Subaru Viziv STI Performance Concept Loosely Hints At Next WRX 12

Subaru wants to lure visitors at the 2018 Tokyo Auto Salon to its stand with a new concept car, the Viziv Performance STI.

The study builds upon last year’s Viziv, albeit with some styling changes made all around, with the most significant one being the large wing added to the boot.

Look closer and you will also see a tweaked rear diffuser made from carbon fiber, new side sills, reshaped front bumper with larger air intakes and STI branding, and a slightly modified grille. Emphasizing its sportier stance are the red accents applied to different parts of the exterior.

The rest of the car, though, appears to have remained untouched, but then again, at the time of writing, Subaru hasn’t treated us with an official press release, so the live images are all we’ve got.

Nevertheless, the new Subaru Viziv Performance STI is said to preview the next generation WRX STI, but knowing that the Japanese car marque tends to drastically tone down its concepts for production, this one will likely follow the same route.

Expected to arrive within the next few years, the upcoming Subaru WRX STI is believed to drop the current 2.5-liter Boxer engine and replace it with an entirely new unit. Some say that electrification might be on the table too, but we’ll just have to wait and see.

Subaru Viziv Performance STI Concept Announced For Tokyo Show 10

Posted by Cristian Gnaticov in concepts, STI, Subaru, Subaru Concepts, subaru sti, Subaru WRX STI, Tokyo Auto Salon on 01 10th, 2018


Subaru has given the Viziv Concept a more aggressive stance, and probably some changes beneath the skin, as they’re now going to unveil it at the 2018 Tokyo Auto Salon, later this week.

Named Subaru Viziv Performance STI Concept, it features a more aggressive front end, a muscular hood, wide wheel arches, large rear wing, red accents, and an ‘STI’ badge on the front grille.

It’s unknown at the moment what engine it carries, but since it’s expected to preview the next generation WRX STI, which is due in a few years, it’s likely powered by a new boxer engine, smaller than the current 2.5-liter unit that makes 305hp.

Subaru Tecnica International (STI) will also have a couple of other hot cars on display in Tokyo, from January 12, such as the Levorg STI Sport and BRZ STI Sport. These will be joined by the BRZ GT300 2017, WRX STI NBR Challenge 2016, Legacy RS 1993 New Zealand Rally, and Impreza 555 1996 San Remo Rally racers.

The WRX STI S208, a track-ready version of the car aimed solely at the Japanese market, will sit under the spotlight of the event as well.

Subaru Says Next WRX Will Look Like Viziv Concept 18
Dec
Posted by Brad Anderson in Reports, Subaru, Subaru Concepts, Subaru WRX on 12 18th, 2017


Subaru says that the next-generation WRX will bear a close resemblance to the Viziv Performance concept unveiled a couple of months ago.

Speaking with Autocar, Subaru design chief Mamoru Ishii said that the positive reception to the Viziv has encouraged the carmaker not to mess with the design significantly when the next WRX hits the road.

“Such a car brings lots of expectation, from within the company and from our customers. What we know is that our customers’ lifestyles are changing and we have to respond to that. The question was whether we have done that in a correct way with this concept.

“For instance, we know that autonomous and connective technology are coming, and for many customers that is great, but we don’t think that is what all of our customers want. For some, driving pleasure is still very important and that is what we are exploring,” Ishii said.

According to Ishii, customers can expect to see the next WRX adopting a similar body shape, bold arches, and bonnet scoop to the concept.

Subaru intends on launching the next-generation WRX in 2020 and will build the sedan around the Subaru Global Platform. Interestingly, Ishii revealed that the brand has some flexibility when it comes to what powertrain it will offer for the WRX, indicating that something other than a boxer engine is a real possibility.
