Official: Subaru to Launch All-New WRX and WRX STI at MIAS 2014

In an interview with Tan Chong International Executive Director Mr. Glenn Tan, the parent company of Motor Image, distributor of Subaru automobiles in the ASEAN region revealed that the company is planning to launch the all-new Subaru WRX and WRX STI at the upcoming Manila International Auto Show 2014 in April of next year.

Mr. Tan didn't reveal much details about the upcoming new model, but did say that the WRX is aimed squarely at the luxury sports sedan market buyer such as the BMW 3 Series and the recently launched Lexus IS. This could mean that the all-new WRX could gain more luxury amenities enabling it to battle with these luxury brands.

Meanwhile, the WRX STI will be maintaining its positioning as a high-performance car with more than 300 horsepower. He said to expect more news at the upcoming motor shows including the Los Angeles and Tokyo Motor Shows which means Subaru will globally unveil these two new models then.

Of course, with its debut at MIAS 2014, it won't be a big surprise to see precision driver Russ Swift rock the all-new WRX and WRX STI then.

More details soon.
