Favorite cheap fast cars evolved to MY2018. 2018 Subaru WRX and WRX STI grappled their way to the Detroit Motor Show finally giving the buyers a bit more refinement and so much needed glitz. At least on the inside, that is. In that case, we’ll start from the inside where prospective buyers could pick a bigger central display (5.9-inch vs. 4.3-inch before). Also, they’ll enjoy softer materials “thicker door glass, revised door sealing and a foam-filled windshield header beam.” In essence, the outer shell won’t let all the sounds penetrate inside. While this certainly upped the weight a bit and slightly forwarded the WRX (and the STI) from the simple fast car philosophy, it also should invigorate new buyers to think about it when buying a car.
Other finer details in the cabin include cupholders in the rear armrest and power driver’s seat lumbar support for the STI Limited. Eight-way power adjustable Recaro seats now available for the WRX and the STI. In fact, they are standard in the STI Limited and come in a Performance Package for the WRX. Arguably, the Performance Package tends to be the best new thing about the 2018 Subaru WRX.
Not only does it bring cool seats, but also red brake calipers with new brake pads. And it gets rid of the sunroof thingy keeping the weight and the center of gravity down. So, for the purists and those seeking for a 0.00001-second faster pass in front of the neighbor house, this is the business.
