Car reviews - Subaru - Impreza - WRX STi sedan
22 May 2002
THE leather-wrapped Momo steering wheel, gear knob and handbrake lever feature the same red stitching that was used on the last of the previous generation WRX models, but which is missing from the more subdued interior of the current WRXs. The steering wheel adjusts for height (rake) but not reach, although it is still relatively easy for to find a comfortable driving position. There is a rotary switch on each of the steering column stalks - one controls variable instrument illumination (five positions), the other variable intermittent wipers (four positions). The three-button panel on the lower right-hand side of the dashboard normally houses the cruise control master switch and buttons for front and rear fog lights (on RX, RS and WRX versions). On the STi, the fog light buttons have been replaced by a control for the intercooler water spray and a blank button. The floor-mounted internal releases for the boot and fuel filler flap are cable operated. The lower centre console (pictured) features power mirrors controls and the security system key pad.
