Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid coming to New York together with an undisclosed concept


Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd., which is the parent company of Subaru, just announced they are bringing to the New York International Auto Show their first hybrid vehicle, the Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid. Nothing else is known except it will be introduced with the US specifications (with all-wheel drive), so the rest of the world will probably have different engine choices and some minor exterior changes.

But what seems more interesting is that Subaru said in the XV Crosstrek Hybrid Press Release that they are bringing a "concept version of its performance model". The main performance model right now is the BRZ, so does this mean Subaru will introduce the STi version of the BRZ? Or could it be the 2014 WRX STi? Guess we will have to wait for the New York International Auto Show that starts on March 28.
