Last week, we reported on rumors regarding the Subaru WRX getting a diesel engine option, and now it sounds like senior executives at the company are fanning the flames again. According to Autocar, a high performance version of Subaru's existing 2.0 liter diesel engine is being considered for the WRX, while the standard Impreza will get the normal version.
Currently, only the larger Legacy is equipped with the diesel engine and that's only in Europe. We've been expecting the diesel to come here to the U.S. in the Legacy, Impreza and Forrester models. We'd love to add the WRX to that list, and the higher performing diesel engine in that application would be very exciting indeed.
