Subaru Viziv Performance STI Concept to be next-gen WRX STI?

Subaru Viziv Performance STI concept

It gave us a preview of things to come from the Japanese automaker, especially with hints of it becoming the next-generation Impreza.

Hopefully, we'll find out more when the VIZIV Performance STI Concept makes its official debut. That's now starting to seem like something of a certainty now that Subaru has revealed teaser images ahead of the Tokyo Auto Salon (January 12-14) of the Viziv Performance STI Concept, which looks to be a preview of the next WRX STI. While most of the vehicle is still hidden in the photo, we do see the signature STI red/pink accents and logos added throughout the body. However, the new WRX and WRX STI were recently said to be scheduled for 2020 and that they could utilize some form of hybrid propulsion system. Winglets can also be seen protruding from the sides of the rear wing, presumably to improve the airflow. There are no details about the technical prowess, but we already know for sure that all coming Subaru models will be based on the new Subaru Global Platform, which also doesn't exclude the opportunity to use a hybrid powertrain.

Jennifer Lopez Guest-Starring On "Will & Grace"
The episode is perhaps most memorable for giving Jack his big moment to live out his dream as one of her backup dancers. During the episode, Lopez poked fun at herself, demanding everyone wear her new Glow fragrance and branded jeans.

Instead, Subaru is exploring the possibility of electrification to extract more performance, with rumors suggesting the next WRX will be powered by a smaller 2.0-liter boxer unit driving the front wheels with an electric motor powering the rear axle. Last year's VIZIV concept retained a "boxer" engine and four-wheel drive, so it's likely that the STi version will too.

More details will be released at the Tokyo Auto Salon opening in a few days.
