Subaru has released a pair of teaser images of its new Viziv Performance STI Concept, which likely previews the Japanese brand’s next-generation WRX STI.
The fresh version of the show car (based on the Viziv Performance Concept sports sedan revealed in 2017) will be revealed at the Tokyo Motor Show later this month.
The Shibuya-based automaker says the new Subaru Viziv Performance STI Concept “embodies the brand’s vision for the future of making cars that deliver enjoyment and peace of mind to its customers”.
The STI model will apparently showcase Subaru’s “expertise on enhancing driving performance by developing exclusive exterior parts”. The brand says the new concept’s front bumper, side-sills and rear spoiler all “evoke STI’s superior aerodynamic performance”. Yes, the massive wing has been retained.
No word yet on what will power the latest concept. Late last year, though, reports suggested that the next-generation WRX might not be powered by an engine featuring the brand’s signature boxer configuration (though it would likely retain the automaker’s signature symmetrical all-wheel drive).
