The concept car is based on the Subaru BRZ, an all-new rear-wheel drive compact sports car, which is due to be unveiled in production form at Tokyo Motor Show at the end of the month.
Featuring Subaru’s core technology of the horizontally-opposed Boxer engine, the model has a low centre of gravity that results in a “pure handling delight,” according to FHI.
STI is Subaru’s performance division.
L.A. Auto Show press days are November 16 and 17. It is open to the public from November 18 to 27.
Every Subaru sold in Australia features Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and a horizontally opposed Boxer engine, standard Vehicle Dynamics Control electronic stability program, and a five-star rating for occupant safety from the independent Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP). The result – driving confidence.
