The pictures of all new Subaru WRX saloon have emerged and it is based on the US-market four-door Impreza. It takes styling cues from the WRX Concept shown at the 2013 New York Motor Show. The spy pictures show that the new car will take its looks from the four-door Impreza range.

The production ready model is likely to be offered with the new WR Blue Pearl III paint used on the concept, along with its feature fluorescent yellow brake calipers. A carbon fibre roof, to reduce the car’s centre of gravity, could also be offered. Under the bonnet, the WRX is likely to feature an uprated version of the engine that’s fitted to the new Subaru Forester Turbo. That unit uses the 2.0-litre direct-injection boxer engine from the BRZ with a turbocharger fitted underneath.

In the Forester, this develops 237bhp, 40bhp and 145Nm more torque than the BRZ and this would be further increased for the WRX. A hybrid WRX STi, producing over 300bhp, is also believed to be under consideration. What’s not certain is whether the car will make it to the UK. The Impreza and the WRX aren’t currently part of the UK line-up, as the combination of low fuel efficiency and the strength of the Japanese yen has stifled sales.
