Thanks to a fresh leak, we now know when Subaru’s next-generation BRZ, WRX, STI, Impreza and XV will enter production, and for some of the new models, it’s very, very soon.
Posted on GR86 Forums, the leaked product timeline was allegedly shown at an internal Subaru meeting, with the big news being confirmation of the second-generation BRZ sports car entering production in March to May (Northern Hemisphere’s Spring) next year.
There’s more in store for 2021, though, with the fifth-generation WRX sports car to enter production in late September to late December (Northern Hemisphere’s Fall).
And before the WRX’s STI flagship enters production exactly one year later, Subaru’s first all-electric model, a mid-size SUV developed with Toyota and reportedly named Evoltis, will do so in March to May (Northern Hemisphere’s Spring).
Subaru also a number of facelifted models on the way, with the first being the fifth-generation Forester mid-size SUV in March to May (Northern Hemisphere’s Spring) next year.
The facelifts for the seventh-generation Liberty (Legacy) mid-size sedan and sixth-generation Outback and first-generation Ascent large SUVs – all of which aren’t currently sold in Australia – will enter production in March to August (Northern Hemisphere’s Spring/Summer) 2022.
Naturally, all of the above should be taken with a grain of salt given not only the unofficial nature of the leak, but also the ongoing impact of the global coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Either way, there’s a lot to be excited about when it comes to Subaru, which you can read all about in the links above. As always, stay tuned for the latest updates.
