04/10/2013

Subaru of America, Inc. has unveiled the WRX concept at the 2013 New York International Auto Show.

Online PR News – 10-April-2013 – Newport News, VA – Last week at the 2013 New York International Auto Show, Subaru of America, Inc. unveiled the latest concept vehicle aimed for the Subaru lineup: the Subaru WRX. The show is open to the public this week at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York City, reports local Newport News car dealership, Casey Subaru.

The newest concept for the next-generation WRX is all about style, modified to reflect sportier and more contemporary design language. Offered in a new paint color, “WR Blue Pearl III,” combined with Fluorescent Yellow accents on the badge, brake calipers, and exhaust tip finishers, the WRX is bolder and brighter than ever.

The muscular design reflects the turbocharged power of the all-wheel drive performance car. The newest WRX will continue the legacy of athletic form, a communicative chassis, precise steering, and sharp handling, improved by a carbon-fiber roof (enhancing the low center of gravity and decreasing weight). The WRX is low to the ground for a more athletic appeal, featuring a new grille design, a powerbulge (for the all-new turbocharged engine and intercooler which ride beneath the hood), and a hexagonal grille form, as well as lower valences with air intakes. For increased speed, power, and efficiency, the WRX features optimal aerodynamic design.

Sharp characters lines, hawk-eye headlights, and an updated cabin mark the new WRX. The sports car will also feature a wide rear bumper, a trunk lid that functions as a spoiler, and an aggressive rear diffuser.

The overall length of the WRX is 178.0 inches; width is 74.4 inches; height is 54.7 inches. The wheelbase comes in at 108.7 inches.

Figures on vehicle performance have not been released. They are likely to be provided upon manufacturing of the production model.

It is not yet known when the updated WRX will arrive at Casey Subaru, as a release date has not yet been set.
