2014 Subaru Impreza WRX STI 4dr Hatchback AWD (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


After owning a 2007 STI, I consider the 2014 STI a great improvement. Much improved seats and lower road noise over 2007 STI. 2014 STI is a bit more refined than 2007 STI, however the 2007 STI car was a bit more raw and in-your-face.

I chose the hatchback over the sedan as it offers the best of both worlds in performance and utility. Plus the hatchback does not appear to draw as much attention as the sedan with the big wing.

While I could've waited for the new 2015 STI,
but with the next STI/WRX being more road focus I felt like the next car would lose little bit of it's rally heritage and that what makes STI unique.

Best Features

By far my favorite feature is the performance and utility. The cars just versatile from trips the Home Depot or cutting it up on a back road this car can do it all and do it fast.

Worst Features

The gas mileage on this car could be better but it's not too far other all-wheel-drive cars with 300+ hp. But we all know you don't buy in STI for the mileage. The nav system could use some improvement and a higher resolution display. We all know the sound system use some improvement and a backup camera. The OEM nav system can support a backup camera but the car not prewired for it.
