    Rumorpile: Subaru Advance Tourer Previewing Next WRX?

    Remember the Subaru Advance Tourer concept from the 2011 Tokyo Auto Show? If not, it was a polarizing wagon concept that many believed was a preview for the next Legacy. However, a new report from Motor Trend says the concept is actually a preview of the next generation WRX.

    The next generation WRX and STI will split from the Impreza and utilize a separate platform. Powertrain is expected to be either a turbocharged 1.6L or 2.0L four-cylinder. Also being thrown around is a hybrid version of the 1.6L.

    Sources say the front end design of the Advanced Tourer will make its way to the new WRX, along with other aspects.

    This I think will be the start of bland reduced performance auto's as Subaru gets consumed by Toyota.

    Or this is a wake up to Toyota that finally realizes that dull bland cars are only for a small select group of bland dull humans. The rest desire variety and stimulus provoking rides.

    Think of an STI running 130 octane CNG. :P
