A French blog has published what it claims to be images of the Subaru WRX Concept, ahead of an expected reveal at the New York motor show tomorrow.
The high-quality illustrations show a car with strong visual connections to the Subaru Impreza WRX, with a pronounced bonnet scoop and a square front grille. The thick-set wings appear to be inspired by the later Impreza WRX STI hatchback.
Other external features include a rear diffuser, four exhaust tailpipes and the blue paintwork evocative of Subaru’s WRC cars.
Large wheels hide what appear to be six-piston callipers, finished in yellow – another Subaru WRC hallmark. The WRX badges are in the same colour.
There is no word on technical specification, but online reports suggest a 2.0-litre four-cylinder boxer engine could be fitted, producing up to 300bhp. Such an engine is likely to be an evolution of the unit fitted to the current WRX STI, still sold in markets outside of the UK.
