The 2014 Subaru WRX which is expected to go on sale later during this year has been spied for the first time.
From the spy shots, it appears that the car looks a hotter STI version from the fact that it has huge rear wing which looks similar to the one seen on the 2013 WRX STI. This prototype also sports a more toned-down variant of the concept’s rear diffuser. The wheels look similar but now come with a black finish.
Overall, the styling of the car is not as electrifying as the concept that was showcased earlier in 2013 New York last month. This is mainly because of the fact that the production version may adopt a regular sedan body with narrower fenders, taller roof and smaller lower intakes.
The car will feature a 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter boxer engine but there is no clarity as of now as to whether it will involve turbocharging or not. However, there are chances that it will be a different variant of the mill found in the Subaru BRZ but with a bespoke direct-injection system. We can also expect an output of around 265 bhp (198 kW) for the regular WRX and a minimum of 305 bhp (227 kW) for the STI variant.
The company will probably offer the 2014 Subaru WRX with a balanced all-wheel drive system and in the usual sedan and hatchback body styles.
