Subaru WRX STI 2.5 Review
Four door mayhem

I know there’ll be stones hurled for this statement but the life of a motoring journalist isn’t always fun filled and exciting. There are days where time stands still and every word seems a feeble recreation of intellectual flatulence. And then there’re cherished ones when we get our hands on something that inspires us so much the words flow fast and freely like the expulsion of gases from a Fujitsubo exhaust.

And on a day like today, it’s the latter. The mere mention of those three magical letters that spell World Rally Experimental is enough punctuation to end any discussion of performance. For generations, these direct descendants of World Rally Championship winning machines have etched out their own victories on the streets.

But of course seeing the blasphemous intrusion of a CVT in its lesser sibling, any boyracer worth his salt would be naturally concerned about the latest car’s potency. In that we are happy to exalt that the elements of the WRX STI remains in the new car. Not only does it retain the same 2.5-litre boxer we’ve come to love in something other than a Porsche, the cherished manual six-speeder continues to thrive as well.

The entire experience from registering my car on OneShift to the handing over to the dealer was very pleasant. The process at OneShift was efficient and transparent. Special thanks to RenAi from OneShift who was very detailed and helpful.

Good response and support from Angie at One Shift when I wanted to sell off my old Camry which was due to be scrapped in early February. Would recommend this platform for those wanting to buy or sell their cars.
