The all-new Subaru WRX Concept debuts at the 2013 New York International Auto 
MISSISSAUGA, ON, March 28, 2013 /CNW/ - Subaru Canada, Inc. (SCI) today 
announced the unveiling of the SUBARU WRX CONCEPT at the 2013 New York 
International Auto Show at the Jacob K. Javits Center. The design concept 
hints at the design language of the next generation WRX with a focus on sharp 
handling, All-Wheel Drive grip and turbo power. 
The bold and muscular design emphasizes turbocharged power and AWD grip in a 
more agile and athletic form. The SUBARU WRX CONCEPT blends the WRX's famous 
power and road-holding prowess with an even greater focus on sharp handling, 
steering and communicative chassis. To further improve handling dynamics, 
the SUBARU WRX CONCEPT features a carbon-fibre roof to enhance the already low 
centre of gravity and reduce weight. 
Considerably lower, sleeker and wider, the SUBARU WRX CONCEPT delivers even 
more street presence than previous generations of the WRX. The new grille 
design is larger and bolder and sets off the classic WRX hood scoop. A 
pronounced power bulge provides clearance for the new turbocharged engine and 
intercooler. A prominent hexagonal grille form and deep lower valences with 
air intakes are designed to enhance aerodynamics, add downforce and aid engine 
The three dimensional mesh pattern of the grille denotes the 
performance-driven nature of the SUBARU WRX CONCEPT and sets the Subaru star 
cluster apart, while the new hawk-eye headlights integrate the Subaru design 
A sharp character line runs from the front corner through to the taillights, 
intersected by the boldly flared wheel arches emphasizing Subaru's AWD system. 
The compact cabin greenhouse draws attention to the power and solidity of the 
body and focuses attention on the wide stance that provides a visual link 
between the body and chassis. 
The rear design echoes the hexagonal design motif from the front grille and 
features a dramatically curved trunk lid that also acts as a rear spoiler. The 
distinctive wide rear bumper of the SUBARU WRX CONCEPT adds to the powerful 
street presence of the car and is offset by large quad tailpipes denoting the 
powerful turbocharged engine. The aggressive rear diffuser improves vehicle 
The all-new SUBARU WRX CONCEPT features a new paint color, WR Blue Pearl III, 
which modernizes the iconic WRX look. Fluorescent Yellow is used as an accent 
on the WRX badge on the front grille, the brake calipers and the exhaust tip 
finishers, adding character notes to the design. 
Filling out the broad fenders are BBS "RI-D" One Piece Forged Duralumin 
wheels, featuring 245/40ZR20 Dunlop tires with an exclusive tread pattern.
