Subaru has returned from the drawing board once again with an exciting new high performance vehicle. Subaru has announced the upcoming release of the 2019 STI S209. The 2019 STI S209 is bringing a level of never-before-seen performance to America. This latest installment of the famous S-Series, the S209 is crafted with aerodynamic and lightweight materials, and comes with remarkable features that help it stand out from the competitive pack. The S209 release date is scheduled for Fall 2019 and we hope we can get one at Subaru of Englewood! Let’s explore the S209, which will be the most powerful vehicle in their S-Series!

Bringing the 2019 STI S209 to Life

With love from Japan, the S209 is the result of painstaking work by brilliant STI engineers and test drivers over thousands of hours. Testing on roads, tracks, and the hi-tech STI garage has given birth to a technological marvel that can live up to the renowned S-Series name. The S209 production is limited to just 209 vehicles for now and we know will be flying off the lot as soon as they land on the shores of America this fall.

Blending sleek design, raw power and innovative technology together in a perfect combination, the S209 is expected to take precise and intuitive driving to the next level. Brilliant engineering has gone into creating a refined and upgraded model that gives a thrilling performance to today's driver. The S209 has been engineered to provide the best performance, whether in professional racing or smoothly maneuvering city corners and winding back roads.

Signature Design Features

The S209 comes with an aggressive new look, with flared fenders designed to fit the wider wheel and tire setup. The car's rear wing and roof are both made of carbon-fiber, which improves body rigidity and reduces weight while giving the vehicle a signature aggressive style. The S209 exterior colors come in two variants: Crystal White Pearl and World Rally Blue Pearl. Limited-edition badging is also featured throughout the exterior of the S209.

The vehicle's interior design pops with the signature S-model red and silver accents. Stylish S209 badging is on the front passenger headrests, and behind the shifter is a limited-edition plate number. An 8-way power driver's seat and Recaro performance front seats in the cockpit elevate ergonomic and safety. An Ultrasuede-wrapped steering wheel and the easy-to-monitor Multi-Function Display give the driver comfortable and confident control while driving.

Maximizing Performance

We could write multiple articles about the performance and engineering features of the S209. Let’s take a look at some of the highlights. The STI S209 comes with a larger turbocharger and an upgraded SUBARU BOXER® engine. The addition of injectors, an upgraded fuel pump, and a remapped engine control unit makes the S-model an absolute beast when set loose. With 341 horsepower, the vehicle can go from 0 to 60mph in less than 5 seconds. With great power comes great responsibility, so the S209 is equipped with a Brembo® performance brake system including a 6-piston front and 2-piston rear monoblock calipers and large cross-drilled rotors.

The car's wider race-inspired body is designed for better stability and cornering. The vehicle is fitted with Dunlop® Summer Performance 265mm tires mounted on 19-9 inch alloy wheels. This set up is optimized to deliver quicker suspension response and better grip than ever before. The chassis and suspension of the S209 are extensively upgraded to maximize cornering grip, stability, and handling balance. These enhancements include a flexible STI tower bar, STI-tuned Blistein® dampers, and pillow-ball suspension bushings. Other improvements for performance enhancement include an optimized exhaust, intake, drivetrain, and an intercooler water-spray system.
