LONDON – July 29, 2013: The Subaru WRX concept vehicle – first shown earlier this year at the New York International Auto Show – will make its European debut at the 65th Frankfurt Motor Show on Tuesday 10 September.

The WRX concept hints at the final look of the next-generation WRX, a bold and muscular design giving it a strong on-street presence. Lower, wider and sleeker than previous models, the WRX Concept places an even greater focus on sharp handling, with a low centre of gravity and Subaru’s famous All-Wheel Drive system.

Subaru trademark design cues including a pronounced bulge on the bonnet – accompanied by the classic WRX bonnet scoop – which provides clearance for a turbocharged engine and intercooler, while also aiding engine cooling.

The old model is now sold out and the decision was taken earlier this year not to import further volumes. The new-for-2014 Subaru WRX production car, while not confirmed for the UK market, is under consideration. Changing market conditions has allowed Subaru UK to re-examine the feasibility of bringing the new car into Britain.

The WRX concept will be joined on the stand at Frankfurt by the Subaru VIZIV concept, representing Subaru’s future design direction and vision for technological innovation.
