We watched a new Subaru WRX furtively
In 2013, at the New York Auto Show when the Subaru Company introduced a new WRX at the first time, they gave promises that the final car would not look like the Impreza model because WRX was based on the Impreza platform.
Unfortunately, after this announcement we watched the new Subaru vehicle and it still resemble the Impreza. In either event, the WRX of 2015 has similar lights, fender vents, and a grille and rear diffuser.
The new WRX has a taller roof, narrow fenders and side mirrors are located on the doors, small and lower air intakes. Besides, it gets a symmetrical all-wheel drive system as a standard.
The 2015 car is equipped with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder opposed engine like the BRZ but with its own direct-injection system. We have not still known if power of the WRX will be carried out owing to a turbocharger or the Subaru brand will create and use some new technologies.
The smaller volume of an engine (2.0-liter) allows reducing fuel consumption that is necessary for motorsport classes of vehicles. Power rates of the 2015 WRX will not differ much from current indexes. The standard WRX will issue 265 horsepower but the WRX STI will have power of 305 horsepower. Although, the car characteristics will be improved due to reducing the weight of a vehicle.
