2009 Subaru Impreza WRX: 265hp + STi tweaks

Yup, that’s right. The new 09 WRX will feature 265hp and 244 lb.-ft of torque from the infamous 2.5 liter boxer. Other updates include a retuned suspenion including stiffer springs, STi tophats, and stiffer swaybars.

Standard tire size is also being updated from 205/50/17 to 225/45/17, which will help create a lower profile. A new aero-package is now standard, which will help add to the aggressive looking nature of the car.

Overall, it seems that Subaru is stepping it up quite a bit with the new WRX. Most recently, this seems to be due to the fact that Mitsubishi is now beefing up their own Lancer Ralliart with 235hp. These two cars are most certainly competitors of each other. Now that the Lancer Ralliart has a turbo, let the games begin!
