2015 Subaru WRX revealed ahead of LA Auto ShowMon, 11 Nov 2013
Subaru's 2015 WRX model is slated to make its world debut at the LA Auto Show, but we're getting an advanced look a the enthusiast favorite thanks to a brief teaser video and what may be a leaked image of the sedan making the rounds on the Web.
The Japanese automaker has kept the new WRX pretty tightly under wraps. Besides the WRX concept we saw at the New York auto show , Subaru has released little more than a seven-second teaser video.
But the above image, recently posted to the Clubrz Facebook page, may show much more of the hot sedan. Possibly a rendering, it shows lights and scoop we saw in the teaser on what appears to be a rather sensible sedan body. Though hints of the WRX Concept remain in the production version, especially in the front fascia, the overall form is far tamer. That's a bit disappointing, but it wouldn't be the first time cool concept touches are lost in the translation to production vehicle.
There hasn't been any word on the 2015 WRX's specs, but we're assuming the winning formula of a turbocharged I4, all-wheel drive setup with a manual transmission available will return.
If you need something a little more practical than a sedan, we're sorry to report that -- according to rumors -- there's no WRX hatchback in the works.
We hope to confirm the details in the coming weeks. To get the full scoop, you'll have to just stay tuned for our coverage of the LA Auto Show coming up next week.
