The car on display housed a 296-hp, 2.5-liter four; the manual-only U.S. car’s 2.5-liter makes 305 hp.
Subie says the A-Line is meant for folks in cities like Tokyo, where ridiculously heavy traffic makes the STI’s usual six-speed manual a bit of a chore to use, even if it is the best way to keep the turbocharged flat-four in the meat of its powerband.
