Subaru's latest WRX specs gets leaked out. There are lots of upgrades to it this time round. Subaru has swapped the older model's 2.5-liter turbocharged flat four that produced 265hp at 6,000 rpm and 244 lb-ft at 4,400 rpm with the new Forester's 2.0-liter flat-four tuned to deliver 268hp at 5,600 rpm and 258 lb-ft of peak torque at 4,800.
The five speed manual goes out and is replaced with a six-speed stick shift. The WRX claims to go from 0-96km/h in 5.4 seconds. A CVT version will increase that time to 5.9 seconds.
The new WRX is said to be available only as a four-door sedan.
There's also an electrically assisted power steering, bigger brakes, 235/45 R17 tires, a stiffer suspension setup and a 9 percent increase in torsional rigidity over the regular Impreza and 41 percent over the outgoing WRX.
The WRX will debut at next week's 2013 LA Auto Show.
