SUBARU TEASES STI CON­CEPT

Motor (Australia) - - THE NEWS -

IS THIS the new Subaru WRX STI? We don’t know, and we’re not sure Subaru knows either, as it pro­vided next to no de­tails about its ‘VIZIV Per­for­mance STI Con­cept’ dis­played at the 2018 Tokyo Auto Sa­lon. A jazzed-up ver­sion of the VIZIV con­cept shown at the 2017 Tokyo Mo­tor Show, Subaru says the STI Con­cept “show­cases [STI’s] ex­per­tise on en­hanc­ing driv­ing per­for­mance by de­vel­op­ing ex­clu­sive ex­te­rior parts.” As such, the Con­cept scores a new front bumper, side skirts and high-rid­ing spoiler which “evoke STI model’s su­pe­rior aero­dy­namic per­for­mance.” Quite. Ru­mours sug­gest a new WRX and WRX STI, based on the plat­form of the all-new Im­preza, will ap­pear around 2020, but Subaru is tight-lipped on the sub­ject, re­fus­ing to con­firm that the VIZIV even points to­wards the pos­si­ble fu­ture de­sign lan­guage of the iconic sports sedan.
