In March at the Motor Show in New York, the Japanese company has introduced a family of fifth-generation Impreza. And this gave rise in the hearts of fans of Subaru hopes on the rapid emergence of new sports car WRX and WRX STI. However, as it turned out, the new car on a modular platform SGP we see only in the next decade.
Top managers of automotive little talked about plans to release new models.
This time, one of the leading engineers Subaru, who spoke about the future car. He admitted in 2018 WRX and WRX STI expects the planned restyling and the next generation of the new modular platform SGP (Subaru Global Platform) arrives no earlier than four to five years.
A year ago, the Japanese company reported that new cars can go as early as 2017 and will receive a hybrid powertrain – SGP platform originally designed for integration of electrical components. Debut next decade, however, looks much more logical, because the present generation WRX and WRX STI was not yet two years old, it would be wasteful so quickly write off its archive. In addition, the development of hybrid power plant – is troublesome for engineers Subaru and somewhat new. A commercialize crude product – not in the rules of the company.
