Shorter, lower and wider than both the old WRX and the current Impreza, the Subaru WRX concept is finished in ‘WR Blue Pearl III’ paint, with a carbonfibre roof, fluorescent yellow brake callipers, WRX grille badge and exhaust details and sits on 20-inch BBS forged alloy wheels.


The next-generation Subaru WRX is likely to be unveiled at the Tokyo motor show in November, where fellow Japanese performance brand Nissan, is due to reveal an all-new sports car to sit alongside the 370Z and GT-R.
