First of all -- that would be incredible. Wagons are absolutely the best. And if you disagree... well you are apparently just to young to remember this beauty absolutely dominating BTCC

324240


But sadly, no...

Subaru may be a small manufacturer but they have their marketing ducks in a row. They know that the North American market is the biggest consumer of "performance" Subarus and they also know that by-and-large, North America doesn't like wagons. I can dream though...

The article is in reference to the front fascia and design language of the next gen WRX/STI.

For example, the VA WRX/STI wasn't a wagon, but the Levorg (which is) incorporated the design elements of the WRX for its release in Japan. That's the argument being mad here: we see the Levorg first so that's a heavy indication of how the next gen WRX/STI may look.

The earlier flying brick Volvos in the ETCC were bonkers.

Hmm..My current WRX is a 2012, and I'll be shopping for a new WRX in the next few years. If they look more like family wagons, and less like sports cars, I'll pick up a 2019.
When do you think they'll announce the new design/model ?

You should call Subaru and ask.

I'm not sure why you think any one of us has a clue on when they will be announced.

Historically, Subaru has announced at the Detroit Auto Show (it's been moved to June in 2020)
There's also the New York Auto Show in April of 2020

If that all fails, then Tokyo Auto Show is in October 2020.

I’ve been thinking about this thread.

The loss of Walter Mercado is an issue for the auto industry. Perhaps José Ortiz?

Personally I love wagons. I hope Subaru brings the Levorg state side, I would probably drop everything to buy one. The only problem is they’ve only made it with a CVT
