Thanks to readers Rosman Fitri, ApexKit and Anol Alias, we have spyshots of the new Subaru WRX and WRX STI in Malaysia! Both have been sighted nestling in the JPJ car park, with the WRX STI differentiated by its huge rear wing. A JPJ evaluation unit has also been spotted in TTDI Jaya.
Under the WRX’s bonnet lurks a 268 PS/350 Nm 2.0 litre direct-injected flat-four, with six-speed manual and Sport Lineartronic CVT gearboxes to choose from. Its more hardcore WRX STI sibling is powered by a 300 PS/407 Nm 2.5 litre multi port-injected flat-four, and only comes with a six-speed manual.
The fourth-gen Subaru WRX and WRX STI only recently received their regional launch in Manila. They’re expected to be available in Malaysia from July onwards. Learn more about the hot Scooby pair here.
