Default Shenzhen STI

Is this a legit STI? STI badge on grill and near rear plates. I saw this in Shenzhen, China . . .

Looks like a regular XT with badges to me. STI would have a different grille, bumper, hood scoop, interior, wheels, brakes, and was not available in cayenne red.

Cars in China tend to be of two varieties:

Foreign manufactured vehicles as might be available in the country of origin, imported at a pretty high cost.
or
Vehicles locally made by a joint venture company, which involves the owner of the marque but doesn't necessarily produce vehicles that perfectly match those made in the marque's normal distribution area. Witness the large number of 'Buicks' in China.

I don't know whether Subaru has set up a joint venture, but if so this could account an unusual looking Chinese 'Subaru'.
