Default Crosstrek Hybrid and WRX Concept

Subaru is unveiling the Crosstrek Hybrid at the New York Auto Show right this moment:



And then there's the WRX Concept:



More details at http://www.subaru-global.com/2013ny.html .

I will stick with my MY06 Forester for now. However, I could picture both of the above in my driveway at some point in the future.

Slight undertones from the BRZ.

I like the new design language. But that's all it is. No info on what will be under hood and when the new WRX will be production ready.

Good find Escher

The WRX Concept actually looks alright
It will be interesting to see what's put under the bonnet (hood) of it

Regards
Mr Turbo

Last one for today, an interview with Masuda-san from Subaru about the WRX:

http://www.roadandtrack.com/car-show...suda-interview

Agree that the WRX concept looks good, Mr Turbo. Much better than most of what's come before. Of course, what's on the inside is what will make -- or break -- the new WRX. I am highly confident that Subaru's engineers will deliver a rally car that is more than worthy of the Subaru brand!

I am considering saving my pennies for the WRX. Although I need to find a new job and refinance the house first.

Walk-through of the new WRX design with Osamu Namba from the Subaru Design Department:

Funny enough, he says "character line" as part of his Japanese-language walk-through, but it's not mentioned in the English subtitles.
