The sportscar Subaru WRX STI and its cousins ​​WRX, can become two-bucket with the next generation. It is assumed that the car will again receive the coupe body, which was only the first version of the model.

According to the Japanese portal Best Car, the updated WRX will have an updated version of the FA20 two-liter turbo engine, which will work in conjunction with a continuously variable transmission with several sports modes. The car will also receive all-wheel drive with improvements made by Toyota, whose “daughter” will be Subaru in the near future.

Important changes will affect the version with a mechanical transmission. Unlike Toyota, which is not going to sell the Supra model with three pedals, Subaru will leave this option with a six-speed manual gearbox. It will be used in conjunction with the FA24 turbo engine, which will be completely aluminum after the upgrade. The same engine is likely to be installed on the next generation Subaru BRZ and its copy of the Toyota GT86.

Despite the fact that Subaru made a promise to create all new models on their own global basis SGP, what kind of “cart” will form the basis of the updated WRX is still unknown. There is a chance that it will be the same base as the BRZ / GT86, but at the same time there is a chance that a new generation of rally legend can be assembled on the Toyota TNGA.

The information that Subaru and Toyota will unite appeared only at the end of September – then the leadership of the two manufacturers entered into an agreement to expand cooperation and the bilateral purchase of new blocks of shares. Corporations want to reduce the cost of manufacturing new cars and jointly create the basis for the first electric car.
