    The Official 2015 WRX & STi Thread

    Can we all stop freaking out about the no hatch rumor? Until it's confirmed, there's nothing to worry about.

    Remember the iPhone 4S? We were all 100% positive then iPhone 5 was coming out next then BLAM! iPhone 4S.

    Mods, can we merge a few of the comments from the 2014 thread on to this one? I think there has been some overlap.

    So to feed the fire a little bit I would like to talk about powertrain choice.

    If Subaru uses the tired old 2.5 that's been used since 2009 I will freak out! I realize we haven't heard anything but, I feel like they will. I would like to see some innovation put into the 2015 cars and using the same motor reeks of complacency.

    Hopefully will will see or hear something from the LA Auto Show in November.

    I saw a story saying that it would use a 2.5 good for 265 hp... I highly highly doubt it, the new forester has a new direct injected 2.0. The new 2.0 is more efficient and creates more power than the out going motor. Why would Subaru not hop that sucker up and put it in the new WRX/STI?

    As far as the hatch, I could see the STI going back to sedan only, but not the WRX. I think the Wagon sells too well for them to axe it, I could see people who are on the fence jumping to the Focus ST and the MS3.

    Personal opinion, it'll be a 2.0 to keep up with competition. Focus ST is rocking 252hp in a 2.0. They'll want the MPG numbers to accompany the performance. Yes the WRX has a cult following, but they're not going to just dismiss the competition like that.

    With all that said, the one thing I can be CERTAIN about is that it will be a let down.

    Ah good, keeping with tradition, then. Every new Impreza model introduced has been something of a let-down to the existing fanbase, since at least 2002.

    I dunno. I know a LOT of people who really prefer the 5mt... including enthusiasts. I personally would love a 6 speed... but I've been finding more and more people lately who are considering or have already gotten a WRX over an STi because they'd prefer the 5 speed for a DD.

    That's only because the 5 spd actually has better ratios/taller gears compared to the current 6spd. If they literally keep the same gear ratios of the 5spd, and add a gear, meaning you can cruise in 6th while only around 2000-2200 rpms around 70-75mph, THEN it would be well worth it.
