Find the Stink Eye WRX at Ultimate Rides

The History Behind the Stink Eye WRX

Over the years, different mini-generations of the Subaru Impreza WRX STI have developed their own nicknames based on the shape of their headlights. Though these names aren’t officially given by Subaru, it’s what many folks have dubbed them, and the names have stuck. Subaru WRX STI models from 2008 to 2014 are playfully and affectionately known as the Stink Eye. The Stink Eye WRX is a popular vehicle with performance enthusiasts for a few reasons, including the historically powerful engine and sleek aesthetic. Simply put, the cars just drive differently. For many folks, once they get a taste of how a WRX feels, it’s hard to go back to anything else.

Many people have their own preferred variation of the vehicle, and the Stink Eye WRX is one of the most prominent iterations. The Stink Eye was the follow-up to the Hawkeye variation, and brought upon the third overall generation of the Subaru Impreza. While some maintain that the second generation was better, there are plenty out there who believe the Stink Eye is an improvement on previous versions. For those who are thinking about upgrading to a quality used performance vehicle, we think you can’t make a better choice than this.
