Seeing Subaru's newest concept as a potential replacement for the iconic Impreza WRX STI

The 2018 Tokyo Auto Salon is one of the world's leading automotive exhibition events held in the Makuhari Messe, Tokyo, where many world-famous automotive manufacturers such as Honda, Toyota, Mercedes-Benz, Audi and others show off concept cars and/or versions production.

Like not wanting to miss the train, Subaru also took advantage of the 2018 Tokyo Auto Salon moment to present one of the new concept cars that reflect a fast car for the rally arena. Here is the Subaru Viziv STI Performance Concept, the hottest version of Viziv Performance that was exhibited at the same event last year which was touched by the cool and crazy hands of technicians from Subaru Tecnica International.

But the most noticeable touch on its appearance is the new front bumper is reshaped with a larger air intake and given the STI emblem, then the grille is revised slightly. The side sill of these concept car is also new, and Subaru decided to pair a jumbo-sized rear spoiler, and a rear diffuser made from carbon fiber in these Subaru Viziv STI Performance Concept. As the result, these concept car more like a circuit racing car than a rally car.

The manufacturer said that they made this Subaru Viziv STI Performance Concept to "Realize Subaru's vision of making cars that bring enjoyment and peace of mind to its users."

In our opinion, by looking at a car like this, how can it make us calm? On the contrary, it will make the heart beat fast waiting for when the car will be realized. Moreover, it is said that this is becoming a little "spoiler" from the figure of the new Subaru WRX STI. Indeed, Subaru needs a new formula to sharpen the performance figures of the WRX STI.

Reportedly, the model of this car will soon be discontinued sales in the European market following unsatisfactory sales figures, even though this car was recognized as a famous car. At the very least, by 2020 a new generation has emerged, though there is still little doubt. However, since the emergence of Subaru Ascent which is similar to Ascent Concept, there is still a little hope.
For the engine, Subaru still has not able to decide between maintaining the purity of its flagship turbo boxer engine or marrying a 2,000 cc 4-cylinder turbo FB20 boxer engine with a hybrid system that relies on batteries and electric motors. Yes, it's looks like a difficult choice. What do you think? *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | EVO]
