Update!

Subaru WRX Wagon Not Likely After All
http://wot.motortrend.com/1404_subar...after_all.html
Quote:
Despite Popularity, Subaru Says No Wagon For U.(S.)

Fans of the long running Subaru WRX wagon and not-so-long running STI wagon were both shocked and hurt when the 2015 WRX and STI debuted as sedans only. To industry insider types, this move was particularly shocking , as the approximately 16,000 WRX sales per year in the U.S. are split evenly between sedan and wagon, while 2013 STI sales broke down to about 2000 STI sedans and 1000 STI wagons. By not doing a five-door, Subaru is therefor effectively turning its back on half its customers. The official party line is that it’s just too expensive to develop both.

However, earlier this month we reported that Subaru is considering bringing a hatchback (properly called wagon in the Subie universe) version of the WRX to market. As told to an Australian reporter by a Subaru project manager named Masuo Takatsu, “We have received strong interest from the U.S., where the hatchback was 50 percent [of previous-generation WRX] sales, so we're now considering [a new hatchback].” Turns out that Subaru USA was as surprised by what Takatsu said as we were. So they called their colleagues in Japan to discuss the situation. Long story short according to our source, there is no Subaru WRX wagon under consideration. What about the Australian report and Takatsu-san’s comments? Some sort of mistranslation or misinterpretation went down Down Under.

Once again, it seems like the WRX wagon is officially off the table. Until, of course, it isn’t.

What's the best way to test the all-new 2015 Subaru WRX STI? We thought putting it in the hands of four-time WRC Champ Tommi Mäkinen might be a good way to prove just how capable, powerful, precise and agile the 2015 Subaru WRX STI is.

We think he did a great job putting the WRX STI through its paces.

What do you think?

The Subaru WRX STI returns to the UK, with a similar recipe - 2-litre turbocharged engine with nearly 300bhp, clever four-wheel-drive system and diff and a massive rear wing - but gets new technology and a hot hatch-rivaling price tag. Does the modern day Impreza do its rally DNA proud?

Subaru wanted to introduce the all-new 2015 WRX and WRX STI in a unique and different way. So we invited enthusiasts and critics from all regions of Canada and put them in the driver's seat. So what did they think of the new WRX and WRX STI? Their smiles say it all.

The Impreza is powered by a 2.0 liter 4-cylinder boxer engine which is normally aspirated compared to its WRX brother which features a turbocharged version of this engine. Power output is only 148 horsepower and 145 lb-ft. of torque. The CVT transmission is better suited for fuel economy rather than acceleration.

A best 0-60 MPH test time of 8.5 seconds occurred with the Traction Control turned "Off".

The third round of the 2014 Red Bull Global Rallycross Championship was held on a purpose built track outside of RFK Stadium in Washington, DC. Subaru Rally Team USA drivers, Bucky Lasek and Sverre Isachsen, began the event brimming with confidence. Nearly two years of development work on the team's Subaru WRX STI rallycross cars have begun to pay off and the team has now proven they have the speed to compete at the top. Lasek starts the weekend at the top of the timesheets, earning the #2 seed. Isachsen qualifies just .4 seconds behind. But in GRC, you never know whats going to happen in the final rounds...

On the same weekend in Europe, the STI team from Japan is tackling a different challenge -- the 24 Hours of Nürburgring race in Germany. Coined the "Green Hell", the 15-mile ribbon of tarmac through the Eifel Forest has seen some of the most grueling racing known to man. Over 200 cars will take the start, and only half are expected to finish. The STI team prepares all year for this challenge, and has brought the 2015 WRX STI here to win.

Before the 2015 WRX STI hit the streets, Subaru made sure it received the nod of approval from industry experts and pro drivers. See Laguna Seca track footage and get driving impressions from the likes of Subaru Rally Team Drivers Bucky Lasek and David Higgins, Ian Armstrong of COBB Tuning, Martin Musial of AMS Performance, Tony Barber of Turn In Concepts, Butch Eccles of ScoobyTuner, Travis Barnes of Snail Performance, and Gary Castillo of Design Craft Fabrication.

Hear their comments on the remarkable track-day performance of the STI, made possible by its stiffened chassis, enhanced handling, and Active Torque Vectoring.

I finally saw it in local dealership.

Looks a bit weird but then it is the far superior car compared to GVB model I have.
