2018 STi Limited

by PedroM from NOVA | March 28, 2019

Owned many subies, Outback, Forrester, WRX but it was my first STi. Love the grip, the sound, and the thumbs up I get from other WRX's. Engine is old and the lag is there but just keep it around 4k RPM and you'll be fine.

Fun on a bun

by Disco katana from Indianapolis | March 13, 2019

Four doors and all wheel drive so I was able to justify this purchase to the wife. Super fun to drive. Gas mileage is not the greatest but if that's what you're into you're probably not looking for an sti.

IMPECABLE rare spec

by RobK from Seattle Wa | February 23, 2019

The car is super clean and was well cared for by the previous owner. I had no doubts about it. Value for the price on this exact car is great.

2018 Subaru WRX STI Overview

Subaru's racing-inspired WRX STI features a 305-horsepower, turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. It also includes other high-performance hardware like Brembo-brand brakes and a driver-controlled center differential that's part of the standard all-wheel-drive system.

What's Special

Here's Info on the Regular WRX:
What it is: The Subaru WRX and WRX STI are compact performance sedans with room for up to five people. They have turbocharged engines, performance-oriented all-wheel-drive systems and racy bodywork.

New for 2018
Both the WRX and WRX STI get updated front styling and suspension revisions meant to improve steering feel and ride quality.

The regular WRX gets new sound-deadening measures to reduce noise, a larger center information display and a new Performance Package. Available for the manual-transmission WRX Premium, the Performance Package adds Recaro-brand seats and red-painted brake calipers with Jurid brake pads while eliminating the moonroof to save weight. The WRX STI, meanwhile, gets upgraded Brembo-brand brakes and 19-inch wheels.
