Quick Clip: 2015 Subaru WRX (Sound bite) - YouTube

Exhaust Note teaser. It's definitely running ELH. Not sure how I feel about that. I've read arguments about Unequal vs Equal quite a bit, but I don't know that (unless you're building a serious racecar) that there's enough difference to warrant a change on a stock car.

Also, pretty sure this is the CVT version they're driving.

Here's the full review from Driving Sports TV. It is the CVt version tested, but it's a pretty informational review. 5 x 114 bolt pattern wheels were surprising, plus it's just fun seeing Ryan get so giddy behind the wheel.

Some other details that I couldn't fit in the review: the steering rack is tighter at 14.5:1 (versus 15:1 previously), the steering wheel is smaller (but not as small as the BRZs), the seats have a movable headrest due to safety requirements (but they're really nice anyhow), the front stabilizer bar is upgraded from 21mm to 24mm, the rear bar is 20mm (previously 19mm), rear springs are 62% stiffer than before. Also, SI-Drive now adapts intelligently to driving style, going to the 8-speed stepped mode when driving aggressively. The car also stays in the SI-Drive mode you last used (I or S, not S#). This is due to the way the car was rated by the EPA. The MPG numbers you'll see are basically a mix between I and S, not optimum MPGs which is why, on paper the CVT gets only 19 city / 25 hwy / 21 combined whereas the 6MT gets 21/28/24.

pathetic review but good to see car in motion.

confirms what i was thinking that its basically a 2006+ honda civic shape body with a (nicely aggressive) squared off subaru-ish front end. the two seem to clash but i like it all in all.



i suspect this thing was made for motorsport.
