Subaru's new WRX STI has been spied in its final production body for the first time - and while it's not the fat and wild sedan we were hoping for, it's exactly what we were expecting.

Although camouflaged, it is clear from these shots that the new performance sedan will draw - if only loosely - on the look of the WRX concept revealed in New York last month.

But, surprising no-one, the wild show car's monster proportions have been softened significantly for the production model.

Much of the new WRX's bodywork will be shared with the new Impreza, although front- and rear-end styling will likely set the model apart with more significant styling changes than ever before.

New concept-inspired headlights can be seen here, along with new LED tail-lights, beefier bumpers at both ends and lightly flared guards.

The familiar bonnet intake can also be seen here, feeding air to the top-mounted intercooler, while a large quad-exhaust arrangement is visible at the rear.

Gone is the wide track, low-slung four-door coupe roof design, massive bumper intakes and pillar-mounted side mirrors.

A turbocharged version of the FA 2.0 litre boxer engine found in the BRZ/Toyota 86 twins is expected, but with a Subaru-specific direct injection system (unlike BRZ/86’s Toyota system).

The move from the current WRX’s 2.5 litre displacement is being driven by fuel economy and efficiency demands.

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