Cruise control, a reversing camera, and climate control air-conditioning, which can maintain a set temperature.
A hill start assist system, which makes driving off on hills easier.
Very bright and long-lasting LED headlamps and tail lights, which switch on automatically when it’s dark. Front and rear foglights.
An iPod-compatible AM/FM radio and CD infotainment system with a touchscreen, and USB and auxiliary inputs. A Bluetooth hands-free system for phone calls and audio streaming, and a voice control function.
Buttons on the steering wheel for operating the audio system, Bluetooth and cruise control.
A 4.3-inch multi-function display at the top of the dashboard, which displays the outside temperature, turbo boost pressure, fuel use and trip distance.
Eighteen-inch wheels made from an alloy of aluminium – these are the norm on sporty models, because they are lighter (as well as better looking than steel wheels with plastic covers). A steel space-saver spare wheel and tyre.
A sports body kit, which includes a rear diffuser and a spoiler on the bootlid, a bonnet scoop that feeds air to the engine intercooler, and twin exhaust tailpipes. (These items improve the look of these cars, and distinguish them from the Subaru Impreza on which they are based.)
Front sports seats with red stitching, sporty bare-metal control pedals, leather-trimmed gear shift and park brake handles, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with red stitching.
Seven airbags: two directly in front of the driver and front passenger; one alongside each front occupant to protect the upper body; a curtain airbag down each side protecting the heads of front and rear occupants; and a knee protection airbag for the driver.
Electronic stability control, which can help the driver to control a skidding car. All new cars must have this feature.
Seven paint colours are available, and they all come without extra cost.
Every Subaru WRX and STi carries a three-year, unlimited kilometre warranty.
