Both will be powered by an electrified version of its famous boxer engine. What is still a mystery is which two models will be the test dummies for this new motor vehicle. Also unknown is the size of the boxer engine and whether it will be a straight-up hybrid or a plug-in hybrid. More than likely, the selected model will be Impreza and / or Forester. They are two of its top sellers, and since Crosstrek already has a hybrid offer, why bother another so soon?
The choice of Impreza, which shares a common platform with Crosstrek, Forester, and now the new 2020 heritage, would make sense of a very good reason: Next generation WRX and WRX STI.
