Fans Are Hungry For More Details On The Next Subaru WRX STI

It’s not that fans are getting impatient or anything, they just want something to chew on about the next Subaru WRX STI


  • It will visually be inspired by the Levorg and the Viziv concept.

  • Subaru’s turbocharged 2.4-litre engine should be at work under the bonnet.

  • We still do not have debut dates or spy photos.


What’s not helping out is that the Subaru Levorg wagon has just won the title Car of the Year Japan and that BRZ fans have now seen the next generation of their beloved RWD sports car. Add to this the fact that the new current-generation Impreza/Crosstrek has been out for almost three years and you get WRX STI fans wondering if Subaru’s forgotten all about them.

Staggered introductions are common for Subaru when it comes to their compact cars. The previous generation Impreza arrived in 2012 while the WRX STI only landed for 2015. So, the fact that the next WRX and WRX STI will only makes its official debut in spring 2021 (according to Motor1) isn’t out of line. What is however is that we’ve not yet seen any revealing spy shots as of yet.

Subaru Australia’s just celebrated their 10,000th delivery of the sport compact car and, when hinting at the next-gen version, said that it “is certain to push the performance and technological boundaries still further than its predecessors.”

This still leaves much to the imagination but at the very least, we can be almost certain that it will take visual inspiration from the Levorg wagon, the Viziv Performance STI concept and get a 400-horsepower version of the turbocharged 2.4-litre boxer-4.
