Subaru has rolled out a pair of new 'by STI' Liberty variants ('Legacy' overseas), picking up new styling and handling tweaks from the carmaker's in-house tuning arm.
Based on the Japanese-market B4 sedan and '2.5i EyeSight tS' Touring wagon models, the cars get 18-inch alloys, unique spoilers, new front and rear bumpers, honeycomb grilles, chrome exhaust tips and STI badging.
In the cabin, there's 'Titanium Grey' carbon highlights, black leather-trimmed seats, console cover and steering wheel with red contrast stitching, 260km/h instrument cluster and an STI power button.
Power figures remain unchanged, but STI has added a sports exhaust system, sports coil springs and shocks, strut bars and front lower arms.
Only 300 of the cars will be produced, and all of them for Japan only.
Will we see new 'by STI' models for Australia? We've had them before, with the previous generation model, but it remains to be seen if Subaru's local arm will repeat the theme this time around.
TMR has contacted Subaru Australia, watch for an update.
