The new 2020 Subaru WRX STI will arrive as the next-gen model. It will look very impressive and its design is based on Subaru’s Viziv Performance Concept. New WRX STI will look evolutionary and it will deliver rally-car performances. Of course, you can’t miss the iconic giant wing and vehicle’s recognizable conservative design language.

Interior will look incredibly sporty as the whole model. We can expect a new engine that will deliver even more power. On top of that, a hybrid powertrain is also speculated. This will be a huge addition knowing the poor fuel economy of the WRX STI model. Overall, we can expect numerous improvements for the next-generation model.

2020 Subaru WRX STI Updates

Many of the fans will spot new design at first glance. The 2020 Subaru WRX STI looks evolutionary and some features such as giant wing are looking really impressive. The STI variant offers sporty styling and new styling is more conservative than before. However, this is not a bad thing at all. We like how Subaru remained true to its roots with boxier shape and four-door configuration. We must admit, it is the most refined version of the Subaru WRX STI so far. Hexagon grille is present once again.

This time, the grille will be slightly wider. Slab-sided fender flares are all-new and we like new halogen headlights finished in the C-shape. Front fascia definitely looks edgier than on the current model. The result is a tougher look with the same level of sportiness or even more. Some parts such as 19-inch alloy wheels will remain for the next-year model.


The 2020 Subaru WRX STI will once again offer an astonishing color palette. That includes its famous Series White paints that will most likely be limited. Ceramic White is another beautiful shade that departs from the more popular Crystal White Pearl. Gray-Series will be in the offer too. Crystal Black Silica color is available as well. Of course, you can load an iconic Recaro optional package and unlock even more colors. Generally, no matter which option you chose, your WRX STI will look truly impressive.

Interior Improvements

The arriving model will introduce small interior improvements. For the start, wheels are pushed out further so we can expect slightly more interior space. The 2020 Subaru WRX STI will deliver more rear-seat space than Ford Focus RS or new Golf R. However, we can’t say the cabin is practical at all. Cargo area is not generous at all.

On top of that, you can only fit two adults in the back. As for the features, new WRX STI will offer standard keyless entry. The new armrest is available, among with the cupholders and latest phone integrations. Interior looks very upscale and sporty. Numerous STI badges are all over the place. However, besides the improved room and new technology updates, this model will largely remain.

2020 Subaru WRX STI Powertrain Specs

What will Subaru deliver for its next WRX STI? It seems like no one knows the answer. So far, all we heard about the new engine are pure speculations. The hybrid drivetrain is perhaps the biggest rumors so far. It will be a huge upgrade for this high-performance model because of its poor fuel efficiency.

The 2020 Subaru WRX STI will most likely deploy the same 2.4-liter turbocharged engine. This engine is also known as the “Boxer” and it will be upgraded for 2020. On top of that, the EJ25 variant will get a 2.5-liter turbo-Boxer that will produce 310 horsepower. There is no point in discussing such a large amount of rumors. We are waiting for Subaru to release full vehicle’s specs. Subaru’s famous All-Wheel-Drive system is standard and the customers can opt for the manual transmission.
