Clickhereto read our first drive of the updated 2011 Subaru WRX STI.
For 2011, the Subaru Impreza WRX gets new bodywork, wider wheels and tires, stiffer rear subframe bushings, and…not much else. We’re not complaining. We had a chance to drive the latest WRX on the back of the 2011 WRX STI launch, and we found its intra-family struggle with the STI further muddied.
Yo, Dawg, I Heard You Like Width
The WRX continues to be available as a sedan or a five-door hatchback. Both body styles are wider, claiming the bodywork of the STI hatch and new-for-2011 STI sedan. The flared fenders carve out room for wheels and tires widened one inch over their 2010 counterparts—the rubber measures 235/45-17 at each corner, up from 2010’s 225/45-17. Track increases by 1.3 inches in front and 1.5 in the rear. The STI’s quad exhaust outlets show up in back as well. Complete review on www.caranddriver.com, by JON YANCA
