Immediately after Subaru released a tease video of one of their own, the new 2017 Subaru Levorg STI Sport, the industry was left bristling with excitement. While much of the information about this new car technology is still a secret, we have managed to gather a few facts about it. Slated to be released as a 2017 model, here are a few of the things consumers are likely to see.
2017 Subaru Levorg STI Sport Design
The way the outside has been presented is spectacular. It is refined and better. As we look at the last concept, it is evident this new 2017 Subaru Levorg STI Sport gets new grille with fresh designs. From the back to the front, everything has be refreshed. There are new bumpers, new front fender, air vents among others things. Looking at the sides, consumers should expect a larger set of alloy wheels combined with more aggressive side skirts. To make it look sporty, the side view mirrors will take on a sleeker shape. It is not even going to stop there. This vehicle will get a whole new and aggressive stance, lowering the car’s overall height. At the end, we are likely to see a less dramatic unit.
There are modern times and we all expect the company to pay more attention to the interior design. We still have no clue on how the inside will look like. All we know is that the interior design is going to be the key highlight. We expect to see billet aluminum pedals coupled with flat bottom steering wheel. The inside will also receive some major facelift. It is said that some Alcantara treatment would be done on the wheel, shifter, center console. The seat will also come with more aggressive bolsters to help keep the front passengers planted during those extreme maneuvers. On the tech side, we expect to a see a number of amazing features like, a large infotainment display screen and navigation system, all making the inside much better.
Engine and Performance
Information about the engine and performance engine is still sketchy. Some sources indicate that the new 2017 Subaru Levorg STI Sport will come fully equipped with the same 2.0 L engine that we saw in Subaru WRX S4. With that, this vehicle will be able to deliver around 304 hp and 295 pound feet of torque. Then again, there is also the 2.0 L from the WRX STI S207 that delivered up to 328 hp. We are hoping to see the company go for the beefier option. On top on the 300+ horsepower engine, we are going to see a 6-speed manual transmission, STI-specific wheels and STI- specific suspension.
2017 Levorg STI Sport Release Date and Price
The company has to released any official information regarding the release date. However, it is speculated 2017 Levorg STI Sport could be launched somewhere in the middle of the year or even early 2017. For the price, in the UK the base model is likely to go at around $39,448 at current exchange rates. However, this price is expected to up to a range of $45,000 to $47,000, before options, taxes and delivery, as well. Overall, this is a car to watch out for.
