The Subaru Levorg STI Sport Prototype has been revealed at the 2020 Tokyo Auto Salon.
Being an STI Sport, rather a full-blown STI, model, the latest Prototype doesn't differ too much, at least visually, from the car shown at last year's Tokyo motor show.
Changes include STI badges on the grille and tailgate, an additional set of lights above the fog lights, STI-branded exhaust finishers, and a more aggressive rear diffuser.
There's also a unique set of alloy wheels, front and rear splitters, and extensions for the side sills.
The Levorg STI Sport Prototype is said to be the first Subaru to feature electronically controlled dampers.
It also features a series of selectable driving modes, which alter the steering, damper, and AWD system settings. It also ties into the company's SI Drive unit that allows the driver to select different engine and transmission setups.
Sadly the windows are blacked out, so we don't know, yet, how different the Levorg's interior will be compared to the Impreza's. If the current Levorg and previous-generation Impreza are anything to go by, most components will be shared.
Subaru hasn't spilled any details about the Levorg STI Sport Prototype's drivetrain, but last year's show car was powered by a new 1.8-litre turbocharged four-cylinder boxer engine.
The new Levorg is scheduled to on sale in Japan during the second half of 2020, which likely means it will be available Down Under either in late 2020 or the first half of 2021.
