Subaru Announces the Impreza WRX STi A-Line

subaru-impreza-wrx-sti-a-line_4Subaru has introduced the new Impreza WRX STI A-Line edition and, like an old friend who checks in with you from time to time, it’s always nice to hear from Subaru, isn’t it?

The A-Line is a more accessible, comfy version of the WRX STI meant to attract more distinguishing and less dedicated customers to Subaru. It features Subaru’s 2.5 liter Boxer engine, coupled with a 5-speed automatic transmission trademarked by Subaru as the SPORTSHIFT.

Comfort comes by way of an 8-directional electronically adjustable driver’s seat with optional leather seats and leather trim on the inner door paneling highlighted with silver stitching. A new color, “Satin White Pearl”, is also made available in the A-Line.

But this WRX STI A-Line’s still got the boogie. That 2.5 liter, turbocharged 4-cylinder engine comes with 300 hp and 350 Nm of torque. A single scroll turbocharger helps the engine produce a steady stream of torque within a mid-rev to high-rev range.

And there is lots of technology to keep this Subaru humming with speed and comfort. A Downshifting Blipping Control allows the automatic transmission to have a quick chat with the engine management system to increase engine speed while downshifting gears in order to have as smooth a shift as possible.

The VTD (Variable Torque Distribution) AWD system provides electronic control of torque distribution between the rear and front axles dependent on driving conditions to maintain a keen sense of balance on the road for this WRX STI.

There’s also a Tumble Generation Valve that controls air intake for maximum combustion efficiency under the hood.

Good to hear the new news, Subaru. Hope to see you around again soon.

More pictures after the break.
