Leaking to the interwebs today are a batch of seemingly official announcement photos of the upcoming 2015 STI sedan.
Like the current STI, the 2015 model will feature a tall wing spoiler that adds a healthy dose of aggression to the WRX's rather drab rear end. I'm still nursing my disappointment at the lack of a five-door variant.
Scoops and flares
Like the WRX, the STI features a hood scoop and flared fenders.
Presumably the STI's suspension had been upgraded to give the top performer a handling edge. It's nice to see the WRX chassis in the familiar WRC blue, rather than the red that it debuted in.
The power and power-plant have presumably upgraded as well. Where the WRX features a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, the STI may feature as large as a 2.5-liter mill with over 300 horsepower.
Symmetrical all-wheel drive
All-wheel drive is a given, but there's no word if the WRX's CVT will make an appearance.
The upgrades to the body are subtle, but we're hoping for substantial improvements over the Impreza WRX's already impressive performance.
