Fans of the Subaru WRX STi are in for some disappointment if they were hoping that the five door version of the hot hatch makes a return in 2018 as this is something that isn’t going to happen.
Subaru could choose to bring back the body styling as many fans want it. However they are tied to the bottom line in making decisions. There isn’t a financial reason for them to offer up the five door model. On saying this we have seen a recent design study and this was by way of the Subaru Impreza five door concept.
The Subaru WRX STi really hasn’t changed all that much when it comes to design. It offers up the 2.5 boxer engine and the cabin and exterior remain the same. However despite little changes having been made it has attracted buyers from all over the world.
Other car makers are making life very difficult for the Subaru WRX STi to give in to what fans want. This is down to rivals such as the Honda Civic Type-R.
As it isn’t similar to the competition it does make the performance sedan stand out. This means that they would both be fighting each other for the same thing. The car maker might offer up the sedan and the hatchback version of the 305 horsepower rally car and this may mean that it would bring in more buyers.
