With only few days left, everyone is excited for the commencement of the NAIAS (North American International Auto Show) in Detroit next week.
The companies which have already given hints about what they will showcase in the show are expected to headline America’s most prestigious auto show.
Automobile manufacturers such as BMW and Chevrolet will unveil the latest M3 (and M4 coupe) and Corvette Z06, respectively, while Lexus will introduce the RC F, a performance version of its new coupe.
Reports suggest that Subaru, the Japanese automobile manufacturer has also confirmed that it will unveil the hottest version of its Impreza-based rally car at Detroit.
The car was more evolution than revolution at the time when the 2015 WRX was launched at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show, so everyone is expecting the same from the STI.
Rumors are that it will be capable of delivering more power as compared to the current model’s 305 horsepower and 290 pound-feet of torque.
The increased power will be delivered by an upgraded version of the 2015 WRX’s 2.0-liter turbocharged, direct-injected boxer-four, there also might be a possibility that the new STI will retain the current model’s 2.5-liter displacement.
The six-speed manual transmission will be standard. Whereas, the 2015 WRX’s optional CVT appear not to be a part of this performance model.
Both the models the STI and WRX are expected to be distinguished on the basis of styling. But, the old optional hatchback body style will surely be not followed. The STI will also be a sedan like the WRX.
The company has not revealed much about the WRX STI’s January 14 unveiling, but it seems that the company will be following the same old trend.
