There is a big difference between a Subaru WRX and a Subaru WRX STI. What's the difference? Performance! The STI has far better performance capabilities than the standard WRX.

This engine, while still impressive, can only produce 268 horsepower and 258 pounds-feet of torque. The STI, on the other hand, has a 2.5-liter SUBARU BOXER ® that can reach 305 horsepower and 290 pounds-feet of torque. That is a difference of 37 horsepower!

Now, what is power without control? The STI comes standard with an exclusive Multi-Mode Vehicle Dynamics Control system. This allows you to switch from a normal mode to something with better traction. This is ideal for slippery conditions. While both vehicles sport the classic Subaru AWD, the STI is the only trim level with these configurable modes. If you want more control and performance then you should side with the STI.

When you get going, you want the security that you are going to be able to stop. The WRX does this high-performance brakes. The STI takes it up a notch and comes standard with Brembo ® Performance Brakes. This performance-based braking system uses larger, cross-drilled rotors for a higher-quality braking feel and fade resistance.
