New Subaru WRX debuts at Los Angeles Auto Show

Subaru has unveiled a new WRC at Los Angeles Motor Show. The US-spec model is equipped with new 268bhp 2.0-litre turbo Boxer engine linked to either six-speed manual and Sport Lineartronic transmissions, sending power to Subaru’s Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system.

With the manual, the new WRX goes from 0-60mph in 5.4 seconds.

All-new design is nothing special and compared to the WRX Concept it looks kind of boring.

It has the typical evolutionary aggressive look, but nothing that makes you say WOW. The aggressive design of the concept is refined and toned down a lot. Exterior features include hexagonal grille, new ‘hawkeye’ headlights, a sleeker silhouette, diffuser and twin exhausts integrated into the rear bumper.

New body is stiffer and tuned suspension have quickened the vehicle’s response to driver inputs.

The wheelbase of the new model is stretched by 25mm to 2,650mm, expanding rear legroom.

Interior features higher quality materials and improved design over the outgoing model. You can see a new flat-bottomed steering wheel and supportive sports seats, subtle silver ‘WRX’ logos, red stitching and red lighting, as well as a new 3.5-inch LCD colour display.

The new WRX will go on sale in North America and Japan later in 2014. Subaru has not confirmed whether a new WRX model will come to the UK.
