2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STI Front Three Quarters Static Driver 2
During the economic nightmare that was 2009, carmakers watched their sales slide off a cliff -- all carmakers but one that is: Subaru. Instead of plunging sales, 2009 marked the third consecutive year of Subaru sales growth; giving it a record market share in the process. So far in 2010, Subaru has done even better. For 2011, Subaru hopes to keep the momentum going, with updates to its performance side of the brand -- the WRX and STI.

More extroverted exteriors
For the first time ever, the WRX will have the same wide-body styling as the STI on both the five-door hatchback and the four-door sedan. The WRX also gets a new front grille and spoiler, plus redesigned 17-inch wheels that are now eight inches wide. The road-holding ability has been improved by a 1.3-inch wider track front and rear, and stiffer rear sub-frame bushings.
For the first time since 2007, the rally-car star STI will be available as a four-door sedan. It shares the same aggressive wide body as the WRX but under the skin is a much different vehicle. Chassis changes include higher spring rates, larger sway bars, and new "pillow ball" suspension bushings in the front control arms. The new bushings, also called a rose joint, allow for quicker turn-in and crisper overall steering feel. But on our mountain road drive, the steering felt over boosted at times, although it's still an improvement over the 2010 model. The whale-tail deck-lid spoiler returns, but thankfully it's high enough not to block rearward visibility while still producing high-speed downforce. Also new are the standard 18-inch wheels that are four pounds lighter per wheel than the 2010 model.
Grown up interior
Both the WRX and STI have improved interior amenities. Gone are the cheap silver dash accents and the ancient radio technology. For the 2011 model, Subaru finally will offer items such as Bluetooth connectivity with audio streaming, as well as USB, iPod, and auxiliary inputs. Premium options like leather seating surfaces and a moonroof come with the Limited trim level. But the dashboard is still plagued by hard plastics.
No change in power
One of the few things unchanged for 2011 is the powertrain. The STI retains its 305 hp and 290 lb-ft of torque; while the WRX gets 265 hp and 244 lb-ft of torque. Only manual transmissions are offered: a six-speed in the STI and five-speed in the WRX. Subaru does not have technology for a twin-clutch automatic transmission now, but product planners are open to the idea for next generation car. But since Subaru uses in-house transmissions and not off the shelf units from other companies, it might be a while before a dual-clutch gearbox is mounted to a Subaru boxer engine.
Competitively priced
Pricing for the 2011 WRX four and five-door starts at $26,220 including a $725 destination charge; the WRX Premium is $28,220, and the Limited is $29,220. The base four-door sedan STI starts at $34,720, $385 more than a base Mitsubishi Evo. The STI sedan Limited is $38,070, $1665 less than a Evo MR, and $3665 less than an Evo MR Touring. The five-door hatchback starts at $36,720 and now includes the BBS wheels as standard equipment, which was a $2000 option for 2010.

Subaru BRZ Exhaust Teaser Video 2
Subaru is keeping the excitement up for its upcoming rear-wheel-drive 2+2 sport coupe by slowly releasing teaser videos up until its arrival around springtime of next time. The latest video gives us a brief preview of the BRZ’s exhaust note.
Subaru FA20 Engine
The next generation of the Subaru WRX will receive a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine producing about 270 hp. Motor Trend reports that the 2013 WRX’s engine will be based on the new FA20 engine that powers the 2013 BRZ sports coupe.
2012 Subaru BRZ Tokyo Motor Show Front Three Quarter
On the heels of the online unveiling of the Toyota GT 86, Subaru has released details of its version of the rear-drive sporty coupe, the BRZ. We were introduced to the design of the BRZ only recently, with Subaru providing the first glimpse two weeks ago in concept form at the L.A. Auto Show. Now, Subaru has released the particulars of the production version ahead of its scheduled debut at the Tokyo Motor Show. Not surprisingly, the car doesn’t look much different from the concept, and bears a strong family resemblance to its sister cars Toyota GT 86 and Scion FR-S. But a few key details set this sports car apart from its Toyota- and Scion-badged counterparts.
Subaru Impreza S206 With Race Car
Subaru has released another special-edition version of the Impreza WRX STI. Like the previous Impreza R205, the new S206 is a limited-run model with a range of engine and chassis upgrades. Just 300 copies of the S206 will be produced.
KICKER Audio 2012 WRX STI 5 Door
Subaru will showcase several custom cars on its display at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas next week. Among the cars will be record-setting pro rally WRX STIs, all-new 2012 Imprezas showing off dealer-installed accessories, and some Subies tuned by the aftermarket.

Summary
Subaru of America, Inc. (Subaru) is recalling certain model year 2008-2011 Impreza, 2008-2014 WRX and STI, and 2009-2013 Forester vehicles, currently, or formerly, registered in Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin and the District of Columbia that were remedied under recall 14V-311 prior to December 23, 2014. The brake lines may experience brake line corrosion due to salt water splashing on the brake lines through a gap in the fuel tank protector.
Consequences
Brake fluid may leak due to the brake line corrosion and may result in longer distances being required to slow or stop the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy
Subaru will notify owners, and dealers will apply an anti-corrosion wax to the four-way joint connector area of the brake line system, free of charge. The recall began on January 27, 2015. Owners may contact Subaru customer service at 1-800-782-2783. Subaru's number for this recall is WQQ-52. Notes: This recall is specific to affected Forester, Impreza, WRX, and STI customers who had their car remedied under NHTSA recall no. 14V-311 prior to December 23, 2014. Subaru has determined that this remedy was inadequate due to incomplete repair instructions provided to dealers. Affected Forester, Impreza, WRX, and STI vehicles that were not repaired under NHTSA recall no. 14V-311 prior to December 23, 2014 will continue to be processed under NHTSA recall no. 14V-311. Affected vehicles not currently, or formerly, registered in the salt belt states identified in this recall are eligible for repair, at no cost to the customer, upon request.
