Subaru plans to reveal two new concepts in Japan next month, with the Impreza STI and the Forester STI headed to the Tokyo Auto Salon 2019.
The two concept cars will take two fairly mainstream cars – a hatchback and a crossover – and give them a sporting makeover, though that doesn’t mean there’s all good news.
The Impreza STI Concept is a frustrating reminder to Subaru fans that there’s still no speedy hatchback in the automaker’s range in the US.
There’s still no shortage of appetite for a fast five-door, rather than the current WRX and WRX STI sedans American drivers get, but Subaru shows no sign of delivering it.
This Impreza STI Concept, though, imagines something along those lines.
It starts out with the regular Impreza hatchback which is available in the US, but throws on some extras.
