Subaru Canada Introduces The 2020 WRX STI Kanrai 寒雷 Edition

The 2020 Subaru WRX STI Kanrai 寒雷 Edition takes the STI’s performance to the next dynamic level.

  • Only 75 will be available for sale.
  • Will be based on the top-line Subaru WRX STI Sport-tech.
  • It arrives in early spring with a $50,395 price tag.

The introduction of this special 2020 Subaru WRX STI means a few things, in our opinion. Both the Subaru WRX and WRX STI are the final pieces in Subaru’s global platform puzzle which tells us they are on their way out. Before they go however, what better way to celebrate the cars with unique and special editions. Here then is the 2020 Subaru WRX STI Kanrai 寒雷 Edition.

Kanrai 寒雷, according to Subaru Canada, translates to “winter thunder.” This is made clear by its Ceramic White exterior colour. Funny thing is the winter warrior arrives only this Spring, but hey, that’s beside the point.

The 2020 Subaru WRX STI Kanrai 寒雷 Edition will also feature gorgeous 19-inch Bronze BBS lightweight wheels wrapped in hyper-aggressive Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2. Behind the wheels are Brembo 6-piston front, 2-piston rear high performance brakes with silver painted calipers and above them, a Bilstein performance-tuned suspension. Physically, it will wear the lip spoiler (mildly buggered), various black accents and a grille with cherry-red accents.

As always, the STI is powered by the turbocharged 2.5-litre Boxer-4 good for 310-horsepower and 290 lb.-ft. of torque. The 6-speed manual gearbox is mated to the DCCD with Helical-type limited-slip front differential and TORSEN limited-slip rear differential.

Pricing is set at $50,395, or $3,000 more than the Subaru WRX STI Sport-tech with Lip Spoiler.
