Unofficial Picture: 2015 Subaru WRX STi

These leaked images reportedly show the new Subaru WRX STI, which will make its global debut at the Detroit motor show next week.

The model is scheduled to go on sale in North America and key global markets for Subaru in 2015. It will become Subaru's flagship performance car for the US, and is based on the new WRX saloon which was revealed at the LA motor show in November last year.

Subaru UK is yet to commit to taking the new WRX in either standard or STI flavour. However, Autocar understands that Subaru's UK importer will bring the STI version only to the UK if it can be sold here for less than £30,000. It is currently in talks with Subaru headuqarters in Japan about making this happen.

Subaru has declared the standard WRX as the "the best-handling WRX ever". It is powered by a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder turbocharged boxer engine, the same unit used in the new Subaru Forester, which produces 264bhp.

It is unknown what performance changes Subaru will make to this engine for the STI version, but at least 300bhp is expected for the all-wheel-drive saloon.

A new, more aggressive bodywork package is expected for the STI, alongside sports suspension and braking systems.
