Subaru Forester STI and Impreza STI are preparing to debutDecember 25, 2018
The familiar “charged” models with the STI index from Subaru Tecnica International usually impress with their power and dynamic characteristics. However, the upcoming Forester STI and Impreza STI will receive minimal improvements and untouched engines.
Already on January 11, the opening of the next Tokyo Motor Show will take place, in which Subaru will traditionally take part. There are a lot of exhibition samples, but so far the most interesting will be two conceptual innovations of Subaru Forester STI and Impreza STI, built on the basis of serial versions.
Subaru Forester STI Concept will be built on the local hybrid version, which is sold in the summer of 2018. As the power unit is installed “aspirated” 2.0-liter, capable of developing up to 145 horsepower. Together with him works a 14-hp electric motor. The powerplant will not become more powerful, but the company promises to reconfigure the suspension, steering, add a “trendy” body kit, as well as 19-inch alloy wheels and Brembo front brakes with six-piston calipers.
The Subaru Impreza STI Concept will also be built on the basis of the production version, which will be based on the opposed engine of 2.0 liters, capable of developing up to 156 horsepower. In the technical part, the changes are not envisaged at all, but the hatchback will receive new bumpers, door sills, as well as a modified exhaust system with a double socket in the center of the bumper.
Full STI versions while it is not necessary to wait. In all likelihood, more thoughtful modifications will be built on a new generation of cars, which should appear no earlier than 2021.
