Does the WRX understeer?

Does the WRX understeer?

Fundamentally the WRX suffers from having the engine mounted entirely in front of the front axle, which shifts the polar weight bias forward like a dart or shuttlecock, just less obviously biased. This will cause understeer. There’s quite a few other things like camber, tires, road surface, etc as well.

Does Subaru oversteer or understeer?

The net result is more front grip than rear, which in a perfectly neutral car would cause oversteer, but in a Subaru just makes it more neutral.

Is the 2011 Subaru WRX STI a budget car?

Subaru has managed to sharpen both the WRX and the WRX STI for 2011, but in different ways. The base WRX now wears a body befitting a budget performance heathen while the mighty WRX STI has been given some much needed focus for the first time in years.

What’s the difference between the 2010 and 2011 STI?

We drove both the 2010 and 2011 STI around a tight road course, and the company’s engineering work immediately came to light between the two vehicles. While the 2010 model tended to rely more on the tires to supply grip under more aggressive driving, the 2011 seemed to make better use of the whole chassis.

What’s the price of a 2011 Subaru Impreza?

Nor’easters—not the storms, but rather the people who suffer from them—will be pleased. The 2011 four-door starts at $34,720, so it lowers the STI entry fee by a couple of grand compared with the 2010 car. The Limited sedan adds the aforementioned leather, wheels, fog lamps, and sunroof, commanding an extra $3350.

What’s the top speed of a Subaru WRX STI?

The sedan’s touted advantage is in its aerodynamic efficiency, which Subaru says allows a top speed of 158 mph, 3 ticks more than the five-door’s. But cargo capacity takes a 7.7-cubic-foot hit from the hatch’s 19 cubic feet behind the rear seats. (The back seats in both models fold.)
