Vehicle Description

The WRX is a very capable sports car in its own right, but this 2012 Subaru WRX STi takes its natural abilities to an entirely new and higher level. Its array of mechanical and aesthetic enhancements came at the hands of Subaru's own motorsports and performance division - think of them as the Japanese equivalent of Rousch or Saleen - so you know they've been done right. The result is an agile handling, killer-looking ride with plenty of power that's going to be dominating the corners for years to come thanks to a recently installed turbo engine. Are you looking for the coolest, quickest, best-looking small import car on the road today? Well, you just found it.

Relatively light usage and consistent shelter leave this stock-spec STi in very good form. It's also had the good fortune to have steered clear of any notable collisions during its lifetime, a fact that's backed up by its clean AutoCheck report. Dressed in WR Blue Pearl paint, it'll stand out in any crowd. Those killer factory body mods made to increase downdraft and improve handling - the wider body, integrated front air dam, big hood scoop, flared wheel arches, and the aggressive-looking, large spoiler in back, to name a few - show a lot of craftsmanship, as if this Sube was intended for the track all along. The paint itself looks great - the coloring is very consistent and the clearcoat provides a strong shine. Quite frankly, for the mileage it's above average quality and can be shown off with great pride at the next cruise-in or track day. The big headlights and auxiliary fog lights in front and the dual-set exhaust tips peeking out just the right amount from the rear diffuser out back set it apart even further from its more commonly encountered Subaru brethren. In our opinion, the STi consistently beats the EVO, Civic Type R, Golf R etc in the appearance department about as frequently as it dominates its competition in the streets and on the track.

Climb in and you'll be surrounded with plenty of evidence that the STi is endowed with more than just external modifications. The sporty bucket seats feature prominent badging and are in great condition, showing no discoloration or signs of creasing, and bright red harnesses help keep the driver in place. It's actually hard to find any real signs of usage anywhere you look - the door panels still appear fresh, as does the carpeting below and the headliner above. The dash area sports a great, aeronautically inspired design, with the clear functional gauges residing in its instrument cluster, with many of the switches and controls residing in the center stack and console that also houses the 6-speed manual shifter. Comfort and convenience features are plentiful, including air conditioning that's blowing strong and cold, power door locks, windows, and mirrors, and an AM/FM/CD stereo that teams with a CD changer for added capacity. Multiple airbags offer an added measure of safety, while the anti-theft device ensures that this street machine never leaves your possession unintentionally. Super clean and loaded, what else could you as for?

Factory upgrades to the drivetrain, braking system and all-wheel drive suspension elevate the STi's abilities to a truly impressive level. Via special tuning, the 2.5 liter 4-cylinder turbo engine packs some serious punch - a full 305 horsepower - while a throaty exhaust system gives it a sound all its own. And fear not the miles, as the engine, turbo, and intercooler were all replaced just a little over 6k miles ago at a very reputable dealership (receipts are provided), so there's plenty of life left in this Sube. It teams with a robust 6-speed manual transmission geared to take full advantage of its enhanced output, while featuring a revolutionary Subaru innovation that matches the elements of the road - the SI-Drive system with three modes: intelligent, sport, and sport sharp. The clutch action is light but responsive and the low-profile shift lever is very easy to maneuver, making this performer a blast to put through its paces. Even in its stock configuration, the STi is incredibly nimble, with stiffened springs and larger anti-roll bars make this beauty an accomplished corner carver. Smooth power steering makes this Sube easy to navigate, while anti-lock power disc brakes at all four corners, with sizable vented rotors in both front and back, bring its set of 18-inch forged alloy wheels wrapped with Bridgestone Potenza tires to rapid, fade-resistant stops.
