While the BRZ was battling it out it the Super GT GT300 class down at the circuit, Subaru had also brought another car down to Sepang; not for the race, but to unveil their all-new Subaru WRX STi 2012 into the Malaysian market. To those that miss the Subaru’s old 4-door sedan layout, your prayers have not gone unnoticed as this new one brings back the old family-friendly layout.

<a href="http://www.zerotohundred.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/awd_badge.jpg"><img src="http://www.zerotohundred.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/awd_badge-600x399.jpg" alt="" width="600" height="399" /></a>

Being introduced in Malaysia by Motor Image Malaysia Sdn Bhd, this newly-launched Subaru will be incorporating an improved version of their Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system and houses a 2.5 litre Boxer engine, which is available to customers in either a 5-speed auto or a 6-speed manual transmission.

<a href="http://www.zerotohundred.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/sti_badge_rear.jpg"><img class="alignnone size-medium wp-image-31262" src="http://www.zerotohundred.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/sti_badge_rear-600x399.jpg" alt="" width="600" height="399" /></a>

And to suit the varied driving style of the driver, the STi comes with a Multi-Mode Vehicle Dynamics Control System (VDC) that allows the driver to personally choose the preferred performance depending on the driving conditions; ‘Normal’ for the daily cruising, ‘Traction’ for a performance driving and also to those who have the guts and skills to be in full control, ‘Off’.

<a href="http://www.zerotohundred.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/sti_front.jpg"><img src="http://www.zerotohundred.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/sti_front-600x399.jpg" alt="" width="600" height="399" /></a>

Also to cater to the driver’s desired engine response is the Subaru Intelligent Drive (SI-Drive) where again they will have three different modes to choose from; Intelligent, Sport and Sport Sharp. ‘Intelligent’ serves to put out a smooth flow of power, prioritizing on efficiency. ‘Sport’ on the other hand allows a much more agile response on any driving condition. And to get the maximum throttle response from the turbocharged Boxer engine, the ‘Sport Sharp’ fits the bill.

<a href="http://www.zerotohundred.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/sti_badge_front.jpg"><img src="http://www.zerotohundred.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/sti_badge_front-600x399.jpg" alt="" width="600" height="399" /></a>

<a href="http://www.zerotohundred.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/sti_rear.jpg"><img class="alignnone size-medium wp-image-31256" src="http://www.zerotohundred.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/sti_rear-600x400.jpg" alt="" width="600" height="400" /></a>

And like all the previous legendary Subarus, this one also wears the iconic red STi badge on the front grills, the front wheel arches, and the rear of the car. With a spoiler on the rear to provide some necessary downforce, the 2012 STi also runs on 18-inch aluminium alloy wheels and ventilated disc brakes on both front and rear.

Looks better than the hatchback but the wing is awful. The rear end is also still too bulky, looks like a Vios!

I agreed with IXEO. As a Subaru fan, this new 2012 WRX STI is not as beautiful + mean look as version 8 and 9. But compared to version 10 hatchback, this is better and hope it will win races in WRC.

Unfortunately Subaru is not in WRC anymore for a few years already!

i rather bought another version8 than bought the new wrx sti. quad exhaust on boxer engine? wtf. ej25? should wait for spec C version.
S206 also out jor lorr... but available in japan only. EJ25 has lower torque than EJ20 and this 2.5 wrx sti is much cheaper than 2.0 wrx sti hatchbatch.. Evo X price RM305,000.. zzz very huge gap.

Saw the car in the flesh ... she is heck of a great looking. I love the lines and its stance. Time to go rob a bank!
