Subaru reveals WRX concept

Oh lordy. If this is the Impreza WRX’s successor, consider us sold…

Subaru reveals WRX concept

This concept is what Subaru says will hint at the 2014 WRX, successor to the dead, but still-warm Impreza WRX in Britain. And it looks absolutely wondrous.

So, what do we know? The manufacturer says that, quelle surprise, it's got all-wheel drive. And that the bonnet scoop "provides enough clearance for a turbocharged engine and intercooler," adding "the new-for-2014 Subaru WRX production car, while not confirmed for the UK market, is under consideration. Changing market conditions has allowed Subaru UK to re-examine the feasibility of bringing the new car into Britain."

Additionally, you can see from the stance that it's low. Really low. Which should mean it'll have a confidence-inspiring centre of gravity, It also looks really really good. But you have eyes and a brain and an opinion, so you'll know that already.

We'll have to wait until the Frankfurt motor show in September, but in the meantime, d'you reckon this is a worthy successor to the ‘Preza?

Now share it...
