Subaru Viziv Performance Concept Could Preview Next-Gen WRX

  Subaru Viziv Performance Concept Could Preview Next-Gen WRX But will the production car look as good as this? Let's hope that it will.An all-new WRX won’t hit the streets until the end of the decade, but at least now we have some sort of a preview to ease the wait. Debuting today in Tokyo, the Viziv Performance Concept is an aggressive high-performance sedan that boasts a multitude of carbon fiber parts to shave off weight. It has been used just about everywhere, including for the bumpers, fenders, roof, as well as for the spoiler at the back.

This year, the Tokyo Auto Salon begins January 12, and we should have coverage any moment now. As we wait for our freelancers' dispatches from Japan, though, we know that Subaru at least plans to have a booth at the show featuring the concept you see above: the VIZIV Performance STI Concept .

This year, the Tokyo Auto Salon (not to be confused with the Tokyo Motor Show) begins January 12. But while it does overlap with the Detroit auto show, don't expect it to be completely overshadowed. We know that Subaru at least plans to have a booth at the show featuring the concept you see above: the VIZIV Performance STI Concept.

It promises to set a new standard in the compact segment. Along with a stiffer chassis comes the first engine that runs on gasoline but can function like a diesel — this means an increase in low-end torque and a quantum leap in fuel efficiency.

While we only have one angle, it's clear the STI Concept is an evolution of the VIZIV Performance Concept we saw at the Tokyo Motor Show back in October. The front end is more aggressive, featuring new intakes and more aggressive headlights, as well as what looks to be more-flared fenders and, of course, a large wing. Sadly, Subaru hasn't given any extra details about potential powertrains, performance, etc.

From what we saw with the VIZIV Performance Concept and the changes we can see here, it looks like the VIZIV Performance STI Concept will be seriously cool. Unfortunately, Subaru doesn't have the best record of turning concepts into production vehicles without watering down the design. Based on how the 2010 Subaru Impreza Design Concept changed, it's a safe bet that the production versions of these VIZIV Performance Concepts will look quite a bit more restrained than they do now.

Nevertheless, the new Subaru Viziv Performance STI is said to preview the next generation WRX STI , but knowing that the Japanese car marque tends to drastically tone down its concepts for production, this one will likely follow the same route.

Subaru executives confirmed that the Viziv Performance Concept that came out last year will heavily influence the design of the next WRX, so this new concept previews the STI version.

Hopefully, we'll find out more when the VIZIV Performance STI Concept makes its official debut.
