The 2004 Subaru Impreza WRX STi was the first STi model to be introduced in North America.

The WRX STi debuted in the North American market with different specifications than its European and Japanese counterparts. Instead of the 2.0 litre EJ207 flat-four, it was released with a newly designed 2.5 litre version codenamed EJ257. In addition, it borrowed a high number of parts from the JDM Spec C model.

The 2004 STi is commonly referred to as "blobeye" by enthusiasts. It was replaced by the "hawkeye" model in 2006.
