Facelifted Subaru WRX Coming In 2018, Redesign After 2020

The Subaru WRX STI is set to receive major updates but not soon enough.

The Subaru Impreza might be all-new for 2017, but we'll have to wait a couple more years to see a completely new WRX and STI.

The Subaru WRX's most recent complete overhaul only debuted in the 2015 model year, but fans are constantly looking forward to what's next for the rally-bred legend.

"We would love to have the WRX on the new platform, because the vehicle would be a lot better ... but the 2018 will be a facelift only", the source said. In terms of power, the previous version had an output of 290 horsepower. As reported by motoring.com.au, the WRX will get a mid-cycle refresh for 2018, and a wholly new auto won't arrive until around 2020. In the aesthetic aspect, there are only a handful of changes made as reported. Despite persistent rumors, neitehr Subaru nor Toyota have confirmed plans to introduced forced induction for the platform. "You can't shorten that production cycle".

We do not know what upgrades the 2018 refresh model will be getting but some people have speculated that Subaru might ditch the 2.5 liters turbocharged engine in favor of a newer 2.0 liter turbocharged engine. It's the amount of time it takes to develop a new model. There's many things to consider such as durability testing and likewise.
