2010 Subaru WRX STI Special Edition (SE) Review
Subaru has brought the WRX STI sedan back into the Impreza fold for 2011, but that doesn't mean the hatchback model is going anywhere.
In fact, while all WRX and WRX STI models get a styling refresh for 2011, the 2010 model year STI Special Edition adds a fair amount of go-fast bits while subtracting somewhat from the base price of an STI.
For $32,995, the Special Edition gets a suspension cribbed from the Japanese-market C-Spec STI, which means that the springs bring the car lower by 1 mm. In addition, the springs are stiffened by 16 percent up front and 29 percent out back. The rear subframe bushings are also stiffened, and the rear anti-roll bar is 1 mm larger.
Body-colored mirrors and 14-spoke wheels will help differentiate Special Editions from other STIs, and the first 125 that are sold will be painted Aspen White.
