If the rumor is accurate, the new car will either slot into the Subaru lineup under the WRX or become the new WRX and WRX STI. Subaru spun the WRX name off from the Impreza a while back, so it’s possible that the automaker could keep the Impreza as an entirely different model. Speculatively, this could be part of Subaru’s plan to return to the World Rally Championship that inspired the WRX name.
The rumors suggest the reveal date for the new car will be in September 2022. However, we do expect more rumors and details to filter through before then.
