Subaru Claims its Next WRX Will Actually Follow the Concept

Following the debut of the Viziv Performance Concept at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show, Subaru confirms reception has been positive.

The Japanese automaker has built a reputation crafting some of the best-looking concept cars we’ve seen in recent years, only to disappoint us when the production model rolls out with significantly toned down styling. But this time around, Subaru design chief Mamoru Ishii claims the next WRX will be heavily influenced by the Viziv Performance Concept. Speaking to Autocar, Ishii said reaction to the concept has been positive and he’s eager to see certain design themes carry over to production. 'We have built up this tradition with the Legacy, Impreza, and WRX,' he said. 'We want it to look fast even when it is parked.'

For my tastes it looks too high-tech. While it's cool for a concept to show off what it can do, all I see are dings on the boxy edges that are impossible to pull out with PDR from soccer moms and their young at the supermarket.

That headline sounds like something from The Onion, honestly.

Besides, it's Subaru. The car won't look half as good as the concept.

If they took a SVX to one of these concept shows and parked it next to the future concepts, more people would be studiying the SVX. wondering what it is still after all those years.
Bring back the SVX, make a REAL supercar SOA (AWD 575+HP torque vectoring, Hybrid dual clutches, motors at the wheels...

And what else can he say if that question had been thrown to him by the reporter? "No, it won't at all resemble the concept you see here."

I think not.
