    2015 Subaru WRX STI Photos Leaked



    Ahead of a planned debut at the Detroit Auto Show next week, photos of the wild new 2015 Subaru WRX STI have leaked out.

    No details slipped out along with the photos, but the car is expected to retain its turbocharged 2.5-liter boxer 4-cylidner engine making around 300 hp.

    As for what we can glean from the photos, the STI comes with all of the usual kit including a wider body, massive rear spoiler and larger wheels. Of course, in true Subaru fashion, those wheels are painted gold and really pop on the trademark blue paint.

    Other upgrades are certain to include beefier brakes, an improved suspension and a more advanced all-wheel drive system from the standard WRX model.

    Who is the demographic this car is targeted to? Maybe I'm getting too old to like big a$$ spoilers. I do like the car overall, though.
    6 speed transmissions are the future

    The price has left young buyers behind and the spoiler is going to turn away the people who can afford it. Maybe there will be an optional, less ridiculous spoiler?

    I also don't think 300hp for the STI model is enough anymore, especially when KIA is going to be at that hp level with a 2.0 liter engine as compared to the STI's 2.5.

    Hey; it's blue! What a surprise

    I don't dislike the styling (minus the spoiler and the gold wheels); and it's always fun to have a rally car around

    Better than the WRX, still wouldn't pay $40k for it.

    Trade the huge spoiler for some classic 5 spoke silver wheels (and one size larger than it has) and I think it would be really, really nice.

    Reminds me of a scaled down Dodge Charger in the front.

    Just Subaru being Subaru... which is refreshing these days. Every other car in the world has gotten bigger, fatter, faster, pricier, etc. with every model year. The WRX line has maintained its purpose and form. Its only gotten heavier to accommodate safety regulations.

    They were never lookers so lets not overreact here. If this WRX was a stunner I think it would bum me out a bit.

    Its a WRX STI... nothing more... nothing less. Thank you Subaru! now where's my hatch?!!!

    Well Said. Subaru is just doing what they do best.

    I do agree with others. I think 300hp is not quite enough. They have had 300hp in the STI since 2002 and the WRX has gone from 220 to 265hp. The new 2015 WRX has more options and is much nicer than the current one, and its getting to the point where it is not worth buying the STI just to get a bigger spoiler, a little more HP, and some suspension upgrades. I am seriously looking into a new WRX, but I cant see myself paying the extra premium for the STI.
