When you buy a new car, you want to have something that lasts for years. If you want a car that also has good performance, sometimes you may have to sacrifice durability and except that your car is going to eventually need repairs. The Subaru WRX gives you a car that is durable and has packages available for high performance. Here are some of the features of the Subaru WRX STI Type RA that give you performance and durability:
1. Turbocharged 2.5 Liter Engine for Power and Performance
One of the interesting features of the STI package is the high-performance engine. The WRX STI Type RA features a 2.5-liter turbocharged engine that produces 310 brake horsepower; thanks to the improved cold air intake and exhaust improvements. The power of its engine, combined with specially designed lightweight parts give the Type RA an edge over other cars in its class.
2. Lightweight Parts for Improved Performance
The STI model also features lightweight parts, which helps to reduce curb weight. This loss in weight translates into improved power, handling and overall performance. These parts include the carbon fiber roof panel and rear spoiler wing, as well as 19-inch alloy wheels. The lightweight parts are some of the features that set the Type RA apart from the standard model WRX.
3. Suspension Improvements for Improved Handling
The suspension is another area that is improved with the STI Type RA packages. The height of the springs has been reduced and performance shock absorbers have been installed to provide better handling and reduce body roll in turns. With the lower center of gravity, the WRX STI Type RA can zip around turns at high speeds without any slipping of the tires.
4. Front and Rear Spoilers for Improve Handling at High Speeds
The STI Type RA also has front and rear spoilers, which help to push the wheels down on the asphalt to give you more grip in turns. In the front, the spoiler is part of the body kit below the grill. The spoiler in the back is a carbon fiber wing designed for racing to give your car the best performance.
These are some of the features of the Subaru WRX STI Type RA that will give you a durable, high-performance new car.
