2014 Subaru Impreza WRX

  • Subaru Impreza WRX teased ahead of LA Auto Show
  • Photo shows usual WRX goodies, including hood scoop
  • We'll know more details at the show

Subaru has officially released the first teaser image of its next-generation Impreza WRX. The photo, which shows the sporty compact's front end, comes before the WRX's official debut at this year's Los Angeles Auto Show.

While the photo doesn't show much, it gives us a few clues about what to expect from the next WRX. There will be a turbocharged engine, identified by the huge hood scoop to help suck in air. There will be xenon headlights, a dark grille, fog lights and LED running lights. And there will be dark wheels to give the car a sporty look. 

Unfortunately, we don't know much beyond that. We expect power to be around 265 horsepower -- the same output as the current model. We also expect standard all-wheel drive, a choice of manual or automatic transmissions and sport suspension. 

In terms of body style, we don't know what to expect. Subaru's front-only photo is likely a strategic decision to get WRX fans excited. The photo keeps us guessing as to whether Subaru will reveal a sedan, a hatchback or both. The current WRX is offered in sedan or hatchback guise. 

We're also not sure when we'll see an updated Impreza WRX STI. The current WRX STI comes in a similar package as the WRX but offers an extra 40 hp. It also boasts a limited slip differential, upgraded brakes and other go-fast accessories. Traditionally, Subaru waits one or two model years before releasing a new WRX STI. 

If you're interested in more information about the latest WRX, stay tuned to AutoTrader.com's Los Angeles Auto Show coverage. We'll have more on the sporty new model when it launches, including engine specs, pictures and other important details.

What it means to you: The upcoming Subaru Impreza WRX brings high performance to the latest Impreza body style.
