Called WRX S4 tS, this limited edition that Subaru will market until March in Japan is the perfect choice for those who want a version with more “chicha” of the model, but do not want to get to the extreme of the radical STI.
His image receives an extra dynamism thanks to the specific bumpers, the redesigned grille, the red lip of the calendar and the 19-inch forged aluminum BBS rims. In addition, the package ‘NBR Challenge Package’ is available, which adds elements such as an exclusive emblem in the rear, a carbon fiber spoiler and forged 19-inch wheels finished in black.
The same package also adds a suede-wrapped steering wheel, which adds to the standard equipment of the WRX S4 tS: Recaro sports seats and a luminescent speedometer designed specifically for this version.
However, in the case of a car with these characteristics, what matters most are improvements at the mechanical level. It has a 10% more torque thanks to the modifications made to the intake and exhaust system, on the front axle it mounts adjustable Bilstein DampMatic II suspensions and the Active Torque Vectoring system and has Brembo brakes with four-piston calipers.
The price, about 43,000 euros the basic and about 46,000 the one equipped with the package ‘NBR Challenge Package’, although you will have to go to Japan for it.
