[VIDEO] Subaru WRX spied on public roads image

Subaru has been recently spotted testing the new WRX on public roads, where the model seemed to be ready to go on sale.

The 2014 Subaru WRX has different styling compared to the one presented in New York and the final production version seems to get narrower fenders, smaller lower intakes, taller roof, a regular sedan body, a toned-down variant of the diffuser found on the concept and similar wheels. The 2014 Subaru WRX might actually become a hotter version of the STI, but we don’t have a clue on this just yet.

Power to the 2014 Subaru WRX should be provided by a 2.0 liter boxer four-cylinder engine, which might produce around 265 HP (198 kW) or 305 HP (227 kW). No turbocharging details are known for the moment but the model is expected to get a symmetrical AWD system. The 2014 Subaru WRX will probably go on sale later on this year, so keep close in order to find out when the model will be launched.

As a quick reminder, the Subaru WRX Concept has been officially presented to the public during the 2013 New York Auto Show. The model has a hood intake, a prominent grille, hawk-eye headlights, a carbon fiber roof, a trunk lid with built-in spoiler, and a quad exhaust system with fluorescent yellow finish. The model also has WRX badging on the brake calipers, contrasting with the WR Blue Pearl III paint job, and it’s riding on 20-inch BBS forged wheels, wrapped in Dunlop tires.
