Subaru Impreza WRX at New Subaru WRX Comes With 270 hp

The next generation Subaru WRX, no longer an Impreza, will get 270-hp courtesy of a turbocharged 2.0-liter flat-four engine.

This engine is apparently the turbocharged version of the BRZ’s FA20 engine which might be used in a hot version of the sports coupe as well. It replaces the current 2.5 liter unit which makes roughly the same power, but the 2.0 liter will be more fuel efficient.

The new WRX will also be lighter and more focused than the current gen and will be more of a sports car. That’s why Subaru has dropped the Impreza name and reserved it only for the normal family models. The WRX will get a sportier design as well.

With these consideration, the next WRX, to be launche din at least two years, could be a 30 mpg sports saloon offering a whole new driving experience.What’s more exciting is the STI version. With the standard WRX getting 270 hp, the STI should be getting like 350. Oh joy!

Looking forward to it.
