Currently reading: Subaru WRX concept leaked ahead of New York show
Leaked images show what appear to be the replacement for the Subaru WRX STI

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.

Car review

The STi is fast, grippy and offers immense value, maintaining an image Subaru has cultivated through years of rally pedigree

New WRX looking good

At last, a Subaru worth saving up for! I'd have this over a BRZ any day of the week. Needs gold wheels and a rear spoiler, though...

technologically perfect

i can say that technology is not really perfect no matter how advance it. imagine that designing a car so perfect yet all the security may have been compramized as it already leak way ahead of the show. how come? is it done by intention or the information was not securely taken care of? i thought that theirs already an ISO for security so why did this happen?

This looks much better.A Litchfield Spec C version would rival A45/CLA45 AMG at a bit less money.They need to get up to date with a proper/faster/cleaner/more economical Double clutch box though.
