Yesterday marked a historical day for Subaru enthusiasts across the United States as well as a very big day for Subaru's special performance division, STI. Or Subaru Tecnica International. At the Detroit International Auto Show, the Subaru STI S209 was unveiled for the first time in America and we can't wait to get behind the wheel of this high-performance STI.

The 2019 Subaru STI S209 is the most powerful, best handling, and most exciting Subaru that Subaru Tecnica International has ever created. For years the Subaru STI S series was only available in Japan and something that only Subaru lovers could only dream of driving. That is going to change as the STI S209 will be available later in 2019 for purchase here in the United States. The STI S209 may look similar to the WRX STI but features a number of specially, performance-based design characteristics that are exclusive to the S209. The flared fenders on all four corners accommodate for the wider wheels and tire package. The sleek profile of the S209 is complete with a carbon-fiber roof to save weight while also improving rigidity. The rear wing and front under spoiler are also made from carbon-fiber that work together to create more downforce and stability. You will be able to choose between two colors; WR Blue Pearl with Satin Gray wheels or Crystal White Pearl with Satin Gold wheels.

Powering the 2019 Subaru STI S209 is a 341 horsepower BOXER engine with a larger turbocharger for that extra boost of power. Under the iconic hood scoop is an intercooler water-spray system to temporarily lower engine intake temperatures. The S209 had STI engineers working overtime making extensive tuning adjustments to the suspension for improved cornering grip, turn-in and handling balance that is inspired by motorsports. The S209 is equipped with a flexible STI tower bar, STI-tuned Bilstein® dampers, STI-designed front and rear draw stiffeners, and pillow-ball suspension bushings which result in dramatically improved grip, handling, balance, and stability. All together makes the 2019 Subaru STI S209 the most powerful and best handling Subaru S-model yet.

We can't wait for the 2019 Subaru STI S209 to hit the streets later this year. To learn more about how to get behind the wheel of one of this very limited Subaru performance car be sure to speak with a member of our sales team.
