Subaru Not Planning To Release New WRX Until 2020

Subaru Not Planning To Release New WRX Until 2020! Speaking to Australia’s Motoring, a senior engineer at Subaru stopped rumors suspecting the new WRX in 2018 saying, “The WRX will have a facelift soon, not a full model cycle, because the new model just launched in 2015. The full model cycle will be about four or five years, and that’s when you’ll see a full model.”

The current 2017 WRX is a great sports vehicle that can outrace a Porsche and a McLaren, so it makes sense that Subaru wants to hold off on a full update for a few years. Apparently though, the main thing holding an update back is the time it takes to develop a new model, “You can’t shorten that production cycle. There’s many things to consider such as durability testing and likewise. It’s not as simple as taking the turbo engine out of one car and presto, off you go.”

Subaru is working to get the WRX ready for the new global platform, but 2018 will be a facelift only. For more dealership specials and deals, follow Wilde Subaru on Twitter or Like us on Facebook.
