You usually see the STi badge on the hottest versions of Subaru Impreza, but now you may also order a STi edition of their magnificent family saloon, the Legacy. This package is available for both sedan and station wagon Legacy based on the GT trim level featuring the renowned turbocharged 2.5 liter boxer engine, and it includes visual and mechanical upgrades.
These hotted-up models are distinguished by tS badge referring to the fact that they’re tuned by STi department. They have a few exclusive visual features as well, such as the front spoiler, side skirts, bootlid spoiler for the sedan and roof spoiler for the wagon, and 180inch wheels.
The interior benefits from STi steering wheel covered in leather, sporty instrument panel, new shifter and special floor mats with STi badging.
As for the performance, while the output of the engine remains the same 265 hp, which is fairly enough for a family sedan, the STi team hooks you up with a sport exhaust system for better soundtrack, and Bilestein suspension set for better handling.
It’s all very brilliant, because the Legacy is such a fine car and this treatment only makes it better. But, it’s currently available only in Japan!
