The high-performance 2015 Subaru WRX STI stands out from previous editions by conforming more to the exterior style of the regular WRX, albeit with some notably aggressive cues. The sedans share similar front and rear styling, fender flares and tailpipe treatments. Still, there's no mistaking the all-wheel-drive STI thanks to its functional hood scoop, which channels air to the intercooler, and giant rear wing. The STI also rocks standard 18-inch cast alloy wheels, summer performance tires, and LED headlights and taillights, while the special blue Launch Edition of the STI has gold, forged alloy wheels.
The performance theme continues inside with Alcantara simulated suede sport seats with black and red leather bolsters standard in the regular STI and black with blue bolsters in the Launch Edition. Other flourishes include a flat-bottom leather steering wheel and aluminum pedal covers. Check out the gallery below.
