The 2004 Subaru Impreza WRX STi is an all-wheel drive sports compact that appears in all main Forza Motorsport titles and Forza Horizon 3.

The 2004 WRX STi was developed by Subaru's performance division STi, short for Subaru Technica International, as the first facelift model of the 2000 to 2007 GD codenamed model generation. The 2004 model marked the first entry of the STi in the North American market, which received the car with a 2.5 litre engine instead of the 2 litre version that was available in other markets.

The 2004 WRX STi is commonly referred to as 'blobeye' by car enthusiasts, its facelift replacement - the 2005 WRX STI - is known as the 'hawkeye'.

Description

The traditional blue and yellow Subaru is nearly synonymous with rally racing. The Subaru World Rally Team has been active since 1980 and has employed a “who’s who” list of rally-driving greats including Ari Vatanen, Colin McRae, and Petter [sic] Solberg. It is powered by the turbocharged and intercooled 2.5-liter flat-four that cranks out more than 300 horsepower [sic]. Subaru’s invincible all-wheel drive system provides grippy traction on any surface.

Characteristics

The 2004 WRX STi appears as the Japanese domestic market model in the Forza series. Apart from being right-hand drive, it is powered by a turbocharged 2 litre flat-four engine with 278 hp (207 kW) and 290 ft·lb (393 N·m) of torque, although it has a power rating of 311 hp (232 kW) in Xbox 360 titles.

With a kerb weight of 3270 lb (1483 kg), the 2004 WRX STi is the lightest of all post-2000 era Subaru WRX models. In comparison with the 2004 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VIII MR, it also has a better front weight distribution (58%) but also weighs over 150 lb (68 kg) more. As standard, it is equipped with all-wheel drive and a six-speed manual transmission.

Driving Characteristics

The 2004 WRX STi launches off the line quickly, as shown by a 0 to 60 mph time in under 5 seconds. The two-litre flat-four engine provides plenty of torque for exiting corners but only hits 160 mph (257 km/h) as top speed, which is lowered to 153 mph (246 km/h) in Forza Motorsport 5. The 2004 WRX STi experiences understeer in sharp angle corners, where its front weight will be noticeable by players, although it handles most corners with strong grip performance and steering precision.

Trivia

  • The WRX STi name is fully capitalised in Forza Horizon 3.
