Next Subaru WRX STI Banking In On Safety Against Focus RS

By  | 

The arrival of the Ford Focus RS has brought darkness on the Subaru WRX STI. This cannot be helped as the Focus RS is better than the Subaru WRX STI in every department.

Subaru is aware that a brand new WRX STI is needed to make a comeback in the sports segment hence they have commenced working on the next-gen model. The details are not out yet but that didn’t stop Subaru from teasing on the future WRX STI through the latest Impreza.

Subaru said that the Impreza is built on a brand new platform and it will be one that will also get adopted by the WRX STI. The new Global Architecture is said to be 70% stiffer than before and this will make the WRX STI a lot safer. Heck, the WRX STI may end up being the safest sports car to date.

Of course, there will also be those usual upgrades like a more updated design and more power. The question is, will they be enough to surpass the offerings on the Ford Focus RS?
