The Subaru WRX STI S209 might be battling with the brand new Toyota Supra on the 2019 Detroit Auto Present on the subject of grabbing eyeballs.
Past doubt, the brand new Toyota Supra would be the greatest draw on the 2019 Detroit Auto Present. However we’re certain that followers of Subaru might be extra turned on by the sight of the all-new Subaru WRX STI S209 than the Supra resurrection. Subaru has been variety sufficient to drop a teaser picture forward of the large reveal. We’d have beloved to have a pair extra studio lights in “ON” state earlier than the press button on the digital camera was pressed although.
However hey, teasers are alleged to tease and never reveal the whole lot in a single go, and from that perspective, this can be a neat one. Although quite a lot of the small print are hidden cleverly within the shadows, we do get a good thought of the Subaru WRX STI S209 being heavy within the aero division, full with an enormous rear wing. And that occurs to be a lot bigger than the spoiler sported by the Kind RA. It’s arduous to disregard the dive planes as properly.
Every thing else is a thriller till the S209 reveals itself in just a few days from now at Detroit. We anticipate it to come back with higher brakes, adjustable suspension setup, together with a beneficiant hike in energy and torque in comparison with the usual STI which churns out 305 hp and 280 lb-ft. The S208 which was a JDM-only affair got here with 324 hp and 319 lb-ft. So the S209 will pack extra grunt than its predecessor for certain.
This automotive goes to create sufficient noise within the US market. Subaru had been stingy so far as releasing particular version WRX STIs within the North American market is worried. The arrival of the WRX STI S209 goes to alter that for the great.
