New 2015 Subaru WRX STI Illustrated as a Five Door Hot Hatch

|

If you check Subaru's public website or one of your local dealers, you can still order a Subaru Impreza WRX hatchback in the States – in fact, you can even choose between a 2013MY and 2014MY, possibly negotiating a lower price in the process.

However, that's the outgoing model, not the new, non-Impreza-labeled 2015 WRX and WRX STI that are available for pre-order exclusively as four-door sedans.

We haven't heard anything about Subaru having plans for five-door hatchback iterations of the series, with the Japanese carmaker stating that sedan models are more popular and also provide better potential for growth in this sports category.

You never know if they'll change their minds down the road, but for now, the only thing we can give you is this rendering from RM Design that turned the WRX STI sedan into a hatch, complete with a big rear spoiler.
