Even if the performance-focused WRX STI is no longer in production, Subaru hasn’t given up on sporty products. The new Subaru Forester STI Sport edition comes with a revised suspension and upgraded styling touches to create a more exciting crossover.
The installation of STI-tuned dampers is the main modification difference for this generation of the Forester. Additionally, it receives a set of 18-inch wheels with all-season tires and a dark gray paint.
The body is also available in the following colors: Ice Silver Metallic, Magnetite Gray Metallic, Crystal White Pearl, and Crystal Black Silica. Still on the exterior, the STI emblems can be seen on the grille and on the hatchback.
This edition’s interior features two-tone Nappa leather upholstery in Bordeaux red and Black. On the headrests of the seats and also on the tachometer, you will find more STI logos. The entire cabin features red contrast stitching and also red accents for both gauges.
A 1.8-liter turbocharged boxer four-cylinder engine with 175 horsepower (130 kilowatts) and 221 pound-feet (300 Newton-meters) of torque is the only available choice in the Forester STI Sport. In addition, the only available transmission is a CVT that drives the all-wheel-drive system.
The catch is that Subaru will sell the Forester STI Sport only in Japan later this summer. The company hasn’t announced pricing yet.
