Subaru has teased the upcoming Subaru Viziv Performance STI Concept ahead of its official debut at the Tokyo Auto Salon on January 12.
Based on the Subaru Viziv Performance Concept revealed at the Tokyo motor show in October last year, the sports sedan has been further enhanced by the six-star brand’s performance arm Subaru Technical International.
The STI version brings a revised front end with more aggressive stature, wider bumper, new splitter and sharper headlights. STI's signature 'Cherry Blossom Red' colour ascent its badge, lower body kit and grille, while the rear is dominated by a large wing spoiler typical of WRX STI models.
Subaru isn’t letting on any further details, only saying the Concept “embodies the brand’s vision for the future of making cars that deliver enjoyment and peace of mind to its customers,” but the concept could indicate future styling for the company’s go-fast WRX and WRX STI models, with the possibility it will reveal new drivetrains such as an all-wheel drive electric hybrid system.
The maker has already said that the non-STI concept brings an evolution of its EyeSight safety assistance system that will roll out into production cars by 2020, and bring highly detailed and accurate GPS tracking.
Subaru will also display its Levorg and BRZ STI models at the Tokyo Auto Saloon along with the WRX STI NBR Challenge 2016 and BRZ GT300 Super GT race cars.
