Subaru Teases New 2015 WRX

New rally rocket set for debut at L.A. Auto Show.

by on Nov.12, 2013

Subaru will reveal the new WRX in LA next week.

Subaru is ready to roll out a new version of its familiar rally rocket, the WRX, at the upcoming L.A. Auto Show and after giving us a hint of what’s to come with a show car earlier this year, the Japanese maker wants to whet our appetite just a little more with this teaser image of the production model.

The image reveals the strong influence of the New York Auto Show concept vehicle, though as is so often the case, the actual 2015 Subaru WRX will clearly be toned down a little bit – while still giving us a more aggressive package than the similar Impreza model. Among other details that come through in the teaser shot: a new front fascia and grille flanked by LED accent lamps. One thing that doesn’t change: the familiar WRX hood scoop.

Powerful!

What remains to be learned at the L.A. Auto Show preview is whether Subaru will maintain both WRX body styles or drop the hatchback – as widely rumored – and stick with the sedan only. The teaser image is notably cropped to keep us guessing.

The Subaru WRX has developed quite a following over the years – and for good reason as it provides a performance option at a reasonably affordable price.

by on Nov.29, 2012

Subaru is betting the latest Forester remake will help it continue its ongoing string of sales records in 2013.

With 2012 already another notch in its string of five consecutive annual sales records, Subaru is preparing for a big 2013 as it launches the all-new 2014 Subaru Forester.

The latest model made its appearance durin the press previews for the Los Angeles Auto Show on its way to a spring arrival in U.S. showrooms.

While perhaps not quite the blockbuster of the original Outback line, the Forester has been a solid and reliable member of the Subaru line-up, sales increasing by 60% even during the deep automotive recession of recent years.  Now, with the U.S. auto industry in a spirited recovery, Subaru is hoping to gain even more momentum.

Auto Show News!

Tom Doll, Subaru’s chief operating officer, said the next generation Forester builds on the qualities that have made it so popular with owners over the years, combining both the all-wheel-drive capability of classic Subaru models with the aggressive spirit of the maker’s WRX.
