Subaru STI S209 Coming Late This Year
The limited-edition Subaru STI S209, the first-ever S-line STI product produced exclusively for the U.S. market, is powered by a reworked version of the EJ25 2.5-liter turbocharged BOXER engine with a larger turbine and compressor, delivering an estimated 341 horsepower and is mated to a close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission. A recalibrated SI-Drive system offers three modes: Intelligent (I) for improved fuel economy and smoother power control; Sport (S) for optimized power balance between response and control; and Sport Sharp (S#) for achieving the best acceleration times. Only around 200 units of the STI S209 will be built exclusively for the U.S. Pricing will be announced closer to the on-sale date in late 2019.
