Does the Subaru Viziv Performance Concept preview the next WRX?

Does the Subaru Viziv Performance Concept preview the next WRX?

Subaru's got an attractive concept heading to the Tokyo Motor Show in October. "The Japanese automaker has brought VIZIV (Vision for Innovation") SUVs to other shows that will make it to production. These special editions, it appears, are meant exclusively for the Japanese domestic market, but Subaru will have plenty of other things for a worldwide audience to see in Tokyo, and we'll have them all for you here as we get more details. The company will preview its future lineup with what it calls a sporty sedan using the Viziv Performance Concept name.

It's not the only debut on Subaru's stand; the brand is also showing a limited-run version of the WRX STI, named S208.

As much as we would like to see new models like the STI as quickly as possible, Subaru is unsurprisingly focusing on the release of family-orientated SUV's like the brands upcoming 7-seat Ascent which should reap bigger profits in markets like the USA and Australia.

Despite the release of an all-new Impreza, those hoping for the quick arrival of a WRX STI version may have to wait a little longer than expected, as we are not due to see the new vehicle till at least 2020.

Anyone who consumes food or drink believed to have been contaminated should call their local poison control center or 911. The news has prompted U.S. health officials to release a warning to travellers to be extra vigilant.

Less extreme than the S208 is the BRZ STi Sport concept.

Subaru isn't revealing much about the concept just yet, but it has said the Viziv Performance Concept will feature advanced driver-assist technology that utilises the brand's EyeSight technology.

The first two cars Subaru is showcasing are the WRX STI S208 and a BRZ STI Sport.

However, what everyone will likely talk about is the new Viziv Performance concept which will likely turn out to be the styling direction for the new Subaru WRX and WRX STI; at least we hope so.
