Test Drive - 2015 Subaru Impreza STi

The Subaru Impreza STi has a reputation for being one of the world's fastest road and competition cars. This reputation has been built since the Impreza's birth in 1992 with already established credentials from the successful Legacy RS. The forth generation of Impreza STi has been exciting Subaru Docklands' customer's since April this year. The STi Melbourne facility offers expert advice on current and past models. "This new model has created a lot of interest", says New Car Sales Manager Dale Baxter. "Its an exciting design and the price point is even more exciting". With so much good press, especially on its radical styling, I certainly looked forward to the opportunity to drive and photograph this new STi.

The aggressive front styling and sloping a-pillar gives the car a very athletic appearance. The pumped wheel arches similar to the current generation of Liberty/Legacy give the impression the wheels are small-ish.

Whether you require these services for your company, publication or personal promotion - a model or motor sport team needing promotion.

Agressive, not offensive! Test drive of the Subaru BRZ STi

The Subaru BRZ and Toyota 86 is perhaps the most unique collaboration in recent decades. Subaru is well known for its boxer engine and all-wheel drive. Toyota is well known for losing its soul and excitement with concentration on cars designed for A-B use. Subaru's lack of all-wheel drive and Toyota's injection of excitement with not much of a difference between the two has a lot of people talking... and giving their opinion. Here's mine.

When I approach the Subaru BRZ S a smile grows on my face. Shining silver with the black S kit including black STi wheels, it looks aggressive but retains good style unlike the Toyota GT86 Aero styling. STi Docklands expert Dale asks if I'd prefer manual or auto. Manuals are fun and pretty straightforward. Automatic transmissions in sports cars are a great option for suburban and city driving in thick traffic. I was keen to experience how the automatic performs its changes up and down so I chose it.
