2015-Subaru-WRX-front-three-quarters.jpg

Since its introduction in the U.S. in 2002, the Subaru WRX has been an enthusiast staple. Expectations couldn't be higher for the newest model, and Subaru gave us a taste of things to come earlier this year with the WRX concept. Now, the 2015 Subaru WRX has been fully revealed at the 2013 Los Angeles auto show, and things look promising for the successor to the famed rally special. The 2015 Subaru WRX is based on the current-gen Impreza sedan's body, and, as you might expect, features a similar profile. The WRX, however, gets a unique hood, rear doors, rear quarter panels, headlights, taillights, bumpers, and front fenders. Those fenders receive the characteristic flares, while the model's distinctive hood scoop is set more deeply to improve visibility. The front end vaguely resembles that of the concept, with the hexagonal grille jutting out past the headlights. Those headlights maintain the basic shape of the concept, but don't get the same wild, 3D LEDs. A C-shaped LED accent envelops the main lamps within the housing, which utilizes full LED low-beam lights on higher-trim models and halogens on others. Subaru says the front end look is meant to "evoke a raptor's stare."

She has a rather large rear, can't seem to find any behind shots.

 

I still love the hawkeye scoobies.

Wow, they put a CVT option in it.  Interesting.

 

Personally I wish they would make the STi with an automatic option.

Wheelbase looks too short, I still like the older saloons (sedans)

I've been following this car on the car sites and the option of CVT disgusts me in this car (well any car). CVT's are freaking miserable

I hear you have to replace the whole engine if something goes wrong with it.

I see a bright future for cvts.  nothing to switch (no loss of time between gears), always in the power band (don't have to figure out when/where to shift), less friction (better mileage).  While they may be boring, they have quite a few pluses.

From that picture, the back kinda looks like a BMW 3 series.
