Refreshed Subaru WRX and STI due out in 2018

  Refreshed Subaru WRX and STI due out in 2018 Don't count on seeing a redesigned WRX (and STI) until 2020According to Motoring, one senior engineer at Subaru says we won’t see a redesigned WRX until about 2020. With the current WRX introduced in 2015 and the new Impreza barely hitting showroom floors – and, not to mention, the fact that the typical life cycle in the automotive world lasts between four and five years – it’s simply too early to expect a redesigned WRX.

Subaru unveiled its refreshed 2018 Legacy, which features styling changes, a retuned CVT, and additional infotainment features. The sixth-generation Legacy launched for the 2015 model year and 2018 brings changes needed to keep this all-wheel drive sedan competitive.

With wider, lower grille openings and a new front bumper that compliments the new grille, Subaru aims for a sportier looking Legacy. The redesigned C-shaped headlights now feature the "Konoji" daytime LED running lights. Two new exterior colors Magnetite Gray Metallic and Crimson Red Pearl and two new wheel designs lend a hand in the sportier appearance. Now integrated into the lower fascia, the tailpipe also receives a slight redesign.

Subaru combed through the Legacy's chassis in an effort to improve comfort and drivability. Starting with the suspension, the dampers were retuned to help reduce initial impacts of bumps while also helping to reduce body roll.
