2018 Subaru WRX STI

So you wanna be a rally star? The WRX STI is your ride. Made for four-door fury, the STI gets its grunt from a 305-hp, 2.5-liter turbocharged four, tied to a six-speed manual and a sophisticated torque-vectoring symmetrical all-wheel-drive system. For model year 2018, it’s the beneficiary of stronger Brembo brakes, a reworked instrument cluster, and headlights that respond to your steering — key when you’re bombing down a gravel forest road sideways.
