Fans of the automaker’s WRX and WRX STI should be pleased that replacements are just around the corner. The WRX will run with the same 2.4-liter four-cylinder found in the Subaru Ascent that makes 260 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque. That’s slightly fewer horses but a bit more torque than the current WRX engine. The WRX STI gets a much stouter version of the 2.4 that makes 400 horsepower and 361 pound-feet. Both models are rumored to somewhat resemble the Viziv concept that was first shown in 2017.
