, yellow brake callipers with the STI logo, an optional rear spoiler and the STI’s signature colour scheme – black with red stitching in the body-hugging sports seats, the silhouette is unmistakable.
Subaru WRX STI Premium adds tech and innovative features, like Subaru’s Vision Assist technologies, for the driver’s driver. Incorporating features such as Blind Spot Monitor, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Side View Monitor, Lane Change Assist and more, these proactive technologies add to the long list of 5 star Subaru safety attributes.

Our All-Wheel Drive philosophy greater balance and control. That's the confidence you get from our unique Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive System, which delivers the drive distribution to all four wheels, all the time. Every Subaru WRX has an innate sense of balance from the ground up, thanks to a near perfect symmetrical layout.
Our famous Subaru Boxer engine while most engines stand vertically, ours lay flat. The famous Subaru Boxer engine delivers handling like no other engine can. Sitting horizontally in the engine bay, it moves like a boxer’s fists with a punch and counterpunch action. Lightweight, low and flat, it makes for perfect balance and a much lower centre of gravity. It creates less noise and vibration too. All of this means better on-road handling for you. More stability. More performance. More fun. And a more confident drive.
Every Subaru is fitted with advanced engine immobilisers and the DataDotDNA®1 Theft Deterrent System. Microscopic dots are laseretched with each vehicle’s unique Vehicle Identification Number – making it a less attractive target for thieves.
