Info Subaru Says Turbocharging to Continue for Next-Gen WRX/STI, STI Will Still Have 300+

Besides confirming the U.S.-market name for its new small crossover, Subaru also used the L.A. auto show to reassure the assembled media that the rear-drive-only BRZ doesn’t signal the end of its AWD hot rods. It comes on the heels of the news that the next-generation WRX and STI will for the first time use their own distinct platform, thereby splitting the enthusiast models from the workaday Impreza on which they’ve previously been based.
At L.A., Subaru also said that the WRX will continue to be turbocharged, dusting fools with a forced-induction version of the carmaker’s new 2.0-liter “FB” boxer four. The STI version will still produce over 300 hp, the company said, and we believe curb weights for both will come down as a result of the new platform. As you’d expect with the cars on different platforms, the next-gen WRX and STI will drop “Impreza” from their names when they arrive a couple of years from now, giving Subaru a trio of three-letter cars for enthusiasts.
