Next Generation Subaru WRX To Get 2.0L, 270-HP Powerplant

Subaru has confirmed that their next generation WRX will pack a new 2.0L turbocharged flat-four powerplant with a targeted horsepower rating of 270-hp. The powerplant will be a turbocharged version of the FA20 powerplant found in the new Subaru BRZ.

Despite being half a liter smaller than the current 2.5L, 265-hp engine, the turbocharged FA20 engine will ultimately be more powerful and more fuel efficient. Either way, we're happy that the WRX is returning with a turbocharged powerplant and we'll get to enjoy the infamous rumble that a turbocharged flat-four produces.

The new WRX will further separate itself from the standard Impreza models with this powerplant. The standard Impreza is equipped with a 2.0L flat-four from Subaru's FB-series of engines which lacks the new-age technology found in the FA20 engine.

Subaru didn't confirm when we'll see the new WRX though, but we're anticipating that it'll make its debut sometime next year and will be available as a 2013 model.
