Doesn’t it look angry. Teased here is the new Subaru WRX, a machine that we’ve spied testing in Europe (we’ve even got a video) and which will finally be unveiled in US-spec production form at next week’s LA Auto Show.

The latest reports speculate that power could come from a 2.5 litre four-cylinder engine that’s based on the Subaru BRZ‘s 2.0 litre boxer unit. We’re apparently looking at around 265 hp for the regular WRX, while the angrier STI could have over 300 hp at its disposal.

We can see ‘hawk-eye’ headlamps with C-shaped LED signatures, an unmissable bonnet scoop and an angular front splitter in the solitary teaser pic above, but our spyshots expose also a large handle-type rear spoiler, vents located aft of the front wheels, quad tailpipes and a rather prosaic four-door shape.

Not long now!
