On sale today throughout Japan, the WRX S4 is more powerful and better equipped than a standard WRX.

The S4 tag denotes the four values of "sports performance", "safety performance", "smart driving" and "sophisticated feel".

Teamed with simulated eight-speed variable transmission, the S4's 2.0-liter high-performance direct injection turbo (DIT) engine boasts 296 horsepower (221 kilowatts) and 295 pound-feet (400 Nm) of torque.

Subaru also worked to stiffen both body and suspension while optimizing suspension geometry, resulting in quickened vehicle response to driver steering input and raised the limit performance for cornering. In addition, Multi-mode Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC) and Active Torque Vectoring have been added for even more predictable, more enjoyable driving.

WRX S4's Exterior Design

The exterior has received a few modifications. For example, the intrepid shape of the new hawkeye headlights is paired with the aggressive wide and low styling the WRX is known for.

For side design, the bottom end of the A-pillar was extended 200 mm toward the front from the previous model and the C-pillar now smoothly transits into the trunk surface for a flowing silhouette. Front fender ducts and special sharp side sill spoilers show off the sporty nature of the WRX S4.

The rear design further enhances the WRX S4's appeal as a performance model. The diffuser-integrated bumper and twin dual mufflers emphasize the low center of gravity and driving performance. Specially designed rear combination lamps were given a thin shape to highlight vehicle width. A small rear spoiler also enhances aerodynamic performance.

WR Blue Pearl and Crystal White Pearl are two new exterior colors.

"High-Performance" Interior

Inside, passengers will find sports seats designed to transport them "miles from their daily drive," according to Subaru.

For the first time, the WRX S4 gets a flat-bottom steering wheel for a sportier impression. The grip shape is easy to hold onto with a small diameter for improved operability and tactile feedback, making for a more appealing driving experience.

The leather-finish gearshift boot features red stitching. Piano black finishes and metallic accents highlight the sporty, high-quality feel of the interior.
