Western publications have captured a prototype of the next generation Japanese sedan Subaru WRX. Although the body of the car was covered with camouflage film, you can still see the elements of the updated exterior.
Judging by those photos, which show a test prototype of the brand new WRX, the Japanese sedan will receive a sloping “face” – this effect was achieved due to the sloping to the bottom of the hood. Despite the camouflage, one can notice a hexagonal false radiator grille with oval-shaped honeycombs. The front bumper has a central air intake and small fog lamps can be seen on the sides.
The car received rather narrow headlights, which received several LEDs. There is a branded air intake on the hood.
Apparently, the Subaru team for some reason decided to hide a rather neat rear spoiler – it is located on the luggage compartment lid – you can see this exterior element under the camouflage. The taillights are now more angular than the WRX variant currently available on the market. The rear bumper has vertical air vents. Double tailpipes of the exhaust system look out from its side.
Our insiders report that the new Subaru WRX will be powered by a 2.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. In other models from the automaker, such as the Ascent, Legacy and Outback, it develops 260 horsepower (376 Nm).
