Sound the bells of plug-in hybrid for the next Subaru WRX STI

prueba-subaru-wrx-sti-actualidadmotor-58The current Subaru WRX STI does not have much time of life, but we are already speculating about his next generation, a generation that could arrive in 2017 or 2018. So tell us Motoring, which ensures that the next generation of the japanese sports could already be in the head of your developers with a hybrid configuration plug-in. Much has changed the concept of the STI.

In the past large rooms, Subaru has shown us the features of the next-generation Impreza, hence could get the new WRX STI, but let us remember that the current model has been to follow their own path, even changing the name. It is possible that we are about to take place, a change much more profound, a change in the us to forget the past of the STI.

Subaru Impreza ConceptAccording to the source, the next WRX STI will fall in a hybrid configuration plug-in, so we can expect a vehicle of very high performance thanks to the increase of power. This new electrical system will be used to win in performance, but it also seems that it will be able to move in a completely electric for a few miles.

It sounds a little bit to the history of the Nissan GT-R, a car that was born one way and that now you will rub elbows with supercars. The Subaru WRX STI should not reach so far, but expected a jump exponential in terms of power, technology, performance and… what price?

Subaru Impreza Conceptit Seems that the choice mechanical will continue to be the boxer engine turbo that now makes just over 300 horsepower. Will win a few more horsepower. The new generation could get close to 400 horses, maybe, in a mere intention of placed at the height in terms of power to the German trio of compact sport Mercedes-AMG A45, BMW M2 and Audi RS3.

In any case, to know the end of this story will have to wait still some years. It is expected that it does not appear until 2017 or 2018, but it is that first we have to know the new-generation Impreza that the brand is ahead of us with two prototypes, one a sedan and another compact 5-door.
