AND/OR the cooling fans could be programmed to kick on at slightly different temps. Hotter engines run more efficiently and produce less emissions, within reason.

NA motors at normal RPM operating ranges will also likely build coolant temp at a much less rapid pace when compared to a turbo car, especially one that cools the turbo with engine coolant. Basically turbos can build heat much more rapidly and go kaboom in a much shorter time span, whereas you could romp on your Forester for probably twice as long before it increased the coolant temp to the same level as a WRX.

Either way, that's a very negligible difference between two totally different animals, and you're 100% ok.
