The all-new Subaru WRX is coming. Just recently, the Japanese automaker released a teaser of its sport sedan, which could mean that its global debut could happen anytime soon.
Subaru of America was the one who uploaded the teaser which gives a glimpse of the upcoming sport sedan in silhouette form. Despite the car being darkened, we do see some familiar details on its fascia, perhaps, the all-new Subaru WRX could have a frontend that closely resembles the current-generation Levorg. Of course, this model wouldn’t be complete without the iconic hood scoop, a design cue that pays homage to its predecessors.
A Subaru trademark that’s worth mentioning happens to be its strong point for road visibility, with most of its cars having large glass panels even on the A-pillars, by the looks of it, the upcoming WRX is no exception. If you look closely at the teaser, it appears that the side mirrors are positioned on the doors, therefore allowing it to accommodate a large glass panel on its A-pillars.
While we’re still short on details, the all-new WRX’s powertrain options could possibly include the 1.8-liter turbocharged gasoline motor found on the current Levorg and a larger 2.4-liter turbocharged engine that’s used on the Evoltis. Presumably, the all-new model could still come with automatic and manual transmission options. Then again, these are just pure assumptions, so we’ll get into the powertrain details once Subaru finally rolls out its all-new halo car.
The current-generation model has been around in the market for quite some time now, with it debuting last 2014. Truly, the WRX is built under the strong rally heritage of Subaru, and like most of its stablemates, except the BRZ, it also comes standard with the brand’s Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD). Subaru didn’t state any specific date for its debut, perhaps, it could happen anytime soon. So stay tuned and keep your eyes peeled for some updates.
