2013 Subaru WRX Concept
We’re not sure who broke the images of Subaru’s sexed-up sedan, but we first spotted them on Road & Track. Though they look a lot like renderings, word is that they’re actually photographs of the concept, heavily stylized to look like renderings.
Details, as you’d imagine, are scarce. The blacked-out greenhouse tells us that the car’s interior is likely to remain a mystery for the near future at least, and it’s a safe bet that the car will get a turbocharged flat-four engine sending power to all four wheels.
How much power, and what kind of transmission the car will shift through remains a mystery. We doubt those oversized wheels, massive brake rotors and diminutive mirrors will live to see production, but they certainly do look good on the concept.
More importantly, the WRX now clearly stands on its own, style wise, and no longer resembles the Impreza on which it was previously based. Let’s hope that design mission carries over into the cabin, too, since that’s undeniably a weak point of the current WRX.
We’ll bring you all the details, as well as live photos, as part of our complete New York Auto Show coverage.
