Allegedly official 2015 Subaru WRX STI images hit the web

 Allegedly official 2015 Subaru WRX STI images hit the web
2015 Subaru WRX STI leaked official photo

To be shown at NAIAS

The first allegedly official images of the 2015 Subaru WRX STI have been published online, ahead of a confirmed NAIAS debut later this month.

Subaru introduced the 2015 WRX back in November at the Los Angeles Auto Show and now we catch a first glimpse at the hotter STI variant which adopts a more aggressive body kit painted in Subaru's traditional World Rally Blue matched with golden alloy wheels. Apparently this finish will be reserved initially for a first edition which is likely to come with other enhancements.

While the aforementioned WRX makes use of a 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter boxer rated at 268 bhp (200 kW) and 258 lb-ft (349 Nm), the STI is rumored to get a larger 2.5-liter turbocharged four-banger with 300 bhp (224 kW) and 290 lb-ft (393 Nm).

Already teased, Subaru will unveil its “iconic performance flagship model” later this January in Detroit.

Subaru got soft with the STI, the 98' version looks meaner than this and the gas mileage is pretty bad.

The only way Japanese can make a fast car is to make it more raw and less comfortable. Their excuse is low price. Germans on the other hand can do fast while retaining all luxury and comfort. These days, German cars are closing the price gap in their performance car models. There is no more valid reason to buy a Jap sportscar anymore.

It need more poweeeeer! Or get a nicer price. In a world where A class gets 360 bhp, does 0-60 mph in 4.2s, and costs roughly the same as STI, this car is either underpowered or too pricey.

Looks common and dated. And the side profile remembers me of the NA Civic which is a bad thing in my opinion. Not an eye catcher...

They have to change those Toyota Tecel tail-lights from 1988, it's making the whole car looks damn cheap!
