This model year, the sports sedan’s SUBARU BOXER engine is wielding more powerful pistons, a new cold-air intake, a retuned ECU, and a high-flow performance exhaust. All of these tweaks and tune-ups resulted in a fierce, 310-horsepower output.

To help you harness its power, the new Subaru WRX STI Type RA offers a modified 6-speed transmission as well. Its altered third-gear ratio combines with a short-throw shifter for better mid-range acceleration and a faster path to top speed.

A New Handle On Performance

To ensure optimal performance on and off the track, the new 2018 Subaru WRX STI Type RA underwent a meticulous tuning and upgrading for this model year.

STI engineers at the Nürburgring racetrack in Germany and the Virginia International Raceway collaborated to rework the sports sedan’s handling. Inverted front struts and a rear double wishbone suspension, along with Bilstein® dampers and modified spring rates, provide an unrivaled, curve-hugging grip.

For added agility, the Subaru WRX STI Type RA offers a Brembo® brake system, featuring monoblock 6-piston front calipers and dual-piston rear calipers. This high-performance brake setup offers better heat dissipation as well, using innovative cross-drilled rotors.

The 2018 Subaru WRX STI Type RA also provides a revised multi-mode VDC for better stability. Whether you’re looking for an excuse to hit the track or you just want more excitement on your morning commute, your Columbus, GA car dealership has the answer.

Competitive Inspiration, Compelling Outcome

While the 2018 Subaru WRX STI Type RA was engineered for maximum performance, the result is a thing of beauty.

Its exterior is sculpted with aerodynamic intent, featuring smooth lines and lively, performance-enhancing accents. An STI front under spoiler, an STI carbon-fiber trunk spoiler, and rear-bumper side scoops optimize airflow while captivating onlookers. The 2018 WRX STI Type RA also offers a carbon-fiber roof panel, reducing weight and lowering its center of gravity while maintaining a rigid integrity.

Capping off an unmistakable profile are signature lightweight BBS® 19-inch forged alloy wheels with a gold finish. Unlike the 2018 Honda Civic Type R and Ford Focus RS, the new Subaru WRX STI Type RA demands a double take.

Inside, you’ll find yourself in a race-inspired cockpit. High-quality Recaro® performance seats offer an STI logo on each head restraint, as well as red stitching that flows throughout the cabin. An Ultrasuede® steering wheel also sports the STI badge, located on its black gloss center spoke.

Finally, each of the 500 2018 Subaru WRX STI Type RA models presents a plaque on its center console, displaying its individual production number. Ask about test drive opportunities at Rivertown Subaru – a Columbus, GA car dealership serving LaGrange, GA, and Auburn-Opelika, AL.
