The Subaru Impreza WRX STI (GR) is the successor to the GD Impreza.

Production started in 2008. The GR was initially offered only as a hatchback, featuring larger fenders than seen in the previous generation models.

Thanks to a larger intercooler, higher turbo boost (14.9 psi), and the new Active Valve Control System (AVCS), which controls both intake and exhaust values, the GR is capable of better road performance than its predecessors.

The WRX STI underwent a facelift for the 2011 model year.

Need for Speed: World

The 2008 Impreza WRX STI Hatchback was made available in Need for Speed: World on October 25th, 2011 as a tier 2 car. Since August 22nd, 2012, it has been featured as a B class car.

Nitrous boost is the most lacking trait of the WRX STI. This is compensated by quick acceleration. It can outrun most B Class cars including the Mazda RX-8 in Drag events.

The WRX STI also has responsive handling and sufficient traction at any speed because of being AWD. Standard top speed is 161 mph (259 km/h). The SpeedBoost variant hits 189 mph (305 km/h) as top speed.

The WRX STI is one of the best in-game cash purchasable vehicles because of its driving traits, which makes it useful for any game mode. However, it may be less effective against A Class, since these cars usually have more power.
