Subaru unveiled a WRX concept car, last week, at America's New York Motor Show.

Fuji Heavy Industries (FHI), the maker of Subaru vehicles, says the lower, wider, WRX concept hints at the design language of the next-generation WRX.

The front design emphasises the aggressive stance of WRX, together with solidity and stability.

A prominent classic Subaru hexagonal grille has a three dimensional mesh pattern, in keeping with WRX’s sporty nature, together with the 'hawk-eye' headlights.

The WRX concept sedan is low and sleek, with a more powerful design than previous production versions.

A large opening in the front bumper, plus a classic WRX bonnet scoop, mudguard ducts and flared wheel arches denote the powerful turbocharged engine performance and handling.

A sharp character line runs from the front guard through to the rear, intersected by powerful wheel arches, emphasising WRX’s renowned all-wheel drive capability.

The rear design echoes the hexagonal design motif from the front grille and features a dramatically curved boot lid that also acts as a rear spoiler.

The wide rear bumper adds to the powerful street presence of the car and is offset by large quad exhausts, while the aggressive rear diffuser improves vehicle aerodynamics.

To further enhance handling dynamics, the concept features a carbon roof for a lower centre of gravity and lighter weight.

The concept colour is “WR Blue Pearl III” and modernises the traditional WRX look.

Fluorescent Yellow is used as an accent on the WRX front grille badge, brake callipers and the exhaust finisher, adding character notes to the design.

The 245/40ZR20 Dunlop tyres have an exclusive design tread pattern. The wheels are BBS “RI-D” One Piece Forged Duralumin.

Body size Overall Length x Width x Height): 4,520 X 1,890 X 1,390 mm.

Wheelbase: 2,760 mm.

FHI is yet to confirm timing for the unveiling and launch details of next generation WRX.
