Subaru’s newest sports car, the STI, will make its debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.
The STI is a sporty vehicle that has been around since 2002, when the Subaru WRX and STI were first introduced.
The first model in the STIs line was released in 2006, and Subaru is known for releasing a limited number of the STi.
Subaru is currently selling over 5.5 million of these vehicles, and a new STI comes with a whopping $56,500 MSRP.
If you want to get a better deal on a new Subaru STIs, you should go for the STAs Sportback, which is available in either a four-door or convertible configuration.
The Sportback has a lower curb weight of 3,917 pounds, and the new model has a higher roofline of 3.8 meters (18 feet).
It has a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four engine with a claimed 0-60 time of 6.5 seconds.
The vehicle also has a rear-mounted 3.0 liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with six-speed manual transmission.
The new STIs Sportback is powered by a 2-liter four-pot DOHC inline-six that produces 275 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque.
The WRX comes with an optional 5-speed automatic transmission.
A standard STI starts at $69,900 and starts at just $42,400 with the optional 5.0L four-barrel turbocharged DOHC engine, which produces 345 horsepower and 325 pound-ft of torque at 7,500 rpm.
The car comes with the same 7.5-liter automatic transmission, but it also comes with optional six-speaker audio system.
The price difference between the STs Sportback and the ST’s Sportback Sport comes to $58,800.
You can get the Sportback for $72,000 with the 5.4L turbocharged three-cyliler engine, and you can get it for $74,500 with the 6.2L turbocharger engine.
The 6.4-liter two-barreled DOHC four-stroke engine that powers the Sportbacks Sportback comes with six speed manual transmission, and it comes with Subaru’s optional six speaker audio system, which comes with $6,000 destination fee.
You’ll get the base ST with the ST-sport transmission and optional 6.1L turbocharging.
You get the new STi for $77,000 and the SportBack Sportback with the WRX Sportback.
If Subaru can pull this off, we can see a huge boost in Subaru’s lineup of affordable sports cars in the near future.
As long as the WRs Sportbacks and STi are sold in limited numbers, Subaru will have a ton of STIs that can be had for under $60,000.
The base ST is available with the new turbocharged engine and the standard ST is also available with turbocharged engines and the automatic transmission in the $50,000 to $60.000 range.
It should come as no surprise that Subaru will be releasing a new model for the 2017-2018 model year.
For the first time ever, the 2017 Subaru WRx and STIs will be offered with all-wheel drive, and we’ll be getting our first look at this car.
The 2017 WRx Sportback will debut at next month’s Geneva Motor Shows.
