The new model’s flat-four boxer turbo engine’s size has been increased from the previous model’s 2.0L to 2.4L. It produces 275PS and 375Nm of torque, which is 25PS less powerful and 25Nm less in torque than the previous model. Less fuel-efficient compared to the old one as well because of its 10.8km/L fuel economy based on WLTC Mode standards.
The new WRX S4 features a different kind of gearbox built specifically for this car. Called Subaru Performance Transmission, a sport-tuned CVT with an 8-speed manual mode that delivers 30% faster upshifts and 50% faster downshifts compared to the previous WRX S4’s Sport Lineartronic CVT. Sounds cheesy but it feels slightly more engaging.
The new variant features bigger Brembo brakes with six-piston front and two-piston rear calipers, 19-inch wheels, 245/35 Bridgestone Potenza summer tires, and Eyesight, a first for a MT-mated VB WRX. Still runs on a 271hp 2.4L turbocharged flat-4 engine.
