Car reviews - Subaru - Impreza - WRX STi sedan
22 May 2002
THE metallic-type finish applied to the centre console and side air vent surrounds brightens the predominantly dark grey cabin of the STi, just as in its fellow Impreza models. The instrument panel is specific to the STi, although it looks the same as a WRX at first glance. On the STi the tachometer takes prominence in the centre of the display with the speedo and odometer/trip meter readouts repositioned to the lower, right-hand side dial. The speedo is still marked for a top speed of 240km/h, but the STi's tacho has a higher redline of 7500rpm, whereas the WRX tops out at 7000rpm.
