Presented by Subaru at the 2013 New York Auto Show, the WRX Concept hints at the design language of the next generation WRX, a high-performance sedan with a bold, aggressive design.

The exterior of the Subaru WRX Concept conveys the car’s character through a low stance, a wedge-shaped profile, and a bold surface treatment with sharp lines and powerful fender flares.

The aggressive front end design features a prominent hexagonal grille with a three dimensional mesh pattern and new hawk-eye headlights that integrate the company’s family design heritage.

The large air openings, the fender ducts and the well integrated hood scoop underline the high-performance credentials.

The compact cabin greenhouse draws attention to the body and focuses attention to the large wheel arches.

The wide wheel arches are the central design theme in a side view.

A sharp character line runs from the front fender through to the rear-end, intersected by powerful wheel arches emphasizing Subaru’s renowned AWD capability.

The rear design echoes the hexagonal design motif from the front grille and features a dramatically curved trunk lid that also acts as a rear spoiler.

The wide rear bumper adds to the powerful street presence of the car and is off-set by large quad tailpipes denoting the powerful turbocharged engine. The aggressive rear diffuser improves vehicles aerodynamics.

To further enhance handling dynamics, the WRX Concept features a carbon roof for a lower center of gravity and lighter weight.
