Fans of turbocharging, all-wheel drive, rally racing Compact sports car In the past ten years, their choice has been reduced from two icons-Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution and Subaru WRX-to one. Subaru WRXAt least the recent WRX is a good performance deal, even if it lacks the direct stimulation of earlier models. Can the next generation of WRX raise the stakes? One thing is certain: we know it will retain its iconic hood scoop. Credit the teaser photos of the new rally rocket.
Curious about the release time of the new Subie? The same is true for us-the automaker just shared that the new WRX will make its debut “this year”. We are about half of 2021, so it may have to wait, even if from the above photos, the new WRX sedan seems to have taken a physical form, at least some similarities (at least in appearance) Viziv performance with Viziv Performance STI Concept Car.
As for what’s under the WRX hood scoop… well, it’s still unclear.Past reports regarded WRX as an acquisition The new FA series 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, The more powerful WRX STI model may output up to 400 horsepower.If the new 2.4-liter is related to the same size turbine engine available Subaru Legacy, Outback and Ascent, it can output a similar 260 horsepower in the new WRX. Throwing away 400 ponies may require major repairs.
Today’s WRX uses a 268-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, while STI uses the company’s long-used EJ 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine to propel up to 341 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque from the crankshaft. It is entirely possible that the 2.4-liter engine will surpass its predecessor’s tuning status in the new WRX and WRX STI, but we need to wait for Subaru to reveal more official information, including whether the WRX series will again be only in the form of a sedan (as shown in the picture above) or Will the station wagon/hatchback make a comeback in 2022?
