Subaru WRX STi 2021 — 400-horsepower boxer engine and futuristic body.
The legendary Impreza is once again heard. The guys from Subaru began to show some movement to implement the concept shown back in 2017. Rumors that the rally car will receive a new engine and the body has become too much not to pay attention to them or remain a skeptic.

It is worth mentioning right away that all information about the upcoming Subaru WRX STi has not yet been confirmed by the manufacturer and is based on published insiders by such authoritative publications as Forbes and Drive.
And if the local editorial office writes something, then there are definitely good reasons for this. And so, as the new Impreza appears to the world, below.

So far the following is known. Subaru engineers plan to compete in power terms with their German counterparts, namely the tuned Mercedes AMG A45 S model, which is subject to 421 hp.

Recall that the engine, which is now installed in the current model of the Impreza, the legendary opposition player, was developed back in 89, and in addition to some minor elements, it has not changed for almost 30 years. The peak power of the unit reached 308 hp.

Now, another engine will be taken as the basis, namely the 2.4-liter FA24, which fans of the brand could already try on the 2018 models of the Legacy, Outback and Ascent models. Naturally, its 264 hp for WRX STi will not be enough.
They decided to increase power by increasing the boost power and processing several basic components, which are still unknown, but progress has already reached 400 hp. at all the same low speeds (490 Hm). And apparently they are not going to stop there.

Now it’s time to talk about another global update — the bodywork. Judging by the insiders, the Japanese plan to embody the spirit of the Impreza in the 2017 concept, for several reasons.

1. First, the last 20 years the body was updated insignificantly, and if earlier it was some kind of model chip, today such a trick is no longer appropriate.

2. The second reason follows from the first. Given the embodiment of bold design decisions by other brands, remember the same Cybertrack. Subaru is clearly the time to showcase its achievements in this niche, since most Japanese cars in recent years, to put it mildly, do not shine. Therefore, taking as a basis the eye-catching body at an exhibition of the bodywork is the only marketing decision that is the right one.

Regarding the appearance of the concept, we can safely say that it is successful in all plans. The new silhouette and dimensions fully reflect the concept of the Impreza, emphasize its individuality and demonstrate readiness for change.
Dimensions are still speculative. If the presented body concept is launched, the new product will become larger.

Unfortunately, so far not even a grain of information is known about the salon. Introduced in Tokyo, the Subaru WRX STi concept then did not showcase interior options.
While there is every reason to believe that it does not yet exist in nature.

It’s too early to talk about competition, but one cannot but say that many people buy Impreza without looking at their analogues.
This car has rightfully become a cult, and if a German costs at least $ 10,000 cheaper, while still showing the same power, the Japanese will still be bought just because it’s the Impreza, not to mention the mass-power ratio, which the Germans imagine they cannot allow it.

Price and sales start date

Subaru fans expect the new product to be unveiled at least by the end of 2020. But in reality, this is more likely to happen in March 2021.
Most likely, such a significant event for the company will coincide with some major spring auto show, and the supercar will go on sale no earlier than 2022.

Regarding the price tag, if the current Impreza today costs 2.4 million rubles, then the new generation should recover in price, given how much resources are currently being applied to create new items.
