After bringing a seriously hot concept to the New York Auto Show earlier this year, Subaru will finally reveal the production 2015 WRX at the Los Angeles Auto Show later this month. And while we've seen spy shots of the hotter Impreza (including the winged STI variant), Subaru has now released this teaser image, showing the bulging, scooped 'Rex that's nearly ready for its world debut.

What we can see is a car that's clearly been toned down from the conceptual version – we aren't surprised, really. But it appears that the added aggressiveness over the standard Impreza will make for a pretty hot-looking little sedan. Of course, WRX models have never exactly been pretty cars, and we don't expect this one to be, either. No matter – assuming this car follows in the footsteps of WRXes past, it should still be plenty good.

Subaru hasn't released any details about the WRX as of this writing, but again, we don't expect it to stray too much from the formula we know. Expect a turbocharged boxer engine underhood, all-wheel drive, and – hopefully – a manual transmission. Rumor has it the WRX and STI will lose their hatchback variants and go sedan-only for the 2015 model year, but we'll have to wait until the official LA debut to know that for certain. Stay tuned.

      I'm soooo excited! It's gonna be my next car, I know it. Of course, speaking as a 2002 WRX owner and seeing what happened after the 2008 body change, I think I'm going to wait two years to see what tweaks they make first :-)

      Isn't Subaru trying to make WRX/STi its own brand, separate from the Impreza namesake? If so, why still use the regular Impreza's body? It looks like the regular Impreza's chassis under that camo.

      Two things. 1. Ped impact requirements are ruining the noses and proportions of all our new cars. 2. Designers must get more creative to incorporate requirements. The BMW style straight shut line between headlights is hideous.

        Agreed, especially on point 2. I cannot unsee that shut line on the three series. Every time I see the car in photos or in person, my eye gravitates to it. It spoils the whole design for me. Not that I think the new 3 is particularly pretty. The nose looks like it's designed for burrowing.

      I think it looks great! Hope they bring that nice dark red to the available color list.

      I'll wait until the Advanced Touring Concept from a couple of years ago becomes the 5 door WRx. http://www.autoblog.com/photos/subaru-advanced-tourer-concept-tokyo-2011-photos/

      Definitely fap material for this morning, haha ... don't disappoint me Subaru .. looking forward to upgrading from my 2010. Sad face that no hatch will be available but that's ok.

      They need to put another crease in the hood.

      I really hope they're able to keep it similar to the concept.

      I'm not sure they got the hood scoop big enough... I liked the chunky 2000-2007 WRX sedan, but I think the current body looks better in the hatch. Interested and I hope it doesn't suck.

      Meh. Better perform great and have a good value to it after the bullshit they pulled once again with their concept car at NYIAS.

      If this thing looks even a little bit similar to the concept then it will be the first good looking Subaru ever.
