A lot can happen in one night. Just a few hours ago, Subaru released a telling teaser image for its upcoming new WRX.

Revealing a first look at the company's new performance hero, the teaser image landed after months of spy photos and renderings offered hints of what we could expect.

The carmaker's teaser campaign looks to have been brought undone this morning however, with a purportedly leaked image of the complete car surfacing in Japan this morning.

If the new photos is authentic - and it does 'line up' with the earlier teaser image - then it is clear that the new model's styling is closer in origin to the Impreza than to the mean concept revealed in March.

The new WRX does wear unique panels all-round however, with new front- and rear-end styling, pumped guards and Subaru's familiar bonnet scoop.

The roofline of the new performance sedan appears identical to its Impreza stablemate, although the rear door gets an upkicked belt-line for a little extra flair.

The big difference is of course in the face, with the unique headlights, grille and bumper all clearly inspired by the aggressive WRX concept.

The large wing spied on the new sedan back in April is missing from this leaked image, although we can likely expect it to reappear with the top-shelf STI model.

Subaru has yet to reveal official details of the new model, although it is believed a turbocharged version of of the BRZ's FA 2.0 litre boxer engine will provide motivation.

In the WRX, outputs will be easily maintained at or above the current model’s 195kW/343Nm by combining the engine's direct injection with more modern turbo technology.

Watch for more details to surface as the new WRX nears its LA Auto Show debut this month.
