Subaru's New Wagon Hints At The Next WRX

JDM / Comments

If so, we'll love what's coming.

Subaru is a brand loved for its reliability and practical cars that can tackle far more daunting off-road duties than their appearance suggests. As much as the brand is adored here, we don't get all its products, and the latest is a wagon called the Levorg. It's a very strange name derived from LEgacy, reVOlution, and touRinG, but what we're most interested in is its styling. While we've already seen leaks of the new Subaru WRX on the inside, we have yet to see what the exterior will look like, and this new wagon looks a lot like an evolution of the old WRX.

The all-new model of the Levorg has much sharper styling than the outgoing WRX, with wraparound headlights, aggressive lower intakes with fog lights, and a prominent chrome-detailed grille. The side profile makes this look more like an elongated hatch than a wagon thanks to clever creases, most notably around the rear three-quarter area. The muscular rear fenders on this wagon are a great sign that the upcoming WRX will retain its aggressive styling, and perhaps the STI version will have even more aggressive quarter panels. At the rear, stunning new taillights are connected by a subtle chrome strip, while fake vents and a dual-exit exhaust add more visual width.

Overall, this wagon is far prettier than the Forester we get here, and it looks mean. If this is what Subaru can do with a family car, imagine how mean the top-tier WRX could be? While we wait for this new rally-bred sedan to debut, there's a WRX Club Spec on offer that gets upgrades from the STI. You may want to get one of these as it's possible that a 2.0-liter flat-four won't be seen inside a WRX again.

Rumors suggest that either a 1.8-liter turbo or a 2.4-liter turbo in the STI will produce at least 400 horsepower. No matter what powers the new model, the Levorg shows that it will look awesome.
