The Chinese edition of Autohome has revealed the exterior of the new Subaru WRX. Officially, the manufacturer published only uninformative teasers, but now the novelty can be viewed in its entirety. As in the case of the second-generation Levorg station wagon, which turned out to be more boring than the previous Viziv Tourer concept, the four-door is only partly similar to the Viziv Performance show car.
At the front, the new Subaru WRX repeats the “second” Levorg like two drops of water. Only the inserts in the lower and side parts of the bumper differ. On the side – the same irregular arches, deliberately accentuated by angular plastic overlays: the same were on the Viziv Performance and Viziv Tourer concepts. The stern is not visible in the photo, so some intrigue still remains.
It is assumed that the WRX is built on the SGP platform, equipped with a 2.4 petrol turbo four with a capacity of about 300 horsepower, a manual transmission or a Lineartronic variator, and Symmetrical AWD all-wheel drive. Moreover, the engine is probably the “boxer” FA24, which is put on the American Ascent, Outback and Legacy. He will also get the WRX STI, but already forced up to 400 forces.
