Subaru introduced at the 2013 New York Auto Show the spectacular WRX Concept, a car that hints at the design language of the next generation WRX. Lower, sleeker and wider than the current WRX, the WRX Concept has a bold and muscular design, which emphasizes turbocharged power and AWD grip in a more agile and athletic form.
The concept car features a larger and bolder grille design but also a pronounced powerbulge that provides clearance for the new turbocharged engine and intercooler. The three dimensional mesh pattern of the grille denotes the sporting nature of the concept car and sets the Subaru star cluster apart.
Furthermore, the front end features new hawk-eye headlights. The rear end also echoes the hexagonal design motif from the front grille and features a dramatically curved trunk lid that also acts as a rear spoiler.
The WRX Concept features a new paint color, “WR Blue Pearl III”, which modernizes the iconic WRX look. The BBS “RI-D” One Piece Forged Duralumin wheels wrapped in Dunlop tires complete the look and hide the Fluorescent Yellow brake calipers. Inside, the WRX Concept draws attention to the power and solidity of the body and focuses attention to wide stance that provides a visual link between body and chassis.
