Subaru WRX will replace generation not earlier than four years.
The new generation Subaru Impreza was introduced in spring 2016. As a rule, after a short pause after the premiere of the conventional model, the automaker is built on the basis of the "charged" WRX, but, judging by the Australian edition of Motoring in the near future, premiere will not take place. Presumably, the new generation Subaru WRX will appear on the market early next decade, and in 2017 Subaru will present only an updated version of the current WRX.
Source Australian publication claims that after the transition to the modular platform of the SGP, the new generation Subaru WRX would be faster than current models, but the release of the new car will have to be postponed due to undergo tests on the reliability and durability of the structure. However, there is another version that explains this long delay. Over the past year, Japanese media often wrote about the possible transition Subaru WRX hybrid power unit. It is possible that this fact inhibits the launch of the new model.
