Monday, December 26th 2016. | Subaru

Subaru created big impact on the sports car class after releasing the WRX on North American market in the beginning of 2000. After that, the launch of STI was started even faster than the original version. They launched the more powerful model with the turbo power all-wheel unit to make it one step ahead. But, we have to say that the current WRX STI is a bit old, so Subaru considered redesigning this model with biggest modification on its engine. The information is still unclear but here is we can gain about 2018 Subaru WRX.

If you check its current model, you might have a big question why the company provides redesign, but surely it needs. As you know, it was about twelve years and we didn’t see any big modifications, they only provided minor refreshments and everything was the same as the predecessor. It means that there will be something to change to make it different from before. If we compare the new fifth generation of Impreza, this car has LED technology, C-shaped headlights and of course the 2018 Subaru WRX will take after this model. It might have the same front grille shape as the original model with the STI logo in the center. The size is slightly larger than the previous model but it is a bit hard to see the enlargement.

In fact, the larger dimension provides more space inside. It might go with high-quality materials as well as Alcantara seats to make it possible to give you high level of comfort. It is also designed with 8-inch of touch screen display placed on the dashboard. Usually, they only provide the touchscreen not larger than six or seven-inch of diameter for 2018 Subaru WRX.

2018 Subaru WRX Engine

2018 Subaru WRX has new engine design. It is true that the turbo flat-four 2.5 liter is still a great engine that is capable to produce about 300 hp and it was a great engine output at the first time it was launched, but it is impossible to wear the same pair of shoes for about twelve years. It seems the company should give a change on it. Therefore, probably they will use the new engine that can be more than the New Impreza which received 2.0 liter unit with direct injection. It is also speculated to have hybrid engine with the 2.0 liter flat-four engine and electric motor. It works with dual-clutch six-speed manual gearbox to deliver about 322 hp and its acceleration from 0 to 60 mph can be done in 4.5 seconds while the top speed is 160 mph. The fuel consumption is 35 mpg.

2018 Subaru WRX Release Date and Price

2018 Subaru WRX should be ready somewhere in 2017. The current price is $35,000 but with the use of hybrid engine, this successor might have more expensive cost. It is expected to be about $40,000.
