The structure underpinning the next generation car would be the Subaru Global Platform, which debuted with the current-generation Impreza. The Tourer’s design language teased with this shot matches the sharp detailing of the Viziv Performance STI seen at the Tokyo Auto Salon, including the taillights. We would expect the front to be a dead ringer, too.
The WRX has been with us for over half of Subaru’s 50-year history, and it’s definitely a core part of the brand’s aesthetic. “Pretty” hasn’t always been the word that would best define every single WRX generation, but they have always been distinctly Subaru — the five-door variants included. Here’s hoping the Tourer makes for a good-looking production car.
