Subaru has unveiled the new generation WRX S4 sports sedan for the Japanese domestic market. Receiving orders for the new product started on November 25th.

Recall that in September this year, the Subaru WRX was presented in the international version. The WRX S4 for the Japanese market is almost the same.

The novelty is built on the basis of the SGP (Subaru Global Platform) platform, on which Subaru Levorg has already been made.

Compared to the previous generation, the new WRX S4 has increased the torsional rigidity of the body by 28% and the rigidity of the suspension attachment points by 75%. It clarifies that the rear anti-roll bar is now attached directly to the body and not to the subframe. The center of gravity is also lowered. The front fenders are made of aluminum, which makes them lighter by 2.3 kg.

Under the hood of the new generation WRX S4, a 2.4-liter FA24 engine is installed, which produces 275 hp. and 375 Nm of torque (350 Nm was declared for the WRX). Average fuel consumption in the WLTC cycle is 9.3 liters per 100 kilometers.

Symmetrical all-wheel drive Subaru is equipped with active traction vectoring system. In the Japanese market, the WRX S4 will be sold only with an updated CVT (in foreign markets, the WRX is also available with a “mechanic”). Using the paddle shifters, you can switch between eight virtual gears. Upgrade speed increased by 30%.
