The 2017 Subaru WRX concept is a highly anticipated model of the Subaru line, which is expected to arrive very soon. Little upgrades, as well as very subtle alterations, will most definitely be related primarily to its features while the overall body and style will remain very much the same. However, the rumors which suggested that the 2017 Subaru WRX will feature a hatchback are not expected to be true for this year’s design. Based on reliable sources, the hatch version is expected to be featured in the 2018 model year and not before. However, the officials at Subaru have not yet validated or denied any of these reports so Subaru fans will need to wait for the official release in order to be completely sure exactly what will be featured and not featured.
2017 Subaru WRX – Stylish Exterior Design:
The 2017 Subaru WRX coupe exterior will be the same as its previous model. Its styling elements and physique will most certainly be a roll-over while the one new point that is going to be included in this 2017 model is new paint choices. Both the normal WRX and the WRX Sti versions will be available, each with complete three trim degrees ready. The 2017 Subaru WRX is no longer expected to carry the Impreza label or its styling. The car has taken on an identity of its own, only sharing a few pieces of glass with its more mainstream counterpart. The front and rear fenders will flare aggressively, the nose end front design will be unique to this model, and even the windshield pillars will be thinner so as to provide better visibility. Buyers will also have the option of substituting the standard humongous rear wing with a smaller rear spoiler.
The new Subaru WRX’s interior will include soft-touch upper dash and door panels, a full-color driver information display between its gauges, a leather-wrapped flat-bottom steering wheel, and an 8-way powered driver seat. The 2017 Subaru WRX will also feature climate control, audio system with 6 speakers, CD player, HD Radio, 4.3-inch display screen, USB/iPod user interface, Bluetooth link, as well as other convenient attributes such as flexible seats.
2017 Subaru WRX – Engine and Performance:
The Subaru WRX’s engine will largely depend on the variations; however, both of them will be fitted with four-wheel drive as the only option. Under the hood of the car, we will expect to see a turbocharged 2.0 liter, flat opposed four-cylinder boxer engine. Its power output will be rated at 268 hp and also 258 lb-ft of torque. It can be loaded with a 6-speed manual transmission, which will actually be a requirement, or a CVT steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, which is optional. The 2017 Subaru WRX Sti will make use of stronger powertrain as it is a sportier version of both. It will come loaded with a turbocharged 2.5 liters horizontally opposed four-cylinder boxer engine. The whole system will be capable of producing a power output of 305 hp and 290 lb-ft of torque. This design does not, however, offer CVT yet, but will still feature the standard 6-speed guidebook. The energy economic situation for a normal WRX will depend on the transmission. It will be ranked at 21 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on a freeway for the 6-speed manual transmission and 19 mpg on the city and 25 mpg on a highway for the CVT.
2017 Subaru WRX – Price and Release Date:
The new Subaru WRX’s official release date has not yet been released but is expected to be available in the early months of 2016. As for the price, it is expected to be around $27,000 – $37,000.
