2014 Subaru Impreza WRX Ken Block Review

2014 Subaru Impreza WRX Ken Block Review - Subaru is a car that is very well known products in the world of racing. One is a rally and drift. So many types issued for world-class racing. Among cars from subaru that I like is the Subaru WRX STi. This car model is very agile and nimble. Has more power to match Rally.

Following is a review of the Subaru WRX STi.

There was a time when the smart money thought the Subaru Impreza was in the vanguard of a new breed of affordable performance cars that would in time take over the world.
The hot hatch had had its day, and now it was time for the Playstation generation to have its say. Technology had never been more affordable: when the Impreza Turbo was introduced it cost just £17,999 despite its forced induction and all-wheel drive hardwear, which was almost £20,000 less than the Porsche 968.
But you could fit all your family in the Impreza, their luggage in the boot and still dust the Porker away from the lights.
But all that was a very long time ago – 1994 to be precise - and while Subaru have thrown at least 15 different variations on the original theme at the market since then and despite the collusion of Mitsubishi and its largely epic Evolution models, the invasion never came. To this day the Impreza, renamed the WRX STi since 2010 is what it always was: a niche player. Question is, is it still any good?
The WRX STI is available for £28k. If more power is required, the STi can be turned into the 335bhp 340R model for just £1699.

 Driver extraordinaire Ken Block and the Monster World Rally team had a conundrum on their hands: they wanted to compete in Stage Rally, Rallycross, and Gymkhana events, but didn’t want to field a separate car for each discipline. The team’s answer to said conundrum comes in the form of the Hybrid Function Hoon Vehicle (H.F.H.V.), a highly adaptable WRC Ford Fiesta hatchback race car that saves the expense of three individual cars. The Fiesta’s suspension, transmission, gearing, and wheel and tire setups are among its interchangeable bits, and the team designed three different setups that (perhaps not so) simply bolt in depending on which event the car is competing in. Enjoy the fun stop-motion video the Monster team put together to show off the H.F.H.V.’s adaptability below. We find the ’80s video-game soundtrack particularly pleasing.

SI-DRIVE and DCCD

The STI is designed with Subaru Intelligent Drive (SI-DRIVE) technology, allowing the driver to tailor the vehicle’s driving characteristics by choosing from among three selectable modes. It also has Driver Controlled Center Differential (DCCD), so you can define how the Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system distributes power.
Standard on: WRX STI, WRX STI Limited

Turbocharged SUBARU BOXER® Engine


Packed with a turbocharger that works with a lightweight intercooler to boost output and response, the WRX gives you 265 horsepower and delivers 244 lb-ft of torque to all four wheels for intense acceleration.

WRX STI unleashes 305 horsepower and 290 lb-ft of torque with the help of a higher-boost turbocharger and larger intercooler. It's the heart of the beast for these lion-taming tuners, although a part of you prefers its wild side.
265-hp engine standard on: WRX, WRX Premium, WRX Limited
305-hp engine standard on: WRX STI, WRX STI Limited
