Subaru teases VIZIV Performance STi concept

Subaru teases VIZIV Performance STi concept

At the upcoming Tokyo Auto Salon Subaru will take the wraps off a new evolution of the VIZIV concept that debuted at last year's Tokyo Motor Show. It gave us a preview of things to come from the Japanese automaker, especially with hints of it becoming the next-generation Impreza.

Few details aside from a teaser image have been released by Subaru, but building on the 2017 VIZIV Performance Concept, this STI version looks to pick up some of the styling cues that have made Subaru STI models so iconic in the past. It also sports red accents and copious amounts of STI logos plastered all over the body to remind you that this is the hot version of the WRX.

More importantly, while entitled only as a prototype, the new Viziv Performance STI concept is nearly for sure the appetizer for the upcoming new generation WRX STI, a model that remains one of the legends in the segment.

Apart from the exterior photos no detail have yet been released by Subaru regarding the Viziv Performance STI concept. At the rear, Subaru has fitted the signature STI wing.

Instead, Subaru is exploring the possibility of electrification to extract more performance, with rumors suggesting the next WRX will be powered by a smaller 2.0-liter boxer unit driving the front wheels with an electric motor powering the rear axle.

The Viziv concept we saw last autumn in Tokyo was already a crowd-pleasing design, but as we'd expect with an STI model, the images we've been given ahead of the full reveal of this one shows a much flashier vehicle altogether. It is likely to use a newer turbocharged 2.0-liter boxer engine.
