Update: The Two images you see under are the supposed leaked renderings of the entire manufacturing 2015 WRX. Hypothesis is operating rampant right now regarding the validity of the renderings. Whether They’re the advent of a fanboy or now not, we really like the sophisticated Update of the bodylines. Check back quickly for more updates.

Subaru is about to unveil its subsequent-gen 2015 WRX rally-inspired sedan at the 2013 LA Auto Express subsequent week. And we’re very, very excited by way of the prospect.

The WRX is primarily based upon the Subaru’s all-wheel-drive Impreza compact sedan. Whereas the Impreza is a bit utilitarian, we love it a lot – especially the taller XV Crosstrek variant. It Will lack any actual tech nevertheless it’s still an excellent little knockabout that can handle just about anything that you would be able to toss at it.

The 2015 WRX will optimistically pickup where its plucky predecessors left off. We suspect the subsequent-gen WRX will be powered via a turbocharged version of The Two.Zero-liter Boxer engine that propels the rear-pressure BRZ sports Automobile. With a turbo suited to it, although, we suspect the new WRX to make near 270 horsepower, which, like at all times, can be piped to all 4 wheels.

The Current, 2013 WRX has an older 2.5-liter turbo engine that makes 265 hp. Whereas Suby could bore-out the brand new 2.0 to 2.5-liters, to check displacement with the outgoing variation, we expect it’ll go away the motor as-is. This Manner, the new WRX can have more commonality with the bottom Impreza and – if Subaru decides to re-enter the arena Rally Championship (WRC) – it won’t have to suit another engine to the WRX.

We liked the WRX concept that Subaru unveiled previous this 12 months at the the big apple Auto Exhibit. We therefore learned, though, that the following-gen WRX wouldn’t observe its idea’s lead. This Is disappointing for sure. But based totally upon the teaser image above, we like very so much where the stouthearted little Japanese automaker has performed with the design.

We probably gained’t be aware of extra of the 2015 Subaru WRX unless its press convention on the 20th. Simply in case, although, remember to Test back incessantly for this and extra 2013 LA Auto Exhibit coverage.
