The 2017 Subaru BRZ STI is over there. It offers carbonfibre aero parts as well as a tempting possibility of more power from its boxer powertrain.
Subaru hinted at the vehicle on social media, by simply offering an image of the BRZ with STI-branded carbonfibre rear wing, featuring an inscription ‘Stay tuned…6/8/17. #STI’.
It feels like the first part of the text points out to a higher state of tune for the BRZ’s 2.0-litre flat-four motor.
The regular WRX sports saloon, currently unavailable in Great Britain, generates up to 268bhp, while the WRX STI makes 305bhp, which is a soar of nearly 14%, due to turbocharging, direct injection and also Dual Active Valve Control.
The standard WRX’s motor happens to be a developed variant of the BRZ’s, accordingly, it’s quite real that the changes would be applied to the BRZ STI.
The 2017 Subaru BRZ STI is worth from £25,040, and the STI model could make customers shell out more than £30,000.
