The Impreza has been Subaru’s best known car for decades. It is also the car that started the high performance sedan craze thanks to the WRX and WRX STI. Throughout the years things changed and the two high performance versions of the Impreza became standalone models. This also meant that Subaru was no longer required to update the cars together with the regular model. This has been the case for a while. In fact while the Impreza has been completely revised last year, both the WRX and WRX STI remained mostly unchanged. Subaru even went ahead to say that the two cars are unique cars which require a development cycle.
Even though it became clear a new WRX won’t be released anytime soon, it seems the car might be revealed with the 2019 Subaru WRX. Like with the regular Impreza, the new WRX is more than likely going to use the same platform as the new Impreza.
The car will benefit from the 70 to 100% increased rigidity and lower center of gravity. However, the WRX will get a bespoke running gear, a new engine and an upgraded interior. The end result should be a far superior model to the one before it. The price is more than likely going to stay roughly the same as before in order to remain competitive.
The 2019 Subaru WRX will definitely keep true to its origins, so it will still be based on the Impreza. In the front the car will benefit from Impreza’s wider body and lower front end. If we had to guess then a hood scoop together with a front splitter are already a given at this point.
The 2019 Subaru Wrx Sti offers outstanding style and technology both inside and out.
