Just by looking at the Subaru Impreza WRX STI 4-Door Sedan you may not even notice a difference between this model, and the WRX alone. Our review shows many changes to both models have been shared between the two. The biggest difference in terms of looks is the new wider body frame, with the manly front-end detailing. The lower body of the car has taken on an aggressive look, the exhaust pipes are now quad-tipped, and the fenders provide a unique, distinguished look to the overall feel of the vehicle itself. On the inside of the Subaru Impreza WRX STI 4-Door Sedan, you'll notice a familiar style from previous models, but the instrument panel has a new look, the audio system has been upgraded, and trim is darker in appearance.

Based exclusively on the Subaru Impreza compact models of the past, the Subaru Impreza WRX STI 4-Door Sedan has begun to differentiate itself in a variety of ways. The bland look that many reviews noted about this model in the past has been redesigned for 2011. The flared look of the sheet metal, the wide styled fenders, and the entire body itself has taken the design to a whole new level. Unique in appearance now, the similarities between the former Impreza compact models has been diminished significantly. Our review congratulates Subaru on finally changing up it's bland look of the past.

When it comes to the engine tuning, the Subaru Impreza WRX STI 4-Door Sedan may not be optimal for the casual driver. Based on performance reviews, the engine works itself into a frenzy as it approaches the red line, but at lower RPM's it appears to fall flat. Unless your an aggressive driver in general, the STI may be an uncomfortable feel for people who are more inclined to a casual acceleration outcome.

Although the WRX and STI have their similarities in terms of design and looks, our review of the specifications showed they're worlds apart. This fact results in a completely different driving experience when you get behind the wheel of the Subaru Impreza WRX STI 4-Door Sedan versus any WRX model.
