Video: PDriveTV’s 2016 Subaru WRX STI POV review & track test

When it comes to rally-bred sports sedans, nobody does it better than Subaru. And for the MY2016 WRX STI, the company has perhaps made its performance even more accessible to a wider range of buyers and driver types.

2016 Subaru WRX STI POV review

We’re testing the WRX STI Premium version which comes with luxuries such as leather seats, an electric sunroof, and a comprehensive infotainment system with sat-nav and even music-streaming apps. This tells you straight away this car hasn’t put all of its eggs in one basket; it takes on a variety of demands and tries to meet all of them.

Does it pull it off? On initial thought, we think it has. Sure, the STI is not the hardcore road-going rally sedan it once used to be. But now, you can happily take the kids to school in it and enjoy some heart-throbbing laps on a circuit on the weekend; it caters for a wider spectrum of needs.

We’ll be putting together a full review soon, going over all of the tech details and changes that have been made for MY16, and of course do our usual 0-100km/h and engine sound video. In the meantime, here’s a quick point-of-view test drive including a hot lap at Wakefield Park thanks to GP EXEC Driving Experiences.
