The 2019 Subaru WRX is due for its next full redesign either in 2018 or 2019.

Although little is known about the next generation of the rally-inspired car, it’s a good chance that Subaru will take the opportunity to bring the model over to its new global platform. The new modular design will debut in late 2016 with the redesigned 2017 Impreza.

Under-the-hood specs are still being kept tightly under wraps. For reference, the current WRX features a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine producing an impressive 268 hp with 258 lb-ft of torque. The more powerful WRX STI uses an older 2.5-liter turbo making 305 hp with 290 lb-ft of torque (Side-by-Side comparison).

Interestingly, despite the difference in stated power output, independent testing by Road & Track reportedly found that the WRX achieved full boost and delivered torque earlier than the STI, hitting 0-60 mph in 5.2 seconds versus the STI’s 4.8 seconds.

Enthusiasts continue to be drawn to the WRX due its attractive value proposition and $8,500 price advantage over the range-topping STI model ($36,015 vs. $27,515). But will this continue to be the case in the next generation? That remains to be seen.
