The Subaru Impreza is beginning to hit dealers and that is causing everyone to wonder when the next WRX and STI are coming.
Motoring spoke with a senior Subaru engineer who revealed that the next-generation WRX/STI will not arrive till 2020.
“The WRX will have a facelift soon, not a full model cycle, because the new model just launched in 2015,” said the engineer.
“The full model cycle will be about four or five years, and that’s when you’ll see a full model. We would love to have the WRX on the new platform, because the car would be a lot better … but the 2018 will be a facelift only.”
Rumor has it that the next WRX will adopt some sort of hybrid powertrain that will increase power and reduce emissions.
