New York auto show: 5 cars of the future
Subaru WRX Concept
Subaru's WRX car has been a popular sport compact for many years and this concept car hints at the future design of the next generation WRX.
The Subaru WRX Concept shown at the New York auto show showcases a new look for the car that is substantially lower and wider than the current model. The new grille is larger and bolder looking, drawing more attention to the hood scoop that the WRX is known for.
The wide stance and flared wheel arches draw attention to the all-wheel-drive system, while the rear features a dramatically curved trunk lid that functions as a rear spoiler. An unusually wide rear bumper draws attention to the four large tailpipes, which add to the aggressive look.
The Subaru WRX Concept also features a new paint color, WR blue pearl III, a new twist on the blue color that has become synonymous with the WRX, while fluorescent yellow accents complete the unique look.
