SUBARU UPS THE ANTE IN VEHICLE TECHNOLOGY BY GIVING STI DRIVERS MANAGEMENT OF STABILITY CONTROL, CENTER DIFFERENTIAL SETTINGS, AND ENGINE MAPPING.
The 2008 Subaru Impreza WRX STI has a heritage of power and control. Previous models have been the foundations for countless racing victories and championships. The new WRX STI promises the same with its 305-horsepower, turbocharged, intercooled Boxer engine and six-speed manual transmission (only!).
But there’s more. Power and control incorporate enhanced technology. As suggested by new switchgear on the dashboard and center console and by markings within the instrument cluster’s center-mounted tachometer, a driver has some things to learn before wringing out the most from the car.
Today’s electronics now allow the driver to tinker with engine response characteristics, the manner in which the All-Wheel-Drive system fights for traction, and the degree to which braking and engine management help maintain vehicle stability. These capabilities are made possible by standard Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC), Driver Controlled Center Differential (DCCD), and Subaru Intelligent Drive (SI-DRIVE).
